HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
« on: July 05, 2016, 07:21:58 AM »





Good morning ,afternoon,evening

a long rhetoric and winded post but the last I want to say on the matter.

I thought i would do the honourable thing and explain my decision however you are free to make your own judgement,assumption . Im not going to force the opinion
you see it how you wish.

A few days ago i received a request via email for some help , nothing unusual there and that has become the normal morning ritual, I had often dealt with most requests,issues first thing in the morning with a pint of filtered coffee :-) gets the old brain into top gear..

However I always check the url for any simple solutions 95% of time I could resolve an issue with a few email exchanges, but this one particular simply caught my
eye , on first appearance you would think nothing of it then that little "designed by weathersoft.com.au " , but that little simple change of wording drew my curiosity and as i look further into there or his website it became quite obvious and looking further at the detail on a services page we find "has now been replaced with a brand new site designed and implemented by WeatherSoft" .

Too many you will be thinking well thats the way it is the internet is like that , however now put yourself in to my shoes having spent two years collaborating with many weather enthusiasts to create a good looking useable functional template that simply showed you your personal weather station .
Many enthusiasts forwarded ideas, tested versions and wether there input was small or significant what mattered is collabaration helped get the template where it is or was yesterday prior to the decision I took. I felt cheated and totally disillusioned and that was the final tipping point and I made the decision enough is enough.

I was in no way going to sit week in week out continuously implementing ideas forwarded, improvements and so on so someone could sell and use that work for there own personal financial gain. Absolutely no way it is an insult and you simply feel totally cheated and the trust factor diminishes rapidly.

The only way to continue was to start encrypting some of the code , with each issue add on a unique ID then issue the download via request so this all indicated my trust had disappeared and I simply didn't want to do that its just another additional time consuming process and unnecessary to 99% of the ones that use it ..
it leaves a horrible gut feeling inside you.. but as they say "if you leave your car window open with the keys in the ignition then who is to blame"..its the nature of the mindset of the minority that will say to themselves lets take it !!

So has i mentioned on the Cumulus forum
"first and foremost lets not beat around the bush you want to make money ? from something that is offered for free"

but as much as he tried to throw the obvious into different directions the bottom line was

"first and foremost lets not beat around the bush you want to make money ? from something that is offered for free"

so there you are and I received some 122 emails yesterday and overnight not one of them is saying anything other than we are sorry and dissapointed by the actions of an individual , i wont repeat the exact words in most of them . bit I sincerely thank you for your support,kind words and understanding..


but two of the emails,pm really stood out and I think I did create something good didn't I ?
I did create something usable and fresh in design for weather enthusiasts because that was my simple goal from over 2 years ago now .

so here the extracts of those two emails,pm it really was telling me I did create something good didn't I ?

Dear Brian,
I'm so sorry to hear about the wanton plagiarism of your code by a miscreant claiming it as his own, and for sale even!
Makes me very angry both for the callousness of the person who lifted/claimed your code, and the demoralizing effect it has had on you.  Your code is elegant and highly functional, and to have you withdraw from it is a great loss to the weather community as your work enjoyed otherwise wide support and acclimation.  I hope, in time, you might reconsider and pick up the code again.


Ken..Saratoga Creator


Brian,
I finally got your template to work with your latest version…now that I got a WU API key.  I love that template so much and have tried just about all the weather station software out there.  Nothing compares to the elegant yet nicely laid out design you have made.  I would like to remove a couple things on the menu bar like the Celcius stuff, but will not even ask you.  It will be a real challenge to figure it out.  I just browed the WX forum and am deeply saddened by what some idiot has done.  I am 56 years old and have been playing with weather as long as I can remember.  I went the way of the Network Engineer, and I am now retired.  I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a nice piece of software!  I will use it for the rest of my days.  I fully support your decision about calling it quits.  When a hobby becomes a job it takes the fun out of it…and when someone steals from you to make a profit, it makes you no less than pissed off!

