Title: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 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

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

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 ....

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.

Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard PROJECT IS NO MORE
Post by: weather34 on July 17, 2016, 04:05:46 AM
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,

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.

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.

do you have a mind reader or some method of knowing things ? I'm sure that will happen but not from me I'm sure it will come out sometime (not from myself) this week but absolutely your are on the right track as the guy I'm speaking to often suggested this in the past.

hi

all versions will be available from there respective software developers sites and forums .

Client raw the developer of the software as agreed to distribute
Cumulus the developer of the software as agreed to distribute
WS1001 Larry has agreed to distribute and possibly you may have a github page for better management of changes/UPDATES/improvements and so on.

this is the best way to go as you can iron out errors or push ideas etc to the related to software/hardware there respective forums .

have fun , enjoy the hobby and many thanks to you all for the last few months .

i wish you good health and a prosperous future in whatever your doing ..

Let's start from there.  I have *NOT* modified them at all (yet).  I will probably branch my updates to support PostgreSQL, but that may be a few days.

Thanks Brian for letting me release it.

Paulo (forum user meteocaldas) was very kind to share that for Cumulus version.  Not sure if that would be the same for WD version.

good morning/afternoon/evening

i have addressed all issues raised and applied where I could or falls into the category where it benefits everyone across all versions . i really would love to add all the personal suggestions you make but some of those are specific to yourselves or your preferred requirement or look etc so please carry on it is your website etc and personal weather station.

WXSIM there is no easy way at the moment unless I create an alternative index.php to include it and it is dependent on user having wxsim but it will come some of you have already done your own
implementations and some are quite impressive.

so here is what i was able to do and some of these have been in the works for a sometime just needed polishing off in terms of visual output.
see the screenshots below , there is a brand new daylight hours script using d3.js i just applied specific css to retain the visual appearance and made some slight code changes to use php values

also now an alternative index.php currently named indexalt.php just rename it to index.php after removing the original or renaming the original(default).
what this does is based on I understand many do not live in an earthquake active fault zone unfortunately i do and have one some 30km from home and its quite active hence my inclusion of earthquake data however to benefit those who dont or have no interest i have added a individual daylight hours script to replace that for those not wanting earthquake data.it is a slimmed version of the moon.php info modal.see screenshots below.

other issues addressed listed below


15th August changes all versions now ver 5

1.updated daylight hours script now shows true minutes better code
2.brand new daylight hours visual display script built with d3.js
3.currentsky.php new scriot now shows offline if data not available or WU is down
4.livedata.php new code for current sky conditions
5.new css added to main.min.css
6.font awesome updated
7. adressed most issues raised
8.curl cronfiles updated
9.weather icons changes to color slight darker yellow #ff9350
10. weather display knots to kmh conversion added
11.fixed earthquake notification time alignment thanks Tina ..
12.New homepage alternative for those not interested in earthquakes you can now display Daylight hours using the the indexalt.php or just delete index.php or raname index.php and rename indexalt.php to index.php


VERY IMPORTANT requires full update now version 5 (20th August 2016)

Post by: weather34 on August 20, 2016, 05:26:05 AM
hello

all versions were updated August 20th addresses minor issues and fixes . in  version 5 (Aug 20th) version there are new display features in terms of daylight hours and sunrise/set outputs and better formula for moon phase and moon related data. new icons were added all weather icons were redesigned and download includes a PSD in appropriate layers for your own personal editing ..

please note there is no more development for the WS1001 clones template from Version 5 (that is the last one) from myself, this is now in the hands of Ironhorseman(Larry) at https://github.com/lrosenman/WS1001-Template/tree/PostgresDB  who has developed a version for using with PostgressDB.

display mod for WS1001 was stopped at firmware 2.2.5 nothing has been done for many months and was never tested with later versions of firmware .

going forward small updates to the template(s)will be issued in single files from this version on , reduces time to update , in most cases just a simple file replacement and not a full update.
however i would suggest to use the latest version 5 (aug 20th) to benefit for any future fixes,updates etc.

CUMULUS 5.0 (20TH Aug)
http://www.mediafire.com/download/lb7eia9zeqz5hlc/CUMULUS5LD.zip

cumulus demo dark version http://warehamwx.co.uk


CLIENTRAW 5.0 (20TH Aug)
http://www.mediafire.com/download/rhwt4314ka5hhyo/CLIENTRAW5LD.zip

clientraw demo light version http://www.paulwilman.com/wx.php

clientraw demo using WXSIM dark version http://www.meteosauwerd.nl/pws/


its been over a year now since I began this, I call it an adventure into the unknown world of weather templates but I think its done a full cycle and finally it is where it is today and I am more aware of requirements than a year ago.

something new on the horizon

major major change check the developer version http://weather34.com  and use the menu to see new options , change options on the fly ..


basically all versions , all units , all themes , in one template no more multiple versions , one template for all hardware,all software,all units etc .custom data update periods from 2 seconds to whatever you want to use ,set default theme,set default units etc , uses cookies to remember visitor preferences for 180 days ...
and whole lot of useful options .basically one template for cumulus,meteobridge,ws1001,weather display ...

will release later this week big big massive thanks to Eric Rechlin who spent his whole extended weekend break coding  .

just going to run it now for a few days  to try and catch any problems .


october will see a new GUI setup included to drive the settings.

november will have mysql option and new charts based charts.js

all good things will come to those that wait ... again try it out will be version 7(I think)

so here we go below is just a cut and paste from http://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/index.html

HOME WEATHER STATION web template is compatiable with Cumulus,Meteobridge ,Weather-Display-Software,Ambient WS1001
and many other weather station software /devices.
The new version ALL-4-ONE released September 2016 has been redesigned now all versions are built into one unique ALL-4-ONE version . ALL-4-ONE offers new menu system to change color theme from dark to light or vice-versa , the menu system now includes facility to change units displayed into various combinations to suit non metric , UK and scandinavian users .
New visual display for rainfall guage using a wave like appearance for rain recorded.New reconstructed css files offering a smaller size and clean code with attention made to appearance i.e. font-smoothing , overall this release offers an even better user/visitor experience because thats the most important aspect "good design is the one that communicates its function and behavior in such a clear and subtle way, that it will excel its purpose not confuse its audience"..Brian Underdown (Aug 2016)

ALL-4-ONE version allow you to make many personal preferences in the settings , this allows you to display your preferred choice of how you want the template to run . Options include choice of theme, choice of wind speed units displayed,setup notification alerts with your preference of what you would like to be notified of, setup data update intervals in seconds from 2 seconds to whatever your weather station updates at . Many other options to fine tune the template to your weather station and location . ALL-4-ONE has new daylight/night hours features including a relative realtime sun position movement .
Offers realtime data streamed from your weather station also includes weather conditions , forecast from Weather Underground (optional *WXSIM forecast data). Earthquake data provides localised regional data and worldwide significant earthquakes via a notification center alongside home page display.
This template was designed to display your weather station data and is compatiable with most browsers which support the -webkit- css . It is possibly compatiable with Internet Explorer or Edge but there is no support or guarantee.

What this template is not , it is not a template designed to scrape data from 100s of external sources it is primarily and was designed to use your own data generated by your weather station or your personal software based data, however generating forecast data is not always possible reliably by your hardware so therefore only 2 external data sources are used by default,Weather Underground & Earthquake-Report.com (*optional WXSIM forecast see http://www.meteosauwerd.nl/pws/).

It is designed with balance of functionality and useage therefore creating a somewhat pleasant user experience across all levels, be it from a curious enthusiast to the hardened enthusiast but remember its all about your weather data realtime nothing else . Original idea was put together using a designers dream piece of software called Sketch  app for MACOSX https://www.sketchapp.com/features/ .

Weather Display software users can get more benefits to use with this template, the developer Brian @WD has included cron job features adapted for the template and additional options for WS1001 users thus expanding the capability of that particular hardware.
Much of what is shown today has come from many enthusiasts ideas and knowledge and continous development ...Have fun its a hobby dont let it become anything else otherwise the fun and enjoyment dissapears..Brian Underdown (Aug 2016)

Hi Brian,
as I posted in the other forum, great job! Its great to see how much progress you have made with this since last year. It is only getting better and better and I hope you enjoy the holiday.

Now, I dont want to look picky, but since you´ve asked for feedback and I know very well that giving just praise is not very useful in terms of moving forward, I just looked at your site and there is one thing that I would maybe change. When I look at the box with the alerts, when I hover over it, the cursor changes to "hand", which usually means I should be able to click it to view something - and other boxes dont do this.
However, clicking it doesnt do anything, so maybe I would just change that to a standard arrow :-)

But please this is of course just total irrelevant small detail, otherwise it looks very good!

If I hover over the alert box (the one in the top row on the very right), the whole box has a hand cursor when hovering over it, but only some text in it actually triggers the popup. But everything in that box has a hand icon.

Now it shows for example

Minor earthquake - Central Turkey on September 9, 2016

And that text has a hand cursor too, although all you can do is select that text with the hand

GOOD DAY

thanks for all the emails overnight was quite surprised but I addressed them all and updated download to reflect everything sent along unfortunately some are personal preferences that I did not add to the general download as they not suit everyone.

1.fixed rain rate rounding now outputs to 2 decimal places i.e 0.21mm or in etc
2.fixed solar/uv trend data data rounding to 2 decimal places i.e 0.11 etc
3.fixed all temp trend data rounding to 2 decimal places i.e 0.25
4.added formula to calculate specifically for clientraw rain rate data output taken from clientraw.txt doesn't affect any other software or hardware.
5.applied changes to notification.php removed cursor:pointer , added better earthquake description data
6.changes to both main.dark.css and main.light.css
7.improved menu to allow users to add more of there own links without menu over-stretching out the screen
8.removed font-awesome from main dashboard all small icons are SVG
9.updated weather icons for better quality on dark theme (particularly the night icons and cloud icons) and better match to light theme
10.added option in settings.php
$rainrate           = '/m'; // set template output for rain rate measurement /m ,/h depends on your software/hardware output minute or hour.

