To use this module, add it to the modules array in the config/config.js file:

			lat: 	    '51.508', 		// Latitude

Translations

This is my first module that includes translations. I've included English and German, but the German is purely a Google Translate of the English, so I apologise to any German speakers! Feel free to add additional languages and to change or ping me with corrections.

Troubleshooting

If there are issue getting data out of the module I'm ALWAYS going to ask the following:

  1. Do you have an account set up at OpenUV.io
  2. Do you have an api_key set up?
  3. Do you know the Lat & Long for the location?
  4. If you use the live api documentation here and put in the info you want to use does it respond without an error?
  5. Is the info in your config the same as that you’ve used successfully in the live api docs?
  6. Include the lat, long & alt in the report.