Again,
Your software is the only thing I will ever want.  Thank you for such a perfect way to get the data I want at my fingertips whenever I am at my computer…
Have a wonderful life and know that there are at least a thousand people telling 10,000 more about your stellar work.

Sincerely,

Michael A......


"Just to add my thanks and admiration for what you've done, your template is truly beautiful as well as functional, you have such a talent for what you do.
"
Steve..Cumulus Software creator

lets not forget Erik Madsen(translation idea), Eric Rechlin(theme switching),Wim (meteobridge solutions) , Tony (HRvista- created unreleased mysql for cumulus/MX users) 

The what would of have been September release.

All modules have optional positions so all twelve modules you could choose what positions you wanted particular data to shown in and a blank module to create
your own or turn off something that was not relevant to your weather station
3 extra optional top modules to show extra sensors last version has one extra sensor module.
Meteobridge API users mysql database usage bypass weather underground and use your own data with ,mysql(i) database for charts.
Cumulus/MX users bypass weather underground and use your own data with ,mysql(i) database for charts.

but sadly it was not to be..

so I want thank you all that participated wether it was something small or significant it all counted..

so its not a take care and good bye cruel Im leaving you today, Im still around but there will be no updates or releases under any circumstances released from weather34, if make exception for one I have to make it for all and I simply don't want to fall into that trap..

alternatives:

Saratoga http://saratoga-weather.org/template/
Leuven https://support.leuven-template.eu
Meteotemplate http://meteotemplate.com
Cumulus http://weatherbyyou.com

there are more I am sure ..

Nice :-)

I always prefer the dark themes for everything, in MT I also have dark and light themes, I think it was definitely a good idea. Especially when you are in a darker environment the shiny white background in general on the internet is quite annoying (still waiting for Chrome to get something like that too :D).

I was initially drawn to the template because of its soft/simple appearance www.komokaweather.com/pws/cumulus.php.  Now that there have been many changes and additions to the page the black does bring out some things better, but both are nice.

Enjoying,
Paul

Hi Brian. Just a quick question.

Quote
paul many thanks , xcom many thanks,  michael good to hear from you again hope all is well and your prosperously healthy

Since you particularly named all the people that commented on your new addition, it makes me think if you dont want me to post anything at all in this thread. I thought giving you a praise you wouldnt mind, but of course if you say you dont want me to say anything here Im ok with that and I will ignore this thread. The only reason I ask this is that I really just said the exact same thing as all the others and you specifically named all the others, except me.

I know you never posted anything in the Meteotemplate thread (though I wouldnt mind at all if you did, even if it was very negative), so if you want me to completely ignore your template, let me know, I would take it into account and do so. I really wouldnt want to post here if it is something you dont want me to do (and in such case I would probably also delete this post later on).

Thx

And just one more thing, I really meant what I said, I think the dark theme is a really useful addition.

hi

HI thanks for the comments,emails appreciated and applied all the fixes and corrected some errors made more improvements

now completely reworked all areas to reflect the newer darker appearance see the screenshot , unfortunately no easy way to reflect these changes with a simple css upgrade as the charts form highcharts need additional css added to that actual jQuery itself .so save your settings.php somewhere and just upload and replace everything .

note the client raw and cumulus main file is called index.php not cumulus.php or metric.php etc anymore

fixed next moon no idea why it jumped a month but this formula is totally mind blowing and be glad find an easier solution to use .
fixed too dark css on some fonts
all pop areas now reflect darker version

as always its on http://www.idesign34.com/homepws/homeweather.html

iyi bayramlar ....



