Newbie question on updates
Successfully running Scrobbler for Spotify listening, but getting msg on the header that I’m “2 commits behind on the master branch”…how to fix/update?
Normally, you would navigate to the directory in your terminal and run
git pull. If you’re talking about the MM software itself then you likely have to run
npm installafter that, as well.
@Mykle1 Ran both, still getting the ‘Update available’ message at the top of my screen This is specific to MMM-Scrobbler of course.
Just to clarify, you ran
npm installin the MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Scrobbler directory and the update message is about Scrobbler?
@Mykle1 Yes, I ran git pull while in the MMM-Scrobbler directory and got “error: your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge: MMM-Scrobbler.js
Please commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.
“error: your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge: MMM-Scrobbler.js
Well, you made changes to the MMM-Scrobbler.js, which is not recommended. That is what the error is telling you. So, you won’t be able to update normally.
@Mykle1 I did? I don’t remember doing that. I guess I’ll have to either start over, or examine the file. Thank you.

I added a script to this topic that should see you covered:
@Mykle1 I looked over the file, and honestly I am not good enough to be modifying files, believe me. I did notice in the MMM-Scobbler file that my username and API key appear there. I really cant remember entering this info there, but I do recall entering this in the main config.js file. Do these two parameters automatically get transferred over to the Scrobbler file?
No, they don’t automatically get transferred from one to the other so perhaps you entered them into the js file and don’t remember. In any case, this is enough for the update not to work.
Try this. Rename the Scrobbler.js file to something else, then in your terminal run
git pullin the MMM-Scrobbler directory. That should update it unless something else was changed
