MMM-MyCommute



  • This module is great, but it was nicer, to take starttime and endtime for the different destinations.
    So, I will go to work in the morning, soIneed this only between 5.00 and 6.00 o’clock and if I will go to the salsa party I need this only in the evening.

    @joela85 I just did a quick test on my laptop by changing the clock to mover forward a day at a time, and I had the module disappear and reappear consistently. I’ve set my config to startTime: '06:00' and endTime: '09:00' and I’ll let it run overnight to see if I can recreate your issue.

    I also like the Mon-Fri idea, as well as the individual time windows per destination. Will work on them over the next few days.

    @Blackmirror I ran a test overnight and my module came back on when it should have. But I did realize there is a fundamental problem with how I’ve architected the data pull. Are you using two instances of this module? If so I’m thinking that may be causing problems and possibly yours. I’m going to write an update soon, and I’ll have you try again.



  • I just went back into my config and noticed on one of the times I used a semicolon instead of the colon. I must have looked at that 20 times and not noticed it. Maybe just needed some fresh eyes on it. Hopefully that will sort it. I only have one instance of this module.

    @joela85 ha! I should have thought to ask for your config. In any case, I’ve pushed an update that fixes the support for multiple instances of the module.

    Of note is that you now configure the header in the standard way instead using the “headerText” and “showHeader” configurations. I thought I needed to do it this way when showing and hiding, but it turned out not be the case. So if your config looked like this before:

        {
          module: 'MMM-MyCommute',
          position: 'top_left',
          classes: 'default everyone', 
          config: {
            showHeader: true,
            headerText: 'Traffic',
            ...
          }
        }
    

    change it to this:

       {
          module: 'MMM-MyCommute',
          position: 'top_left',
          header: 'Traffic',
          classes: 'default everyone', 
          config: {
            ...
          }
        }
    

    If you don’t want a header, then just omit it.

    Will be working on configs for limiting to Mon-Fri and windowing for individual destinations next.

    MMM-MyCommute has been updated with some new configuration options

    • You can now specify hideDays with a list of days during which the module is hidden. You specify an array of numbers, 0=Sunday, 6=Saturday. To hide it on weekends, for example, specify hideDays: [0,6].

    • startTime, endTime, and hideDays parameters are now available as options for each individual destination. It should be noted that these parameters are superseded by the same ones specified in the main config. That means that if the main config parameters cause the module to be hidden as a whole, none of the destinations will be listed, regardless of their window settings.

    Thanks for all your suggestions! This has evolved into a very robust module and I’ve learned quite a bit in the process.

    Enjoy!

    Aha. Very nice. If you get the chance, please update the README with this information. It changed on me and I couldn’t figure it out for a while.



  • @j.e.f.f Nice, I will test it at the weekend.



  • Why isn’t this in the master list of modules at https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/wiki/MagicMirror²-Modules


  • Project Sponsor Module Developer

    @alberttwong There are many MANY modules that aren’t in that list… just browse the Modules section of this forum and you’ll find lots.

    I’m assuming the “master” list needs to be maintained by the author of MagicMirror, while any of us can post to the forum.

    Does anyone know if the “master” list is even maintained anymore, and how we get it updated with the missing modules?