I cant download it. It takes me to a 404 page with a spam page...

hi sorry its not a spam page its 404 with redirect info for page not found, one of my clients no longer uses the domain and server however she is stuck with it until the host package expires in november so now we just use it for developing and storage ,so we just make use of it for now. i was uploading to the download folder short while ago so sorry for the inconvience caused which probably caused the 404 .

yes you can narrow the earthquake to regional , it is automatically driven by your lat lon in the settings.php when you run stationcron.php it will update to your regional earthquakes with a magnitude of 2 or more its not possible to nail it down to your neighbourhood or city  unfortunately .

if you the larger magnitude displayed only for your region drop me a line its not a complicated edit to do .

enjoy have fun its a hobby ..

hi erikk

firstly let me say thank you for your concerning emails every time we have a suicide bomb disaster here in istanbul , its really appreciated and warmly acknowledge and we are vigilant
but alarmed to say the least , the last one at the airport i have stood there in those areas 100s of times my wife also worked there for 10 years and guess we were due to fly the next morning.. really appreciate the thoughts .

as for the template its looking good its getting easier and going in the right direction hopefully more of direction of a pleasant user experience for the curious enthusiast to the hobbyist its far from a being a template for statistics and other resources but who knows how it will evolve .

en buyuk besiktas sampiyon 2016 :-) yeni sezon sampiyon lig !!! let you work that out :: take care

hi

i made some minor changes this morning , based on the viewport in the index.php and windirection.php .the wind direction was having a small jerk or jump in the text on smaller devices when the value changes , i was able to see that one and fix.

cross checked on iphone4,5,6 + iPad mini & Pro and a samsung s5(android) i didn't experience or was able to replicate these layout discrepancies ,

you can check if it works for you by viewing http://idesign34.com/pws/istanbul161.php prior to installing .

is somewhat difficult to address when i cant replicate the problem realtime .

the current download has been updated

http://www.idesign34.com/homepws/homeweather.html

will get there sooner or later..

have a nice day brian

Thanks for the update.

xcom many thanks

also big thank you to John somewhere in the states Harpers Ferry for highlighting the error in the monthly output charts not converting to non metric unfortunately I crossed over the metric files for monthly data . THE DOWNLOAD WAS UPDATED  to reflect that change and correction, the download updated only has changes to the non metric folder in each version.

Hi

before anyone makes an assumption please read below you perhaps will understand my decision .

due to circumstance i now find myself in and if you are aware of the news on a regular basis you will hopefully understand why I no longer
can develop or continue to contribute to the weather template.

unfortunately events that have occurred here in Istanbul,Turkey in the last 6 months as increasingly caused myself much mental stress and grave concern for
my wife and my personal welfare .right now for the last two days we have not slept or gone out of the house and still feel much uncertaintiy ahead of us we pray for the opposite but these circumstances are beyond our control  .

I hope to find someone who can take over and support and continue to develop it with the same outlook to design and user experience , i have emailed a few who I think share the same outlook and have the experience to continue developing it and offer some reasonable support.it doesn't actually require much most common issue is cron jobs and where server configurations can be different.

IM SO SORRY really mean that I enjoy the weather challenge and have been a keen hobbyist on and off since i was 16 years old I'm now 54(soon) .

so there we are I'm sure in the near future hopefully someone will keep it going if not and you have copies of the template feel free to develop it and maintain it for yourself .

sometimes more important things in life drive the decision and right now that is the case for personally.

hopefully the template will inspire others to create template designs using clean UI's web development, technology is rapidly changing and user experience is now at the forefront of those new designs . user experience is important functionality needs to be balanced with the user interface to often it is ignored and the end result is not a pleasant user experience especially in the day and age of touch screen devices .

if you are interested in developing or continuing development please drop an email we can Skype and i can provide some details to transfer the necessary files and information.

take care Brian..

Hi Brian,

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to have an awesome template, Sir. Please take care of yourself and your family. That is what is most important.

Hi Brian,

I completely understand. I am glad you are ok and when I saw the news on Friday evening, I immediately thought of you, hoping you are ok. And it must surely have been a stressful experience. In such situations, a hobby such as meteorology, or even web development, is something one does not care about.

