Did some preliminary css work on the module. This is pretty much how I envisioned it. I’m satisfied. Thanks again to everyone that advised me.

I’m very impressed with your progress.
I appreciate that. Frankly, I’m amazed that I’ve gotten any of my modules to work. I joined this forum 13 months ago without the slightest idea of what linux or a raspberry pi even was. I realized quickly enough that I wanted to learn how things worked and started reading and asking questions. With the help of some very nice people I was able to make my first module, MMM-Cocktails. At this point, I was totally hooked. It’s still magic to me and I enjoy every minute of the learning process.
Glad to hear you got it working!
Thanks ninja. Your suggestions pointed me in the right direction, but even then I was at a loss on how to proceed. @cowboysdude deserves all the credit, though. He took the time to explain things to me.
Is this your dev environment? Or do you really have an i7 780, GTX 660 and 16Gb running MM? At least it can run MMM-Globe!
This is my dev machine. It dual boots Windows and ubuntu. I found it on craigslist, although it came with 8GB of RAM. Luckily for me, it wouldn’t boot when I went to buy it so I stole it for $80 and had it up and running in minutes after getting it home.
MMM-Globe! Yes, very nice module. Stunning graphics. But I prefer MMM-EARTH with an animation speed of 0 and a rotate interval of 1000. Also challenging for a Pi but the laptop boards I use handle it nicely and I get the most recent images of Earth. I’ve seen hurricanes develop and an eclipse. Pretty spectacular stuff. :-)

He can’t it’s a secret HAHHAHAHAHHA
My code (if you can even call it that) is never a secret. It’s more like an embarrassing teenager moment. ;-)
However, I do enjoy learning and I do appreciate you taking the time to teach me. You’re a damn good dude! :-)
I would like to thank everyone that gave me suggestions and advice. I really do appreciate the support.
I ended up using a combination of 2 npm packages. pc-stats and sensors.js. My first time building a module from an npm package, and then adding a second to the same module confused me quite a bit. That, and my lack of any real coding experience, found me at a standstill.
Well, once again, @cowboysdude took pity on me. He took the time to teach me where I went wrong, and what I was missing, and what I didn’t need. Maybe I won’t retain everything that he taught me but I will certainly remember his kindness and generosity. His patience is astonishing. :-)
Now I just need some formatting if anyone cares to assist me with that. Anyway, here’s a quick shot. Ideally, I would like to move the Core temps to right, just under the video card temp
Is there a particular way to install a repository into the ~/MagicMirror/modules directory?
As @yawns suggested, click on “How to add modules” in my signature at the bottom of this post.
How do I add my photo to the image folder?
That’s “images” folder. Just as you would on a Mac or PC. Drag/Copy/Paste/etc your photo into the ~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-EasyBack/images folder
3.Do I need to do anything special for .gifs?
