MMM-earth



  • Hello,

    I wanted to load up this module but it does not appear to be working correctly. I get Hello, Mother Earth. (and a spinning icon). Can anyone confirm that this still works or has the source for the images been shut down? Thanks!



  • Hello! It’s working for me. My config:

    {
                            disabled: false,
                            module: "MMM-EARTH",
                            position: "middle_center",
                            config: {
                                    mode: "Natural",
                                    rotateInterval: 15000,
                                    animationSpeed: 0,
                                    MaxWidth: "45%",
                                    MaxHeight: "45%",
                                    }
    },

    Hmm, thank you for the response. I wonder what’s the issue then…

    This is my config for the two modules being discussed… (I also tested adding the disabled: no but that had no effect…)

    {
        module: 'MMM-MARS',
        position: 'bottom_left',
        config: {
            rover: "curiosity",              // which rover? curiosity, opportunity or spirit
            sol: "200",                      // sol date you want pictures from
            useHeader: false,                // true if you want a header
            header: "",                      // useHeader must be true
            maxWidth: "300px",
            rotateInterval: 5 * 60 * 1000,   // new image 5 minutes
        }
    },
    {
        module: "MMM-EARTH",
        position: "bottom_center",
        config: {
            mode: "Natural",
            rotateInterval: 15000,
            MaxWidth: "50%",
            MaxHeight: "50%",
        }
    },

    Try rebooting your system

    I have found that sometimes that is what it takes to get some modules to work after first install, and load and not working.

    Yeah, this solved it. Thanks again! Rebooting was always my goto with Microsoft stuff but I got spoiled with Linux…



  • @striiker - In the future, you may be able to get away with merely restarting the MagicMirror process. If you’re using pm2 with a default installation, it’s just pm2 restart MagicMirror.

    I’ve tried the reload/restart of MagicMirror. It doesn’t always work. I have been finding since this last update, that most of the time it requires a restart of the system.

    Hi! Thank you for the suggestion however I have a cron job which restarts MagicMirror every 5 hours. I do this because of the persistent issue of having something in Magic Mirror crashing, causing it to stop refreshing and leaving me at a black screen. The only way to solve it is to manually reload or restart Magic Mirror. So, while I was experiencing this issue, the system had restarted MagicMirror several times. As mentioned by @justjim1220 , the solution was to reboot.
