I have made a new release (v1.1.0) with an alarm popup. Also added a screenshot.
See first post for release note.

The Toon has a buzzer does it? Is it possible for the NL-Alert app to use that buzzer when an Alert message pops up?

Unfortunately the Toon kernel doesn't contain proper drivers for the buzzer, so it is a no-go for now

I just updated to NL alert 1.1.1 because of a qrcode timer issue .. the timer wasn't stopped after exiting the config screen so my server is now receiving lot's of qrcode config requests :)

No problem. I'll just ask you to create Amber alert app now also ;-)

If you first let a kid disappear, otherwise I cannot test it. Testing can take some time :lol:
First finish my Toon Bot now.

And... today we all got a NL-alert.
The polygon region was the area of the country NL.
I was suprised not to see a popup on the Toon. So I dived into the code.

You have chosen the (NL alert provided) areaCenter and then calculate the distance to the point. Marking it 'regio' or 'lokaal' depending on the settings in the NL-alert Toon app.
This didn't work for this situation as the areaCenter was somewhere in the middle of the country, so for most toons outside there configured region. But we all got a NL-alert message and I think Toon should have shown it also.

NL-alert api also provides the area polygon in gps-coordinates. I found (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/225 ... -a-polygon) a method the check if a given coordinate is with a given polygon. Using this method, you can remove the 'regio' and 'lokaal' idea from the app and just provide the message 'if within region' (and for test cases 'show all messages, also outside region').

Could you look if this is something you want to change? Or do you want me to change that?

Indeed the distance to the areacenter was used. This was easy to make :lol:
Problem is also that the area is not always (like this alert) an closed polygon and I have not a lot of examples. So therefore the choice for areacenter distance.

But I was already looking into this.

I have changed the alerting based on NL-ALert area instead of the NL-Alert center distance in V1.2.0.
Updated the first post.
Alerting for regio is still possible (like the real NL-Alert app). If you don't want this, configure it to 0.
