MMM-DarkSkyForecast - Yet ANOTHER weather module



  • @j-e-f-f installed latest version of your nicely build weather forecast module, but now I see that my personal web player is not working anymore.

    All content is displayed on the mirror, but there is no reaction when I press a play button (seems play buttons are disabled)

    To show the player on my mirror I’ve abused the widget module.

    It shows me 6 radio stations and a selection button for MP3’s on the SD card of the raspberry. (All simple stuff – so far no rocket science)

    I’m sure problem is related towards the installation of your weather module, as I did a rebuild on another SD card to try -out.

    Removing and re-installing your module or the widget module was no solution so far.

    Started mirror in dev mode, but here also I don’t see any problem.

    As I read here that you updated this module to use the Nunjucks html templating system, I suspect it has a relation with my html code I’m using in the widget module.

    See below code in the config. Perhaps somebody can port this code according the Nunjucks html. (sound lick chinees for me  )

       {
       		disabled: false, 
       		module: "MMM-Widget",

    Maybe there are other ways to embed my player on the mirror, but for now MMM-Widget was the only thing I found to do.

    Hope somebody can help me out.

    Thx.

    @johans If you disable the MMM-DarkSkyForecast module do you get your web player functionality back?



  • @johans
    I’ll guess something went wrong when I paste the code

  • @j-e-f-f
    No, It doesn’t come back.
    I made a new installation on fresh SD card.
    All works fine without installing your module, after that it’s not working anymore.



  • When I run directly in the browser, it’s OK, but thats not the main goal, should run via the MagicMirror.



  • I posted an issue on your module link in GitHub, but no response yet. Please see this link for details. Both the config in the link as well as the one below do the same thing…loading infinitely.

    		{
    			module: 'MMM-DarkSkyForecast',
    			header: "Weather",
    			position: 'top_center',
    			disabled: false,
    			config: {
    				updateInterval: 10,
    				units: 'us',
    				forecastHeaderText: "O'Neill, NE",
    				iconset: '5c',
    				apiKey: 'blocked for privacy',
    				latitude: '42.457649',
    				longitude: '-98.647789',
    				forecastLayout: 'tiled',```
    			},
    		},

    @hco125
    Time to go do some debugging. Ican imagine noone will be able to help you with the information given.

    Please do the following:
    Start the mirror in dev mode

    npm start dev
    

    OR

    Open the mirror webpage on another browser (MIRRORIP:8080), press F12 for dev mode

    In both cases, try to find error messages referring to this module and post them here.



  • I stripped down my MagicMirror configuration as well, so that we know that another module is not interfering. The modules that ARE on this config include: alert, updatenotification, MMM-ModuleScheduler, clock, MMM-AlarmClock, MMM-DarkSkyForecast, and MMM-Screencast. Here are the errors in the console running MagicMirror and accessing on Chrome with those modules running.

    However, I then stripped ALL modules EXCEPT MMM-DarkSkyForecast and rechecked the console. I get NO errors, and the log is as follows, but the modules still loads infinitely, with no display of weather (see screenshot, below):

    So after adding in one module at a time to determine which one was throwing the errors I posted above, it is the default MagicMirror “clock” module, and I do not believe it is the cause of the MMM-DarkSkyForecast problems.


  • Project Sponsor Module Developer

    @johans @hco125 i believe your issues are related. If the module runs in the web browser, but not on the mirror, then we’re seeing an issue with the difference in JavaScript syntax supported by Chrome versus Electron. I’ll need to debug your configs in Electron running on the Pi, as the errors will only be seen in the browser console.

    Sorry I’ve been slow to respond. I just got back from visiting family for the holidays so I haven’t been checking this forum at all nor the issue list in my git repo. Will take a look and let you know if I find any problems.



  • Looks very nice. Is there a way to get the “feels like” temperature, too? I can’t find anything about it.
