Where are the scripts?
« on: October 01, 2007, 05:00:47 PM »
By request, this new forum has been created for discussions about building dynamic weather websites with PHP and/or AJAX/JavaScript functionality.

So.. where can you get free scripts?

Here's a list (and I'll try to keep this current -- post additional suggestions in this thread).

These folks have offered free PHP scripts:

Anole at   http://scripts.anolecomputer.com/
    * WXGraphic : the quintessential weather banner/avatar script
    * NHCfeedparser : National Hurricane Center RSS feed display

Carterlake at http://www.carterlake.org/weatherphp.php

    * PHP custom tags - This simple script powers CarterLake.org!
    * PHP Weather Underground Radar Text
    * PHP NOAA Advisory
    * Radar Resize with Cache & Second Version - Resizes our radar image, includes caching and "Radar Down" text in image.

    * Simple Radar Resize - Simple code for resizing radar image on the fly.

    * TRACreportshort: takes Nexstorm's full TRACreport and shortens it to a more managable size for displaying.

    * TRAC Graphic - A web based add-on to Nexstorm's TRAC Report, the TRAC Graphic takes the location of storm cells in the report and maps them to a graphic for display on a website. This was a joint project by myself and Jozef in Belgium (joske-online.be). The script is featured on Astrogenic's website!

    * PHP client graphs - These are US versions of graphs by Jozef in Belgium (joske-online.be), derived from Kevin's work at TNET Weather. These graphs require the installation of JP Graph. The graphs require Weather Display and the clientraw feature.

    * Rotating wind arrow - This is a proof of concept idea from code developed by Ben Summers.

    * METAR Temps on Radar - Demo This takes data from a list of METARs and outputs a GRLevelx placefile of data..

Templates can be designed and/or modified as needed to fit a site's look and feel. Personal weather stations that contribute data to the weatherforyou.com/HAMweather Personal Weather Station Program can display their data as the current conditions for their area, display other personal weather station data for other locations, use RAWS data or display the regular METAR data. With HWimage you can offer weather images to be displayed on other web sites with forecasts and current conditions (even your own station's current conditions) that link back to your own web site. Add on modules can be subscribed to providing custom radar and satellite maps with site branding and videos.

Yes!

Use this forum to:
*  announce new scripts
*  request support for scripts (hopefully in the thread announcing the script)
* ask if anybody has a script to do <your need here>

Unless I'm blind, you missed the only script I use, aside from the USGS Earthquake script.

Under CarterLake:

NOAA Advisories

Displays current advisories, watches, warnings, etc. for your local area configurable by FIPS codes and zones.
Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

I'm missing a link to Jim's GR3animation script and SLOweather's Fireweather (CBI) image script...


http://jcweather.us/animategr3.zip is a php script that will create an animated .gif using a sequence of input files.  I use it to make a small gr3 product but is can easily be modified to handle other requirements.

Hi Jim, and thanks for the link.  I couldn't find a specific location on the page you'd cited with a download link -- would you mind creating/modifying a page to have the links to your scripts, and I'll add you to the first posting in the thread.

I did add Jim's (from Juneau County Weather) new scripts page to the list on the first posting.

It's really nice to see more folks creating great weather website scripts and sharing with their fellow weather enthusiasts!

Best regards,
Ken

p.s. please pardon the delay in doing the update Jim.. the cruise and now the flu have slowed my responses a bit.

Hey all! You all are great, and have done a wonderful job of inspiring me to share back some of the unique scripts I've written. So yesterday,  I started my own scripts page at www.castlerockweather.org/scripts.php. These are original scripts that I wrote to make my own site more manageable.

At this point I've only had a chance to cleanup/release 2 small pieces of PHP code, but I have a bunch more to yet release. Let me know what your think. Please feel free to use these scripts on your websites.

If you make modification or see errors, please contact me via email or PM. I'll be sure to rev the code and make available to all.

Thanks,
