PWSweather date and time upload format supports "now"
« on: April 03, 2019, 01:09:37 AM »
Just a heads up for anyone else whose homebuilt station is real time clock challenged...

The pwsweather  observation upload  http GET format for "&dateutc=" now supports "now" as s ubstitute for the specific date/time (YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss) format, and will date stamp the observation for you.  (compatible with the Weather Underground inplementation)

Thanks, pwsweather developers.  I was able to port my station (now reporting to both) simply by changing the host web address and php link.

(PS: my previous workaround was to query pwsweather before uploading and ask it what it thought the time and date was)
