Magic Mirror how to

2015-10-13T12:19:28+00:00

I have been seeing a bunch of these and decided to build one but couldn't find good instructions on exactly what to do, a lot of it was implied knowledge and not very good for beginners. I am going to make this a simple as possible so I will include a prebuilt UI that is commonly mentioned. Things you will need: Raspberry pi (I used an A+ for mine so pretty much anything will work) SD card with linux (I used raspbian jessie) LCD with HDMI input (I used an old monitor with an HDMI to VGA adapter) wifi adapter powered USB hub (maybe, I used ssh for everything so I only needed it to get the wifi configured) carpentry skills (I won't get into this because it will be different for each mirror) Installing and configuring: If you want to install everything up front you can run: sudo apt-get install php5 midori unclutter that's all the apt repository based stuff that this requires. I am going to bypass burning the image to the SD card, just google it. Once you have your pi up and running jessie will boot to the GUI. Click the menu and look for raspberry config in the preferences section. Expand the file system and set the localization settings so that the time is correct. Do not change the boot behaviour, we want it to auto login to the GUI. Reboot to apply the FS change and make sure you connect to your wifi network, it will auto connect every time after this so you only have to do it once. you need to install a few things to make the UI work. Open the terminal and run update and upgrade to get the most recent updates to your system. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade We are going to install our webserver and php. If you just install php5 then it will also install apache2 and everything they need to run. sudo apt-get install php5 Now we need to get the magic mirror UI, which is a php website. The originator maintains a git repo that has what you want. Go to apache's directory and clone the git repo (it's not that scary). cd /var/www/html sudo git clone https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror Git has created a folder called MagicMirror and copied all of the files from the repository into it, Git is awesome like that. I didn't change any permissions here so any changes you make will need to use sudo or you can change the permissions on the folders and files. At this point your magic mirror is working! but it isn't in english and it doesn't show up when you boot the pi. You can use a browser on any computer on your network to take a look. Use ifconfig to get the IP address of your pi and go to http:///MagicMirror/ to see it. config settings: sudo nano /var/www/html/MagicMirror/config Next up we have to modify the rest of config. This is where you will need to do a little bit of legwork, you need 3 things: Language (english is 'en') an open weather map API key an RSS feed (if you want it to display news) your private calendar link from gcal or other calendar web app The calendar can read any iCal calendar that is shared on the web. If you use google calendar you can get this by clicking the little down arrow to the right of your calendar name and selecting 'calendar settings'. Copy the private iCal address and use nano to edit the js file, if you use the public calendar link it will just show 'Busy' for every event and we don't want that. If you just want it to show holidays then here is a list of holiday calendars that you can link it to or import into your google calendar. The weather api is free. go the the API signup page and sign up! Once you do that you can get your API key. cd /var/www/html/MagicMirror/js I'm using the full path so we don't get lost, if you are familiar with getting around in the terminal just ignore it. sudo nano config Here is what you will need to change, I am just isolating the lines, it is not a big file so they won't be hard to find. change var lang = 'nl'; to var lang = 'en'; or your language of choice. change 'APPID':'YOUR_FREE_OPENWEATHER_API_KEY' Replace YOUR_FREE_[...]






