MMM-ModuleScheduler - Module Schedules and Notifications


  • MagicMirror Creator



  • @MichMich said in MMM-ModuleScheduler:

    Any ETA for https://github.com/ianperrin/MMM-ModuleScheduler/issues/4 and https://github.com/ianperrin/MMM-ModuleScheduler/issues/6?

    Wow - someone is keen ;)

    The first iteration of #4 has been committed. Global schedules can now be added to show/hide/dim all modules - see the updated documentation for more info.

    On the to list is to

    • add support for showing/hiding/dimming modules in groups
    • add the ability to exclude specific modules from the global schedules

    #6 comes afterwards when I can switch my dev environment to the develop branch



  • @MichMich

    • one schedule can now be used to hide/show/dim all modules - see global scheduling
    • one schedule can now be create to hide/show/dim a group of modules - see group schedules

    To do:

    • add the ability to exclude specific modules from the global/group schedules
    • unit and regression tests ;)

    Nice work! LockStrings are not yet implemented, right? Until then I can’t use the module.

    I’m using it like this… but it’s not working for some reason:

    {
    module: ‘MMM-ModuleScheduler’,
    config: {
    global_schedule: [
    // SHOW MODULES WITH THE CLASS ‘daytime_scheduler’ AT 06:00 AND HIDE AT 22:00 EVERY DAY
    {from: ‘50 6 * * *’, to: ‘0 9 * * *’, groupClass: ‘scheduler_mfm’},
    {from: ‘50 6 * * *’, to: ‘0 23 * * *’, groupClass: ‘scheduler_mfd’},
    {from: ‘0 6 * * *’, to: ‘0 23 * * *’, groupClass: ‘scheduler_sat’},
    {from: ‘0 6 * * *’, to: ‘0 23 * * *’, groupClass: ‘scheduler_sun’},
    {from: ‘0 6 * * *’, to: ‘0 23 * * *’, groupClass: ‘scheduler_nflg’},
    {from: ‘0 6 * * *’, to: ‘0 23 * * *’, groupClass: ‘scheduler_nflng’}
    ]
    }
    },

    Then for example a module:

             {
    		module: 'compliments',
    		position: 'lower_third',      
                        classes: 'scheduler_mfm'
    	},
    

    I did update the module with ‘git pull’ so that’s okay but it’s not rendering correctly and shutting the module ‘off’

    Did I miss something simple again? :)



  • @cowboysdude - During my testing of the global scheduling feature, I identified an issue which meant the initial state of the modules may not have been correct. I’ve committed a potential fix for this which may fix your issue too so please feel free to git pull again and test.

    If it doesn’t work, can you let me know what is output in the logs pm2 logs mm - you should see something like the following for each of your global schedules

    MMM-ModuleScheduler is creating a global schedule for scheduler_mfm modules using '50 6 * * *' and '0 9 * * *' with dim level undefined
    MMM-ModuleScheduler is hiding scheduler_mfm modules
    MMM-ModuleScheduler has created the global schedule for scheduler_mfm modules
    MMM-ModuleScheduler will next show scheduler_mfm modules at Tue Nov 01 2016 06:50:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)
    MMM-ModuleScheduler will next hide scheduler_mfm modules at Tue Nov 01 2016 09:00:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)
    

    The second line in the above log example will only appear if the schedule means that the modules affected it should be initially hidden

    LockStrings should now be supported - feel free to test and let me know if it works as expected!

    Will give it a try! Thanks @ianperrin !



  • Hi,

    I am trying to dim my mirror at nighttime - on weekdays between 10PM and 7AM, on weekends between 10Pm and 8AM. However, the below code does not do the trick - where is my mistake?

      		{
    			module: 'MMM-ModuleScheduler',
    			config: {
    				global_schedule: [ 
    					{from: '0 7 * * 1-5', to: '0 20 * * 1-5', dimLevel: '30'},					
    					{from: '0 8 * * 0,6', to: '0 20 * * 0,6', dimLevel: '30'},					
    				]
    			}
    		},
    


  • @anatius The config looks okay, can you check the output of the log pm2 logs mm once you have started MM2 and viewed it in a browser then post the results here?

    It should look something like:

    MMM-ModuleScheduler received INITIALISE_SCHEDULER
    MMM-ModuleScheduler is setting the config
    MMM-ModuleScheduler is removing all scheduled jobs
    MMM-ModuleScheduler received CREATE_NOTIFICATION_SCHEDULE
    MMM-ModuleScheduler received CREATE_GLOBAL_SCHEDULE
    MMM-ModuleScheduler is creating a global schedule for all modules using "0 7 * * 1-5" and "0 20 * * 1-5" with dim level 30
    MMM-ModuleScheduler is dimming all modules
    MMM-ModuleScheduler has created the global schedule for all modules
    MMM-ModuleScheduler will next show all modules at Mon Dec 19 2016 07:00:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)
    MMM-ModuleScheduler will next dim all modules at Mon Dec 19 2016 20:00:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)
    MMM-ModuleScheduler is creating a global schedule for all modules using "0 8 * * 0,6" and "0 20 * * 0,6" with dim level 30
    MMM-ModuleScheduler is dimming all modules
    MMM-ModuleScheduler has created the global schedule for all modules
    MMM-ModuleScheduler will next show all modules at Sat Dec 24 2016 08:00:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)
    MMM-ModuleScheduler will next dim all modules at Sat Dec 24 2016 20:00:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)
