I am stuck need help



  • @yawns thank you for doing that, I’m very new to this, what else do i need to do to the above config file you posted



  • Give this a try. A handy tool
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm run config:check
    hope its sorted



  • Just wanted to say thanks again for all of the help. I have spent the last couple of days trying to figure this out to no avail. I have decided to scrap the project for now until I can figure out what I am doing because I clearly do not have a clue.



  • @dcarls91
    I understand that in the beginning the amount information can be overwhelming, but how are you going to find out what you are doing when you scrape your project?
    Especially when you are so close in getting the ‘Mirror’ started; just a few characters are missing in the config file.
    The community here is very active and very helpful and can step down a nodge when it is getting too technical.
    Of course it is expected that you have a certain level of knowledge or that you are willing to obtain that level.

    Besides spending several hours, did you spend any money on equipment, etc?

    If you decide to give it a last effort, then it would help to tell us on what platform your Mirror is running (Raspberry, PC, Ubuntu, etc) and it would help to report back with a bit more details (other than I tried and it did not work).
    And if someone tells you to perform action XYZ and you have no idea what the heck XYZ is or how to execute, then don’t be afraid to say so.

    The suggestions given, like try it module by module and the config check are very useful (I guess everyone was in this position, I know I was) and will solve your issues.

    If you decide to move away from Magic Mirror, then I respect that, but perhaps you will reconsider.

    Disclaimer: I do not have any shares in the project and am by no means an expert. Just reaching out. 🙂

    Sorry, I did not see your reply. Copy the config I posted, save it as config.js and add your API keys and links to calendars again. Or, to clearly see the changes I made, use this:

    Left is your config, right is my fixed config.



  • @yawns might also want to consider removing lat/long too



  • @dcarls91 Don’t give up.

    Keep at it, you’re so close to having a working MM - a little self study and work and it’s done.



  • Thank you all for your help, after a long day yesterday i was able to get it up and running.
