NASA Astrology Astrology Picture of the Day widget Overview

This plugin, adds a simple widget which pulls the NASA Astrology Picture of the Day in to the admin dashboard. It requires the user to generate an API Key from the NASA API website and support caching the API calls so as not to spam the API.

Using NASA Astrology Astrology Picture of the Day widget

To get an API Key, visit https://api.nasa.gov and add a valid email address to receive your key. Once completed, you can add your API key to the widget settings once the plugin is enabled and added via the dashboard control.

There is also a data caching option which is enabled by default but can be customised. This is to reduce the amount of calls made to the API.
