MMM-Memo not able to send messages to Magic Mirror

  • Hello,

    I have installed the module “Memo” and the memos are already shown on the screen of the display but I am not able to send messages to add lines to the memos. I tried:

    bolded texthttp:// text

    But I get the following lines on the screen from the pc where I tried to send the message:
    bolded text[1] 17426
    [2] 17427
    roger@Lappi:~$ bash: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden bolded text
    Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden means "File or directory not found.

    After that I tried it with the following command:
    curl -G -v “” --data-urlencode “item=Bonjour, êtes-vous allées dans votre boutique préférée ?”


    • Hostname was NOT found in DNS cache

    • Closing connection 0
      curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 8080: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt

    Now I edited the whitelist in the configfile with the IP adress from the Sending pc but the same result. ☹

    Can anybody help me to fill the memo stickers on my Magic Mirror?

    Thanks a lot for help ✌

  • @Fuzzy really? Nobody is going to answer? It’s been a year… I actually have the exact same issue. The directions werent too clear because I thought I followed them to the tee…

  • @sdetweil
    Thankyou for your quick response!
    I still spent days/so many hours trying to get it to work lol
    I couldn’t get it no matter how hard I tried and didn’t know why.
    Because of your response/ the link you commented, I was eventually able to have a memo be displayed…
    What helped me notice my progress was adding

    MemoDisplayIfEmpty= true

    to the config.js
    I am, however, still unsure of how to remove the entire memo, itself, though.

    What do I enter into the browser?
    Also, is there a simpler way to display the memo’s or do I have to type out


    everytime I want a memo?
    Is there a way to type a memo out like an email (the subject= memoTitle and the body= item)?
    Like, how MMM-Remote-Control now allows you to send an alert?
    I’d really like this if it were a little more convenient.
    This is such a cool module, and can’t wait to incorporate voice control (that will make adding the memo’s super easily/ is more of what I’m looking for.)
    Thanks again, and I hope Im not annoying you too much with my noobness lol.

  • @FruityBebbles I’m not the author, just another user trying to help…

    the code in node_helper.js
    defines how the module responds…

    and it says for add

    	this.expressApp.get('/AddMemo', (req, res) => {
    	var query = url.parse(req.url, true).query;
    	var level = query.level;
    	var memoTitle = query.memoTitle;
    	var item = query.item;


    and for remove

    	this.expressApp.get('/RemoveMemo', (req, res) => {
    	var query = url.parse(req.url, true).query;
    	var memoTitle = query.memoTitle;
    	var item = query.item;


    that is the only way this module responds

    so to remove, u need the exact text of the ‘item’ when u added it.
    u can use curl or http request , you don’t have to use a browser… I was just offering an easy way to test it out

  • Thanks! I appreciate your help, regardless 🙂 It’s people like you who keep me from giving up on thos stuff… I’m not a coder by any means, so thanks again…

  • @FruityBebbles no problem, glad I can help… you don’t need to be a coder… but some of this stuff is very rigid in its requirements…