[Reposting]How to set up an "Adventurer's Log" that retains more than 10 entries

2015-12-06T17:27:01+00:00

In the sidebar, click Create your own subreddit Name it whatever you like (I suggest using your reddit username). Set type to Restricted (or Private). Uncheck the option to allow inclusion in /r/all. If you want to have your chathead as thumbnail (instructions later in this post), set Show Thumbnail Images to on. Set the other options however you like. Click Create. In a new tab, go to the Adventurer's Log page. Type in your RS display name and hit Search. Go to the Activity tab, and click the RSS feed icon on the right In a new tab, go to If This Then That. Create an account if you don't have one already. Activate this IFTTT recipe. Paste in the URL of your Adventurer's Log feed from Step 4, and write in the name of your subreddit from Step 2. You will be prompted to connect IFTTT to your reddit account, if you've never done so before. EDIT The link no longer works, make your own recipe using these details Optional: If you set your subreddit to Restricted instead of Private, you may wish to block all comments in your subreddit. If so, set up AutoModerator. Then, paste this into the AutoModerator config page: --- type: comment action: remove message: Your comment was automatically removed. Comments are blocked in /r/{{subreddit}}. And then send AutoModerator the update message. Make sure that AutoModerator has at least "wiki" and "posts" permissions. Optional: If you set your subreddit to Restricted instead of Private, you may want to add this CSS to hide the vote buttons: /*Hide vote arrows*/ .arrow, .midcol .score {display:none!important;} /*Widen numbering*/ .rank {margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px;} What this will do: IFTTT will use your reddit account to make a post in your personal subreddit whenever a new entry appears on your adventurer's log. Example: http://puu.sh/bQ8GG.png Note that if you change your RS display name, you will need to update the RSS feed URL in your IFTTT recipe. Edit: Here's how to make the reddit post thumbnail be your chat-head: From your adventurer's log, right-click your chat-head and Save Image. Open the image in in an image editor. MS Paint works fine. Select All, then click Resize. Resize the image from 100x100 px to 50x50. In your subreddit, click Edit Stylesheet. Use the tools at the bottom to upload the file from step 2. Name it avatar. You should see something like this when you're done. Paste this into your stylesheet: /*Modify thumbnail width*/ .thumbnail {width: 50px} /*Avatar linkflair*/ .linkflair-avatar .thumbnail img {display:none;} .linkflair-avatar .thumbnail {background: url(%%avatar%%) no-repeat;} Click Save. Paste this into your AutoModerator config page (/wiki/config/automoderator), replacing username with your reddit name. (Note: make sure that the indenting stays the same. The --- should be the only thing on its line, and the subsequent lines should start with 4 spaces each. Do not use the Tab character) Edit: for compatibility with New AutoModerator after its integration into reddit --- type: submission author: [username] set_flair: ["","avatar"] Click Edit Flair in the sidebar. Set link flair position to anything other than "none" If you need to retroactively add the chathead to any posts, click Edit Flair in the sidebar. Under Link Flair Templates, add "avatar" as a CSS class and Save it. Then go to your post(s) and apply the linkflair. If the thumbnail isn't displaying, enable thumbnails in Subreddit settings. If you wish to track multiple RS accounts: Use this recipe instead. You'll need one copy of that recipe for each account tracked. For chat head thumbnails, upload a different 50x50 thumbnail chat head for each account tracked. When uploading, name them by RS display name In step 4 of the chat head instructions, repeat the /*Avatar linkflair*/ section of CSS once for each account being tracked, replacing all instances of avatar with the RS display name. For example: .linkflair-zezima .th[...]



A Don't Starve inspired Rainmeter skin to customise your desktop.

2017-11-20T13:26:37+00:00

Hey all, Tinkering around in Rainmeter and I decided to make a Don't Starve themed desktop skin, it turned out pretty well.

Used a screenshot of the game to acquire the templates for the side and bottom bars and edited them somewhat so that they fit fully on the screen, created templates for each blank slot which was then converted into buttons using simple picture editing software (paint.net ftw!) and easy to use code of rainmeter. I only created few buttons as I don't use much other software, so feel free to add new buttons as you see fit.

The clock was slightly harder, using the rotator meter, I centred the hands and set the different angles so that they were in the correct positions, if you wish to use the clock you will most likely have to tinker with it before it works.

The health, hunger and sanity bars were converted into simple system monitoring, with my C: and D: monitored for how much space they have left over and my CPU usage being monitored. Buttons included to shut down, log off or hibernate your pc.

Hope y'all check this out and enjoy it!

Had to re-setup mine under a different account, Figured I'd post this for everyone else Everything below this line is word for word from /u/captainmeta4's original post here In the sidebar, click Create your own subreddit Name it whatever you like (I suggest using your reddit username).

