CANNOT ADD MODULES



  • For the mother fucking life of me, I have been working on this for 8 hours now trying to upload different modules. Every time I do, it either doesn’t show up on the screen or says I need to a config, which I already have.

    Try finding errors with

    npm run config:check
    

    to find errors in the config.

    You can also use online tools like jslint.com (past your code there)

    You need to remove commas in line 19 and 54
    and need to add one in line 59.

    …and maybe even more.


  • Module Developer

    and your indentation is messed up making it more difficult to find errors.
    You may have too much curled brackets.

    I prefer jshint.com
    In this case you missed a single comma in line userlon, so it should be:

    		userlat: "47.302604", //MUST HAVE BOTH
    	        userlon: "-122.33621",  //MUST HAVE BOTH
    		zip: "98023"

    This really is way better! Great! Doesn’t complain about tabs for indentation which is annoying with the other tool.



  • Thank you guys! I will try using those sites. Didn’t know they existed. Oh man. Would that be a help. Another question, for d ample, the compliments and weather module, when I change it in the config, do I have to change it in the module folder as well? Adding more compliments and such?


  • Module Developer

    @anhanyoung Every module is designed in a way that you don’t have to mess with the module files (MMM-*.js, node_helper.js) themselves.
    Otherwise, if you’re not common with git, you will run into problems as soon as you want/need to update the module.
    So always try to use config/config.js, css/customs.css or external files for tpurposes like these. In most caeses it’s described in the Readme of the config or here in the forum.

    No, you only need to change it in the config.js, or in the external json. The module file contains default values that will be overwritten by the values in the config.js or external files (e.g. for compliments)
