[Remote-Control] Shutdown, Configure and Update your MagicMirror
@Jopyth Sounds great!
If you want the all-in-one package:
I could imagine you need to be able crawl and index all installed modules and openup their modulename.js files to be able to determine what configurable parameters it has.
That way it should be possible to vreate buttons in the remote to add an installed module from a list and add and edit the parameters.
This might need a change in the core structure, because it would be nice to know what parameters per module are availble and what the possible values are…
(Like what’s posted on most of the modules github pages.)
And how about an option to drag and drop the order of the modules.
Another (slimmed down) way to go would be to just look at the current config and make al parameters editable in a form. Maybe create an option to add a new parameter and it’s value. The users should know the name and possible values for the parameter.
In the future you could even dream about an option to ‘git pull’ a module to update it from the gui. Or to ‘npm install’ the depencies. And maybe even download and install new modules that are availble online…
But that’s just me dreaming…

@Jopyth I’ve added on mine ability to refresh browser, update mm and modules, and send alerts. I’ll probably work on installing and configuring modules next.
I’ll push merge soon
Looking forward your updates.
@Mr.Meeseeks Also if you think you are at a stage where we can work together, feel free to make the pull request early, and I will have a look and see if I can help.
Otherwise I will concentrate on other stuff, which you have not already implemented.
Yeah but if you make the changes to the config.js it takes all the fun out learning for people who really want to… I’m not programmer and this would be WAY above my head but I do enjoy tinkering with things… I realize that in the end a total package would push the mirror into more people’s lap though… progress and this would be just a natural progression of things.
You guys that do this stuff are truly amazing and those of us who can’t Thank you!

It’s the MAGIC MIRRORS TO THE MASSES MOVEMENT!! M⁴!
Work in progress:
Config is not yet saved and adding a new module is not yet supported, but the rest is mostly ready.
This is an awesome module. Thanks for creating
I tried to download it via “sudo apt-get install https://github.com/Jopyth/MMM-Remote-Control”
but nevertheless I get the following notice:
E: Unable to locate package https
E: Couldn’t find any package by regex ‘https://github.com/Jopyth’
I hope you have a tip, how I can solve this
@PaulB as the install instruction says
git clone https://github.com/Jopyth/MMM-Remote-Control.git