11. fixed in settings.php as per thread on WXFORUM $weatherunderground = 'https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID='.$WUID.' ';
however its not in use by default was available in the earlier versions via the menu.si i will leave it in there if anyone still wants to add it back in.
12.updated rain.php to reflect rainrate measurement unit

That did it :-)

That sketch is nice :) It reminds me of Meteotemplate 0.9 Beta... :D I still have a copy on my HDD :D I might one day upload it from nostalgia for others to look at... I think very few people here actually remember it and used it :D

I recently read an article that was about exactly this topic, it showed some very popular services today and how they began :D For example that funny colorful 3D Google logo and a very simple search box below, or The Facebook back in times when it was (IMHO much better) only a service for messaging your friends and the wall, with no groups, feeds, games :D

Hi

Just wondering if anyone else has different Moon Set and Rise times, when compared with other sources?

ALLONE7 (Simplicity)
Moonrise: 15-09-2016 17:06   Moonset: 15-09-2016 05:38

And Saratoga Template has
Moonrise: 16:06 (15/09/2016)
Moonset: 05:15 (16/09/2016)

The moon set is same day I understand  but moon rise is 1 hour difference.

I have checked my TimeZone is correct and UTC offset is 10, in my settings.php file for the template.

TimeandDate.com has MoonSet at 5:20 tomorrow (which is pretty close to Saratoga)
and moonrise today of 16:06 (15/09/2016) which is exactly the same as Saratoga.

Any ideas?

The moon.php version is dated  september 4th 2016

hi

due to the unfortunate lack of historical data not available via weather underground currently , the template will now  or can use your mysql dbase to retrieve historical data for the charts . you can see a live version of that at tony's site http://hrvistaweather.com/pws/index.php . so in a few days hopefully be able to release this version with a reasonably good how to set up for mysql , however it can always roll back to WU historical data if it becomes available again or if you just want to use WU .

this will also be fully compatible with cumulus,weather display,ws1001,meteobridge hardware in due course . the next version of template release will be version "community" as all these additional ideas and features are contributions by members of various forums and non members so its only appropriate to reflect that and move it in that direction the more input and ideas can only be a good thing .

all contributors will be fully attributed .

due to the unfortunate lack of historical data not available via weather underground currently , the template will now  or can use your mysql dbase to retrieve historical data for the charts . you can see a live version of that at tony's site http://hrvistaweather.com/pws/index.php . so in a few days hopefully be able to release this version with a reasonably good how to set up for mysql , however it can always roll back to WU historical data if it becomes available again or if you just want to use WU .

this will also be fully compatible with cumulus,weather display,ws1001,meteobridge hardware in due course . the next version of template release will be version "community" as all these additional ideas and features are contributions by members of various forums and non members so its only appropriate to reflect that and move it in that direction the more input and ideas can only be a good thing .

all contributors will be fully attributed .

ALL4ONE (community)

Collaboration & Productivity = Better User Experience

brian

so far so good out of 6 betas two so far fully working with cumulus , now awaiting weather display results .

http://warehamwx.co.uk lastest using cumulus and mysql..

WS1001 clone ,Cumulus users now(almost finished)  you can use template with local database , just need to add the month and year scripts and then no more weather underground for historical data (still available as option) . should be all available next week .  cumulus option is done ws1001 option is done just need to work clientraw weather display option.

if you dont or do not wish to use a database it does not affect anything it will continue getting historical data from weather underground
live demo at http://weather34.com  or screenshot below

Hi Brian,

There is a problem with MySQL, if you are using a PHP version higher than 5.6, on your Web server does MySQL not work.
For versions higher than PHP 5.6 you should use MySQLI.
What content so that the WU graphs script should be modified to MySQLI.
But how, I do not know, am not a programmer.
I also uses on the Web server php version 7.0 and can not connect to my MySQL database.
There are two solutions for me, increase php to version 5.6 or to rewrite the php code in the script for WU grahps to MySQLI


Best regards,

Piet

Just started with the template a few weeks ago and am loving it so far!  I am working on shrinking down the dashboard to fit on a small screen (720x480) and am trying to combine the wind speed and direction panes so I can free up space to display data from another sensor (whole house power meter). I think this is a fundamental PHP/CSS question (I haven't coded a website since frames were in style). I moved the code from windirection.php into windspeed.php and I've looked at index.php, windspeed.php, and windirection.php and don't see where the placement of elements within the pane is defined.  I have this  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  and ultimately want something that looks more like this: [ You are not allowed to view attachments ] .

Thanks,

Matt

hi

it is not a problem however it will be released in that format sometime in October or early November currently no plans to release it or anything else until everything is done . so drop me an email i can help you out very quickly with some ready to go css and php files. see the screenshot of next release it is a half done where the moon information will move out of the current sky .

the moon data module can be replaced by anything you wish using the new blank module to allow custom data.

other things done is a new drag and drop the modules into your preferred position or visitor can choose and it remembered by the current cookie script for 180 days.
it will include a blank custom modules for those that want to add there own data choice be it web cam,radar and as you say an extra sensor .

there is a brand new chart display built with canvasJs you can see that working at http://weather34.com originally wanted to use d3.js but found this far more efficient and quicker on loading.

the new chart system really does take the WS1001 users to a new level and really making the WS1001 a really versatile weather internet machine . the charts update every 16-20 seconds in daily mode and every hour for monthly and year modes. the newer version also introduces daily max,averages,lows for the ws1001 users , for current cumulus,weather display this is already present .ws1001 users still do NOT need or required to run a computer 24/7, taking full advantage of using the updateweatherstation.php to drive the automation as it is polled by the ws1001 every 16 seconds ..

next version will have optional settings to choose between using weather underground history for chart data or mySql data and all charts will switch to according metric or non metric again you test that at http://weather34.com. note wxwugraphs are no longer used it is somewhat overkill and 10 times larger in comparison to using canvasJs.

all charts are built on canvasjS it is very lightweight compared to highcharts when displaying large amounts of historical data .
you can also import your weather underground historical data easily via phpMyadmin...

the drag and drop positioning feature is very smooth and quite pleasant to use on a touch screen tablet or devices and of course it fully compatiable with modern browsers on a desktop enviroment , it can be disabled if not required.


as for running at the screen resolution you mentioned would need to add specific css @media

you can adjust the current css file to trial and error to your requirements below the line

/* homeweatherstation beta css for mobile devices */
/* Tablet */
@media screen and (max-width: 768px)

drop me an email generally around most mornings ..

Brian, I have a question. I looked at canvasJS long time ago and I was also impressed by what it can do.

I also looked at D3, which can do amazing things, but as you probably have also discovered, it has relatively steep learning curve and it is definitely more work in terms of programming it and I also found it a bit more difficult to get right when trying to scale it etc.

In Meteotemplate I use Highcharts and only in few places I did use the D3 code and for the gauges some other scripts as well, but back to my original question.

The only reason I have never used canvasJS is that as far as I can see, there is no free license, only a 60-day free trial. The cheapest plan, i.e. the single developer license, for a webpage is 150 dollars.

http://canvasjs.com/license-canvasjs/

So my question is - does that mean that people using your template will now have to purchase this?

Or if I missed something and it is possible to use for free, please let me know because it would also help me and I would definitely use it, the only reason I didnt was the licensing thing.

Aha, I see, thanks for the link, so basically for non-commercial purposes you can use it, but it is some older version. I will see if it has some major advantages over Highcharts, which obviously can be used free in the most up-to-date version.

Hi Brian,
I have it at www.komokaweather.com/pws and looks good.

Only issue is that the stationcron fails and gives this message:
   Warning:  file_put_contents(../): failed to open stream: Is a directory in /home/content/96/5379896/html/pws/cronfiles/stationcron.php on line 29

even though that line is // $livedata           = '../pws/realtimePWS.txt'; //'realtime.txt // path to raw data.

The same message whether the line is // or not or whether it is removed.  Any suggestion what I can do?

Bi Brian,
Just checked my cron-job.org site and see that all the cron's have been working.  It appears that the warning is only when I manually run the URL .../pws/cronfiles/stationcron.php direct from the browser - which I do first whenever I upload a new version.  The forecastcron.php does not give a warning when run from browser.  HomeWeather is working fine!

Now to see what I can do about -
$dataSource  = 'wunderground'; // 'wunderground' = weather underground server, only change if you are using an additional source for chart data such as a local mysql database

Enjoying,
Paul

Upgraded here too but no month charts or day charts seem to work.

cronfiles have been run but do not know what is needed to create the files.

last version there were issues with Apache 5.6 and SSL connections which i fixed, but this version seems to use a new script to create the charts.

hi good evening

released a simple easy upgrade for community version although it significant . address all issues raised with new charts .

1.now total true switching of all units and in many combinations 
2.all values rounded down to 2 decimal places in tooltips
3.recompiled all chart files now even smaller load
4.have to reiterate note the new settings in settings.php

it is important to recognise the new settings in settings.php

this is critical new setting in settings.php though its just a case of true or false and choose your location

######################################################################################################
// THIS AREA IS VERY CRITICAL FOR CHART DISPLAY UNITS AND MUST BE CORRECT SET TRUE OR FALSE BASED ON GEOPGRAPHICAL NOT POLITICAL//
// WEATHER UNDERGROUND DELIVERS THIS DATA BASED ON SERVER LOCATION  only set one to TRUE //

$northamerica       = false;   // set to true if in NORTH AMERICA OUTSIDE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
$uk                 = false;  // set to true if in UNITED KINGDOM (MPH)
$usa                = false;  // set to true if in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
$europe             = false;  // set to true if in europe
$scandinavia        = false;  // set to true if in scandinaiva (m/s)
$restoftheworld     = true;  // set to true if in none of above

####################################################################################################

please replace settings.php and wuchart folder . incredibly the whole new wu charts system is less than 88kb !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks you for all the emails sorry i cant reply today to everyone but its all been noted and addressed.

Must have got an older version or something.

Redownloaded it and setup Settings again inclucing the new $uk setting. points it at realtime.txt and looked ok until i started looking at charts.

I still had no Months showing at all they are just blank. and Rain for today was showing 2.4mm nearly all day, yet it hasn't rained here the whole day so not sure where the data is being collected from.