[TUTORIAL] How to get reddit news feeds on your kindle

2011-12-31T20:33:34+00:00

A few days ago I asked a question in this subreddit, if one could have several reddit feeds sent to your kindle, like a newspaper. Link Download and install calibre. After installing you'll be asked for your kindle email address, to find this out, go to amazon in the top right "your account" then on the right "Manage Your Kindle" then on the left of the next screen click "Personal Document Settings" under "Your Kindle Account" your kindle's email will be under "Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings" ADDING THE FEEDS When you have installed calibre, launch it and in the top right corner, click the arrow next to "Fetch news" Click "Add a custom news source" On the right, you'll see a box and below that "Add feed to recipe" and below that two text boxes, one that says "Feed title" and another that says "Feed URL" In feed title simply type the name you want your kindle to display for the section. E.g. /r/news, News In feed URL, use the following URL http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?RedditRedux=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2Fr%2fSUBREDDITHERE%2F.rss&_id=ebd66161e6d27407fa14c27f1f6e60b1&_render=rss Replace SUBREDDITHERE with the name of the subreddit, e.g. for /r/worldnews it would be worldnews or the full URL would be: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?RedditRedux=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2Fr%2fworldnews%2F.rss&_id=ebd66161e6d27407fa14c27f1f6e60b1&_render=rss Paste this URL in the "Feed URL" section. The reason you need to use this long URL is because otherwise, the feeds would be sent to your kindle with the proper title, but the contents would be that of a random comment in the thread, the yahoo pipe fetches the contents of the linked article and uses that instead. Click "Add feed". Back to the top now, set "Recipe title" to reddit Set "Oldest article" to 1 days And leave "Max. number of articles per feed" or turn it down to say, 10, so you only get the top ten from each reddit. When you are finished, click "Switch to Advanced mode" at the top. Paste the line below into it like this. masthead_url = 'http://i.imgur.com/389h7.png' After that simply click "Add/Update recipe" on the left. Exit this window. SETTING THE FEEDS TO AUTOMATICALLY UPDATE Go back up to "Fetch news" click the triangle next to it. Expand the option "Custom" on the left. Click "reddit". Check off "Schedule for download" then "Days of the week" and the days of the week you wish to receive the feeds. Set "Download after" to whenever you wish for the feeds to be downloaded and sent. At the bottom set "Delete downloaded news older than" to "1 days" Click "Download now" at the bottom of this window. Exit this window. You have now set up calibre and as long as it's running it will send feeds to you from your favourite subreddits everyday. Some examples of feeds you can use: http://pastebin.com/Jui87RHG Special thanks to: SFLegend who helped me set it up as well as provided the code to change the mast head. submitted by /u/SevFTW to r/kindle [link] [comments][...]






Rainmeter skin based on our favourite game: RimWorld

2017-11-17T05:10:20+00:00

Hey all,

Been obsessed with RimWorld recently and I decided to combine my two loves together, I think its pretty cool

There are some nifty features I was experimenting with (such as displaying hard drive usage) but all in all I think it's a not too bad replica of the game. All buttons perform some function and, with slight editing of the code, are able to be changed to your will.

Feedback welcome and encouraged, I'm always looking to improve my skills!

Rainmeter thread because bored. For those of you who don't know rainmeter is a program that displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop. I am currently using this rainmeter skin but have been meaning to change it, maybe something related to pones but I've been too lazy to. So, those of you who are using rainmeter, show or link me to what skins you got.

Pulse Reader looks amazing on the NC screen.

2011-03-08T13:11:47+00:00

Just an FYI for those looking for apps that look great on the NC. Check out Pulse Reader. It's a newsreader that displays your feeds in a nice tiled graphical layout. It's perfect for viewing your RSS feeds on a tablet and it has one way integration with google reader (ie.. you can pull your feeds from GR, though I don't think it updates back what you've read).

Twitch.TV Past Broadcasts RSS Feed

2013-04-17T14:39:37+00:00

In case anyone wants to use it, I recently made a web app that polls Justin.tv's REST API and generates an RSS feed that should display everything you see on your Past Broadcasts page. To use it, point your RSS reader at the URL:

http://twitchtv-hp.apphb.com/Default.aspx?channel=YOUR_CHANNEL_NAME

For a slightly shorter URL you can leave out the Default.aspx, like this:

http://twitchtv-hp.apphb.com/?channel=YOUR_CHANNEL_NAME

For example, my Past Broadcasts are listed at http://twitchtv-hp.apphb.com/Default.aspx?channel=HP__. Note that whatever capitalization you use for the channel parameter is used wherever your channel name is displayed in the feed as well.

