Show two weather and forecast modules on the same screen



  • Hi,

    As I want to see two different locations, I tried to run the currentWeather and weatherForecast modules twice in the config.js, but I don’t get the second one. I guess I’m not doing it right.

    Can anyone give me advice on how to do this?

    Regards



  • @frog I just whipped one up and it wasn’t a problem. A couple things to check:

    • Make sure that you’re configuring the entire module twice.
    • Make sure that you put each instance of the module in a different location (top_left, bottom_left, etc.)

      Here’s an example with the calendar module:
    {
          module: 'calendar',
          header: 'US Holidays',
          fetchInterval: 3600000,
          position: 'top_left',
          config: {
                fade: false,
                calendars: [ {
                      symbol: 'calendar-check-o ',
                      url: 'webcal://www.calendarlabs.com/templates/ical/US-Holidays.ics',
                }, ],
           }
    },
          module: 'calendar',
          header: 'Movie Releases',
          fetchInterval: 3600000,
          position: 'bottom_left',
          config: {
                fade: false,
                calendars: [ {
                      symbol: 'imdb',
                      url: 'https://www.google.com/calendar/ical/pfutdblf1gi8jmfsvroh76f6jg%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics'
                }, ],
           }
    },
    


  • I tried just duplicating the module in config.js, but it didn’t work. Maybe it’s different for the weather modules. I’ll try again.



  • @frog Don’t forget to put each copy of the module in a different location!



  • @bhepler My bad, just re-entered the info in config.js and it works! thanks.



  • What’s the movie module?



  • @wjdw87 it’s not a module, it’s a calendar. Address is in the config above



  • Much obliged, the wife sends a e-kiss (she is the movie hound).

    Thanks!



  • I see a rectangle character in front of the movie title, what can be? Thank you.
