    When this first came out I installed it blindly… I had NO idea what I was doing. I was getting all kinds of errors and I would take one at a time, go out on the internet and read what the error was, what it meant and how to fix it. Then I would fix it. I did this until I got MM working.

    Like any other ‘project’ the person assumes the responsibility to have some knowledge or the ability to go find that knowledge. The people that created this understood what it all meant and yes newbies may not but they must also be prepared to learn to expand their own knowledge base.

  • All the sudo apt-get whatever command can be replace by sudo apt whatever apt does the same as apt-get but provide a progress bar in addition.

    Also you put two point 14. And the first one is missing a step and there is a a space missing.
    cd ~/MagicMirror should be cd ~/MagicMirror/modules and ~MagicMirror/modules/ $ gitclone https://github.com/NAMEOFMODULE should become ~MagicMirror/modules/ $ git clone https://github.com/NAMEOFMODULE
    But maybe instead of https://github.com/NAMEOFMODULE maybe it would be easier to say moduleUrl or something ? because the url doesn’t onlt content the url of the module but also who did it. So if somebody who never used git before try to write https://github.com/MMM-AlexaPi for example, it will fail. because part of the url is missing.
