MagicMirror² v2.11.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.


  • Upon looking at it further-- in the “socketNotificationReceived: function(notification, payload)” function in the module.js file, it seems that when I run console.log(this.result), it outputs my JSON:

    Object { symbol: “MSFT”, price: “62.30”, date: “12/16/2016”, time: “4:00pm”, change: “-0.28”, col1: “62.95”, high: “62.95”, low: “62.12”, col2: “42453083” }

    When I go to the “getDom” function and run “console.log(this.result)”, I get:

    [object Object]

    I’m just not sure why that change occurs, but that seems to be my issue. Any help is massively appreciated!

  • @ZTA0796 The object that you get int the stocks.js is the deserialized javascript object. In your case it’s going to be a single row object. You could just access the properties list this:

    this.result.symbol, this.result.price, etc…


  • @alexyak So that’s what I expected as well. Unfortunately, it is somehow getting messed up between the “socketNotificationReceived” function and the “getDom” function.

    socketNotificationReceived: function(notification, payload) {
        if (notification === "STOCKS_RESULT") {
            this.result = payload;
            console.log(this.result);  //prints my JSON correctly console

    So the above works correctly. Below, however, it doesn’t seem to maintain and I can’t figure out why.

    getDom: function() {
        var wrapper = document.createElement("table");
        wrapper.className = 'normal regular small';
        var count = 0;
        var _this = this;
    	console.log("result is " + this.result); //prints "result is [object Object]"
    	console.log("result length is " + this.result.length); //prints "result length is 0"
    	console.log(this.symbol);  //prints "undefined"

    I apologize if I’m being thick, but I can’t figure out why it’s not working…

  • Ok, so I think i figured it out. Still not sure why it worked, but for some reason, running a console.log("descriptive text " + this) seems to corrupt or change the type of “this”. If I put two consecutive console.log() calls–first with descriptive text, second with just “this”–then it works. Basically in the example above, if I just comment out the first two console.log() calls, then it no longer prints “undefined” and instead prints “MSFT”. Sorry for all the trouble!

  • Several weeks ago this module seemed to stop working. It doesn’t generate any errors, just won’t display. Has anyone else seen this?

    Thanks, Dave

  • @Mitch1138 Yes same for me, this module no longer works.

    At first glance, putting the url into a browser results in a 404 error,MSFT,AAPL,GOOG,INTC,CICS,TSLA,FB

    The url in the module no longer works… it won’t give an error it’s a 404 error…

    I’m seeing if I can find a url replacement…

  • @alexyak
    can’t seem to get this updating on the MM display, any ideas? Was there any change to the original code?

  • @cowboysdude
    Did you find a working URL replacement?
    Have you been using another Stocks module instead?