Reverted back to last months ALL-IN-ONE and working fine now.

hi

you were seeing the demo data !!!!!!!!!  you need to run the cron jobs to update the charts with your data


Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template

Yes, I had run the cronjobs again and again and rain chart on main site is zero mm, but when I click on the Sun 2nd chart i get erroneous data.

see for yourself !!!!

yes if they are zero then good ol server config , you could go into stationcron /forecastcron and change the url to http se if that helps might help with other data like forecast etc ?

ive attached a non https cron files in a zip

Thanks, but that did not work either. looks like it just doesn create the data from wu into the CSV files for my setup.

JSON files are being populated with my data, but not imported into csv files

I'll revert back to last months one as I know that works.

Thanks for you help though.

GOOD MORNING

i addressed some things this morning particularly non metric you can simply try the fix(es) with the http://www.mediafire.com/file/sw0ry9222nhlvvp/COMMUNITYUPGRADE.zip

simply replace settings.php and chartswu folder

i tested this weather output in non metric from http://ws.nyweather.net/test files so hopefully it solve the issues .

StatenIslandWeather  try the upgrade zip i could see you were only having an issue with temperature charts which i change the conversion script in temperatures i couldnt see any other issues in other charts on your test site .

mattwx  application ? enlighten us.

next full release wont be until November probably late November due to mixture of home DIY and decorating with replacing one of our bathrooms , saved ourselves $1200 by doing it myself which seemed a good idea at the time, so if I don't get the bathroom done my wife will hang me by the balls from the ceiling .

so hang in there ..brian

hello
hmmm with the new release for me it does not work properly (no correspondence Units and more Graphs)  #-o

think you all fixed your server doesnt like the relative path ./ code   

http://seremange-meteolive.franceserv.com/pws/index.php


so should be ok now with units switching and chart display so i basically hardcoded the links with url structure of your server.

have fun..

My charts are blank after the latest update (downloaded around 23:00 EST)

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

I'm sure I missed something in settings.php but I couldn't see anything obvious. I tried setting the location to usa, northamerica, and uk but all resulted in the same blank chart. With the version I installed yesterday, the charts worked fine (but with wrong units) with northamerica set to true but were blank with usa set to true.

Hi good morning

firstly massive big thank you to the following for yesterdays bug fest with the charts , it was a new system that needed some input and feedback and finally last night seemed to
iron out the issues raised .worst one was the single missing colon (;),something so small yet critical as some installations on some servers refused to work without it .

William,Piet,Paul W,Paul G,Hans,Atsio,Gert,Antoine,Luca,Chris W,Chris D,Damien,Ella.. if i missed anyone im sorry .

this morning i have re packaged everything no longer going to issue a small upgrade packaged it proved more problematic than the original upgrade path of doing a full installation however it should not take any more than 10 minutes if you have been a regular user .

i have added a new conversion file called conversion.php which resides in the chartswu folder this basically drives the conversions when switching units with in the template via the menu . i have also included rain rate in the daily rain chart .

it is critical to study the settings.php i found yesterday most were setting two lines as true this completely confuses the conversion script

for example
$northamerica       = false;   // set to true if in NORTH AMERICA OUTSIDE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA                            
$uk                 = true;  // set to true if in UNITED KINGDOM (MPH)                                                
$usa                = false;  // set to true if in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA                                           
$scandinavia        = false;  // set to true if in scandinaiva (m/s)                                                 
$restoftheworld     = true;   // set to true if in none of above      

only one line should be set to true

$northamerica       = false;   // set to true if in NORTH AMERICA OUTSIDE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA                            
$uk                 =false;  // set to true if in UNITED KINGDOM (MPH)                                                
$usa                = false;  // set to true if in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA                                           
$scandinavia        = false;  // set to true if in scandinaiva (m/s)                                                 
$restoftheworld     = true;   // set to true if in none of above

i have absolutely no plans to do anymore for at least a month, i have a personal DIY bathroom to start and finish.

you can get the release ALL4ONE(canvas) at http://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

again many many thanks for all the feedback...

Hi Brian.

I am still unable to create the graphs from the data, i am guessing it is some permission issues with my NAS which is my Webserver.

so I was thinking of using MySql Database instead, however I noticed the settings mentions the following.

Quote
//only if using for database add your login details
//$db_host = "localhost"; // always local host

so I cannot use my Weather Stations Cumulus DB unless is on the Webserver that this Template is located on? is this correct? can I not use my WX Host IP address instead?

you can use what ever database you want as long as the configuration file can see it , FYI this is all developed on a local server (2 machines now one is a dedicated server one is xampp on a mac mini both running php 5.6 optional 7 so i cant understand why you have the permission issue , i have no special configuration .

do me a favour drop me an email i have a stand alone version of the new charts that doesnt use a cron job it simply pulls the info direct from WU  .

it has its own settings file which is very simple see below .it also works with the unit switching from the template but ideally its purpose is going to be a stand alone package to use with any template or if your building your own design as it is self sufficient and does not rely on any other configuration files

Title: NEW ALTERNATIVE HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 on October 13, 2016, 07:22:28 AM
Note this is only if you wish to take advantage of newer features if you are happy with existing setup then it is not important to change to this version.

New enhancements for WS1001 users and a universal new indexnew.php
to use combined windspeed and direction, new moon-phase appearance and current sky conditions on
main page. use menu to switch


(http://boutiquehotelitaly.net/images/switch1.jpg)


If you wish to use alternative layout as main appearance just rename indexnew.php to
index.php and save original index.php as something else for later use or reverting back.
you will have to change the menu to reflect new filename.

this package requires full upgrade there is no shortcut please install without any traces of previous
versions , if you take the shortcut route it will not work properly .
simply remove existing template from your server and fully replace all files.

it is not always necessary to upgrade each time if you are happy with your current setup.

1.NEW alternative main page use menu to switch layout choice
2.NEW folder CREATEDATABASE for WS1001 users to use database data for realtime HIGHS/LOWS/AVERAGES
3.NEW current conditions with 3 hour forecast displayed
4.NEW moonphase display for main page
5.NEW notification center for earthquake data regional and significant
6.make sure your database login details are correct in settings.php nothing will work properly until it is correct.
7.run createdatabase.php first
8.run import.php when successfully created database
9.WS1001 USERS updateweatherstation.php will do all the rest of the work updating database every 16 seconds
10.NEW run extra WS1001 only cron job at midnight your server time to trunctuate(clear down and create a new for new day) database at end of day. important


critical new database settings for WS1001 users in settings.php please check thoroughly …

please read the setup.rtf enclosed in the zip file download.

version ALL4ONE(canvas alternative)

good morning

after I run your two cron files you should now see the charts populated for year/month/day ok

however i think you need to check or add the correct api key as the forecast and current sky are not showing data .

settings.php

$api= 'xxx'; // important Weather Underground api key developer key '1234567890'
$api2= 'xxx'; // optional Weather Underground api key developer key '1234567890'

weather.json shows (used for current sky)


{
  "response": {
  "version":"0.1",
  "termsofService":"http://www.wunderground.com/weather/api/d/terms.html",
  "features": {
  }
      ,
   "error": {
      "type": "keynotfound"
      ,"description": "this key does not exist"
   }
   }
}

forecast10day.json shows (used for forecast data)


{
  "response": {
  "version":"0.1",
  "termsofService":"http://www.wunderground.com/weather/api/d/terms.html",
  "features": {
  }
      ,

you need to run two cronfiles i tested them through the browser and your server config is perfect for cron jobs . check your site now .

your/cronfiles/stationcron.php  15 minute intervals
your/cronfiles/forecastcron.php 60 minute intervals

do you have a cpanel provided by your host ?

if you need help please pm your login in details or create temporary login . only takes a minute .

Sorry but I don't think I get this - who is developing the Dashboard template? Some time ago I saw a message that Brian was going to leave the template and pass over to a hand-full of people?

Are the numerous version "out there" or just one version that Brian is taking about above?

Hello. New here and first post...

I have an Aercus WeatherRanger WIFI PWS that feeds Wunderground.  Is it possible to configure the data source for this template as the wunderground api for current observations as well as forecast?

I'm asking because I haven't found a way to intercept the data from the PWS as it's sent over wifi and not through a logger.

I've tried configuring the settings to how I think it should be but I just get the forecast data.

Thank you for any advice.

Hi All & Brian,

I had my setup all working and as you do you play around! However I cant find the initial setup instructions for the ws1001 server.ini and the json bit on the server. ie where the folders need to go and what they are called.

I'm using an old template at weatherincornwall.com but i'm not getting any data to it any more so need the info to check my setting against the correct settings.

Thanks in advance

if you dont mind ill answer last 3 in one .

1. droiddk: 3 months ago the situation here in istanbul was getting awful , numerous suicide bombings on one occassion stood at the point at the airport some 3 hours earlier , another occasion wife was 5 minutes away with a group of visitors from a another suicide bomb in the city.

then we had the attempted coup , F16s flying over us all night , bomb explosions in the distance amongst all that was total confusion as it unfolded it didnt makes sense and was not supported in any way by the turkish people but the aftermath was a lot of uncertainty because of the unknown. for a few weeks our future here was uncertain but has the weeks passed the initial shock had weakened and life started to return to normal , we started to feel safe again and able to go about our daily life as normal up to that point there was a lot of uncertainty about in the air , you could literally feel the tense atmosphere everywhere.
so touch wood we have passed that point of uncertainty but remain vigilant and cautious . having the normality has allowed me to carry on and push the template into a better user experience and apply different ideas from others like the new switching of units and theme etc(from Eric). so what you see above is current and no foreseeable major release until late november as currently preoccupied with something else. hope that clarifies things and i totally understand the frustration its the same for us but the events that happened were beyond my control and they really turn your life and thinking upside down and thankfully today life is normal but its never far away from our minds as only yesterday rocket launchers were fired into a popular tourist region.

2.brushwood69  drop me an email nothing changed and the current download as all the necessary files to use with the ws1001 but now you will need a database setup to take advantage of some extra features for the WS1001.