Logitech Keyboards With Screens + Warframe Alerts

2013-11-03T22:17:57+00:00

There is a relatively easy way to set these up. I don't know how often the data actually gets pulled, but it seems to be working pretty well.

  • Copy the link for the Facebook RSS feed for the Warframe Alert wall as your link.
  • Open your Logitech Gaming Software
  • Click the Customize LCD display button at the bottom of the application (two icons over from the house).
  • Tick the Logitech LCD RSS Reader box in the Applets and select Configure from the little pop-down arrow (or right click). If this doesn't pop up, switch to another "tab" of the Logitech software and back. That usually fixes the drop-down.
  • Delete whatever crappy feed they have there by default and add a new one, pasting the link given.

If other people find a better RSS reader for this (I've seen a couple, but haven't tested them yet), please let me know. It's very bare bones and doesn't let you configure much, but it does work.

Calling student programmers, lets bring an app to your school!

2017-07-03T14:19:17+00:00

I'm Praveen Sakthivel, a recent high school graduate from New Jersey. One year ago I set out to make an app for my school district. I ended up releasing the app that fall on IOS and android. It was a success but also helped learn a lot about the world of computer science and led me to pursue it as my major. In retrospect it was a great way for me to learn programming and use my knowledge to better my community within a short time span. I think it can do the same for you. I've made the source code for both version available on github. The live versions can be found here and here. My goal is that you can use it as a stepping stone to build something custom for your local school district and learn mobile programming along the way. As a short guide, I'll explain the main features so you can decide what you may or may not to use in your version. News: This section displays all news events for selected school. It makes use of an RSS Feed found on the schools website. If your school doesn't have an RSS Feed, you may want to look into web scraping. Calendar: Very similar to the news section except it draws its information from the portion of a schools website. If your school includes the date of the event in a standard way, you may want to look at it parsing that date and organizing events by their respective dates. Teacher Websites: This section is specific to service used by some schools called OnCourse Teacher Websites. OnCourse teacher websites are a service that allows teachers to create their own website for their classroom needs. Its a great resource but does not carry well to mobile at all. This section fixes that issue and even allows you to save teacher you frequent. To modify this section you'll need to find out the codes OnCourse uses for your school district. The code is the 5 digit number found at the end of https://app.oncoursesystems.com/school/menu/ link for your school. School Handbook Handbooks can useful at times but not to the extent you'll always have them on you. This displays a pdf so you will always have it on you. Link to the PDF online or save it within app when customizing this section. Student ID: Self Explanatory. School Id's are rarely used for anything other than identification. So instead of carrying it around, this section takes a picture and saves it to your phone within the app. You can have it ready with a few clicks instead of searching around your photo gallery. If your school uses the barcode on your ID you may want to inquire about using NFC to transmit that information. Homework Planner: A digital version of the agenda most schools pass out. Write whatever you want on a selected date and It'll be saved right to your phone. On the IOS version you can swipe to create a reminder for what you've written that will remind you in one day. You can customize this interval or have the user choose for themselves. Schools: I wouldn't design this just for one school, but for an entire district to save time. Most of the time district will use a number code for each school when differentiating the data sources for the webpage. You can concatenate this code into the rest of the url for easy abstraction for multiple schools. In my case I used the codes used by OnCourse Systems. That marks the end of the current features. But add what you think your schools need most. This is a template for you to start from. If you go through and publish the app, I ask that you do two things. Credit me in some way. Nothing big, just a little disclaimer at the end of your app description perhaps. No ads or price. These apps are supposed to be easily accessible to the community. M[...]



My automatic setup for getting new video releases onto my Apple TV without lifting my finger.

