Possible Issue: MMM-GoogleAssistant with recent Google Assistant SDK update
Tried installing the MMM-GoogleAssistant today and tried to make it with the work with new google assistant sdk update… I ran in to this following error code:
File "assistant.py", line 133, in main() File "assistant.py", line 130, in main init_googleAssistant() File "assistant.py", line 124, in init_googleAssistant with Assistant(credentials) as assistant: TypeError: __init__() missing 1 required positional argument: 'device_model_id' hello from python!!
any ideas on what is causing the problem?
I’m having the same issue. I followed the instructions listed link text here and can get the sample assistant script to run from Google, but when I run the assistant.py script, I get the same error as above.
The SDK update changed the assistant initiation call. You registered a device_model_id (“Raddys-magic-mirror-device-id” for example) in the original instructions, so you have to add that to the assistant.py file. (Here are instructions on manually registering a device and creating a device instance–I don’t know if an instance is required for this to work, but it’s part of what I did trying to solve this).
Open the assistant.py code and scroll down to line 124. The current call is this:
with Assistant(credentials) as assistant:
In the updated method found on Google’s dev site, it should read:
with Assistant(credentials, device_model_id) as assistant:
Where you replace device_model_id with whatever you registered before.
with Assistant(credentials, "Raddys-magic-mirror-device-id") as assistant:
Run it and it should work!
