A more sane wrapper around browsers' position apis.
var getPosition = ;;
getPosition([options], fn(err, pos))
Request the current geposition and call fn with the possible error - caused e.g. by permission conflicts or hardware problems - and the current position.
options are passed down to the browser's geolocation api, but some sensible
defaults are set, if you don't override them:
The result object also is changed, instead of
it's just a flat object with the
timestamps attribute on itself:
With npm do
$ npm install geo-position
Then bundle for the client using browserify.
