GasBuddy



  • @doubleT Did send me his Repo for the GasBuddy module. He didn’t want it published as he did not get permission to pull from their API. I can not get it to work unfortunately. I sent a message to doubleT, but he hasn’t been active in a while. @Mykle1 Maybe I can send you the repo and take a look at it? I can’t seem to figure out what I’m doing wrong!



  • @Mykle1 Maybe you can help me decipher this error:

    Should I be looking at line 44 char 22 for something ?

    @dherl0623 said in GasBuddy:

    Unexpected end of JSON input

    The problem seems to be with line 44 of the node_helper, not necessarily character 22 itself. I think you should concentrate on the explanation of the error.



  • @dherl0623 you should log the response of gasbuddy, sounds like you are not getting a valid json response from the api



  • @strawberry-3-141 Going to the site https://www.gasbuddy.com/assets-v2/api/stations/26220/fuels which is the response that GasBuddy gives outputs the following
    {"station_id":26220,"fuels":[{"id":1,"fuelType":"Regular","stationId":26220,"prices":[{"isCash":false,"price":3.01,"reportedBy":"kayChanh","postedTime":"2018-05-17T08:21:56.359Z"}]},{"id":2,"fuelType":"Midgrade","stationId":26220,"prices":[{"isCash":false,"price":3.31,"reportedBy":"Fklem","postedTime":"2018-05-17T01:34:26.786Z"}]},{"id":3,"fuelType":"Premium","stationId":26220,"prices":[{"isCash":false,"price":3.61,"reportedBy":"Fklem","postedTime":"2018-05-17T01:34:26.797Z"}]},{"id":4,"fuelType":"Diesel","stationId":26220,"prices":[{"isCash":false,"price":3.35,"reportedBy":"crazykyser116","postedTime":"2018-05-17T07:35:33.984Z"}]}]}

    Can I share the download link to the module? I haven’t gotten a response back from @doubleT and as far as I know no one has gotten permission from GasBuddy to use their API in this way.

    If you want to, send it to me. I can take a look today or tomorrow.
