  • in the MagicMirror folder do

    npm check:config

    fix 1st error, repeat
    I think it is the comma after the only destination

    				color: '#82E5AA'
      },   //< ---

    loading …

    is the default message many modules put up while getting their data
    but it failed to get the data

    so, this means there was an internal error in the module code
    open the developers window
    (either npm start dev, or use ctrl-shift-i when mirror is running)
    select the console tab, and scroll up to locate any errors, usually red text

  • @sdetweil okay, I’m new but the check:config command is not valid. So tried npm config and it brought up 10 errors.

    Npm config set
    Npm config get …

    What does this mean?

  • @sdetweil also added comma to that location with no success. Then moved to behind bracket and nothing there either.

  • @charp07 sorry, I get that command backwards

    npm config:check

  • @thoeng I ran into the same problem. there a few things you can do.

    1. Set the time that the module comes on and goes off. For example, I set my mine from 5:00 am to 8:00 am.
      startTime and endTime
    2. Hide the module on weekends. Mine does not come up on the weekends. hideDays
    3. Change how many times it goes to google with a request. pollFrequency
    4. add a cheap motion sensor to turn the display on and off (getting one now).

    Hope that helps.


  • I swapped to a newer branch of “MMM-MyCommute”. After install, it booted up on the first try. Happy that it is now working. Thanks to all the authors of this module.

  • Will this module still be updating in the background during the hidden times? With the Google API, I wouldn’t want it updating when I am not needing it. Thanks!

  • Is anyone else having issues with the MyCommute module hiding itself but then not re-appearing.
    I have EndTime setup for 8pm and also HideDays on certain days, however, once it hides, it stays hidden. Until I force it to show using the Remote module.
    Otherwise, this Module works great, showing all the traffic times as it should.
