Hi, I’m trying to get my Inkyshot display to vary between the quote and the weather at set intervals using the guide in the git hub repo however I can’t seem to get it working. Once I set the variable NEXT_DISPLAY + weather an ad the ALTERNATE_FREQUENCY variable the Inkyshot only displays the weather and does not go back to the quote. It’ll update the weather at the intervals set in the ALTERNATE_FREQUENCY but it won’t show the quote unless I get rid of both variables. Any thoughts?
Hi and welcome to the forums. I have tried that and you are right, this does look like a bug. I will notify my colleagues and will keep you updated.
We will post an update as we address the issue.
- default --> quote only.
- ALTERNATE_FREQUENCY set --> switch between quote/weather
- DISPLAY_QUOTE = 0 --> showing only weather
substitute the last block of code in update_display.py after the comment
Alternate to other display code
if "DISPLAY_QUOTE" in os.environ and os.environ["DISPLAY_QUOTE"]=='0': os.environ["NEXT_DISPLAY"] = 'weather' else: if(NEXT_DISPLAY == 'quote' and "ALTERNATE_FREQUENCY" in os.environ): os.environ["NEXT_DISPLAY"] = 'weather' else : os.environ["NEXT_DISPLAY"] = 'quote'
