MMM-MirrorMirrorOnTheWall installation issue



  • Have you seen that the code makers repo has changed 2 files like 2 month ago? Though it didn’t make any difference still stuck at the same place as you. I think it’s something with the iot part and lamda function.

    Let’s keep going 😉



  • @OceanK Well now i get no errors in Lamda but i dont think its working still this is what i did after a lot of reading in the internet and in the MM forums.
    Step 1. Delete your archive.zip you have on your Rpi
    2. Go to “MirrorMirrorOnTheWallSkill” open “src” folder and open to edit “index.js”
    3. At the very end of that file right before the very last } bracket
    enter the following:

    ,
        'Unhandled': function () {
            this.emit(':ask', 'Sorry I didnt understand that. Say help for assistance.');
        }
    

    notice the “,” right after the prior to last } before 'Unhandled" … so it wont give you a syntax error.
    4. Go all the way up almost at the beginning of the file “index.js” and replace the following:

    const appId = "amzn1.ask.skill.XXXXXXXXXXX-XXXXX-9b1c-3d309a950fcf";
    
    const MirrorMirror = require('./MirrorMirror');
    MirrorMirror.setup();
    
    const Keys = require("./certs/keys.json");
    const GoogleImages = require('google-images');
    var googleImages = new GoogleImages(Keys.cse.ID, Keys.cse.API_key);
    
    const YouTube = require('youtube-node');
    var youTube = new YouTube();
    youTube.setKey(Keys.youtube.API_key);
    
    exports.handler = function(event, context, callback) {
        let alexa = Alexa.handler(event, context);
        alexa.appId = appId;
    

    Make sure to change your appId with your own

    You will see no more errors on Lamda and if you ask after on the wall it will say i am sorry i dont understand and if you ask for help it will tell you what help it can provide but nothing more than that… yet.

    To be continued
    Denis



  • Oh after that step 5 zip it back again and upload it to Lamda and save it
    you should see no more errors

    Denis



  • Ok cook I will try it. Just one more question. When you zip the files for the first time. Did you hardcode the MirrorMirror.js with the cert paths as well?

    And then again hardcoded the cert path for the MMM-MirrorMirrorOnTheWall

    Am I understanding it right?



  • @richland007 So need more info here about this: At the very end of that file right before the very last } bracket
    enter the following:
    ,
    ‘Unhandled’: function () {
    this.emit(’:ask’, ‘Sorry I didnt understand that. Say help for assistance.’);
    }
    notice the “,” right after the prior to last } before 'Unhandled" … so it wont give you a syntax error.

    So if I copy the last part from the index.js it should look like this with that extra ?

    // Send publish attempt to AWS IoT
    MirrorMirror.showVideo(result.items[0].id.videoId, searchTerm, alexaEmit);
    }
    });
    } else {
    this.emit(’:askWithCard’, this.t(“SHOW_VIDEO_ERR”), this.t(“SHOW_VIDEO_ERR”), this.t(“ERROR_CARD”), this.t(“SHOW_VIDEO_ERR”))
    }
    }
    ,
    ‘Unhandled’: function () {
    this.emit(’:ask’, ‘Sorry I didnt understand that. Say help for assistance.’);
    }
    };



  • One more thing I notice. So Im going to do this from scratch again. when I did the npm install in the src folder(MirrorMirrorOnTheWallSkill)

    I did get these infor/error:

    npm WARN deprecated alexa-sdk@1.0.25: This version of the Alexa Skills Kit SDK is no longer supported. Please use the v2 release found here: https://github.com/alexa/alexa-skills-kit-sdk-for-nodejs

    do you think thats a problem ?



  • I still get lamda error. could you please add your whole index.js and MirrorMirror.js file? just delete your key. So I can see how its all together.

    then I can repack the zip and upload to lamda and try it again

    Remember to change the appId



  • As far as the “alexa-skills-kit-sdk-for-nodejs” goes… it wont hurt to try i guess… but i remember i have gone before and “npm install” individually all those 4 most important dependencies listed on section 2 of instructions (granted that we had many other errors before that would have ruined anything good) but that made no difference than.

    As far as hard coding the paths of certs in the mirrormirro.js file in the Skill before zipping it up…i have read it too that it should be done there also but it makes absolutely no sense to me. Because when the zip file gets unzipped in Lambda servers everything gets stored in “/var/task/…” (node_modules or etc etc directories) after /task/ so basically we are telling it to look at /pi/home/MirrorMirrorskill or whatever that does not exist. That does not exist in Lambda, unless it mirrors a mini Rpi server or whatever, but i doubt it because if you look at the other previous error logs the node_modules and its under diretories are now at /var/task/ not where we all have it locally respectively. However that syntax __dirname + “/certs/MagicMirror.private.key” in our case, means the directory stored plus the file name in nodejs as far as i can tell from a quick search since i do not know nodejs other than from here. So what i am trying to say it seems to me like its the right thing to have.

  • I tried your index file and replaced my key but I still get errors from the lamda test. So strange!

    I have to check more when I get home.
