Google Location Sharing Module
I just recently started using Magic Mirror and navigating the 3rd party modules. It is really awesome to see the community that has developed from this effort. Like many, I am using my Mirror as a family dashboard. Something that I feel would be really helpful to add to the mirror is using Google Location sharing to display the location of different family members on the Mirror in a list format. I have searched through and seen many modules using Google Maps API but nothing specific to Location sharing.
I am actively building on my beginner JS skill set and feel this task is well over my head at the moment. I will continue researching this but feel someone out there could create the module much, much, faster then myself.
Thanks again to all.

I was able to do this with shuttles using this app and mmm-iframe-reload
Appears someone is cracking the nut and just needs to be ported.

My module GeoTracking might be helpful…
This is one of the best ideas I’ve ever come across with MagicMirror. Workaround solutions may be great for some situations, however, I would warmly welcome a native Google shared locations implementation, as originally suggested by skuub.
Any prospects, guys?

@metalldetector - Those appear to be keys that you obtain from the various services to register with them.
gmapidis probably the API key for the Google Maps API.
pnidsis the PubNub API key. You’ll have to figure out how to register with both of those services and then extract an API key.
If you figure it out, you can update the README file for the project and issue a pull request. The developer would probably appreciate the help.
