Yes, if you install the template using 'git clone', then you can use 'git pull' to get the updates seamlessly.

I hope the Meteobridge git distribution also handles initial install and has a .gitignore setting to avoid clobbering your settings1.php file on updates (the CU-HWS distribution I host does that :) )   https://github.com/ktrue/CU-HWS

Keep in mind that the various versions of HWS are diverging and parts that work in one distribution won't necessarily work in another due to the tight combining of weather software type and template base.   The CU-HWS supports Cumulus/CumulusMX (and WeeWX, WeatherCat with appropriate realtime.txt generator templates).

hello Ken

it is good to see your adding your own touches that was the whole idea and was very happy when you offered to maintain it , others who use it will reap the benefit knowing that the ideas are from trusted source..

Lightmaster Im not an expert more of a complete outright novice when it comes to Github and I find it hard work or just plain boring learning new methods
, i personally use a piece of software called Coda for mac it interacts directly to my website when i connect through it so i can update as i edit ,ive used that for a few years but its not free but has all the options of working php/css/jquery you would ever need and continuously gets newer plugins as the months go bye...https://panic.com/coda/plugins.php#Plugins

for the meteobridge version have a really nice guy taking over has good background in code and design professionally he basically will just
carry on as normal and apply fixes,updates ,enhancements once he his ready the main info page will reflect that .The release this afternoon is going to be the same version there on, it has been stripped and cleaned and reduced considerably in size a lot of painstaking hours went into hopefully getting it as good as it can be.. as for me I have had enough personally and I guess it is called writers block and failing eyesight :-) guess age catches up eventually....

so Ken look forward to see how it pans out perhaps add 12+4 modules :-)

ok lightmaster your wish is my command , i installed the mac APP for github and created a local repo on mac desktop so any changes that  are made are  pushed to https://github.com/weather34/Meteobridge-Weather34-Template

it was NOT as tedious as I thought it would be,kind of imagined sitting there for a few hours trying to understand it but using the desktop app for mac it took about ten minutes to fathom out ..

note it will move to another repo in May ..

Lol. I've played around with git a bit before, and it is surprisingly easy to get started with. One thing to note though is that git will not create empty folders, so you have to put something in there for it to create an empty folder, like an empty readme file. Look at chartswu for instance.

Also for settings files, upload them once and then add a .gitignore file for the settings files so it won't update people's settings back to the default.

works somewhat different through the app , i did realize when using the browser for upload about folders especially there were lots of files but the app overcame that think that was what prompted me to install the app.. not seeing any chartswu folder empty?

anyway not going to spend much time on it the app is pretty self explanatory and easier to use..thats as far Im going with it..

It looks like Purple Air is not updating for the Air Quality module on my we server. I just replaced the files with the latest from https://github.com/weather34/Meteobridge-Weather34-Template a few minutes ago to be sure it hasn't already been fixed. However it is working great on my weatherbridge NanoSD, which is only updating the files via reboot.

The rest of the modules look to be updating just fine.

Oh, it looks like the station ID isn't updating, and the one you were using for testing is being passed; Station ID:12194 Updated: 22:36

My ID in easyweathersetup is 23813.

hello

a minimun of a working url would speed up resolving , i dont use purple air so i cant confirm use of ID ..thought ? perhaps manually kick the stationcron.php as that runs at interval periods ..purple air is not realtime as it is pulled from the API at intervals to prevent abuse of API ..brian

Makes sense, right now I have it internal until I get things looking right. I think you are right though, I think my 15 minute stationcron.php job is failing, and have confirmed purpleair.txt is not getting updated.

Interesting, when I test stationcron.php, I get a 500 ERROR response on Live Data tab.
"2019-02-17 11:36:50 Sent: 2019-02-17 11:36:50 http://pws01/PWS/mbdbfiles/stationcron.php: 2019-02-17 11:36:50 ERROR 500: Internal Server Error."

When I test the other 2 they both succeed.

hi

error 500 can be a multiple of things but rest assured it is server related could be permissions ? could be timeout slow response times when calling an external API from local based server ? anything residing in server error logs ?
but could be anything not easy to diagnose remotely and even worse without a url to diagnose..google may be your friend with a search phrase 500 Internal Server Error.

Yup, I'm digging, and have a suspicion.
So it is running stationcron.php, and is completing down to line 18 for sure, as ($output='../mbcharts/result.csv';) this file is getting updated, and has valid data in it. It definitely in not updating any of the files after that.

Now I'm gonna dig through some logs ;)

So I add error handling to php.ini, and no longer receive an error in the Live Data tab (that was where I had the 500 error before). I've turned on error reporting in stationcron.php, but do not see any errors in any of the logs in /var/logs, or when going to http://pws01/PWS/mbdbfiles/stationcron.php in browser.
I've also gone over all of the file folder and sql permissions. ](*,)
Gonna go do some other things for a bit and see if anything comes to me.

Ha, fixed it  \:D/
I noticed something strange, when I ran php -v it reported 7.2 was running. When I went to my phpinfo page, it reported 7.0.
read about some compatibility that 7.0 had with things like fopen.
I decided I should just remove them all and replace with PHP7.3. Now my little RaspberryPi v3 webserver is happy.

