Air Quality Macro (v9.0.6)
Jason Snell wrote some code in How Bad Is the Air Out There? to report a PurpleAir sensor reading of air quality in a BitBar menu item.
I've adapted that in this macro to report an arbitrary number of sensor readings in a Custom HTML Prompt that reports the reading as a button to take you to the PurpleAir map and the sensor widget.
I've noted the old instructions for finding a nearby sensor's ID but it seems PurpleAir is making this difficult at the moment, removing the old link and the list of IDs at the same time. But if it restores one or the other, you'll be able to plug your own location into this macro, so here it is.
Ah-ha Moment: You can mine the sensor ID from the URL when you click on the sensor location on the map. I detail the process in the next message.
As configured, it shows air quality around Mount Davidson in San Francisco. It retrieves the readings when you run it.

Changed the instructions to reflect the note below that works for any location with any browser
Revised the CSS so the button readout is always circular