2013-01-30T10:57:54+00:00

If you don't own an Apple TV, there are definitely better ways to get this to work, such as getting a NAS: http://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/17k0n2/my_automatic_setup_for_getting_new_video_releases/c867qiy If you've already bought an Apple TV, or for some reason must use iTunes to get videos across your devices, this post might be worth looking at. Of course, this method shouldn't be used to download copyrighted material and such. A few notes: Requires OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard or later (for step 4) If you're on Windows, you can replace step 2 and 3 with uTorrent. If you don't have an rss feed with linked torrents, you obviously have to find some other way to get videos onto your computer. Links are at the bottom. Suggestions for improvements are welcome. The setup Torrent RSS->Torrent client->Video Conversion->iTunes library->Apple TV. Step 1 Find an RSS feed which links to torrent files. Can't really help you here. Step 2 Install Netnewswire on your mac. Under Preferences->Downloading->Feeds, set 'refresh all subscriptions' to every 30 minutes or longer. Under Preferences->Downloading->Enclosures, tick the box for 'Other enclosures'. Under Preferences->Downloading->Downloads folder, pick a download location for the torrent files. Take note of the folder location. Also note that Netnewswire will add '/NetNewsWire Enclosures' to the folder location, so add that at the end of your note. Subscribe to the RSS feed. Step 3 Install Transmission on your mac. Under Preferences->Transfers->Adding, do the following: Set default download location. Take note of the location. Set a different location for incomplete files. Tick 'Start transfers when added'. Tick 'Trash original torrent files'. If you tick 'Display a window when opening a torrent file', make sure to also tick 'Only when adding manually'. Tick 'Auto add' and set the location of your NetNewsWire downloads. (Don't forget the '/NetNewsWire Enclosures' subfolder. If you haven't yet downloaded any torrent files, this folder might not exist yet. You can either create it or just type the Auto add folder location in manually.) Advanced tip: Under Preferences->Groups you can assign groups to the torrents added through your rss feed so that the rest of the torrents stay out of this automization setup. Step 4 Install iVI on your mac. Under Preferences->Devices, check everything that applies to you (just Apple TV (your version) preferably, see "Notes on passthru" (last part of this step)). Under Preferences->Conversion, make sure Pass Thru Conversion is enabled. Under Preferences->Converted File, set iTunes as the destination for all categories. Under Preferences->Video Sources, choose If the file is from Video Sources then -> Put the file in the Trash. Add the Transmission download location as a source. Check Subdirectories. Under Preferences->Automation, check everything. Notes on Pass Thru I'm not an audio/video tech wiz, so this will be pretty basic. You want Pass Thru enabled, since it means a simpler video conversion (takes a few minutes instead of hours of intense work load on my four year old macbook pro). For this to work, only convert to HD, not HD/SD (this setting will show in iVI when new videos is added). This setting depends on your device selection (that's why I suggested only Apple TV). Step 5 Set up Home Sharing on iTunes and your Apple TV. Step 6 (optional) Make an automation for emptying the trash. This probably needs to be using the Secure empty trash[...]

I received some great feedback when I posted my searchable Pop! Vault here a week ago. In that post I promised I would add a newsletter feature. I have been working on it all week, and I think it's ready to have you all sign up. It's a bit rough, and I hope it will display properly in all of your mail clients (please let me know if it does). It's should automatically send out emails around 7 am CET if new Pops! were vaulted the day before. Please follow this link for the sign up page

The mailing list works off an RSS feed, which you can find here. This will be updated twice a day.

If I get time in the next week or so, I'll look at getting the script I'm using to automatically post to Twitter when there are new Pops vaulted.

I've taken some advice fro the last post & curated some of the entries (modified them, added extra fields when they're missing). I'm going to re-write a bit of the backend to allow some of the Pops to have more than one collection or series as well, given that at leat one Pop (Howard the Duck) seems to be categorised in a strange way by Funko that would make searching for him/browsing for him a bit difficult.

If there are any other features or ways of looking at the Vault that you'd be interested in, please let me know. (Again, the design is a bit rudimentary at the moment, and is more functional than good. I'll be looking at an overhaul in the next month or two, once I've got things set up on my testing server and have a better understanding of how Django works.)

Finally, this week saw the following items vaulted (on Monday):

  • Batman VS Superman: Nightmare Batman
  • The Fifth Element: Korben Dallas
  • Pocket Pop: My Little Pony 3 Pack Tin*

* I might take this out, as with the Pop! Pin for the Black Panther and keep the focus on the Pops.

