MagicMirror keeps crashing

  • Hi.
    I recently bought a new RPi3B+ and i have it connected to the official touchscreen.
    I installed magicmirror using the auto-installer and everything went smoothly, but unfortunately it keeps crashing, some times the app just freezes, other times it stays in a black screen or even closes completely, its not the rpi that crashes, because i can still use everything else, but only the magicmirror aplication, this happens every day
    what can i do to troubleshoot?

  • I had the same problem, using a 3B (not plus) and the official 7" screen. I eventually decided it was something about the touchscreen layer that was buggering it up, but never fully tracked it down.

  • Same here for the screen issues. I hate even offering this solution but…add a restart of the app to cron for every morning at 2am seems to mitigate the crashing issue. It’s not a fix, it’s a bandaid.

    Using pm2 the crontab entry would look like:

    0 2 * * * pm2 restart mm >/dev/null 2>&1
