Weather: Current and Forecast- not showing



  • Hello, i am new to programming and i was recently interested in MagicMirror. I got it working and now i am changing settings of modules (e.g. changing location). I stumbled across the problem where current weather and weather forecast do not work. I have no idea, because MagicMirror loads, so i looked at the positions and everything seems normal. I tried to move these 2 modules to the middle or bottom, but my notification feed then doesn’t show…Please help!!!

    {
    			module: "currentweather",
    			position: "bottom_right",
    			config: {
    				location: "Darwin, AU",
    				locationID: "2073124",
    				appid: "abcde12345abcde12345abcde12345ab"
    			}
    		},
    		{
    			module: "weatherforecast",
    			position: "top_right",
    			header: "Weather Forecast",
    			config: {
    				location: "Darwin, AU",
    				locationID: "2073124",  //ID from http://www.openweathermap.org/help/city_list.txt
    				appid: "abcde12345abcde12345abcde12345ab"
    			}
    		},

    I have to make 2 assumptions here.

    • The appid in your config is the example from the readme file. That won’t work. You have to acquire your own unique API key from http://www.openweathermap.org.

    • When you say notification feed I think you mean your newsfeed in the bottom_bar position.

    Anyway, both of your weather modules will work with a valid API key entered in the appid. I tested it with mine.
