3rd party Modules won't show up - (expect standard ones)

  • Hi there,
    Build my mirror time ago, rebooted it lately, all standard modules are working fine but i can’t add any 3rd part modules…for instance MMM-globe from @LukeCodewalker … they just won’t show up, don’t know why 😞 config file is ok (i assume) as the standard modules are showing up.
    css custom file was modified to only stretch the content to the edges of the screen as below:

    body {
    margin: 0px;
    height: 100%;
    width: 100%;


    Upgraded to v.2.6
    Running on Jessie

    Please let me know if any additional info is needed 🙂

    Thx in advance for your time if anybody can help me.

  • Hi,

    for all modules nomaly you can find a installation guide like this one at MMM-globe
    github page:


    Navigate into your MagicMirror’s modules folder and execute //git clone

    The entry in config.js can include the following options

    Follow the instructions.

  • @lolobyte Thank you very much for your prompt feedback help. The problem is not MMM-globe module itself 😉 (was just an example) but a general like problem with all 3rd part modules so far.

  • start the mirror in dev mode

    npm start dev

    and select the console tab, look for errors…

  • @sdetweil thx for the tip but honestly i don’t know how to analyze the console output… 😞 here are 2 pics that i took just now (sorry for bad quality) ! 0_1547320777816_IMG_7536.JPG

  • I could make it work by uninstal the module and git clone it again… no idea why it was not working but the answer should be in the pics i assume 🙂

    Nevertheless, i have red few issues regarding how to display 2 calendars.
    I just can’t figure it out how to display 2 of them… my config file :

    If someone can share his/her config file for this, pls, it would be great!

  • @bibi looks like MMM-Globe is having a problem… after you did the git clone, did you change to the MMM-Globe folder and do,

    npm install