3.cojones  it was originally that way the template way back in august 2015 was using the weather underground api to display the data .drop me an email somewhere in my back up drive i have the original scripts i used, but i cant offer anything else to work with current template design just to preoccupied but happy to send you along what i have if that is of any help.

Brian,

Is the new alternative template only for WS1001 users? I use WD/clientraw and am getting this error:

Code: [Select]
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pws\livedata.php:8 Stack trace: #0 C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pws\index.php(1): include() #1 {main} thrown in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pws\livedata.php on line 8
I commented out the mysql user/pass/etc settings from settings.php but also tried supplying valid credentials to mysql.  Am I missing a file that defines the mysql_connect() function?

Thanks,

Matt

Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: Jáchym on October 15, 2016, 11:57:39 AM
Hi Matt,

hope Brian doesnt mind if I answer.

The mysql_connect is a function that should be built-in PHP, so you should not need to "include it". However this is slightly outdated, the function that is used these days is MySQLi instead. Either way, based on what you said, it looks like you do not want to use MySQL at all.

The function you specified is one trying to connect to database. Even if you replaced it with one that works on your server (assuming it is MySQLi), it would not work unless you provide the details for connecting to the database.

You must find the line which tries to connect to the db and comment that out too if you do not want to use MySQL at all.

If you do and mysql_connect does not work, I recommend using MySQLi, it stands for "improved MySQL" and it is today´s standard. MySQL is outdated.

However, I am not sure if that is what Brian used because if you use MySQLi to connect to the db, then you would also have to change all the other mySQL commands that use MySQL to MySQLi syntax.

I'd started a post edit hours ago to say I did some digging and saw that mysql_connect is no longer part of php but got sidetracked. Thanks for the advice, I went in and commented out the sql related lines at the top of livedata.php and things seem to be working well.

SORRY MY MISTAKE LAST NIGHT have separated the versions correctly . the ws1001 database is for ws1001 stand alone users only,
 if you are using the weather display software to send data then the standard version is all you need not the ws1001 .so my sincere apologies for the confusion.

as for mysqli currently i have not enabled the extension on my recently home built server hence the mysql code and i still need to install php 7 on it .
running also mysqli on a mac min  with PHP 7 so the option is there locally to work with . however the version i use on weather34.com site uses mysqli

 // THIS DATABASE OPTION AT PRESENT IS ONLY FOR WS1001 USERS //
   
    $conn = mysqli_connect($db_host,$db_user,$db_pass,$db_name);
   // Max temperature ws1001 only
   $result  = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT MAX(outsideTemp) FROM weatherstation");
   $maxtemp = mysqli_fetch_array($result);   
      // Min TEMPERATURE ws1001
   $result1 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT MIN(outsideTemp) FROM weatherstation");
   $mintemp = mysqli_fetch_array($result1);   
   // Max Windspeed ws1001
   $result2 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT MAX(windSpeed) FROM weatherstation");
   $maxwind = mysqli_fetch_array($result2);   
   // Average Windspeed ws1001
   $result3 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT AVG(windSpeed) FROM weatherstation");
    $avgwind = mysqli_fetch_array($result3);
   // Average Windsgust ws1001
   $result4 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT AVG(windGustmph) FROM weatherstation");
    $avggust = mysqli_fetch_array($result4);         
   // Max Windgust   ws1001
   $result5 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT MAX(windgustmph) FROM weatherstation");
    $maxgust = mysqli_fetch_array($result5);
   // Max Barometer ws1001
   $result6 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT MAX(barometer) FROM weatherstation");
    $maxpressure = mysqli_fetch_array($result6);   
   // Max Radiation ws1001
   $result7 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT MAX(radiation) FROM weatherstation");
    $maxsolar = mysqli_fetch_array($result7);   
   // Average Direction ws1001
   $result8 = mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT AVG(direction) FROM weatherstation");
    $avgdir = mysqli_fetch_array($result8);   

hopefully when all is good and stable in terms of database usage across all software/hardware the dbase option for all software types will be released and include above . time is not on my side the moment but it will come .

drag and option hmmm having second thoughts as I kind of vision some user experience problems . i personally love it but i can see people getting frustrated on non touch screen
devices , it works well on a desktop but it so easy to move the mouse across a module a pick it up and move unexpectedly so I am looking at a script from https://jqueryui.com/draggable/ to position the pick up point in the bottom right hand corner of module and hold down mouse only to fire the drag and drop when on desktop.

thanks for response.

Hi Brian,
just a little reaction to your previous post :-) I have also considered using drag/drop for the block setup, it seems sort of natural to do that. It turned out non-feasable in my case for several reasons. The primary reason is that in my case it is much more complicated because the blocks can be "multiple blocks" - (more than one merged together), "menu blocks" - dynamically loading different blocks in one spot etc.
But also, I have discovered the exact same problem as you. First of all, it is still not that easy to implement this, and second, I did found problems with how this thing behaves across different platforms/browsers. It usually does "something" but not always what you want it to do.
In the end I came to the conclusion that it is impossible to do, at least in my case, though as I said, in your case it would probably be a bit simpler because you are dragging simple divs with relatively defined layout.

The draggable function is quite cool. I use that for my graphs, currently only in one plugin, but I will include it in other pages as well. It solves one of the problems I always had.... how high should I make the graph.... in Highcharts, the div must have a specific height. The problem is that some people want it higher to see more details, while others want it smaller, less details, but also less scrolling. In the end I used the jQuery drag to place a little dragging icon in the bottom right corner and you can resize it and the graph resizes correspondingly.

And that actually works quite well and jQuery guarantees compatibility across all platforms. I myself tested it with Chrome, FF, Opera, Safari and the default Android browser. It works correctly and as wanted in all so it is safe to use.

Looking forward to your new improvements :-)

Hello. New here and first post...

I have an Aercus WeatherRanger WIFI PWS that feeds Wunderground.  Is it possible to configure the data source for this template as the wunderground api for current observations as well as forecast?

I'm asking because I haven't found a way to intercept the data from the PWS as it's sent over wifi and not through a logger.

I've tried configuring the settings to how I think it should be but I just get the forecast data.

Thank you for any advice.

Coj

this is the only one i could find was dated back to June 2015 al you need to do is configure the settings.php but beware its limited by the api calls per day
all i did was replace the icons with the new ones apart from that it works still but interesting to look back at that attempt.

<?php
$api ='xxxxxxx'; // weather underground api key
$id ='ISTANBUL161'; // weather underground station id
$lat = '41.001';
$lon = '28.543';
$tz = 'Europe/Istanbul';

?>

I could see the benefit of drag and drop to initially setup the site and then locked down for visitors--but that's just because my web development skills are still stuck in 1999.

In the CSS file, it should work if you replace the margin-left with auto margin, like this:

@media screen and (max-width: 768px)
.weather-item {
margin-left: 1px

change to
@media screen and (max-width: 768px)
.weather-item {
margin: 0 auto

At least this works in the browser and I think it should work on a phone too

Post by: Jáchym on October 19, 2016, 01:27:25 PM
When I look at your site, it still has that margin-left:0px, it is either in some other CSS file that overrides it, or it is hardcoded directly in that container properties

Steven

good morning steven

in settings.php simple adjustment to calculate offset of utc for script

$UTC = '3';  // NUMBER of hours betweeen your location and UTC ,EXAMPLE new york -4 london 0 istanbul 3

its just an extra i added the simple jquery script is based on UTC so not using php timezone .probably have to adjust when the clocks change .

your lucky or not here in Turkey we no longer change times same all year round from this year onwards.

New icons updated for flurries,sleet and night time icons, icons are available via new area http://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/websiteicons/weathericons.html

the download includes PSD/SVG/PNG files currently they are currently named for weather underground forecast/current api service however you can adapt to other services just by renaming the icons to the appropriate name required by the service.

main template simple update for standard version only

the simple update zip file was updated with new contact form includes captcha security and many thanks to Piet http://www.weerstation-sauwerd.nl over the weekend for testing and eliminating the server config issue of session_start(),
contactform uses existing email set in the settings.php so there is nothing to configure if you have set $email = "something@dot.com"

Replenishment

Replace in the folder contactform in the file contactform.php rule 109 by the following rule

<div style="font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size:16px; float:left; width:500px;" align="left"> <span style="color:#f26c4f;font-weight:normal;font-size:16px;"> <?php echo "$stationName \n"; ?> - </span> <span style="color:#00A4B4;">Contact Form   

Then get you your own weaterstation name

See print screen


Furthermore you can in the same folder in the file index.php rule 20 still change on this way

$email_subject     = "Email recieved from  put here your own weather station name"; 

Then you can see what weather station the mail comes from.
Easy if you have several weather sites with its own email address

But first make a backup before you make the changes

I think the graphics part is the best in the template word but it's only one page :(
Is it possible to aggregate other pages to make a portal with some weather data?

I would use this template to make all these pages: www.meteocarmignano.it  except index page naturally.

Is it possible?
Thank you so much.

Hi,
i'm very interested to this template.
I think the graphics part is the best in the template word but it's only one page :(
Is it possible to aggregate other pages to make a portal with some weather data?

I would use this template to make all these pages: www.meteocarmignano.it  except index page naturally.

Is it possible?
Thank you so much.
Regards,

P. S.
Now in test here: http://nuovosito.meteocarmignano.it

 i think i understand

you can adapt the template to a personal liking however it was designed as a dashboard though you can create a duplicate
layout(index?.php) and just replace module areas with what ever data you wish to use . need some experience in flexbox css and general php coding if you have that then no restrictions just down to your imagination.

have a nice day.

thanks to all the contributors over the last two weeks and glad to say we came up with a relatively good solution that will allow future updates and improvements without too much coding.
you can now download the UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE VERSION  at http://weather34.com/homeweatherstation 

there was also minor update to the standard version

the translations are ongoing and only require a simple file replacement to update each time so be patient with us not all translators are weather enthusiasts some of the translators
are local friends here and myself being a foreigner living here in Istanbul the expat community is a small community where we get to meet many people from all over the world. most interesting translation
will be S.Korean by a student for his project no idea how that will turn out.

