  • Added the module to the config file, it shows in the list below that is there, but says no helper, What is this and how do I fix it?

    You don’t need to mind No helper found for module. It means just that module has no node_helper.js to execute. And usually, that is not a bug unless developer made some mistake. (some modules work enough without node_helper.js)



  • @Sean That module is not showing up on the screen though. I put the code in the config file with the { } on either end. so will have to look into it further when I have time.

    Are you talking about MMM-JEOPARDY? I just checked it and it’s working normally. I did a minor fix at the same time so git pull in the MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Jeopardy directory for that update. The entire config.js entry for MMM-JEOPARDY is as follows:

    {
        module: 'MMM-JEOPARDY',
        position: 'top_left',                  // Works well anywhere
        config: { 
    	    useHeader: false,              // true if you want a header
                header: "This is Jeopardy!",   // Any text you want
    	    maxWidth: "250px",             // Stretch or constrain according to region
    	    animationSpeed: 3000,          // New clue fades in and out
        }
    },
    

    Pay particular attention to the last } It has a comma after it



  • @Mykle1 no the weather module. used the link on the main page , I copied the code and inserted it in the config.js. and its not showing up. I can copy it and put it on here later tonight.
    But I think i dropped the jeopardy one in there to, so i will check and up date when I get back to that project tonight.

    Ok, weather won’t show without an API key, just so you know. The directions are in the readme for the module



  • ok got that one to work, now trying to get stocks put in. the following is the config file,
    /* Magic Mirror Config Sample

    */

    var config = {
    address: “localhost”, // Address to listen on, can be:
    // - “localhost”, “127.0.0.1”, “::1” to listen on loopback interface
    // - another specific IPv4/6 to listen on a specific interface
    // - “”, “0.0.0.0”, “::” to listen on any interface
    // Default, when address config is left out, is “localhost”
    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”],

    . it looks like it has started the stock helper and socket, but not showing on node screen, I changed the position to middle_center

    @navyvette87

    First, when you do post your code here, please post in a code block so that it is easier to read. My old eyes can’t look at that!

    Second, I don’t use the stock module. However, I did read recently that there was some problem with it. A forum search found this

    https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/4806/stock-module-problem



  • @Mykle1 Thanks everyone, got it all together, got the New York Times feed at the bottom, interesting quotes in the middle. Time, date, calendar on left top. Weather top right. Now on to find a screen.
