Installing on a Pi Zero
I recently purchased a pi0, and installed MagicMirror successfully. However when I go to install more modules, it starts to fail (ie. become very unstable). Other than just ‘upgrading’ to a Pi3/4, is there any reason why I couldn’t host the mirror on my website and just use the browser to display the data?
@sdetweil sorry, my terminology isn’t great, this is my first experience doing much coding at all. I got it displaying the default modules, but it struggled to display my google calendar, and wouldn’t show background images at all. So I was wondering if instead of hosting locally on the pi, I could host it on my other computer and just call the data from there. The pi has no issue running Dakboard with background images, calendars etc, so I’m trying to see if I could run the MM in a similar fashion, as I like MM way better.
@laurafox08 sure, u install once, and can run full, server only or client only
client only really is browser to server.
so u can do what u want easily
the default install config assumes everything locally…
so, just change the config.js to allow any system on your network to connect
and initially disable any security filtering
for pi0, my install script sets up chromium over server, as electron isn’t available pre built for armv6.
if u used my script see the run-start.sh script for the chromium command syntax
