Module to show local traffic information - UK



  • Hey guys, I know that there is a module to show traffic on a specific route, but it would be nice to have a module that showed traffic information for a specific area. For example putting in a post code and then a distance, and getting traffic updates for that. I know that Waze is open source, and shares the traffic data it has, but I don’t know the first thing about making a module. Anyone got any ideas on how to implement this?? Thanks guys. Nick



  • @nickb23 I was able to achieve this with MMM-iFrameReload and an html file in that folder… It looks something like this.

    {
    module: ‘MMM-iFrameReload’,
    header:‘Traffic Map’,
    position: ‘top_right’, // This can be any of the regions.
    config: {
    // See ‘Configuration options’ for more information.
    url: “http://localhost:8080/modules/MMM-iFrameReload/nameofhtmlfile.html”,
    width: “580px”, // Optional. Default: 400px
    height: “1100px”, // Optional. Default: 800px
    refreshInterval: 600 //Optional. Default: 3600 = 1 hour
    }
    },

    with this code below to make the map and save the html in the iframe folder

  • thanks for the reply. Looks very promising. Do you know if it is also possible to have a test version of all traffic in a local area as well?

  • looks like very nice !! this module work ?



  • it has worked fine for me



  • black screen when i add this:

    {
    module: ‘MMM-iFrameReload’,
    header: ‘Traffic Map’,
    position: ‘top_right’, // This can be any of the regions.
    config: {
    // See ‘Configuration options’ for more information.
    url: ‘http://localhost:8080/modules/MMM-iFrameReload/nameofhtmlfile.html’,
    width: ‘580px’, // Optional. Default: 400px
    height: ‘1100px’, // Optional. Default: 800px
    refreshInterval: 600 //Optional. Default: 3600 = 1 hour
    }
    },
    Can i use for my html file the same api key than MMM-traffic ?



  • it looks like you have single quotes where double quotes are needed… as for the api key you can test it by substituting the url with one from another site.



  • Thanks for your help I found my 2 errors with the "
    and i didn’t activate javascript api map in google.
