A simple but personal Magic Mirror display
This project is my attempt at a personal Magic Mirror.
# Clone the repository git clone https://github.com/roryclaasen/Magic-Mirror-Project.git mirror # Set the current directory to be the cd mirror # Run the mirror installation sh install.sh
After the mirror has been installed the config can be changed.
Example Config (my config)
# Title of the webpage title: Magic Mirror # Jekyll description description: A Mirror Display # Source directory, do not change unless moving source out of the public folder source: "public" # Author of the mirror author: Rory Claasen # Author of the mirror author_url: "https://roryclaasen.dev" # Compress theme to reduce webpage load compress_html: comments: ["<!-- ", " -->"] clippings: all startings: [html, head, body] # Sass controller sass: sass_dir: assets/style style: :compressed # Mirror Module settings module: # Weather Settings weather: visible: true # Location of latitude and Longitude of where forecast should be set latitude: "50.892206" longitude: "-0.957955" # Clock Settings clock: visible: true # Calendar Settings calender: visible: true # Number of events that should be loaded (Not necessarily visible) maxEvents: 9
A file called
_private_config.yml needs to be created for the weather widget to work.
# Private Mirror Module settings module: # Weather Settings weather: # DarkSky API key key: "THISISANAPIKEY"
Time And Date
new Date(). The module gest updated every half second to be slightly more actuate in the display.
The code can be found in time.js.
I am using the google calendar APIs, on the first time viewing the page there is a prompt to authorize this app to access google.
The code can be found in calendar.js.
The code can be found in forecast.js.
The monitor that I am using is an old one that was lying around. The important part is the screen size that is 1280px x 1024px
The mirror that I will be using will be a 2 way Acrylic mirror. As of yet is still yet to be bought but it will most likely be bought from Cut Plastic Sheeting.
The frame I used was build from two frames bought from amazon. I can’t remember which one it was but it doesn’t really matter what you use as long as the mirror fits.
- USB Hub
- Tontec 150Mbps USB WIFI Dongle Adapter for Raspberry Pi
Mouse and keyboard
These will be plugged in when I need to. They are not essential when the mirror is working
