@sdetweil That wa the ticket. Ran npm install on that module, said it installed 2 components which I took as a positive sign. Un-commented the module in config.js and running well.

Electron vs Magic Mirror Puzzle
So I did a direct copy paste of MMM-NewsFeedTicker from a MM where it works flawlessly over to big screen MM where it doesn’t work flawlessly.
If I comment out the NewsFeedTicker in config.js everything is good. Put back in service and it just pops up a black screen that I assume is some alternative terminal, Electron.
The only difference is that the MM that works is running older version of MM as I have not updated it.
I had configuration error yesterday and was getting the broken configuration screen and decided to do the config:check line that is displayed and after it ran with no issues but did throw up big message block that said “MAJOR UPDATE AVAILABLE” in big bold text and was wondering about running that update and where it goes.
RE: Weather Module Current Forecast
@ankonaskiff17 FWIW, the weathergov “forecast/current” loaded at some point… I posted message about last evening about hitting wall. Quit for the day and powered down monitor which I just turned on and it was up and running. I’ve rebooted and it is in that “Loading…” mode similar to what was resolved on the forecast module. I started stopwatch to see how long it takes to load. Surprised me that’s for sure. I was sitting there looking at it for a couple of minutes before it sank in to my brain.
Weather Module Current Forecast
I’ve hit a wall on getting the hourly forecast to work.
It seems straightforward, instead of /forecast I use forecast/hourly but it just wont go.
I went to weather.gov site and I can find stuff about gridpoints and following their instructions get a result.
The other part and where I am way over my head is I ran across some lines that say something to effect that api.weather.gov/points/forecast/hourly are deprecated where api.weather.gov/points/forecast is not.
RE: tableClass sizing question in weather module
@sdetweil That 7" is history. On my fathers coffee table now.
The one I’m working on now is 42" monitor. It will be input on bedroom TV . I’ll just edit HDMI input label as MM so I can toggle inputs on TV remote so I can get quick summary of weather, news, headlines, stock market. Not much on watching TV in bed but had spare monitor & seemed like a good application.
I have freestanding one in living room and and I look at it many times during course of the day.
