MagicMirror² v2.5.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.

Share your config.js right here....

  • This is a topic for a request from some that perhaps we could have a place to share config.js files…
    SO if you have something that breaks from the norm or a config file that someone is requesting you can share right here 🙂 [REMEMBER TO REMOVE ANY ‘KEYS’ THAT MAY BE IN YOUR FILE AND REPLACE WITH xxxxxxxxxx]

    Here you go… share away.

  • @cowboysdude

    As a file or as shown script?

  • @lolobyte I would go as a shared script… that way people can pick out something that works for them without having to get the entire js file. 🙂

    Great idea ! perhaps a photo code+photo ?

    I’ve seen that there is some chatter lately about organizing, adding, combining, deleting some Categories and Sub-Categories on the forums by the administrators/moderators. I like the idea of having a place to post config.js files but it is my humble opinion (not that it matters) that the “Show Your Mirror” category isn’t the best place for that. As a once, and still current noob, I would never have considered looking in here for config help.

    Take the category, CUSTOM CSS, for instance. That’s pretty obvious for the person looking for css help, if not Troubleshooting, in general. That’s just one example.

    Again, in my humble opinion, it would be easier for people that are ready and willing to share their configs, and those people that are looking for examples of configs (with mirror picture showing the results) if there were a category similar to the CUSTOM CSS category. Perhaps, as @cowboysdude so aptly put it, a “Share Your Config” category.

    I wish I would have seen such a category when I first joined the forum. It would have made a huge difference to have actually seen what a proper config looks like, and a picture of the outcome.

    For what it’s worth, I’m going to make a request in the Discussion category.

    I don’t know. I guess anywhere you’re allowed to. I was just voicing my opinion. I posted a request in the General Discussion category with my idea. The administrators and moderators here are absolutely brilliant. I’m sure they will have even better ideas than mine. I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t already have their own ideas for something like this.

  • @Mykle1 agree with your opinion. require one place to share config.js, to quick learn about implementing MM rather than read more categories.

    I think the general discussion forum is the best, until we create a “Show your configuration” section (we can move the topics later). Or if you bundle it with showing your mirror, you can do it in the showcase thread. But topics solely focused on sharing configuration should not be here.

  • @Jopyth I think yes moving it to Showing your mirror would be an awesome place to put it!! Can you do it for us?
