Trying to add a 3rd party module



  • Hello all, I am new to this Magic Mirror. I got it up and running fine. I was able to change the weather info for my area. But I can not get any module to work, that I want to add. I tried putting in different spots in the config file. But that didn’t work.

    I tried different ones with no luck. I was trying to add the RSS and Stock ticker module.

    modules: [
        {
            module: 'stocks',
            position: 'bottom_bar',
            config: {
                stocks: '.DJI,MSFT,AAPL,GOOG,INTC,CICS,TSLA,FB', // stock symbols
                updateInterval: 37000 // update interval in milliseconds
            }
        }
    ]
    

    Can anyone help me where to put this at? thanks.

    Try this put it as your last module in the config.js

     {
            module: 'stocks',
            position: 'bottom_bar',
            config: {
                stocks: '.DJI,MSFT,AAPL,GOOG,INTC,CICS,TSLA,FB', // stock symbols
                updateInterval: 37000 // update interval in milliseconds
            }
        },
    

    The module before it must end in a coma as well just like the above example.

    So for example:

    {
    			module: 'weatherforecast',
    			position: 'top_right',
    			header: 'Weather Forecast',
    			config: {
    				location: 'New York',
    				locationID: '5128581',  //ID from http://www.openweathermap.org
    				appid: 'YOUR_OPENWEATHER_API_KEY'
    			}
    		},
    		{
    			module: 'newsfeed',
    			position: 'bottom_bar',
    			config: {
    				feeds: [
    					{
    						title: "New York Times",
    						url: "http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/HomePage.xml"
    					}
    				],
    				showSourceTitle: true,
    				showPublishDate: true
    			}
    		},
