@cowboysdude isn’t this the opposite of what i want?
Yes, it is.
Of course you could add buttons to launch other applications or send commands to these apps. But it is rather difficult to code interfaces for every app you want to control and parse the response of this app back to the MagicMirror front-end.
I guess best would be if the apps you want to control have some web interface or a command line interface sending standardized responses
@yawns thankyou so much for your useful reply… i actually only want two apps. one for the lifx lights and the other for the wemo app… i just want to know how exactly would i deal with an api that uses php without placing the magicmirror folder else where… im lost
