I’m Nikola 35, from Croatia.
I started building a door for my electrical cabinet in my house and decided to integrate MagicMirror into it.
I’m programming PLC-s, CNC machines, BASIC and arduinos with a lot of help from internet, but I never writen a single line in java and I’m beginner at C++.
I came searching for help connecting my arduino based solar system management to MagicMirror.
@Kereknjek ok… I would open a topic in the general discussion area
I would also see this module… MMM-ArduPort and how to send data from the arduino to the pi…
I also had added an http server to my arduino ESP8266 NodeMCU and provided apis for data access as another route, which keeps the devices from having to be physically wired together
My name is Chris from San Diego, CA. I play hockey, play with tech stuff and work for the Government…oh and I am married and have two kids.
I just joined here and I want to build my own Magic Mirror. Is there a ‘starters guide’ somewhere I can use to get going?
Thanks in advance!
Hi there, I’m Craig. From Scotland and have been thinking about making a margin mirror for a while now. I have got most of my parts together now and am about to start my project which will be slightly different I think or could be a disaster we shall see!!
Is there a ‘starters guide’ somewhere I can use to get going?
There is no single guide, at least not here. What have you done so far? Are you going to be using a Pi? If so, have you successfully installed the latest Raspbian OS on it? If so, you’re one install script away from installing the MM software.
I suggest you use the “Troubleshooting” category for further questions. There are plenty of people willing and able to answer all your questions there. Not everyone reads the “Introduce yourself” topic.

Hello, my name is Pete from Mesa, Arizona, married for 35 years, father of 3 children and 7 grandchildren. Enjoy electronics/computers as a hobby and found MM to be interesting.
I have built the MagicMirror (without the mirror for now) with Raspberry Pi 3 and a 24" monitor and it is working great. Soon to be adding the traffic module and possibly delving into sensors, RingDoor, facial recognition and more!
Will post pictures when I get a moment.
Welcome to the old guy club. We gotta stick together!
@Mykle1 Quick question, will any version of the Pi work?
