I have formatted a recipe on Trello which I want to display on the MagicMirror. Trello supports Markdown Syntax for the Description section of Lists. See this.

So it looks pretty on trello's side:
trellorecipe

But shows up like this on the MagicMirror:
mmrecipe

Any chance of an update to your module to display it as entered on Trello with the Markdown Syntax?

Displaying the image on the MagicMirror would be a HUGE BONUS!!!!!

TIA.

This is not an issue.......it's a feature request. My suggestion is that you fork the module go back to the forum and put in a request asking someone to perhaps help you. Asking for help is not the same as asking someone to just do it for you..... MagicMirror is a project where you're supposed to be learning....

I personally thought this to be an issue due to the way that the current module displays text from Trello in a way that is essentially gibberish to most people.

However, as I am learning as I go, I appreciate your advice and direction on HOW to post issues AND feature requests, as there is not much information on the acceptable protocol for the MagicMirror process available ANYWHERE.

There is not a clear definition posted anywhere, on the GitHub Repositories, nor the MagicMirror Forum on what to post where.

Also, I have been trying very hard to learn coding. I have taken the courses on Khan Academy for JavaScript, however, they are very lacking in preparing one to actually write a MagicMirror module. I have read through the .js files of many modules, and cannot seem to figure out how the different files in a module are communicating with each other, nor make a lot of sense out of the .js files as far as being able to make any changes to a particular module without royally screwing it up. If you have any suggestions on open sources for learning that would boost my skill in coding to be able to fix MagicMirror issues and possibly even write my own modules (I have so many ideas), I am all ears.

Thanks!

Also, what does it mean to "fork" a module, and how would one go about doing this and under what circumstances would one do this?