More goodness and something simply new to make even better user experience..
sometime this month also I will release something that was put back for some time due to focusing on other ideas . the next release mid November will have a
HOMEWEATHERSTATION EASYSETUP SCREEN . see screenshot below  . basically setup once and forget no more confusing mass of lines to edit .the easy setup panel has the necessary options to have it all up and running in minutes. click and forget . currently being beta tested but not expecting any issues as it was done months ago just needed some css styling. I am away for one week for a week without computers just a phone ,sand and sea and mountains..so don't worry if I don't respond to any emails or pm I will when I get back.

Hi Brian,
just a question, I know you said the translations are not complete, but I looked at the Czech version and please dont get annoyed, but it is awful and I don't believe this was done by a Czech. If I disregard the fact 80% of the strings are untranslated, even the ones that are are usually wrong, in two-word phrases only one is translated etc. Was this really done by a Czech person? The problem is that you even have a Czech flag in the languages on the main screen, but this is totally unusable (eg. wind direction translated as wind etc.). Some of the translations are funny, like "Full Moon" - we have a special word for it, but it was translated literally as "full moon", "daylight" translated as "game with light" etc. and someone who does not speak Czech cant spot this and they might include it in their template.

I dont want to be critical, you have done a great job with your template, but this seems to me a bit like half-baked product. I would wait until the languages are translated before including them in the download file.

One more thing.... I dont like people who criticize without saying what is the right way of doing things :-)

Attached is a translated CZ file. If you want you can use it.

Keep up the good work.

P.S.
Only thing I dont understand is this:

Code: [Select]
$lang['Falling'] = 'Klesající';
$lang['Rising'] = 'Stoupající';
$lang['Steady'] = 'Stabilní';
$lang['Rapidly'] = 'Rychle';
$lang['Temp'] = 'Temp';

What is "Temp" in the context of trends?

And the Universal version http://www.komokaweather.com/pws-ul/index.php?lang=en (not updating the cron files for this as yet so WU info will become stale)

No issue with the template Brian, it is just something in my system that gives that warning (also periodically in the Saratoga template and other scripts).

You are welcome, just if you could check that last trend string, either it shouldnt be there, or it should be something different or if it is supposed to be there then you should maybe explain it in a comment because others are probably not going to understand either what you mean by "Temp" in the context of trends and the words above it.

Paul,
try finding the corresponding line in the code and then paste somewhere in that file this:

Code: [Select]
function curlMain($url){
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 10);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT,"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0");
$data = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
return $data;
}

And then replace the file_get_contents with curlMain

like this:
file_get_contents("http://www.....");

to

curlMain("http://www.....");

Can someone tell me if this great work will function with the Froggit HP1003 console display?

This is a non-wifi clone of the Fine Offset HP1003. I would purchase from Germany and the transmission frequency is 868MHz.

The fact that it is not wifi enabled makes me wonder if it really qualifies as a WS-1001 clone.

Would be very nice if I could use this, as the display modification makes it much more attractive than the stock offering.

Best,

Hello

yes there different ways of doing it , simply using the cam.php in version 34E you can replace any existing module
or you can use a second page accessible via the menu as see in the screenshots below using the optional second page , this optional page simply allows you build another page with using additional data from other sources . these are customised by the individuals so a bit of PHP knowledge is required but nothing to complex.

you can customise it to your imagination , or if you need more help in a particular area just drop a pm , don't know where you are from but Im in Istanbul,turkey so sometimes the responses may be delayed due to time differences.

 its not recommended to load up external resources on the main page it will have a massive impact on loading performance so try to keep the main page of the dashboard to using only data served from your server .

The currentwuconditions.php had the update in seconds not minutes !! i.e 10 seconds it has now been adjusted to read 900 seconds = 15 minutes. Unfortunately and very sorry this may have caused you to get an a warning from weather undergound of exceeding api limit .This was only present in the non cron job version 34E .PLEASE UPDATE ASAP SORRY FOR ANY INCONVIENCE CAUSED.

Hello Good evening

this is purely optional and not a part of the dashboard template it is a part of the information download page.

you can now receive update notifications direct to your desktop using the push notification system if your OS supports it and permits .
Note it is purely optional and can be disabled or terminated when ever you wish .

This will help me push out the updates without having to post in all the forums and solely use the forums for resolving issues and exchanging ideas, I find that more constructive and
beneficial .

The notification is only received once is not repeated , i have used this system in another project and it can be really beneficial and not annoying if used right.

It will be only used for update notifications to template and I really hope I am nearing the end of releasing frequent updates as it is now been a long time in trying to
find the right balance for everyone , every language etc.

PLEASE NOTE IT IS PURELY OPTIONAL AND DOES NOT REPEAT THE NOTIFICATION EACH TIME YOU VISIT THE SITE IT WILL ONLY SHOW YOU A NEW NOTIFICATION ONCE IF AVAILABLE .

It is via one page https://www.weather34.com/homeweatherstation/index.html so it is not added to all pages on the domain weather34.com ,once you grant permission it will push notifications to your browser or OS you do not have to be at the page https://www.weather34.com/homeweatherstation/index.html to receive a notification.

It is compatible Firefox,Chrome and Safari once I had the apple developer certificate due to restrictions imposed by Apple for IOS and OSX .

The service is available and provided by pushprime.com for free or paid , others may find it of value for there own projects.

HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template updated
https://www.weather34.com/homeweatherstation/index.html

demo http://boutiquehotelitaly.com/devpws/

Updates (25-Mar-2017)
  - Improved WS1001 only trend calculations for barometer(every 3 hours) others (temp,wind,solar 15 minutes)
  - IMPORTANT changes to code to support upcoming PHP 7.2 , template now compatiable from PHP 5.4 to 7.2
  - German language updated by Stefan Griessner
  - Dropped support for Cron Job version , non cron job popularity far outweighs and proving the popular choice since release
(Non cron job version 1483 downloads compared to 144 downloads of cron job version since releasing the non crob job version).



Updates (24-Mar-2017)
  - Added weather station online/offline indications (simple checks if software/hardware generated file is older than five minutes)
  - IMPORTANT changes to code to support upcoming PHP 7.2 , template now compatiable from PHP 5.4 to 7.2
  - Portuguese and Brazilians language updated
  - Languages now have English and USA flag options
  - Menu.php is where the languages reside , so easier to remove for those not wanting to use or display languages.

some open answers to questions received:
1. why do you not use google fonts ?
answer: I live in a country where services like google,social media etc get frequently shut down without warning for periods. three years ago I worked for a company who had really started to use various google services, like calendar,docs,drive,mail as a working tool internally. We sat there dumbfounded for three days not being able to use our email,online docs etc it was lesson learnt about using cloud services with out a contingency plan . these outages happen at ISP level so if I added google fonts to template and we START experiencing google blockages then there is a bottle neck albeit using a fallback css line will help but I dont design using google fonts.
ITS ANOTHER REASON I DONT FOCUS ON EXTERNAL RESOURCES weather resources, jquery CDN etc , they are fine when all is working well but need to have fallback scripts when things are not so good. apart from weather underground and earthquake-report.com are the only two external dependancies .


2.is HTTPS really important do I really need it..
answer YES going forward you will reap the benefits in many ways ,right NOW the importance and benefits are not so apparent but watch
for many future benefits , doing a useful google research search you will discover many future benefits that are not so obvious right now . ignore the skeptics

3.apps IOS
I hit a brickwall or 2 , resolving languages is giving me a headache , need to renew $99 a year developer membership , debating whether it is worth doing just to release a free app .undecided on this but not given up..

4.Paid IOS app on apple app store
I am not associated in anyway with this app or had any contact with the developer(does not respond to emails) they just used the icons from an old download version and added a credit to weather34.com,however it is a paid app which bugs me ! and if they eventually respond to the emails I will suggest they give a donation to a charity for fair usage of ICONS !!

good evening

the template was updated with enhancements,changes,additions,minor fixes listed below. if none of these changes appeal to you or you are quite happy with current version then stay with what you have , if you just want the languages updated then just replace language folder with new one .

https://www.weather34.com/homeweatherstation/index.html

Updates Full Install required(31-Mar-2017)
  - Meteobridge users can now select which type of method they use , either via the Saratoga template method or Meteobridge direct method. Also big thank you to Vojta from Czech Republic for his assistance in ironing some teething issues with the meteobridge-direct output.
  - Czech language updated and some words abbreviated due to length of words in Czech language ,thanks to Vojta
  - A week of adding additional performance tweaks to many areas of the template , I cant emphasize enough goto https://gtmetrix.com and do some tests . Anyone who quotes there is no benefit or it is not possible is ignoring the benefits for other reasons. This template is optimized based on everything from the results . PS i dont use gzip and I still get 93% performance rating simply I have studied every possible enhancement and enhanced the code accordlingly.If you would like to know more please get in touch.Please note all possible enhancements have been made to template areas , other enhancements like .htaccess enhancements are NOT distributed in download.
  - Notification center now has UV-INDEX alert
  - Solar and UV-INDEX now show darkeness hours after sunset to sunrise based on calculation so its important to get your lat lon correct.
  - Further code changes to support upcoming PHP 7.2 .
  - New options added to easyweathersetup.php related to meteobridge-direct,main clock format. This update requires a new installation due to many files almost all php files having new additional code ,performance enhancements or removed code. Please do not mix with older versions and note the template no longer uses cron jobs or json files .

Hi Brian,
I just posted about PageSpeed this afternoon. On one hand these are really useful tools, on the other hand, they often give unusable advice. They are more like general guidelines. They give you list of things you should check and then decide yourself if this is what you want, something you forgot to do, or if it is intentionally done the way it is.

Just two examples, I tried my site. It got 85. And I looked at what it wanted me to do, here are just two examples:
1. it told me that the radar image is resized to a smaller size by CSS and that I should therefore resize the image directly. This is only half true. The problem is that it does not take into account the fact that the image does not have a fixed size, I use percentages for everything. Because I placed the image into a narrower column, it is resized to fit this column. However, a person with higher screen resolution or a person who places the block into a wider column, will see the image in its original size. If I resized it based on the suggestion of this script, for this person, it would be pixelated and lose the detail.

