MMM-NextRocketLaunch MagicMirror Module

This is a Magic Mirror Module that displays the Next Rocket Launch from Earth. The data comes from the excellent Launch Library 2 API provided by thespacedevs. This is the Launch Library 2 Documentation.

# Change into the MagicMirror modules directory
cd path/to/magicmirror/modules

# Clone this repo as a module
git clone https://github.com/chrisbergeron/MMM-NextRocketLaunch.git

To enable this module just add the following to the MagicMirror config file config/config.js:

1

5
{
module: 'MMM-NextRocketLaunch',
position: 'top_right',
header: 'Next Rocket Launch',
},

NOTE: If this is the only module in your MagicMirror configuration, you can omit the last comma (,).

Next just reload MagicMirror:

1
npm start run

To customize the appearance of the module, you can override the default CSS values by editing the css/custom.css file. Any valid standard CSS components present in MagicMirror or this module’s code can be overridden. This is an example of setting the background to transparent for this module:

/* MMM-NextRocketLaunch */
.module.MMM-NetworkScanner {
background-color:rgba(0,0,0,0.0);
}

Configuration Options

position: 'top_right', /* Required */
header: 'Next Rocket Launch', /* Optional */
},

Project Roadmap

  • Display an actual countdown timer in nodeJS. (If you know how to do this, please feel free to submit a pull request. Sorry, I’m still learning JS.)
  • Parse options that can override the default API Request. Specifically, to only show results that are Cleared or launches from a specific PAD or Spaceport.

Hat Tip to Tim Dows for the script that I used as a template for this - MMM-JsonTable
