Layout problem



  • Hi,

    Finally got MM to work. I use it on the official 7" Raspberry Pi Touchscreen. But I do have problems getting a nice layout. What I want is to have the time and current weather side-by-side. I have searched but did not find a new module containing both. Right now it looks like this:
    lol

    Total mess lol. But if I manage to get them side-by-side it will look OK. How do I do this? I am kind of noobish so please overexplain!

    Best regards
    Fiskaren

    @fiskaren in what regions have you placed your modules?
    I would suggest regions top_left and top_right for the clock and weather.

    And you probably have to change the font sizes to make it fit.
    Add this in to your custom.css file

    .xsmall {
      font-size: 15px;
      line-height: 20px;
    }
    
    .small {
      font-size: 20px;
      line-height: 25px;
    }
    
    .medium {
      font-size: 30px;
      line-height: 35px;
    }
    
    .large {
      font-size: 65px;
      line-height: 65px;
    }
    
    .xlarge {
      font-size: 75px;
      line-height: 75px;
      letter-spacing: -3px;
    }
    

    Then change the font-size until you have the look you want.



  • @broberg Awesome, will try that soon after my trip to the store for a PIR-sensor.

    The clock is at top_bar and right now the weather is at top_left. When both are placed at top_barthe clock are one row over the weather. Will that auto-adjust when changing the font?


  • Module Developer

    @fiskaren no, if they are in the same region they will always stock on top of each other.

    use top_left for clock and top_right for weather and then place the other modules in the upper/lower third regions and bottom regions.



  • @broberg Well I am not really happy with the results right now. I have changed the size pretty much, but they still merge into eachother. And I realize I have to change the size even more if I dont want them to do that. And since that changes the font on every module it will look crazy and also unreadable.

    Here is a picture of how it looks right now:

    Is it possible to force the modules some pixels out? Because if so I could put them closer to the edges and that would probably solve the problem.

    The last solution could be to remove wind-speed. But it’s windy where I live and I would very much like to know the wind speed!



  • @fiskaren custom.css

    body {
      margin: 0px;
      height: 100%;
      width: 100%;
    }
    

  • Module Developer

    Do what strawberry wrote, it will give you more space on the screen.

    also

    This should change the size of the fonts in the top two modules only

    
    .currentweather {
    font-size: 50%;
    }
    
    .clock {
    font-size: 50%;
    }

    Awesome. Thank you both. It looks perfect now! :D



  • You might find this useful, I thought it was awesome when I saw it:

    https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/286/regions

    top_bar and bottom_bar are light gray
    top_left and bottom_left are red
    top_center and bottom_center are blue
    top_right and bottom_right are green
    upper_third is yellow
    middle_center is cyan
    lower_third is magenta

    All these regions will resize as needed.
