Das Luftdaten Live Widget macht genau das was es soll, einfache Installation, Einbindung in die Widgets problemlos, das Anzeigen der Sensoren IDs auch optimal. Danke, weiter so.

Klar kann man es noch verbessern (Link zur Karte, mittige Darstellung der Ampel), aber ich finde das alles schon sehr großartig und freue mich, dass @bleeptrack das für uns alle anbietet. Thx!