2. it didnt like some of the JS files, saying I should minify them or defer loading. This again is only sometimes applicable. I use some scripts from external sources and also, for example, for the jQuery script in particular (the one for which it marked me down the most), I use the most widely used CDN and so majority of users will already have this file cached in their computer given how widespread jQuery is. So they are loading 0kb. If I optimized it and placed it on my server, they will be loading it.

It is always wise to check these tools, but then you have to go through the results and not just follow blindly what it tells you to do - Im not suggesting you are doing this of course, but I know that some people might be tempted to think this is like a 100% correct and optimal way of doing things.

Post by: weather34 on April 13, 2017, 03:33:53 AM
Good morning

more continuous strive to create the ideal user experience ,over the last week added and removed code to really make the use of the template a good user experience. you can see from the results below how with some patience and time you can achieve results . sometimes the smallest piece of code can have a surprising reasonable outcome.in this case simply DEFER scripts where ever possible has be done using <script DEFER type="text/livescript">
its that simple yet so effective see below .
all inline styles have been stripped out from the index.php(main page) again the results reflect it was worth while doing.

IOS app as pointed out by Andrea whats the point wasting your time when the template works as an app when you simply use the in built IOS add to homescreen. so simple code was added on it will simply remove the browser bar and create a icon on your home screen for iPhone/iPad .note only when you access via the homescreen icon will not display the browser bar .IOS does NOT permit the devices to use fullscreen since IOS8.
meta name="mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"
meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"
meta name=apple-mobile-web-app-title content="HOMEWEATHERSTATION"

and she is totally right as i sat here trying to justify the renewal of the apple developer account..sometimes you just as well keep it simple and move on..

WeatherFlow quite looking forward to this has I really want to later in the year start to work out and start implementing optional HOME AUTOMATION features ,having spent the last two years doing energy saving on our home and we are reaping the benefit considerably in terms electricity,gas,heating costs.

available at https://www.weather34.com/homeweatherstation/index.html

Update/Performance/date-time feature/minor fixes (13 APRIL 2017)
  - index.php/indexearthquake.php performance changes removed all css styles inline,defer scripts for more improved performance,removed unused code, all js files reside at the foot of template.

  - US non-metric rainfall charts adjusted to 10th of an inch ref:Michael relayweather.com

  - moon.php added date and time elements ref:Brycen (Boston..US). also better accurate code for darkness to daylight and vice versa

  - CSS files stripped out unused code and minified to smallest file size

  - New option added to easyweathersetup.php to turn off languages display (index.php gets a big performance boost when turned off)

  - New code added to menu.php to cater for switching off languages


  - IOS(Apple tablet/mobile devices) simple web to app via add to homescreen added

meta name="mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"
meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"
meta name=apple-mobile-web-app-title content="HOMEWEATHERSTATION"

  - solar.php/solar2.php updated with better accurate code for darkness to daylight and vice versa

  - WeatherFlow hardware basic preparation for upcoming API (expected test unit to arrive mid april 18th onwards)

Hi -- I need to move my HOMEWEATHERSTATION dashboard template to a new server.  What's the best work flow?

1-Install new version on new server, copy settings1.php, menu.php, and chartswudata directory contents from old server?

--Or--

2-Copy the entire contents of the pws directory from the old server to the new server, then upgrade to the latest version?

BTW, where's the historical data kept?  I figured that the chartswudata directory has most of it, but are there other places? jsondata?

I don't plan to move servers very often, but I don't want to lose the data I've accumulated so far.

Thanks
Jack

Thanks Brian, and it has always been a simple but impressive template and matured very well.  My oldest version that I still have in an old backup is 2015-10-09.  I've enjoyed the progress and learned along the way.  And it does show up quite well on my Galaxy S7 http://www.komokaweather.com/pws

Hello Brian, I was wondering if you check this regarding the rain graph comparison, I want to confirm from you if your conversion in rain rate is really based on your own formula? because when I check from their graphs even to WU, are all of rain rates are the same in millimeters except yours so maybe you could check it (see the attachment) and maybe you enlighten me for the conversion in your graphs. Thanks.

hello

sorry cant help you much looking at the template all the conversions have been removed from the menu so no idea what the actual configuration is set to .

also all your data is stored in non metric http://pimohweather.webutu.com/pimohweather/chartswudata/2017.csv

so could be a number of different things but impossible to diagnose without access to the easyweathersetup.

sorry not much help to you ..good luck

Oh my bad, I didnt change the units in easyweather setup, it was set to "English" , now I set it correctly and the right rain rate shown this time. thanks for pointing me that out.

For those of you with MeteoBridge as the source, I found some errors in an earlier upload configuration I had found somewhere. It may have been corrected after I found it, but just in case, here is my latest that seems to work. Brian, the maintainer of the template does not really want to support MeteoBridge beyond what is there right now, which is why I am publishing it.

Post by: weather34 on May 16, 2017, 04:56:54 PM
hello

as i said in the email thanks for your observations ! however let me clarify and explain you may understand why that the meteobridge-direct option within the template will be removed sooner or later.

some time ago the developer of meteobridge offered to include the option within meteobridge itself , this would make life easier and a more user friendlier way of using the option. currently having to cut and paste a mass of code is prone to error as each week i get an email of some sort and it always boils down to the cut paste of the code into meteobridge itself.

I don't own a meteobridge the solution in use was created kindly by WIM of leuvent template some time ago , in testing everything worked fine however what began to happen is users would try to use a variant of the long code and this began to throw up errors within the template and incorrect values started to appear . if the original long code supplied by WIM was used no problems arose, i still use that output to file as a test to try and replicate issues.

Now some many weeks later exactly i dont know I have only had one email/pm from the developer of meteobridge asking for a homeweatherstation logo image . Thats it thats all I have heard , i even saw a thread started on the meteohub forum which i contributed to once I was able to work my way through the endless spam messages on their forum about adidas,nike etc.. but as of today I have heard nothing more and in its current state its not really and ideal solution as it is nigh on impossible for me to help or support when problems arise.

I have said before a product like meteobridge would never get through customs without charges,translated documents,import duty and so on..so meteobridge is not something I am ever likely to own and be able offer any hands on user experience support. I think even if i was to bring one back from europe as personal luggage item it would be jumped on at re-entry due to the current security measures in place.

Also meteobridge recent changes to there licence conditions in terms of paid support this makes it all sort of not worthwhile from my perspective, whilst I appreciate a product like this needs to sustain a healthy funding to prevent it from becoming a discontinued item or a product that is no longer sustainable to produce and support .It all leaves me to think well what is the point in continuing to try and offer a template solution for something I have no experience or real understanding.

so I sincerely apologise in advance but where it is now is probably as far as it goes in terms of meteobridge use unless the meteobridge developer implements his suggestion.I see no point in offering something that doesn't work accordingly .

so please don't see it as I cant be arsed to do anything , i try to resolve most issues but meteobridge is one dark area for me.

so sorry...brian
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: dolfs on May 16, 2017, 05:38:19 PM
No apology necessary. I mentioned you do not want to support it, not to diss you, but simply stating what you said, without rehashing all the reasons. You gave them anyway, and that is great. Meanwhile I know some of us do use your template with MB so I thought there was some value in publishing the string I use.

Pure copy/paste would not cause a problem, but people trying to fiddle with individual items would (and the blame would be entirely on them), in particular because everything is order dependent and items can also not be left out or added. There was some discussion a while ago about this format (only a "d" parameter in the URL), v.s. a URL with individually labelled data items. While the former was easier because it could be made to mimic existing support for Cumulus, the latter is more resilient in the face of users trying to change something as each parameter is individually named.

Either way, I suggest you add some language to your documentation that:

I am pretty sure that between Wim, myself, and perhaps a few others, we can agree on what that latter string should be.

I think he must also stop the Cumulus updates otherwise if you just delete it, as soon as the update time comes, Cumulus will re-upload it. If you still have Cumulus uploading index.htm then you need to stop this in Cumulus.

preview of upcoming release  see screenshot below and its basically running at https://weather34.com , may not appear for a few weeks due to ramadan starting here and I kind of disappear for a month but i have been asked many times so here is a solution that allows you to choose either pre configured modules or build your own if you are experienced in web design/code.

simply it will use easyweathersetup.php and you just select from the drop down choice in any of the the 4 positions which one you want show in a particular position. it doesn't get any easier than this

literally as example
position 1 = indoor.php
position 2 = clock.php
position 3 = earthquake.php
position 4 = alerts.php

there will be a selection of small preconfigured modules to choose from and a blank module where you can design your own using whichever code you wish.

this will expand across the whole of the temple in the future. so each module will be swappable for positions , there will be eventually 13 positions to choose and use.

hello

can you please send me a copy of your old currentconditions (email) i cant remember what the code was , i do recall doing something a while ago.

if you can send it via email as I am on a limited internet via phone and forum access at times is slow, not a forum problem! my problem.

saturday i have an update to issue so i can add it into that and you can download saturday morning the download date will reflect it has been updated.

https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/


few changes nothing major just removed some of the translated terms as it is getting tedious having to design around different word length phrases in other languages . see screenshot to see the minor changes .improved earthquake layout minor visual improvements for those who monitor.further weatherflow hardware lightning implementation now records, yearly total for chart display ,daily lightning running totals.

ok no problem ive added on your description , i wasn't sure what length of time it was covering , also added the option to select the optional file within the easysetup , reduces the error chance .

download was updated also with some additional weather display clientraw weather icons .

Thanks Brian, I will grab that in the morning :)
PS, what's the best way to upgrade?

go grab a can of John Smiths ,download zip(only 3.42mb) , unzip to your desktop, delete existing files from server, upload new files to server , pour your John Smiths into a pint a glass sit back take sip of the foam if your poured it right ! (at an angle) and haaaaaa just go through the easysetup and job done . now sit back in the armchair and enjoy your pint of bitter...

in all seriousness i always say as it is such a small download do a full upgrade its takes less than 5 minutes unless you have made some personal changes directly to the code .
when there is a change to the easyweathersetup then be safe and do a full upgrade. there are times when you can just replace a file and the css files. i try to mention that in the description when possible. if it was a 30mb or more download each time i would work out a upgrade path.

