I cant seem to insall 3rd party modules correctly, what am i doing wrong?



  • Hey folks i just made myself a magic mirror with rasp pi3 b+ and although it runs i am having a few problems.

    1. Clock seems to stutter when passing the seconds. It works fine for a few seconds. then freezes and then jumps ahead to the right second again
    2. I am trying to install the MMM-coinmarketcap module into the magic mirror. I copied all the files to /magicmirror/modules and then ran npm of it. Then i added some code to the config/config.js files. The funny thing is magic mirror will boot up without config error but the mmm-marketcoincap module is nowhere to be seen.
    3. Would the clock problem have anything to do with the fact that i keep getting undervoltage warning?? Even though i tried many diff cables and power plugs i keep getting undervoltage warning. The rasp pi itself boots up and works without a problem though.

    Thanks for any help!!!

    Sure. The under-voltage issue is likely because of your power supply for the Pi being inadequate. I would get the proper power for your Pi.

    Have you tried adding a module other than the MMM-CoinMarketCap module? If another successfully loads then your problem lies with MMM-CoinMarketCap.



  • @jiggly the picture of your file tree shows that your module folder is called MMM-Coinmarketcap instead of MMM-CoinMarketCap. You should change that otherwise magicmirror can’t find the module

    @jiggly I have had the same undervoltage issue when trying to access 5V from the monitors power supply, which just supplied to less power. Switching to a 2A 5V power supply solved the issue



  • I am NO expert and I could be 100% incorrect, but in your pic of your modules you dont have a return wrapper. you need this }, and you just have this }

    This should definitely fix it!



  • You guys are amazing! I did two things to get the module to work. I changed the name of the Module to CoinMarketCap instead of Coinmarketcap and also i added a comma at the end of } the wrapper. New to all this raspberry pi and coding so i wanted to say thanks to all of you people!
