Using in your HTML Page

You can now use the widget in your custom html page as long as the html file is in a appropriate station directory. E.g.:

1. Create an html page and place in your station files directory.
2. Create a div element and give it an id so you can inject the widget into this area. E.g.: widget1.
3. Add the following scripts before the closing head tag or the closing body tag. E.g.:

        <script type="text/javascript">

            var require = {
                paths: {