Any Rainmeter fans here? Custom made Rome II: Total War skin that's fully customisable.

2017-05-08T09:05:32+00:00

Hey all,

Recently I've been practising my Rainmeter skills and decided to make a Rome II skin as practise, I think its pretty cool

There are some nifty features I was experimenting with (such as the dynamic minimap images) but all in all I think it's a not too bad replica of the game.

Feedback welcome and encouraged, I'm always looking to improve my skills!


What is rainmeter?

Rainmeter displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and control your media player - all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking. Rainmeter is at once an application and a toolkit. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity.

Anybody got some good "protips" for XBMC

2014-11-16T13:30:50+00:00

I've got a pretty nice setup going but I'd love to know what you're doing that is special on your install. When you brag about your setup to somebody, what is your favorite part? Do you know a plugin that I should be using? My setup is below:


Hardware / Install

  • Headless linux server with always on VPN and UTorrent
  • Web UI with RSS feeds for TV shows
  • 3 FireTVs, rooted and running XBMC
  • MySql Library on the server shared through the house.

Plugins

  • Services
  • XBMC Check Previous Episode: Tells you if you've watched the episode before the one you're about to watch. Also tells you if the previous episode is missing from the library. Really handy if your RSS feed misses an episode.
  • Programs
  • TV Show - Next Aired: I'm really cord cut and I have no idea when these shows air. This scans your library for shows, then displays a weekly view. In the view you see the next air date, episode name/number, and a each show links back into the library so you can jump right to it.
  • Screensaver - Android Power Options: A must have for (rooted) fireTVs. Lets the system shut down on idle.

Tutorial: How to create a automatic Twitter account for your subreddit.

2010-11-26T00:17:59+00:00

This tutorial will allow you to create a twitter account for your subreddit that automatically tweets new submissions. It will also show you how to place a twitter logo in your sidebar. For an example of this in action, see twitter.com/BritishTVreddit and /r/BritishTV. For more technically-minded redditors who are comfortable running a python script, Ketralnis has written this bot which powers @reddit Step One: Create your twitter account. If you need instructions for this I'd give up now. Stay logged into this new account during the following steps. Step Two: Locate your reddit RSS feed. Almost every reddit page can be turned into an RSS feed simply by adding the suffix .rss. Using this subreddit as an example it would be: http://reddit.com/r/modhelp.rss You can either use your main page, or the New page for the feed: http://reddit.com/r/subreddit.rss or http://reddit.com/r/subreddit/new.rss Private pages and subreddits are more tricky, but not impossible. Ask me if you need assistance with this. Step Three: Create a TwitterFeed account. Go to http://twitterfeed.com and open an account. This site uses OpenID, which means you can sign in via Google or other major website accounts. Twitterfeed does not see your personal login info. Click Create new feed, enter your RSS feed and name it. Click Advanced settings and use these settings: * Frequency: **30 mins** * Number of submissions: **5** (If your subreddit has more than 5 submissions every half hour you're out of luck unless you use ketralnis' bot) * Post Content: **Title Only** * Post Link: **Tick this** otherwise the tweet will not link to the submission. * I also add the hashtag `#reddit` as a suffix. Continue to the next page and select Twitter as the publishing platform. If you are still logged into your new account it will authorise. The process is now finished! Step Four: Creating your sidebar Twitter logo. Save this image to your desktop as twitter.png Go to your subreddit's editing page and insert this link to the sidebar: Follow us at [](http://twitter.com/mytwitteraccount) 3. Note that this link will not be visible yet! 4. Go to your subreddit's CSS editing page, upload the image here, and add this code: /*Twitter Feed Graphic*/ a[href="http://twitter.com/mytwitteraccount"]:after { width: 68px; height: 16px; content: ""; background-image: url(%%twitter%%); background-position: -0px; display: inline-block; cursor: default } 5. Remember to replace "mytwitteraccount" with your actual twitter account. You should now be done! Bonus Tip If you "follow" some celebrities related to your topic, it may help attract people to your twitter account and your subreddit. submitted by /u/Raerth to r/modhelp [link] [comments][...]
