Compliments not displaying



  • Hi,
    I am totally new to the programming world and was wondering if I could get some instruction on how to add compliments to magic mirror.
    This is what i’ve got in my config file

    {
            module: 'compliments',
            position: 'lower_third',
            config: {
                    updateInterval: 30000,
                    compliments: {
                            morning: [
                            'Good morning, sunshine!'
                                            ],
                            afternoon: [
                           'Looking good today!'
                                            ],
                            evening: [
                                    'Wasn't the sunset beautiful?',
                                    'You look nice!'
                                    ]
                            }
                    }
            },
    

    Magic Mirror starts up fine but compliments never show, have I messed something up?


  • Module Developer

    @jin just put this in your config.js:

                  {
    			module: 'compliments',
    			position: 'lower_third'
    		},
    


  • Compliments not working for me either. On Raspberry Pi Zero W running Jesse Lite. Used Wieber’s guide to get it running (https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/1183/how-i-got-my-magic-mirror-working-on-a-raspberry-pi-0-zero).

    By default 'compliments" file does not output to the MM although all other default modules working.
    @cowboysdude : the default config.js is set up the way you described and it still does not work.

    Also edited config.js to place config: { compliments… and manually install compliments similar to what @jin has done but still no output on the MM.

    No errors or crashes and the later modules after compliments still work.


  • Module Developer

    You guys would need to post your entire config.js file minus any KEYS you have in there…



  • @jin you either have to escape your single quote inside the string or use double quotes

    evening: [
      'Wasn\'t the sunset beautiful?',
      'You look nice!'
    ]
    
    evening: [
      "Wasn't the sunset beautiful?",
      'You look nice!'
    ]
    


  • thanks for the replys guys
    @cowboysdude it still doesnt show any compliments

    this is the whole config file.



  • @jin the config looks good, I’m receiving the compliments with this. Can you check for errors in the electron console (npm start dev)? and the terminal?

    sorry, I’m also new to programming. Any ideas for next step?



  • @strawberry-3.141 all i get when i run npm start dev is

    > magicmirror@2.1.0 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    >electron js/electron.js "dev"
    

    no log file or anything



  • Probably not a coincidence, but both @jin and I are using raspberry pi zero ‘W’ with midori as our browser.
