• I am trying to fetch the windy data, but get an error;
    Unexpected token W in JSON at position 0
    at /node_modules/node-fetch/lib/body.js:48:31
    at processTicksAndRejections (internal/process/task_queues.js:97:5) {
    name: 'FetchError',
    message: 'invalid json response body at https://api.windy.com/api/point-forecast/v2 reason: Unexpected token W in JSON at position 0',
    type: 'invalid-json'

    What could be the problem in my script?

    let _data = { 
    "lat": 52.046,
    "lon": 4.447,
    "model": "iconeu",
    "parameters": ["wind"],
    "levels": ["surface"],
    "key": "..."};
    

    fetch("https://api.windy.com/api/point-forecast/v2", {
    method: 'POST',
    body: _data,
    headers: {"Content-type": "application/json; charset=UTF-8"}
    })
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then(Server => {
    console.log(Server) // Prints result from response.json()
    // var UvNow = Server.result.uv;//Processing UVToday
    // BLApp.apiPut("UvNow/"+UvNow);//Updating better logic variable UVToday
    })
    .catch(error => console.error(error))
    // OpenUvServer = false
    // var StandardProcessing = false
    // console.log("i is: " +i)

    You should look at the windy repository with plugin examples.

    Check this plugin.

    Also, you should not publish your key for Point Forecast API. I removed it from your post. Unlike from eg. Map Forecast, Point Forecast is a server-2-server servise and it is not possible to secure your key against missusing.

    thx, but i changed the key efore posting avoiding abuse of my key. at this moment i still can't get the fetch done. the plugin is webbased? I try to get it done with javascript on a computer

    @Marcelklim said in Javascript fetch:

    fetch("https://api.windy.com/api/point-forecast/v2", {
    method: 'POST',
    body: _data,
    headers: {"Content-type": "application/json; charset=UTF-8"}
    })

    You should try body: JSON.stringify(_data)