...enjoy your beer i really miss real local bitter especially when i lived in Matlock for 6 years ,turkish beer is naff and imported beer(London Pride) is like 10 pound a can !

have a nice weekend..brian

ok i crossed checked elsewhere couldnt see the issue everyone else is showing fine with [819] so i then pasted in your clientrawextra into my dummy file and from your output you need to change the line shown below,dont ask me why i dont use WD..

[819] to [817]

in livedataclientrawx.php

$weather["maxsolar"]           = number_format($clientrawextra[819],0 ,'','');

to

Thought you was away, shouldnt be working, but thank you, just to let you know that if i
just update hour.php forecast is back working again and so is the station outlook, if i update
the whole forecast folder again, the forecast works great but the station outlook disappears...

oh, just noticed, at 5:40am i am pulling in UV 6 lol should be 0, not sure where its finding 6
is that for Istanbul? normally a 6 at midday for this time of year here :)

Also, when the station puts out a long outlook, it looks like the image included below ;)
Perhaps have it use more of the block?

No rush, its all working, i just updated the hour.php, talk when ya back on dry land :)

So, set it to 350 and font at 11, that was better but, still losing some off the edge, see image

quietly since end of last month a few have been ironing a few teething issues , i would like to thank all those for your continuous email input and patience .since July 1st a new version has been available but took the time to hold back on announcing it in the popular forums apart from the cumulus forum.

the changes are not major or significant that it changes anything in the way it works , just attention to user experience and cater for the casual user without creating a design that looks likes the weather on steroids . so enjoy the update and as always if your happy with your current setup there is no need to update.

VERSION 3.4-X5 (Wed 5th July 2017)
  - IE11 (Internet Explorer) css alignment fix for earthquake top module. please replace earthquake.php and three css files main.light,color,dark.css.

  - Meteobridge api Users only .Boris the developer of meteobridge has updated the firmware with HOMEWEATHERSTATION api changes.
Meteobridge V3.3 released July 2, 2017 :applies non-standard primary sensor settings to HomeWeatherStation uploads. Changing primary sensors on live data tab did not had an effect on which sensors were used for feeding HomeWeatherStation uploads. With the new release, this is taken into account as with the other weather networks.

VERSION 3.4-X5 (Saturday 1st July 2017)
  - Rainfall area re-worked now shows Rain-Rate progess meter , compiled with only css no jQuery or third party scripts , pure css designed based on a simple progress method ! uses simple multiplier method to distinct from metric and non metric
  - Rainfall Guage colored SVG added
  - Top four sections(modules) all positions are able to have any of the optional data modules .simply choose in the easyweather setup.
  - Main Clock moved out of top module position into header bar area freeing up to allow all positions to have an optional module
  - CSS files reduced by 30% now only 110k !! ..http://refresh-sf.com .performance measured at https://gtmetrix.com see screenshot below.
  - Jquery files(3) reduced by 25% !! ..http://refresh-sf.com. performance measured at https://gtmetrix.com see screenshot below.
  - Full HTTPS compliant if your webserver and domain is HTTPS compliant (Be prepared and dont wait there are some rather annoying browsers functions/annoyances just around the corner so be ready its not just about credit cards !)
  - Zambretti forecaster/outlook optional choice added on (a weather34 compiled outlook forecaster will be avilable in December 2017, brand new code and is in use at https://weather34.com
  - indexearthquake.php removed option is now available in the easyweathersetup.php to use with standard default index.php.
  - cleaner wxcharts.php optional graphic page.
  - full update required , new options in easyweathersetup.php and its now only a 2.97mb download dont mix it with 34-X4 or earlier versions.

Good morning everyone,

This is an open question to anyone who maybe using weewx in conjunction with the HomeWeatherstation template. I am interested to know if you are either using weewx extensions to generate realtime.txt or clientraw.txt files or using an alternative method.

Thank you in advance.

sorry i forgot to mention this

if a solar/lunar/annular eclipse total or partial is viewable it will show up in the weather alert box if no other weather alerts are present.

looks like this , it will only appear on the date . simple straight forward php if date xxxx no external scraping resources used and uses a simple svg icon..
I've added the dates from 2017 to 2020 will add more over time

VERSION 3.4-X5 (Fri 7th July 2017) Updated
  - Canadian Flag option added just select "CAN" in the language setup .note it is not french canadian it purley uses the english language
  - Unused Fonts removed switched to new font for numerical outputs.
  - CSS files reduced and improved.
  - New currrentconditions option to show outlook for current day as opposed to hourly data.
  - Added Lunar/Solar/Annular Eclipses to appear on date of viewable. It appears in the moon phase section as well as weather alerrt module when no other weather alerts are present.
  - Minor fix for cumulus sunshine hours where font is too small.

VERSION 3.4-X5 (Sat 8th July 2017) Updated
  - alerts module tweaked and updated to show Perseids meteor shower when peak . homenotification.php and livedata.php
  - Fixed current weather icon not showing in current34outlook.php.

https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

below shows the updated layout for different type of alerts can be shown. the solar/meteor are based annual dates and only appear on those specific dates.
for now i have only added perseids however i can add the  Geminids,Quadrantid,Lyrids etc but probably perseids is the most favourable for best viewing .

all icons are svg..

Hi

Can I in any way avoid using WU? I have read that it will be possible to use MySql instead, but can not see how I install it. Only WS1001 is mentioned.

Can I use other forecasts than WU and how do I install it?

I use clientraw with Davis Vantage Pro2

Thanks
gand
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 on July 16, 2017, 08:57:43 AM
hello

sure if you have the knowledge of setting up mysql then its relatively easy to do .

one advantage of using the direct ws1001 api method .every time the updateweatherstation.php is triggered as in my setup every 16 seconds it inserts the data to a mysql and at the end of every day 23:59 i append the data to monthly csv and yearly csv then empty the database automatically and starts a new day at midnight. this all automated without any third party software or cron job. it uses a simple built in script that triggers at 23:59 each day . in use at https://weather34.com

example of simple emptying at 23:59

<?php
if (date('Hms')>=235939){
//empty today values for homeweather station
$conn = mysqli_connect($db_host,$db_user,$db_pass,$db_name);
mysqli_query($conn,"TRUNCATE weatherstation");}
?>
   
if you are using the meteobridge api method then this will be available sometime in september  with additional code added to the mb.php api file to insert and create data into a mysql..db

the aim is to have everything automated unfortunately this template only supports api methods with ws1001 and meteobridge . there is no support for weather display or cumulus methods . however there are some that have put together there own methods to use mysql instead wu data.


for forecast in the past i have tried alternatives like darksky , accuweather , weatheronline the responses were very mixed from various locations around the world they seem to use airport data which was not much use for anyone living some distance from there nearest airport. so I went with the original idea of using WU unfortunately what works for one doesn't always work for others just the unfortunate .

there are alternatives already in use many have implemented WXSIM forecasts but these again are done by the user themselves so you need a bit knowledge of putting code together .

probably not what you wanted to hear but it is what it is for now and unlikely to see any different methods apart from reaping the benefits of using the meteobrodge api method.

i do have alternatives forecast files for darksky,accuweather you are free to try if so drop me an email and i will forward them on after the 22nd July as I no files with me at present ..

Please read below and understand the decision. I will in no doubt get a response you will lose users , Ive always said all along that has never been the motive and if I published the user count of installations on different urls you would be quite shocked, it exceeds 1200 as of April 30th 2017 what is today I have no idea or inclination to pursue and it is only a very small percentage if you compare to how many registered users there are on the popular weather forums all over the world. So please understand my decision and when I say sorry I truly mean it because many of you have contributed so much over the last two years but its become a chore to work in multiple languages in fact it is not fun or enjoyable anymore .Ive always tried to keep everything useable without losing the originality of the design which began in 2015 from a piece of notepad paper in the back of a taxi .Always i wanted a minimal design with enough information to keep the interest or curiosity when viewing , there are multiple templates available on these forums that cater for languages and far more in depth information,statistics and so on, so not all is lost there are alternatives to choose from.


VERSION 3.4-X5(E) and (WXSIM-2) (4th Aug July 2017) *Important
  - As of September 1st 2017 there will be no more language support or inclusion of languages in this template or any future versions .It has become incredibly difficult to design in many languages , this is not because of the script process it is simply down to word variation lengths and it has become nigh on impossible to actually produce a clean design in multiple languages .
It doesnt which language if it was only one language doesnt matter which language it would be easy to maintain to design for so it is not a prejudice approach or thought, it is just a fact it is nigh on impossible to get right and with 27 languages it is not an easy task to find a balance visually .
This was recently very apparent when putting together the WXSIM add on the biggest obstacle to match the WXSIM feature to the rest of the design was word variation lengths across different languages.So therefore I sincerely apologize all future releases will be available in english only . The language support feature will be removed and no support going forward will be available for languages other than english or turkish..
So this version available now today is the last version to support multiple languages ..So sorry Brian..

Developing a template is unfortunately not an easy task, not just in terms of the actual code, if any one of you ever tries you will probably find the hard way.

All I can say about your decision Brian is that it is with regret, but I understand... totally
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard Project is finished
Post by: weather34 on August 08, 2017, 04:10:36 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 ..

Hi Brian,

thanks, once again thank you for what you have done for the community, I am deeply disappointed by the attitude of some people and unfortunately, we both know that offering a template like this - in PHP, JS etc. means you can never hide anything and if someone knows the code well, sooner or later they will be able to delete any potential measures you take to try to prevent this.

I fully understand how you feel and let me just add one personal fact - what do you think was the main and final reason I changed from open downloads to requests (apart from distributing the load on the server).... And it is also true that if we assume the percentage of these what I call "problematic users" is always the same, it is unfortunately the case that with more and more people using your template, you will come across these "problematic users" more and more often. It is then only a matter of time how long one can bear it. I know this did not happen for the first time to you.

All this is basically dependent on trust and in the meantime, for me, you, Wim, Ken... it is a hobby and so once it is no longer a hobby, and becomes something that is worrying you, stressing you, or in your case most likely very annoying you, there really is no point in continuing.

