Quick Syntax Error



  • Can someone take a look at the new config setup for MMM-DropboxWallpaper and tell me where the syntax is wrong:

    {
      module: 'MMM-DropboxWallpaper',
      position: 'fullscreen_below', // fullscreen_below is the best position.
      classes: "default everyone", // when you use MMM-ProfileSwitcher.
      config: {
        refreshInterval: 1000*60,
        search: [".jpg", ".png", ".gif"], // Or you can find target files like "PARTIAL FILENAME". (wildcard or regexp not supported)
        directory: "/Pics", // root of directories of Dropbox to be scanned.
        sort: "random", //"time09", "time90", "nameAZ", "nameZA", "random"
        tokenLocationIQ : "secret", // See http://locationiq.org/#register
        dropboxAccessToken: "secret",
        width: "100%", // 'px' or '%' or valid value for CSS dimensions units.
        height: "100%",
        mode: "contain", // 'cover', 'contain', 'hybrid' or any other values for CSS `background-size`
        dateTimeFormat: "HH:mm MMM Do, YYYY", // See. moment.js .format()
      }
    },
    

    All I did was change my directory and API codes, but its giving the syntax error during startup. Seeing anything?

    @smartsoldier said in Quick Syntax Error:

    dateTimeFormat: “HH:mm MMM Do, YYYY”, // See. moment.js .format()

    take out the comma after YYYY"

    I’ve copied your configuration and tried. but there was no syntax error.

    {
    		  module: 'MMM-DropboxWallpaper',
    		  position: 'fullscreen_below', // fullscreen_below is the best position.
    		  classes: "default everyone", // when you use MMM-ProfileSwitcher.
    		  config: {
    		    refreshInterval: 1000*60,
    		    search: [".jpg", ".png", ".gif"], // Or you can find target files like "PARTIAL FILENAME". (wildcard or regexp not supported)
    		    directory: "/MyMirror", // root of directories of Dropbox to be scanned.
    		    sort: "random", //"time09", "time90", "nameAZ", "nameZA", "random"
    		    tokenLocationIQ : "", // See http://locationiq.org/#register
    		    dropboxAccessToken: "",
    		    width: "100%", // 'px' or '%' or valid value for CSS dimensions units.
    		    height: "100%",
    		    mode: "contain", // 'cover', 'contain', 'hybrid' or any other values for CSS `background-size`
    		    dateTimeFormat: "HH:mm MMM Do, YYYY", // See. moment.js .format()
    		  }
    		},
    


  • I would try changing this:

    tokenLocationIQ : "secret",
    

    to this:

    tokenLocationIQ: "secret",
    


  • I tried taking out the comma after YYYY, and moving the : closer to tokenLocationIQ. Neither worked. I’m not really sure how Sean managed to run without syntax errors when I am using the exact same config…


  • Module Developer

    @smartsoldier I’ve copied from your post and nothing changed except some private values(tokens)


  • Module Developer

    @smartsoldier
    Most of the syntax errors could be raised by missing or exceeding bracket, comma.
    I suggest you remove configuration of modules one-by-one and try.
    Or you should upload a complete config.js here.



  • I also do not get an error when copy/pasting your config lines.

    $ npm run config:check
    

    does not give an error.
    You should try it yourself; a very useful command.
    Perhaps the error does not apply to the MMM-DropboxWallpaper config ?



  • Ok well I used npm run config:check and it found no errors, but I still get the syntax error message is red when I start up the MM. What is happening!??!


  • Module Developer

    @smartsoldier We don’t know. Remove all the modules in config.js and add one-by-one. Let’s see what happens.
