New weather template for meteobridge users
« on: May 04, 2021, 10:24:37 AM »
Hi

I'm new here.

In the past couple of years I have rolled my own "weather template" and would be curious if others would like to use it?

It uses meteobridge to send a HTTP request with the payload to the API, which stores it in a mongo database and the charts application handles the rest.

.Net 5 framework, Bulma CSS and AmCharts JS for charting...

Forecasts use the : 5 Day Daily Forecast for Personal Weather Station Owners - v3.0 from WU.

It can be found at https://weatheru.co.za

It is still a work in progress  ;)

Your feedback would be appreciated  [tup]

Kind Regards
Ohan Smit

Looks very useful and nice!
Maybe loading time is little bit slow, but it depends from many things in web server and hosting company.

Hi there

Thank you for your feedback

Ah yes, this is due to the fact that I host my sites from my home server here in Cape Town South Africa.

Regards

Hi

Interesting that you mentioned speed.

Upon further investigation I've now enabled the correct compression module in IIS so the response should be much better.

First load


2nd load (only the weather records) it was 93.4kB before


Thanks for pointing that out

Huzzah!

Looks very nice. I would definitely be interested in trying it.

Hi

Awesome!

I'm working on the readme in my source code repository and will update soon :)

Regards

I'm a bit confused by the "Hourly" page. The Unified and Today pages have time selectors that seem to open the hourly page for that time. But the hourly page itself is fixed at the last hour with no option to change it?

It looks quite nice on a cheapo tablet in Kiosk mode.

Hi

Yes, as this is still a work in progress, I didn't think that one through.

I've added the hour time picker to the hourly page to change hours for the current day.

I will in due course add weekly and monthly pickers too

I'm polishing the final readme with instructions to set it up.

So far these steps are:
  • install mongo db
  • install .net runtime
  • Setup IIS app
  • Setup meteobridge

Trying to automate this as much as possible, so that one could just download and go... (perhaps place it in some container/VM)

Anyhow time is little since becoming a parent  ;)

Thank you for you feedback!

Kind Regards
