Black screen for copy of hellowold module



  • Hello,
    I have tried to create a new module in MM, for that I have copied helloworld module from “modules/defauls/helloworld” to “modules/Titus”,

    I just renamed to ‘Titus’ as a module.

    Then I changed the config.js file for a new Titus module.

    I am getting black screen now for the Titus module, but just work fine for helloworld.
    Why ?, any dependencies ?
    Can any one please help me on this ?

    I’m very new to this (MMM)

    //Worked
    /*
    {
    module: 'helloworld',
    position: 'middle_center',
    header: 'helloworld module',
    config: {
    text: 'I'm helloworld module'
    } // closes config
    }, // closes module helloworld
    */
    
    //Not worked
    {
    module: 'Titus',
    position: 'middle_center',
    header: 'Titus module',
    config: {
    text: 'I'm Titus module'
    }
    },
    

    Regards,

    So you created a copy of the helloworld module and moved it to modules/Titus?
    Then you renamed helloworld.js to Titus.js?
    Did you modify Titus.js and changed this line
    javascript Module.register("helloworld",{
    to
    javascript Module.register("Titus",{
    to tell MagicMirror there is a new module called Titus?



  • Yes, I did like that only.

    Changed to like below.
    javascript Module.register(“Titus”,{

    Anything I want to do ?



  • I found the problem.
    Initially I named module as “Titus” and have javscript as “titus.js”.

    I renamed like below and it worked.
    “titus.js” to “Titus.js”

                {
                        module: 'Titus',
                        position: 'middle_center',
                        header: 'Titus module',
                        config: {
                                text: 'Glory to God, Jesus and Holyspirit, all the time'
                        }
                },
    

    Thank you.
