I’ve converted my weather app on my magic mirror at home to MMM-Darksky a while ago, I find that to be a much better choice than the other weather apps out there.

RE: Scrolling rather than Carousel mode...
@mykle1 Ahh, I guess I’m one of the lucky ones. The one problem I had was an issue with RTSP-Stream locking up overnight. Fixed that by switching to ffmpeg from omxplayer.
Both boxes are currently running MMM-Carousel in positional mode.
The smaller screen one (uses the “pi touch screen” to the screen port) has one position alternating the two weather modules, world-clock with seconds running, calendar, and RTSP-Stream running ffmpeg mode nearly flawlessly (once in a while, it’ll slow the video).
The one I want the scrolling for uses MMM-Carousel now to switch out screens for MMM-NFL and MMM-MyScoreboard (2-3 copies so that the scoreboard don’t flow off the screen in my temporary install) - it also runs the default news app, calendar, MMM-Darksky, and the default clock.
Neither have any problems with existing animations, smooth as silk except for the previously mentioned ffmpeg issue.
Scrolling rather than Carousel mode...
basically, I’d like to keep modules in Top_center in a X*Y area, and then scroll the area upwards so to catch the remaining information from the modules.
Currently, I have 4 copies of the same module (MMM-MyScoreboard) running, each configured to show one of the 4 sports I use that module for, and a copy of MMM-NFL in the same block, rotating between panes using MMM-Carousel’s positional feature.
The problem with this, is that MyScoreboard hides sports that is off season or no games scheduled, so currently, it’ll show a big blank area for those copies. If I could dynamically scroll the position to the end MyScoreboard, then fade out and reset to top, it would be much better, IMO.
Anyone want to take this on for me? Thanks!
Love the look and the consistent feel of the module. That’s something the single sport apps lack, even if they’re from the same author… I’ve got it working with everything but american football due to the single day aspect. American football is the odd case of multiple days being considered the same day for schedule purposes. Would be nice to have it consider the NFL/college football special case of Week X games, and have week X all display as one “day” (Thursday through Monday games each week)
