Modifying existing module

  • I have installed this module:
    And I have reallized that it gives me the wrong times. So what I wanted to do is, to use the same app but with an other API. I am a very beginner in javascript and json so I have to ask you for help.

    I want just the times of a specific city. I don’t want to change it with lon, lat or the timezone. The times should be static. The code should just take the data from the API:

    What I need from this API is the value of: Aksam, Ogle, Ikindi, Imsak, Yatsi

    So what I have done is, I changed this code:

    Here are the changes:

    • In line 64 I changed the url to the new one: this.url =

    • I have commented the lines 92 to 113 out

    • In line 127 I changed the time of fajr to get the time of the api (Value of: Imsak):
      FajrTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Fajr) : MPT.Fajr;
      FajrTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Imsak) : MPT.Imsak;

    • I have commented the lines from 138 to 159 out

    • line 173:
      DhuhrTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Dhuhr) : MPT.Dhuhr;
      DhuhrTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Ogle) : MPT.Ogle;

    • line 195:
      AsrTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Asr) : MPT.Asr;
      AsrTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Ikindi) : MPT.Ikindi;

    • commented from 206 to 227 out

    • line 241:
      MaghribTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Maghrib) : MPT.Maghrib;
      MaghribTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Aksam) : MPT.Aksam;

    • line 263:
      IshaTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Isha) : MPT.Isha;
      IshaTimeCell.innerHTML = this.config.show24Clock == false ? this.convert24Time(MPT.Yatsi) : MPT.Yatsi;

    • commented from 274 to 295 out

    So what I know is that I am not doing the access correctly. For example the MPT.Yatsi is not correct. I also tried MPT[0].Yatsi or MPT.0.Yatsi but these also did not work.

    I do not know if I also have to change the default:{…} Would it be enough to delete the lon lat and the other components I am not using? And do I also have to change other things (files) to get it to work? I hope you guys can help me.

  • @SirVer it may be that the different API returns data in a different format.

    I am not near my computer today, so I cannot look at it

  • @sdetweil Thanks you replyed. Could you look in the code when have time?

    @SirVer Data returned is definitely in a different format.
