Took a little tweaking but here is 7" monitor and Pi in a combo case/stand. Should work well.

RE: Weather.gov forecast status in Weather module
@sdetweil Just wanted to pass on that have two iterations of the default weather module running. One for “current” and one for forecast using weathergov as my data source. Appears I can do away with weatherEndpoint on both with no ill effects.
There is a NWS API Page that runs through an example. Follow example using the appropriate gps coordinates for your location. In my screen capture you see
/gridpoints/CAE/70,67/forecast/hourlywhich relates to my local NWS radar at CAE which is local airport. I do not think this will work for people trying to get finer resolution via someone’s weather station who is uploading their data to a 3rd party provider.
I have seen the CURRENT forecast drop out infrequently but it has always come back on its own.
RE: My Look Ahead board
Version 2. Tossed the YouTube in the iFrame, Replaced with National Weather Service radar page.
Got rid of the module that was past?? cloud/rain. Replaced with WeatherChart module.
Also, looks like CalendarLabs has posted 2021 calendar as it was populated with new dates this morning.

Format/Delete Sunset & Sunrise Time
Not sure if this is a
custom.cssquestion or a
In the default Clock module you have the option to show sun time and moon time. By default they are off but I have set to true.
I am scaling up the modules for big TV and had to set
.region.lefta lot wider than however it translates on to the big screen because the
showMoonTimeswere starting to text wrap although that might not be quite the term used. I would like to do away with the circled portion of the sunset and I assume sunrise time I have circled in the clock module.
I ran it down to this block in Developer Tools but not sure how to tackle.
I want to keep the sunrise and sunset times but don’t really care about the time UNTIL sunrise or sunset. I would probably get rid of the percent of full moon value too but imagine I just change verbiage similar to how to approach the sun question
On top of that it will allow me to recover some of the middle region I gave up when I widened
RE: fullscreen_below and fullscreen_above
@bkeyport Saw an example in Custom CSS Showcase with image background and was wondering if it was placed on fullscreen below but looked at that CSS again and saw how image was placed. That, and just wondering what they did. When using Developer Tools I see them quite frequently but never seen any discussion of their purpose.
RE: Main.css, Custom.css and Big Screen TV
@cowboysdude I understand the purpose of custom.css and in the end main.css which I copy to custom.css will be different than main.css.
When you run MM on a big 45+ inch TV , each module is really small so if you park module X at
top_leftand park module Y at
bottom_rightyou have two small modules that are same small size and would seem better to do them both with one block of css.
The other thing that I want to understand is if the top, bottom, left and right sections scale up on big monitor?
If I put a module in
top_leftis the right edge of the module hitting the right side of the left section.
My first pass at this was module by module in
custom.cssand it was a chore. I’m first to admit i’m a noob in extreme at this but after upscaling each module one by one I was wondering if there was an easier way. I subsequently blew up whole thing so opted to start over. I don’t mind that I killed module via that very css but on second pass I’d as soon avoid the module by module tweaking. As @sdetweil says, just piling in more modules not way to go.
Standard PC monitor it is not an issue. All the modules seem written with PC monitor in mind. In my use case I want MM to occupy one of HDMI ports on TV, with other HDMI port being cable TV. I can just toggle inputs on TV remote to flip between the two.
Main.css, Custom.css and Big Screen TV
@sdetweil You’ve commented on having large screen TV running MM and I’m attempting to do the same. This is second attempt at this and seeing how small modules are and how much void space is between modules I was wondering if I could copy main.css to custom.css to globally address all the modules similarly. It would end up different than main.css but instead of tackling each module separately, get them all at once. A prime example would be the
.dimmedsetting. I find that hard to read no matter which module I am looking at so change to
brightand same with fonts, big screen TV needs everything to be up-sized and tackling globally seems to be a good option. Wondering on your thoughts and issues you dealt with on large TV.
RE: Generic Config.js & Module Question
@sdetweil @BKeyport just trigggered a question on inheritance. On several occasions when I have Developer Tool up to look at something , I’ll see message text that is roughly “X is inherited from body” or from main. Been a while since I was really poking around in developer tool mode. Think above was in context of CSS. So in event you want to change X, how do you tackle without it having global impact?
