MMM-Page-Selector: A page switcher that can set positions of modules



  • @veldrovive
    Hi, just made a fresh install, and applied your module and MMM-Page-indicator.

    Pages are shown, but page indicator and newsfeed module are not on the screen.
    When I disbable MMM-Page-Selector, then Newsfeed & MMM-Page-indicator are visisble.

    As far as I understand, config is OK

    	modules: [
    		{
    			module: "alert",
    			pages: "all",
    		},
    		{
    			disabled: false,
    		        module: "MMM-Page-Selector",
    		        position: "top_bar",
    		        config: {
    			        defaultPage: "Page1",
    		                displayTitle: true,
    			        selectPageNotif: ["SELECT_PAGE"],
    		                incrementPageNotif: ["PAGE_UP"],
    		                decrementPageNotif: ["PAGE_DOWN"],
       			        autoChange: {
    				     	    interval: 100,    // Change page every 100 sec
    				            }
    		                   }
    		},		
    
    		{
    			module: "updatenotification",
    			position: "top_bar",
    			pages: {"Page1": "top_bar"},
    		},
    		{
    			module: "clock",
    			position: "top_left",
    			pages: {"Page1": "top_left", "Page2": "top_left", "Page3": "top_left", "Page4": "top_left"},
    
    		},
    		{
    			module: "compliments",
    			position: "lower_third",
    			pages: {"Page1": "lower_third", "Page2": "lower_third", "Page3": "lower_third", "Page4": "lower_third"},
    		},
    		{
    		        disabled: false,
    			module: "MMM-rain-forecast",
    			position: "top_right",   // see mirror setting for options
    			pages: {"Page1": "top_right"},
    			//header: "Regen Voorspelling", 
    			config: {   
    		                lat: 50.908529,
    		                lon: 3.965639,				
    				pleaseWait: "Wachten a.u.b",
    				noRainText: "Tot %s GEEN regen",
    				fillColour: '#0074d9'   // This is a blue color you can also use blue, cyan etc
    				}
    		},	
    
    		{
    			module: "newsfeed",
    			position: "bottom_bar",
    			pages: "all",
    			config: {
    				feeds: [
    					{
    						title: "New York Times",
    						url: "http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/HomePage.xml"
    					}
    				],
    				showSourceTitle: true,
    				showPublishDate: true
    			}
    		},
    		{
    			disabled: false,
    		        module: "MMM-page-indicator",
    		        position: "bottom_bar",
    			pages: "all",
    		        config: {
    		            //pages: 4,  // No need to set this
    		        }
    		},	
    		{
    			module: 'MMM-Cursor',
    			pages: "all",
    		},
    	]

    @Johans,
    Ah, I believe the confusion comes from the fact that old discussions on this forum do not reflect the current functionality of the module. I try not to make any changes that break old config files, but one was necessary.
    In order to fix this config, you need to replace any instance of pages: "all" with pages: {"all": "some_position"}
    New versions don’t require you to have a position prop at all and you can just use the pages one.
    For more information, refer to the README.
    Hope this helps.



  • @veldrovive said in MMM-Page-Selector: A page switcher that can set positions of modules:

    pages: {“all”: “some_position”}

    Thanks for the info, I should have read the README first. Sorry.



  • @veldrovive
    Thanks again for implementing the current page as “dynamic” class. If I get it right, you had to code procedures to add and remove the page class when switching pages.

    Ok, the development branch now has support for the new class name changes. When a module is shown on a page, it will be given the class page_{Current Page} and then the class will be removed when the module is hidden.

    Would it be possible to make these procedures accessible via notifications? I am still looking for a way to add and remove classes based on external triggers. A scheme could be like this:

    Notification: "MMM_Page-Selector_Update_Class"
    Payload: {"add":["Module_1_Name:ClassA_to_add", "Module_2_Name:ClassB_to_add"], "remove":["Module_3_Name:ClassC_to_remove", "Module_4_Name:ClassD_to_remove"]}

    If I am understanding what you are asking for correctly, this function seems to be out of the scope that Page-Selector encompasses. I would develop a module to include this functionality, but I have been inactive in the world of Magic Mirror as of lately. As it stands, I would post this request to the module suggestions forum or ask somebody to include it in a module that has a closer association with this type of purpose. MMM-Remote-Control could be a good candidate.

    OK - thanks for the reply anyway!
