Problems with MagicMirror modules, Calendar, weather-forecast, newsfeed



  • Hello,
    I have some Problems with modules at my MagicMirror. Actually I use the default modules but they don’t work as I want.

    At first my Code in config.js

    var config = {
    
    	port: 8080,
    	ipWhitelist: ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1"], // Set [] to allow all IP addresses
    	                                                       // or add a specific IPv4 of 192.168.1.5 :
    	                                                       // ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1", "::ffff:192.168.1.5"],
    	                                                       // or IPv4 range of 192.168.3.0 --> 192.168.3.15 use CIDR format :
    	                                                       // ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1", "::ffff:192.168.3.0/28"],
    
    	language: "de",
    	timeFormat: 24,
    	units: "metric",
    
    	modules: [
    		{
    			module: "alert",
    		},
    		{
    			module: "updatenotification",
    			position: "top_bar"
    		},
    		{
    			module: "clock",
    			position: "top_left"
    		},
    		{
    			module: "calendar",
    			position: "top_left",
    			config: {
    				calendars: [
    					{
    						url: "url google-Calendar",
    						fetchInterval: "60000",
    						timeFormat: "relative",
    						displaySymbol: "false"
    					},
    					{
    						url: "url 2nd google-Calendar",
    						fetchInterval: "60000",
    						timeFormat: "relative",
    						displaySymbol: "false"
    					}
    				]
    			}
    		},
    		{
    			module: "currentweather",
    			position: "top_right",
    			config: {
    				location: "Mering",
    				locationID: "2871813",  //ID from http://www.openweathermap.org/help/city_list.txt
    				appid: "My Appid from openweathermap"
    			}
    		},
    		{
    			module: "weatherforecast",
    			position: "top_right",
    			config: {
    				location: "Mering",
    				locationID: "2871813",  //ID from http://www.openweathermap.org/help/city_list.txt
    				appid: "My Appid from openweathermap"
    			}
    		},
    		{
    			module: "newsfeed",
    			position: "bottom_left",
    			config: {
    				feeds: [
    					{
    						title: "Nachrichten",
    						url: "http://www.tagesschau.de/xml/rss2"
    					}
    				],
    				showPublishDate: "false",
    				showSourceTitle: "true",
    				showDescription: "true",
    				updateInterval: "15000"
    			}
    		},
    	]
    
    };
    
    /*************** DO NOT EDIT THE LINE BELOW ***************/
    if (typeof module !== "undefined") {module.exports = config;}
    

    My first problem is with the calendar-module
    It doesn’t matter what I use for config-parameter. I alwas get the calendar-symbol in front of the event.

    2nd Problem with weather-forecast.
    A lot of people have problems with this module. At least a lot of people say that it doesn’t show.
    At my program it also doesn’t work. But the currentweather is displayes. It’s the same appid. Also if I comment out the currentweather module the weather-forecast isn’t displayed.
    I also tried other weather-forecast modules but no one worked.

    My last problem is with the newsfed-module.
    The title isn’t displayed. The PublishDate is set “false”, but it’s displayed.

    So, I have a lot of problems with the configuration of the modules and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

    I hope anybody can help me with these problems.



  • @Johannes said in Problems with MagicMirror modules, Calendar, weather-forecast, newsfeed:

    First problem, I use MMM-MyCalendar witch has more options for config and is working great. Try this one. And there are errors in your config.sys

    {
    	module: "calendar",
    	position: "top_left",
    	config: {
    		calendars: [
    			{
    				url: "url google-Calendar",
    				fetchInterval: 60000,
    				timeFormat: "relative",
    				displaySymbol: false
    			},
    			{
    				url: "url 2nd google-Calendar",
    				fetchInterval: 60000,
    				timeFormat: "relative",
    				displaySymbol: false
    			}
    		]
    	}
    },
    

    There are problems with Weather forecast, there is work in progress. Link to News Item.

    For your last problem there are some errors in your config.sys. Number and false/true never use “…” or ‘…’

    {
      module: "newsfeed",
    	position: "bottom_left",
    	config: {
    		feeds: [
    			{
    				title: "Nachrichten",
    				url: "http://www.tagesschau.de/xml/rss2"
    			}
    		],
    		showPublishDate: false,
    		showSourceTitle: true,
    		showDescription: true,
    		updateInterval: 15000
    	}
    },
    


  • Thank you for your answer.
    I’ll remove the quotes at numbers and true/false. I also will try MMM-MyCalendar .
