Complete Walkthrough - Install MagicMirror on a PC - Windows 7/10
so, that looks like the address/ipWhitelist setting above…
(by default MM thinks it is in a closed box on the wall, so only allows connections from INSIDE the box)
Runs fine” = On the laptop, using Git Bash, I can start the MM2 normally with “npm start”.
but I don’t understand this…
with the change to the start script, it runs in windows without bash… just regular windows batch
I want to manage it from my desktop in my office using Git Bash ssh connection.
also, don’t know what this means… manage… it doesn’t NEED to run MM at all… just display it.
u could have two instances running on the base machine… 2 different ports…
the tablet accesses port(8081) , the base another (8080)
run the tablet instance as serveronly then no ui memory consumption on the base for that instance
to make a second copy from the first, just copy the MM folder to MM1, and change the config for port (and address/whitelist above)
then do npm serveronly for the tablet mm

You can not copy and paste though. I had to manually type it all in to make it work.
Still in MagicMirror;
right under the other “start”: “???”
go to the line below it and hit enter.
Then type in the blank space you just made.
“start”: “node_modules/.bin/electron js/electron.js”,
//DO NOT LEAVE OUT THE PUNCTUATION. ESPECIALLY THE COMMA AT THE END.
//I speak from expereince on this matter.
//Mykle1 usually has to help me find it after struggling for a couple hours.
NOW IT will RUN
Thank you agian Mykle1
I am really enjoying this on my laptop,
so much easier to do testing ect.
@Plainbroke-0 it was Sam, but anyway I cut and paste ALL the time. you need to add the code block marks around the actual steps to make them readable