Either way, whatever you do now and wherever you go, I wish you all the best. I hope things will be ok again and maybe you will come back to the template, maybe not. Even if not, you can just drop a post here about how you are. Despite the fact we did have a few arguments in the past, I always liked your template, always liked what you do and I still think it was all just a misunderstanding (and I told you that in the recent PM I sent you a few days ago).

Your template was/is again something "unique". It is not better or worse than any of the other available template. The great thing about all these templates is that they don´t compete with each other, each one is ideal for someone else and yours is ideal for someone who does not care that much about detailed graphs of everything and rather wants an out-of-the box solution that will look great also on mobile devices, have a fresh modern design and show them all they want. And I even had a few people to whom I recommended it, when for example they found my template overcomplicated.

One thing I always liked about your template (and also told you in that PM), is the way you use CSS.  =D> =D> =D> Obviously you have lot of experience with that.

Take care

im glad you understand and the reality of it so true and alarming however this is a weather forum not a place discuss anything else so get in touch via email some other user from another forum suggested you would be a good choice take it over or at least make it available to others , i don't know exactly how to approach it but right now my thoughts and thinking are pretty clouded .

I'm very open to any ideas from anyone even if they want to rebrand it or whatever .

the code is not complicated in terms of css however some of the jQuery i wrote myself particularly the WU scripts however not everyone likes the use of WU for different reasons be it inaccurate, not localised enough,reliability etc.. that area could easily be replaced just by having optional modules/php etc . to be honest it would be as good or poor as coding skills allow it to be.

thanks for your heart felt emails and messages but please this is a weather forum i don't want to engage or encourage any other of type of discussions .much appreciated and please respect the nature of this forum .

you can contact me via email if anyone wishes to distribute or takeover unfortunately my low cost hosting package expires end of this month and i don't have any intention to renew it .

OK, you are right, we should stick to weather....

Just one thing - regarding your template and me taking it over.

I remember you did already offered this to me once back in autumn when you felt you wont have any more time to continue with it.

This is my stance about it: I have downloaded the code a few weeks back, just to look at it and I think I understand it fairly well. That said, I probably would be able to take it over, in the sense I would be able to help people with setting it up or if they ran into some problems. However, I obviously have very limited time and so this would most likely mean the development would not continue - i.e. from my side it would only be support.

Probably the best thing would be if there was someone else who would be willing to continue this and I am then more than happy to help them if they are overwhelmed or also time limited and have too many support requests.

Just two things I want to add:

- whoever takes it over, definitely let them know that if they need help from my side with anything, they can feel free to contact me

- I noticed you deleted your template homepage. I think that might not be the best idea. I would say that unless it becomes non-functional for whatever reasons (changes in WU API etc.), i dont see a reason why people should not use it any more. So just in case this was due to the fact you cannot host it, then let me know, I can offer you temporarly hosting it on my domain, I would create a subdomain for it, I assume it is not very big so it should be ok for my server.

- I noticed you deleted your template homepage. I think that might not be the best idea. I would say that unless it becomes non-functional for whatever reasons (changes in WU API etc.), i dont see a reason why people should not use it any more. So just in case this was due to the fact you cannot host it, then let me know, I can offer you temporarly hosting it on my domain, I would create a subdomain for it, I assume it is not very big so it should be ok for my server.

its no problem Jachym  I'm sure the download page will re-appear in due course my host account will expire 24th , and now have someone to offer the download so in a few days it will appear . .thanks for the offer .

Why not open source it, and put it on somewhere like GitHub? With an 'authorised updater' or two, then anyone who wants to can obtain their own copy and keep it in sync with the master, and also contribute changes and updates back - the pull requests being approved by the guardians.

Edit: and I practice what I preach, the SteelSeries weather gauges, SteelSeries gauges them selves (though authored by someone else), and some CumulusMX server side graphs are all on GitHub.
