@I_Am_Anthony Off the top of my head, use the scheduling module and the background image module in conjunction. There’s no reason you can’t put the background module in twice and swap 'em out at a particular time.

RE: PM2 do not start at bootup on my RPI 2? Works fine on my RPI 3.
I know you have a solution and all, but PM2 should already be running on your Pi as part of the installation process.
Did you save your PM2 state before reboot? If you’re willing to experiment, remove the PM2 commands from your crontab and reboot your mirror. Once it’s back up, start the mirror with
pm2 start mm, wait for the interface to appear and then enter
Once PM2 has saved the state, reboot your mirror and MM2 should start after a few seconds.
RE: How do I go about making a decent sized mirror cheap?
@chaseb1357 The expensive parts are going to be the monitor and the mirror itself. If you’re willing to put in the time, there are a couple ways to save money.
- Acrylic mirrors are cheaper than glass mirrors and only are only slightly lesser quality. www.tapplastics.com is a decent source for one-way acrylic.
- One-way film is even cheaper than one-way acrylic. If you’re willing to go slow and try multiple times, you can put one-way film on a sheet of plain glass.
- The monitor is the other large expense. If you’re willing to stay with a landscape orientation, you can repurpose a used LCD television instead of a computer monitor. A cheap 32" TV is cheaper than a 32" monitor.
- Honestly, I’d skip the touchscreen aspect. I know you don’t want to hear it, but a touchscreen mirror is just asking for fingerprints & smudges.
RE: Modules stuck at "Loading" after update...
@rodofrn Other than a temporary outage of the web service? Hrm. Have you tried reinstalling those particular modules? I wonder if the new version of MM is somehow interfering with the authentication of the email and commute app.
You should be able to replicate the commute web call with a carefully crafted CURL command. Pass it your API key and such and see if you get an error. Make sure to do so from the Pi.
One of my mirrors had a similar issue after the update, but it sorted itself after I resolved some connectivity problems.
RE: Compliments not showing up when edited from default
You shouldn’t be modifying the
compliments.jsfile. Any new compliments should be placed in the appropriate section of the
config.jsfile. Or if you like, you can create a
compliments.jsonfile and load them. Check the module
READ.MEfile for exact syntax.
