MMM-CalendarEXT: Not Showing Latest Private Google Calendar Feed
I’ve been searching for a way to resolve my experience, and haven’t found anything yet. The MMM-CalendarEXT instance on my magicmirror is not displaying updated events from my google calendar.
When I download and review the ics data, I’m seeing what is matching on the google calendar, however it is not what is showing when the magicmirror is running. At first I thought this was a caching issue, but I’ve reset the private calendar link in google - presuming that it would pull a new file - and it still shows old (original prior to the event update) information.
I’m probably missing something, so wanted to reach out and ask the community.
Thanks in advance…
@cccp402 the calendar must be public, as mm is not logged on as you.
Your desktop browser IS logged on as you
So, I can’t use the Secret address from google? Sorry if I wasn’t clear, that is the address I was using to get the ical file to confirm the difference between events.
Would rather not make this particular calendar public.
if someone puts out a code with which you can sign up as a google user, that would be great.
For MMM-CalendarExt(not MMM-CalendarExt2), check
redrawIntervalof system parts and
intervalof calendar parts in configuration.
@sean Great, I’ve adjusted those values, and will see if that addresses what I’m experiencing.
Is there a cache of the previously accessed ics file somewhere in the system? I am still seeing the old version of the calendar, prior to the event modifications.
There is no cache.
Can you share the .ics URL to examine details? My email is
@Sean Hi, something is definitely wrong with the default calendar module. It worked for me when I installed a few weeks ago but recently I did a fresh install and noticed the calendar displays "No upcoming events’ no matter ics file or url I use. Public URLS and my own ICS work using other methods and definitely have data populated but the mirror/module shows "No upcoming events’ no matter what. Actually tomorrow is presidents day and still nothing. Could you please check into this for us? Thanks.
@anthony6608 the default holiday Cal only had 2017 & 2018 holiday events.
There is a new one for 2019. Just posted earlier today in one topic
Also, open the dev console
npm start dev
And look for errors in the console tab
Are you talking about my module (MMM-CalendarExt) or default calendar module? I’m slightly confused.
