To make de naming of the virtual device follow the conventions of modules, I suggest to add an underscore in line 36 of index.js

Code: Select all

        deviceId: "Daylight_" + this.id,

I did that change in my local set-up. It does require that your logical rules are modified manually, as the system loses it "DaylightXX" device and does not automatically replace it with the "Daylight_XX" device.

I'll test it for a few days before I put the new version up.

That is a known problem on github, but not yet been assigned.

EDIT 20150329: Github issue #190

I don't think it's a big deal. I'll add a warning to the original post when I upload the new version.

Another reason I'm waiting with an update is that tonight I will switch to daylight savings time, and I want to see if everything works. If not, I'll fix that too.

EDIT:
Tonight was the switch to DST. My logging shows that at 03:01 the Daylight module correctly calculated the new sunrise time in the (new) local time.
There was a reboot of my Raspberry between that and the actual sunrise (not sure where that is coming from, my Raspberry has been acting up lately.
The sunrise event was raised at the correct time.

Can I suggest an 'offset' for each of sunrise and sunset? For example I'd like my porch lights to come on about an hour before sunset, then I'd set a delayed scene to turn them off 2 hours later. Potentially the same behavior for the morning. The offset might be negative depending on the scenario.

A work-around is to make multiple instances of Daylight where you specify different longitudes that reflect the time offset you need.

In my own installation (v2.0.1 now) I added an icon to this module to see how I can make it more in line with the standard modules.

Problem
The icon does show in the Apps collection, but when I add and configure this app, the configuration screen does not show that icon. I have no clue what happened. See my private Github space for the changes I made to Martijn's version 0.7.0

Side note: Also tried to make a separate language file to support multilinguality with a separate language file in folder lang. Those strings also did not appear on the screens. I quess that problem is related to the icon issue, so I have not yet committed those changes to github


edit 13:59: The code related to the configuration screen image according to Inspector of Firefox says:

Code: Select all

<img src="/ZAutomation/api/v1/load/modulemedia/null/icon.png" class="app-image-alpaca ng-scope" ng-src="/ZAutomation/api/v1/load/modulemedia/null/icon.png" ng-if="input.icon" alt="img">
The path to the icon seems wrong. Other modules show the moduleName instead off null in the path.

Tried this on a different Pi, same result. Did install an other userModule, that installed OK. Looks like the problem is with Daylight module, and not directly in the v2.0.1 release

Solved it for the icon. I suddenly remembered that for the new v2.0.1 the module.json configuration file needs an entry for the moduleName:

Code: Select all

"moduleName": "Daylight",
Unfortunately that does not yet solve my additional problem with the external translation file

Edit: Translation has been solved too

@mhorst

My final polished version adapted for v2.0.1 is here for consideration, and possible inclusion in the ZIP in the first post of this topic.

Edit 12:24 : I could not resist adding sunset/rise times to the virtual device

Edit 20150709: removed Daylight from my github space since I returned the maintenance token to mhorst
