Wanted holiday module



  • If some one can make a module out of this https://holidayapi.com/
    I dont have the skills to make on my self and hope some one picks this up and develop a module from it.

    Here is an test api key to use:
    Test API Key:
    91fa481a-06e9-469f-8d77-650d49017c61
    Test keys are unmetered and return dummy holiday day.

    Here is the Node.js

    I was willing to try this for you but even the free API key you get from https://holidayapi.com only returns historical data.
    {"status":402,"error":"Free accounts are limited to historical data. Upgrade to premium for access to current and upcoming holiday data. Log into your account for upgrade options!"}
    I don’t think anyone here is willing to pay for a premium account. It sort of defeats the purpose of free open source. Sorry friend.

    {"status":200,"holidays":[{"name":"April Fools' Day","date":"2016-04-01","observed":"2016-04-01","public":false},{"name":"Earth Day","date":"2016-04-22","observed":"2016-04-22","public":false},{"name":"National Arbor Day","date":"2016-04-29","observed":"2016-04-29","public":false}]}
    Not really much to work with here to warrant creating a module

    I wrote a module for my joomla site and I use a holiday file of sorts let me check and see where I get my data from…

    I didn’t… I created an xml file that is good until 2020… with all the American Holidays…

    Which you are free to use if you’d like ;)



  • @Mykle1 That i understand and the live free key you get when signing up at holidayapi.com is only Limited to 500 calls per month, historical data only and no for future data.

    Yes, I know. I signed up for the live free API key and that is the key I used to get the data above.

    As soon as I am done finalizing the module I am working on now I will take a look at what you have. That’s fantastic of you to offer it. Thanks! :thumbsup_tone1:



  • @cowboysdude is your module available on github?
    i could live with a workaround with xml. Once created, it has to be updated just once a year. thats ok for me :)


  • Module Developer

    No, not yet :) Still working on it… I have it mostly done just needs a bit more work…



  • Sounds like you are my man. I am looking forward for the vacation and quotation module ;)
