MMM-SORT - WorldTides API Key Pricing



  • Re: MMM-SORT - (Static Or Rotating Tides)

    @Mykle1 First thanks for the module. Installed it yesterday and everything’s working great.
    I did have a question regarding WorldTides API Keys and pricing - just want to make sure I’m understanding it correctly.

    Their website says:
    “When you register, you get one month of 100 free credits to make API calls.
    After that, credits cost $1.99 per 1000 credits and subscriptions start at only $0.99/mo. Bulk pricing also available for as low as $0.10 per 1000 credits.”

    To me that reads the first month is free then you have to pay to get the module data after that.
    Is that your experience using the WorldTides API?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Hmm, they obviously changed the rules on the developer API. When I wrote this module you were given 1000 free calls per month for a developer API key. This note to myself in the main.js reminded me.

    updateInterval: 60 * 60 * 1000, // Equals 720 of 1000 free calls a month

    I’m terribly sorry but there’s nothing I can do about that. Some of the API’s that used to be free are moving to a paid service. WunderGround being the most infamous around here. If I find some time I can see if there is a free api that offers the same data and swap that into the module.

    Yes @Mykle1 is right. As time goes by free api’s are becoming a thing of the past…
    Best to look around and search for free ones.
