"HIDE" and/or "SHOW" modules automatically...

  • Module Developer

    I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a way to HIDE or SHOW modules automatically via a certain time of day. I am sure I read about it a some point, but now I can’t find anything on it.

    for example…

    I would like to place 2 modules in the same spot (bottom_left), the recipe module, and the lunar phase module. And, have the recipe module show during the day, and the lunar module show at night.

    It seems that the lunar module will only work at night when the moon is visible to my area. So, to me it makes sense to show it when it is visible and a different module when it is not…

    So, I am wanting the recipe module to show from dawn to dusk, and the lunar module to show from dusk to dawn. (you know, to be ready for those pesky vampires!!!)

    Frankly, it would be awesome to have the lunar module to show the moon phase I am currently in 24/7.
    (those vampires don’t wait until I’m ready. They start their shit as soon as it is dark enough!!!)
    But, if it’s only gonna show when it is visible, then I would like to have a different module taking up the space on the mirror.

    Any help on this would be awesome!
    (something needs to be done about the vampire infestation in northern Missouri!!!)

    The modules you can use are:
    MMM-Remote-Control (to show/hide modules)
    MMM-ModuleSchedulert (to define when you would like to do this

    But there are some more modules in the MM Cosmos.

    Thanks for the reply…

    I’m using the Module Scheduler at the moment.
