can you help me ?
This is an area I am not fully familiar with although I have hit the same problem many times. In my test with Url:
I get an error:
“Access to fetch at ‘https://www.astrophotozone.com/am_test_service.json’ from origin ‘https://ruuth.xyz’ has been blocked by CORS policy: No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource. If an opaque response serves your needs, set the request’s mode to ‘no-cors’ to fetch the resource with CORS disabled.”
My understanding is that you need to set on your web server a setting as
Otherwise browsers will block cross origin requests.
There are two solutions I can see:
- Your server https://www.astrophotozone.com should allow cross origin requests as described above. I changed setting on Access-Control-Allow-Origin setting to * on my own site and it solved the problem when I got a similar error.
- Copy AstroMosaic.html to your site and run it from there. Then you do not get automatic fix updates but avoid changing site settings.
It is also possible to set a browser extension that allows cross origin requests. But it is not a generic solution.
Here is a web site that explains the case quite well:
I just tested and yes, you need to the the .js file too.
Maybe the easiest way is to go to https://github.com/jarmoruuth/AstroMosaic/releases, download the source code zip file and unzip all files to your destination folder. Then it is easy to update to the latest version if needed.
i ve test it this weekend , it works nice when i put the two file on my website .
so i can make a link on a google sheet for my target list. Thanks for your work !
just a question , is your api able to catch only the rise , set and transit time of an object ?
Nice to hear that you got it working.
My tool can show rise, set, transit and altitude of an object. Is there something else that would be useful to show?
