Module to display sync'd text
ninjabreadman last edited by
I know many use their MM as a personal HUD, but mine is intended more as a family coordination point, with a variety of calendars and shared to-do lists, so we all know our shared and separate plans, etc.
I’m looking for a module to display simple messages and reminders from a text file that aren’t suited to a calendar or todos, for the rest of my family. I’d like it sync’ing with an online service like Gdocs or Dropbox, but not have to run a service (e.g. Dropbox client) outside of MM. I’d also like for everyone to have access to the document, so my family can all leave messages as well (even when not at home, and without having to connect remotely – for those less technically inclined).
I can roll my own module or cobble together from parts, but wanted to ask the community if there is anything precooked that would suit these requirements or even serve as a starting point. Any ideas would be appreciated.
This may be what you’re looking for.

Thats what i said… The module is developed 10 months ago, and i have never heard about it
This looks really awesome.
In addition i will link this one (GoogleSync):

Thanks, @Mykle1. I’m definitely familiar with that list, but none of the modules support shared and remote notes, at least that I can tell.
If it was only me adding the notes, it’d be easy, but I also want my family to leave notes for me. Afaik, nobody else can modify or share Gmail notes.
I also want anyone to be able to edit it while away from home, so I need to use an external service (a la Gdocs, DropBox). I think a Telegram bot would be good, except nobody in the family uses Telegram either. Maybe I’ll need to write a Twitter DM bot. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Finally, because this extends into online services beyond the mirror, I asked the forum because you’re a bunch of smart people!
