MMM-Formula1 module nog working



  • Hi Formula 1 fans! 😉

    No doubt you have the module: MMM-Formula1 already installed and running for upcomming season!?
    I just installed it to my MM2 setup and added the standard lines to the config.js file… yet…I get nothing on my screen when running the mirror! Not even a notification that something was not loaded correctly.

    Also I can’t seem to generate the iCal calendar for the calendar module.
    I installed the ical generator but it did not create a calendar for the calendar module the show.

    I can’t show my config.js file content at the moment cause I’m on a windows laptop in the moment and my Pi 3B+ is back in my bag. If you think you can help me out and need to view my config.js file content I can do it tonight when I get home from work.

    Hope I get this module to work. My sons and me can’t wait for season 2019 to get started!
    GO MAX!!! 😄 😄 😄

    Greetings from the Neterlands! 😜



  • Hi @peter,
    I have it set to 2018 hoping it would show last season. I thought 2019 would be empty because that season hasen’t started yet. But here is the module part from my config file (Don’t mind the //. This way I can add the module to the config without causing it to fail):

    // {
    // module: ‘MMM-Formule1’,
    // position: ‘top_right’,
    // header: ‘F1 uitslagen’,
    // config: {
    // calendar: true,
    // season: 2018
    // }
    // },

    O…M…G!!! 😫 😫 😫 😫 😫 😫 😫 😫
    I see were I did go wrong!
    It’s Formula with an A! Not Formule with an E!!!
    Feel so stupid right now! 😵 😵 😵 😵

    On the other hand… THANKS for helping! If I didn’t copy and paste my config file here I would have looked at my config a lot of times thinking what is wrong without realising that it was a typo! 😁 😁



  • What season do you have in config.js?
    I have “current” and it shows the final stands in the 2018 season.
    No entries to be seen in the calendar because the new season will start in march …
    Maybe you can show your config?

  • And it was a typo indeed! It’s working fine now! 👍🏻 👍🏻



  • I think if you change the season to “current” the score will automatically update to the latest results (a few hours after the race).

  • @peter I left the “season”-line out of the config this time and it display’s the current 2018 season. I was hoping it would display the new ranking already but I think it’s still to soon for the new season to show anything about it. I’ll just leave it as is in the moment and alter it (if needed) when the new season is starting.
