Thom,

Looks like there's a missing graphic file that's causing the proxy orbitor to crash when selecting the radar button, if there isn't a radar graphic in the feed.  I would've filed it into Trac, but it doesn't seem to use the same credentials as the forum.

In the file here:  http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac/browser/trunk/src/Weather_PlugIn/Weather_PlugIn.cpp

Line 54 references #define FILE_NO_RADAR_DATA "/usr/pluto/share/weather_no_radar_data.jpg"

That file is not present in the latest packages.  Everything else seems to be working fine though!

I've got current conditions going from the ISY driver to the weather plugin, and it's working well. Just working on getting all the forecast stuff parsing properly from the ISY subscription feed, and then that'll be straight forward to feed into your weather plugin.

Excellent work!  Thanks!

/Mike

Thanks Thom and Phenigma! 

Much appreciated!  I hope Thom's feeling better soon, so he can enjoy the holidays!

(Unfortunately, you have to get used to it;  when you have young kids, they pretty much get sick every winter for the first 6 years.  Been there, done that twice; now dealing with the "tween" stage  ;) )

Happy Holidays to the LMCE community!

/Mike

Hi

Is someone working on a device template for the USA here? I was thinking of starting something but if someone is working on it already it would make more sense to wait. Let me know and let me know if I can help.

Thanks

Jim

And...  If anyone has anything near functional I am happy to work to help integrate that functionality into the system.  :-)

If you want to post your most recent version I can have a look at how it might integrate into the system and into webadmin for configuration.

Are these meant to run from the webadmin?  And as far as the installation table... are you referring to the InstallWizard tables in the database?  I'm not sure what information you're looking for.

I took a quick look at this and the API and you can use Lat/Lon, Zipcode, etc. Also this is not free or it is free with complications.

It looks to me like there is a free and premium api.  A user could create a free account which will give full access to local weather data with up to 4000 requests per day.  There is a key generation portion of some kind.  I haven't gone through it all yet. 

http://www.worldweatheronline.com/api/compare.aspx compares the free vs. premium.

Looks like a good world wide source (read: should work everywhere that I can tell) that can use postal codes (here is Canada) or Zip Codes (US) or lat/long.

I have not yet been able to try it.  I am still wondering if the php script is meant to run standalone or within webadmin.

I looked into this a bit more. Looks pretty promising. Each user would have to get their own key, which seems pretty painless. Just give them an email address. I don't see any radar data and looks like only 5 days forecast.

Is the intent with the PHP script to do a call to that from device?

the api does not have the radar option, however the site has the following animation that I think I can capture it
