Where to begin for module making?
Good Morning All.
I have recently started with MagicMirror, set up a few things… edited a couple of modules, just having fun with it you know.
Now I would like to make my own module as what I want doesn’t exist.
Firstly my question then I will explain what the module must do…
So where would one start to make a module and in what language would you code?
Now what must it do you ask?
But I would like it to have a “play this folder” option and to be controlled by an apple remote (which is already setup).
So basically I will have a few folders which will work as playlists.
Thank you so much for any help that you can provide.

I can highly recommend to use the MagicMirror-Module-Template. It has already build in some of the most common features modules need.
There samples of code for:
- External request
- Config parameters
- Custom URL path route
- Passing of messages (NOTIFICATIONS)
In addition it’s builds the framework for your module by running a script.
Excellent. Thank you SvenSommer. I will definitely use that to help.
I love your build. Very stunning!