Also for settings files, upload them once and then add a .gitignore file for the settings files so it won't update people's settings back to the default.
I recommend using a .gitignore file like
Code: [Select]
.DS_Store
#
# Ignore file for CU-HWS configuration
#
# ignore the downloaded json files (but not the wuupdate.php there
jsondata/*.txt

# ignore the graphics data file downloads
chartswudata/*

# ignore the demodata files
demodata/*

# ignore settings1.php as it contains the user's current configuration
settings1.php

# ignore all compare backup files
*.bak

I also added a initial-settings1.php (which was a copy of settings1.php sample configuration minus DarkSky/Metar keys). and added code to both index.php and easyweathersetup.php to create a settings1.php on the first invocation of either script if the file is missing (which it would be based on a git clone first install).
Code: [Select]
if(!file_exists('settings1.php')) {copy('initial-settings1.php','settings1.php'); }
Just helps make first install easier, and prevents clobbering a fully setup system with a subsequent 'git pull'.

good morning

glad your up and running ok , github is something i should have done years ago , i recall a guy with a username Ironhorseman telling me to set it up on Github i ignored his ideas regrettably or was just too preoccupied and never took the time to look at it closely.However if I had done think it would have been more beneficial for end users and a lot less to and throwing .so anyway its all done now and it actually makes it far easier to hand over .so there we go a step in the right direction ..

I also installed a IOS app called Codehub  https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/codehub-a-client-for-github/id707173885?mt=8
installed for my iPads and tested the notifications think thats quite cool for end users and for also editing files on the fly .....

anyway have fun hope its of use and gives you a pleasant view of the weather ...brian

app i installed

It doesn't seem to change based on which Davis hardware you set it for, but you can manually change it. Open up index.php and look for the line at the bottom that says:
Code: [Select]
img src="img/designedfor-1.svg"And change it to:
Code: [Select]
img src="img/designedfordavisvue.svg"

good morning

hopefully screenshot shows below using the setup screen to show a VUE hardware svg ..this is using the current master version uploaded to GITHUB a few days ago .in the post above it shows you the various options and what it displays in the footer . I was going to hardware like fine offset clones but so many variants would take me a few months to create an svg for each of the models ..
if you get stuck feel free to drop a PM or there are plenty of experienced users here who can help out and do follow the updates via https://github.com/weather34/Meteobridge-Weather34-Template you can generally update with single files if you on the master version as each change is listed and all you need to todo is take the file that was updated but do make sure you are on the master version.
as lightmaster pointed out in PM "Also, GitHub does a great job of showing you the changes made in a commit and in a pull request. If you click on "files changed" after you click on a pull request, it'll show you every change made."

screenshot below shows the vue in my demo ..brian

new files/icons added for the new API from weather underground .you will not be able to use these just yet until WU starts issuing api keys once they are readily available there will be option to use either darksky or the new limited 5 day forecast from WU..but scripts are all done its just standard json nothing complex...

https://github.com/weather34/Meteobridge-Weather34-Template

its not much different from darksky somewhat shorter forecast periods limited to 5 day but can be broken down into day/night periods ..personally nothing to get excited about and when the keys start being issued in general you can try it out .

there will be a few options to setup in the setup screen i.e units ,format , it will pull the location from the original lat lon .so it will have a 3 day module and 8 day/night period module

https://api.weather.com/v3/wx/forecast/daily/5day?geocode=$lat,$lon&language=en-US&format=json&units=$unit&apiKey=$apiwukey


returns something similar to this

good morning

for those that want to use WU forecast data when the API keys are available please drop a pm i will forward on the files needed to pull the forecast.
its worth noting it does not offer hour forecast daily data from what I can gather and is limited to 5 day though i did see 6 days appear. also note
sometimes the API produces a null for the current day often later in the day so there is a fallback to cater for this . so it will look like below and thats about as much as you can do with it I think , there are some references to thunder and other little tidbits in the API but how useful they are for you remains to be seen .

Brian,

WU has been talking about the new API keys for PWS in their Forum, but I have not heard anything specific. I did send an email to get on the list for the free API. Looks like it will have some advantages and some disadvantages when compared to Dark Sky. Nice to have a choice within your template.
 
By the way, did you see any anomalies in the MBrealtimeupload.txt file I sent you (" Max Rainfall 31st December 1969"). The only thing I have noticed is a large number for "Rain Total ALL" in my Meteobridge History. I am not sure what Rain Total ALL represents - there is no time/date associated with it.

Cheers,

Chuck

hello chuck

wu api key not sure how i got a key or access , i never emailed them neither requested anything or had any direct contact with any officials etc , i just logged into normal account and it said generate key and that was it .
not sure what the advantages are to be honest i dont see any at all in comparison to darksky all the additional wu services/ extras need payment to subscription . but then again some may prefer a 5 day forecast from wu .no current conditions in terms of weather up in the sky the current conditions seem to be station data you upload so as we already have that data via meteobridge data you can see the wu api is rather limited..as we say in uk its a bit of damp squid ...

your rainfall total icant reproduce it ,i did try last weekend ill take another look see if can spot it..from a very cold and snowy istanbul have a great weekend...brian
