I cant load 3rd party modules to my smart mirror.



  • So to be clear, I am not the greatest at coding software and stuff like that. Im doing this for my senior project. I am trying to add MMM-NFL by fewieden to my smart mirror. Its just the formatting wont work and I am so frustrated with it.

                {
                        module: 'MMM-NFL',
                        header: 'NFL Scores',
                        position: 'bottom_right',
                        config: {
                                     colored true
                                     reloadInterval 1800000
                        }
    

    I tried my best with the coding it just wont work. I dont know if I accidentally edited other parts of the ‘nano config/config.js’. If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Brenj

    {
    	module: 'MMM-NFL',
    	header: 'NFL Scores',
    	position: 'bottom_right',
    	config: {
    		colored: true,
    		reloadInterval: 1800000
    	}
    },
    

    You missed some commas and a }



  • @yawns thanks so much for responding. I copied exactly what you said but it still wont work UGH.

    I think it has something to do with the ending of the coding.

          {
                        module: 'MMM-NFL',
                        header: 'NFL Scores',
                        position: 'bottom_right',
                        config: {
                                colored true,
                                reloadInterval 1800000
                        }
                },
        ]
    

    };
    /*************** DO NOT EDIT THE LINE BELOW ***************/
    if (typeof module !== “undefined”) {module.exports = config;)

    I literally dont know whats wrong with this, I may just have to start the whole thing over.

    Thanks again,
    Brenj

    @Brenj you are missing a :

    between colored and true
    And between
    Reloadinterval and 18000000



  • I did that and still nothing. I’ve been trying to figure out this for the past few days this is making me mad, lol. But thanks for your guys’ help. I might just start over, it would probably make it easier. Do you guys by chance know how to start the coding over? Again thanks for your help, I feel like im asking too much, sorry.

    Download the sample config file: https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/blob/master/config/config.js.sample

    Save it to your pi into the config folder, delete/rename the existing config.js and rename the downloaded file to config.js

    Then start over again and try adding the new module. Do not delete the rest of the content

  • If you have config file copy config.sample
    Start again copy the sample file to your documents and downloads.
    Remove sample from the configuration file
    Start again
    Remember start with {
    Code
    Ends in },

    It’s not always easy to see what’s wrong as the code you are using could be wrong .

    as l’ve not used this module l cannot say
    Keep trying your get their in the end
    If it go wrong it’s easy to start again.
