@strawberry-3.141 thank you for the quick reply. Just to confirm: where am I entering @types/node. Sorry for being a noob at this. Thanks for your help!
EDIT: I got the node/type to work by updating using sudo npm install npm@latest -g
Now when I run sudo npm install in the magic mirror folder I get an error code LIFECYCLE. errno 1. “firstname.lastname@example.org” postinstall ‘node install.js’.
‘failed at the email@example.com postinstall script’.
EDIT2: used sudo npm install -g electron --unsafe-perm=true.
This seemed to work. I will monitor performance and let you all know.
Been monitoring it for an hour or so now. CPU temp has not gone over 50. While before it was around a constant 60 - 65.
Compliments and Newsfeed animations are SUPER SMOOTH.
I can confirm that using MM 2.1.0 with Electron 1.4.15 has insanely improved performance! Thanks to everyone in this thread and to @Mykle1 for pointing this thread out for me.
I just have ONE final question guys. I used my custom.css file from my newer build and all was fine after I removed the ‘everyday’ segment of the code from the compliments module. HOWEVER…I notice in the background (If i tab to terminal) This message pops up:
“Fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git”
However, it does not seem to affect the mirror? Or not in any way I can see? Is there any way I can pinpoint how this message is being generated? Like I said, it does not appear to affect any of my modules.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
