MMM-Todoist

This an extension for the MagicMirror. It can display your Todoist todos. You can add multiple instances with different lists. Only one account supported. The requests to the server will be paused is the module is not displayed (use of a carousel or hidden by Remote-Control for example) or by the use of a PIR sensor and the module MMM-PIR-Sensor. An immediate update will occurs at the return of the module display.

Installation

  1. Navigate into your MagicMirror's modules folder and execute git clone https://github.com/cbrooker/MMM-Todoist.git. A new folder will appear navigate into it.
  2. Execute npm install to install the node dependencies.

		config: { // See 'Configuration options' for more information.
          	accessToken: 'accessToken from Todoist',
			maximumEntries: 60,
