Tide Chart Module

I was able to hack together a tides chart by using this website that has icals of tides for 700+ places along with the calendar module… Works pretty well for my needs and figured I would share since there isn’t a tide chart module. -Kevin

Yay! I will take a look.
I have a module which displays next two tides, time and height, from the WeatherUnderground, but its not ready for primetime (haven’t got the refresh timing working the way I want). Maybe this will mean I don’t have to.

Another method that I used for tides is to install Xtide, and use a cron job to output the predictions into a .ics file, then use the calendar module to display. The advantage to this method is that there is no registration with any service (the tide prediction software is installed and runs locally). Xtide can be downloaded from here: https://flaterco.com/xtide. The calendar module has “anchor” icons, which gives the display a nice touch. Xtide can also output to a variety of different formats, including a nice looking .jpg graph (with lots of config options), which can also be displayed. There were a couple of quirks to overcome to make this work (including where the .ics & .jpg output files need to be saved to), but I like results. Once set up, many different locations are easily added or modified.
