Newsfeed change Fade-in/Fade-out



  • I what to change the animation Fade-in/Fade-out for newsfeed. but i don’t find the right place in newsfeed source ala query animation slide up or down and so on.
    I would like a to have flip as animation.



  • In your config file you can add:

    animationSpeed: 2.5 * 1000 ->> change the 2.5 to speed it up or slow it down…



  • @cowboysdude sure, but the animationSpeed can’t change the type of animation. now the type fade in and out and this is what i want to change like an news ticker form right to left (marquee)

    @l0cal sliding animations on a raspberry doesn’t work smoothly, just so you know.

    I was intrigued by your request. I like learning new things so I went ahead to see if I could accomplish what you were asking. It might seem like a small feat by those more adept at coding but it was a victory for me, however small.

    Note: This was done on my dev machine. I have not tested it on a Pi. As others have stated, you will most likely find that the marquee effect does not run very smoothly on a Pi. You might want to disable all module animations (at first) to see if this will run acceptably on a Pi. However, it may not, in any case.

    There are some options available to you, as well. You can have the marquee run in various directions by changing directions='left' to left, right, up or down. You can also modify the speed of the animation by changing scrollamount='5'. 1 being the slowest, 20 being sickeningly fast.

    This is how I did it. I’m sure there are other ways.

    Line 164 in the newsfeed.js file should be changed to this:
    Click on the picture. When the window opens, click on it again to enlarge.

    Also, change the updateInteval: in your config to something like this, then adjust accordingly:

    module: "newsfeed",
    position: "bottom_bar",
    config: {
    	updateInterval: 28 * 1000,
    

    I’d like to know how it works for you so please post your results. Here is a short video of how it works for me.

    Sorry about the sound. Exhaust fan is running! My bad.



  • @Mykle1 Well quit farting and you won’t need the fan HAHAAHAHA



  • @Mykle1 thank you for this solution. I’ll test it in the next days and let you know if it works for me. thumbsup

    It’s very stuttering on my pi (pi 2). I’ll test some parameters but i don’t finde a good result for me. i think i’ll leave it for now.
    Big thanks to @Mykle1

    You’re welcome. We did warn you. The Pi is not designed for heavy graphics. However, you can keep it in mind if you ever experiment with something more capable than the Pi.
