Any Known Pollen Count Tiles?

I would like to add a 5-day pollen forecast to my dashboard. I tried creating a custom tile and using a URL from pollen.com that contains a 5-day forecast but pollen.com is not authorizing the URL.

Anyone on here create a pollen count tile or can point me in the direction of one already created?

If it’s an HTML custom tile, the first thing I would check is for CORS restrictions.

If it’s a URL tile, they may block embedding in other pages.

Using dev tools inspector it looks like I get a 405 error, strict-origin-when-cross-origin.

Is that what you are referring to? If so, where in SharpTools and/or the custom tile can I add config to address the issue?

Yes, that means Pollen.com is blocking their pages being embedded in other websites. Many websites do this for their main content, but if they have a ‘widget’ or ‘embed’ functionality, those are usually designed to be embedded in other sites.

It looks like Pollen.com has a weather widget, but it requires that you request access to it.

If you find a good widget or API, be sure to share it here!

Pretty cool idea, please let us know if you’re able to get it working!
