Coming Soon: Weather view, and Weather Events
« on: August 15, 2013, 12:04:54 am »
Hello everyone,

If you've been following the Developers Forum, you may notice that I am developing support for Weather views in Orbiter, and Weather Events, for the next release.

There are two parts being developed, the first part is the Plugin, which runs on the router, and holds the weather information gathered by various weather events (Temperature changed, forecast changed, etc.), and updates the Orbiter displays appropriately,

The other part concerns the Weather devices, which would gather weather from a source(s) and emit events for the Weather PlugIn to catch. This data could come from a weather station, or from online sources such as AccuWeather, The Weather Channel, etc.

Here is a preview video showing the plugin part working. I am feeding the Weather Plugin some fake data, courtesy of MessageSend, so I can test everything.

More information coming soon, enjoy!
