GIF update from URL with MMM-EyeCandy
Made the changes and did some testing this AM with no results.
-Was able to pull update and verify changes in EyeCandy.js were reflected.
-Updated config.js to reflect the example as well.
-Tracked my radar url for time stamp over time for change and no results.
See some commented code, do I need to uncomment as test?
Umm, it’s working fine here. The radar from your url has updated twice in the last 42 minutes and the module reflects those changes.
The update interval for the module is now 2 minutes but you won’t see changes to your radar url for 15 minute periods. That’s the url, not the module. Is that what you are talking about?
@Mykle1 Once issue pm2 restart mm or reboot, it will download\load gif from url and play only that loop.
I am going to isolate and maybe move to a new MM2 load to test. Will report back.
I just used your solution in another module I am playing with. My thanks again.
@Mykle1 Works great! I have no clue what the conflict is but will finish out my build and see if anything crops up. Thanks!
I now have a great weather radar live feed!
That’s good news. Have fun!
FYI… I totally rebuilt the MM and test the EyeCandy module as reported and the update worked fine.
After a completed my full build, it would do an initial load of GIF but then would not update.
I also have Google traffic modules not working as previous and think maybe there is a conflict.
I did briefly isolate in the config file, just EyeCandy and the update issue persisted.
I am going to try and take out modules from folder a few at a time to see until I can get an RCA.
Just wanted to give you an update to the reproduced issue in my build.
I am greedy. I want what I should not ask.
It is updating just fine.
What is not updating is when I use multiple modules by copy folder, rename folder\js file and module name inside. I even attempted to change some of the vars to emulate a new module to no success.
Would like to have 3 gif maps in cycle for City, State\Regional and National weather radar.
Have a similar problem with how to scale MMM-GoogleMapsTraffic, but that is a whole more complex module it seams.
At least I can work with one and maybe schedule them to work when there is an interest in that level of radar detail.