I always really liked your template, helped you with it in a small way too and always recommended it when someone was looking for a more simple, clean and 100% responsive design. In that respect one would probably not find an alternative.

I wish you the very best, hope you find some other hobby or way of using your time, something that you will really enjoy and if you keep coming here just to check and there and then comment on general things, you are more than welcome by all of us.

Hi Brian,

I can not believe what I've just read.........some person has stolen your code and is portraying it as his own, yes I checked his website, there must be something we can all do to get rid of this jerk.

Personally I hate people with a passion who steal others efforts, none of us would be here if the likes of Ken were not around.  After all, the likes of Ken started most if not all of us off on this journey with his templates, that's why he gets all the deserved credit, as mentioned on our own sites - it's the right thing to do - it's just a shame that Brian didn't somehow copyright the template software, but I fully understand where he's coming from, it started as a hobby, you trust your fellow users, you end up with something awesome - then some piece of S*** comes along and takes it under his wing. 

What a huge shame and disrespect to Brian for what this person has done.

Sorry to lose you Brian, you didn't deserve that, as Jachym said, please come by and check us all out.

All the best Nick. dw7240.com.

P.S. Sorry for the above, just feel strongly about this, but before I put both my feet into this and get it all wrong, I just went back to the offending website and this is what I read...........

When creating a web site, oftentimes other people’s work is leveraged. In my case, I would like to acknowledge the tireless work that has been put in by Brian Underdown of weather34.com to create his wonderful weather template known as “weather34”. This template is what has been used to create the site at hastingsweather.com.au as well as being used for many other weather sites around the world. It is a beautiful template with responsive design, flexible layout for viewing on mobile devices, rich graphics and charts.

The weather34 template is available for download at https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/ under a Creative Commons license. Thanks to Brian for his work and for his contribution to the weather community.

Clearly this website is trying to sell the template, but that's not clear from what I've read, and yes he's talking about customization, but users on here have done the same thing, maybe there needs to be some clarification on this.

My opinion on this is that one of us on here should contact the website owner (David) and ask what his services entail and at what cost, then say why are you charging for something that is free ?

I too have visited his website as I'm sure a lot of us have.

Unless it has been removed, I don't see anything about selling a template.

All I see is that he is trying to sell his services to someone wanting to have a website of their own.
He acknowledges that his website is based on Brian's work and has provided a link to Brian's site.

I don't see why anyone would purchase his services when Brian has made it very easy to set his template up for even the novice.
And, Brian has always been willing to help when we get stuck.

I hope Brian takes a few days and will reconsider and not let this guy try to take away from what he has accomplished.

Nick. dw7240.com.

As I said you can make any judgement you wish and the guy has reworded and changed it.

I am not or was not against customization that's the one of the most productive parts and if I made a template that allowed you to successfully customize to your requirements then I did something right didn't I? I listened and added requests albeit slowly but I always wanted ideas to work with the rest of design..

but let's be totally clear about the guy ,replaced all designed by weather34.com with designed by weathersoft.au.com in his services page he clearly stated offering the template designed by weathersoft.au.com , he also had a section how he designed the template for a yacht club..

His response began with ooops ! Yeah right do I look dumb mr David Findlay then responses
Of well I followed the licenses but he didn't follow the license conditions as I pointed out to him.
So no matter how you looked at it he was caught red handed offering the template for his own financial gain .
He never once defended that or denied he just threw back licenses ..he also tried to cover up designed weather34 .com with his weathersoft domain by saying the license permitted it.

So I can only say what you see now on his website was not there 2 days ago. So is it a sign of guilt ? As I replied to him whatever amendments you make do it because it's honest .

My decision to call it day was not solely based on this individuals actions it was the tipping point  he was not the first and would have not been the last.

So you are going to be thinking we why not just keep it has a download , quite simple  I don't want to deal with this type of thing anymore , I can't control these type of actions  neither do I want to that is just the sad state and mindset of a minority that we have to tolerate..

As I sent out last night in a staggered  bulk email this actually was a community collaborative result without all those small issues highlighted over the last two years or more and those requests of specific data values or changes to suit a particular piece of hardware or software it would never become what it was quite simple it was not all down to me I just made them work in the design .

I wish I had put designed by weather34.com and the weather community ..

So make whatever judgement you wish what is done is done and I have no inclination to continue.. I felt totally cheated , disheartened and demoralized.

and yes you are totally correct taking the means to protect via copyright or something along them lines Im to blame as much as him , i left my door unlocked with the keys in it ! but you would also think for something that is a hobby and enjoyment why would you have to go down that path ..but there we are lesson learnt ..

I repeat 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 !!..

the Fact is Weather$oft blatantly plagiarised Brains work. and no doubt  hastingsweather.com.au were told Weather$oft was the designer of that site.


Also once of the posts on weather$oft.com.au has been edited to now give full recognition to Brian and his work.

He - David Finlay - failed to explain the reason the download is now not available, NOR why Brian has given up on his 2 year project.

He might live with his guilt, but shaming himself maybe a step to far, and then others would know of his guilt too.

The major problem in this case is that with web apps, you cannot prevent it. As long as the service you provide is not running on your server - i.e. you do not have control over it, people will always be able to do whatever they want because due to its very nature, PHP, HTML, CSS, JS... they are all open-source and with sufficient knowledge you can modify or remove any protection mechanisms. As far as I know, this was not the first time it happened to Brian, would probably happen again and did happen to me as well...

Let me second Jachym's and Toxic's comments. Open source in HTML/CSS/JavaScript and PHP can't be really secured against plagiarism - it can be obfuscated to make it unusable but to the most determined, but that's just annoying.  My code has been freely released for over 10 years now, and I encourage folks to use/modify to their hearts content -- I only request that attribution be maintained in the code, and a link to my site is requested.  Donations are always nice, but never expected.

It is very disappointing to see someone so blatantly assume authorship of software they have obtained from others -- that is not right and the perpetrator should be publicly shamed for the plagiarism.   

I hope that after some time, the 'itch' to code will strike Brian again, and that he might return some day to support his excellent work.

Yes Ken, I totally agree, however removing credits is one thing - it annoys you, I have seen it several times in the past with MT as well and you just think to yourself, whatever.... majority of users dont remove the credits. However it becomes a lot different when you find this person is also selling it. If at least he was just freely redistriburing it - not right, but still better than this. In case of Meteotemplate, my "advantage" is that given its size and number of scripts and the protection mechanisms, the person who wanted to also sell it later gave up and as a paradox, I got to know about this also by him actually asking me for support...  ](*,)

I wonder why templates and plugins can't be secured there are a lot of premium templates and plugins for wordpress, how do they do that ?
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: saratogaWX on August 09, 2017, 03:56:07 PM
The WordPress premium plugins are generally downloaded from behind a 'pay wall' that includes a token in the code -- that combined with a registration at the site results in some code that decripts/deobfuscates the running code on the WP installation.
Very complicated, prone to break if the 'pay wall' site is down (some templates/plugins check at each invocation).

A lot of trouble for those of us who offer the source code freely.

I agree with Jachym that having someone claim authorship of the plagiarized code and reselling it is way over the line unethical and inappropriate.

- you write the code in some language such as C, C#, C++, Basic, Pascal etc.
- you compile the code into the actual .exe file and release it
- result: the person using it cannot see the code. If you open the .exe file in notepad you will see just some very long nonsense. The code cannot be reverse engineered

Web App:
- you write the code in some language like PHP, JavaScript, HTML
- you release it, there is no compile step
- result: whoever downloads it sees the code in its full extent. Now, of course you could implement some protection mechanisms, but if someone understands the code and takes the time, sooner or later they will find where in the code this protection is located and either remove it or modify it.

At least with PHP you cannot see the code if you only see the result. This means that for example, if you were selling a PHP script, you could let the user see a DEMO, without them being able to copy the original PHP code. They only see the resulting HTML, which is not enough to deduce the original PHP script. As soon as someone buys it however, they see it and if they send it to someone else there is nothing you can do.

With Javascript it is a complete disaster. If you want to show a user a demo of something you created and then sell it, they can see all the code, just view the source, download all the JS dependencies and you have it... and if you know Javascript, it is only a matter of some time to make it work on your page. No problems...

As mentioned before, you can implement some checking and protection mechanisms, but if someone knows the code well and finds it, they will be able to remove it.

Thank you for your all the ongoing emails however let me say quite clearly and I no longer have that "ITCH" I'm afraid Ken .Ive been trying to make this reply over the last few in the case of I might feel somewhat different but I don't in anyway Im afraid..

The weather template is no longer available from myself or weather34 website.
It has been discussed on numerous forums and unfortunately I no longer want to continue even after some consideration but I feel a total lack of trust and enthusiasm .I am very sorry for any inconvenience caused this project is over and finished . 

I appreciate your kind words and acknowledge them but there is no more support and any support emails requested will not be answered..It is finished and I no longer will monitor the email address after September 1st.. 

you can achieve anything you want in web design . I have designed websites believe it or not since 1999 up till a few days ago I thought it was 2002 .. web design is all about your imagination and also learning to understanding requirements and best practices, it doesn't come overnight and can take years,sometimes forever has trends shift and as we have seen in recent years devices have completely dictated the trends in web design, think differently and ignore , you will get left behind in the archives or just have poorly performing weather station website ...avoid flash like the plague which probably already have realised..

One serious TIP when choosing your web hosting service and and treat it as important as the accuracy and reliability of your weather station.Over the last two years i have seen many not take this view and use a low cost $1 a month package or something in that ballpark. I don't understand that in terms of offering your weather data to the public you spend perhaps 100s or thousands on your weather station and not treat the reliability of your web hosting with the same approach. Ive used ICDSOFT for a few years now I pay $90 dollars a year each year it goes down ! .it allows me to develop on and i can throw anything it, at times i have had 4 or 5 different projects running and at one point last year i was hosting a hotel portal database that was  really heavy on the server load alongside two other projects and my own weather station page...So treat your hosting choice as you would when choosing your weather station for its accuracy and reliability.

ALSO avoid external resources from other urls especially realtime iframe usage this has an enormous impact on the performance of your site , yes it looks neat but I have taken the time to measure performances of many websites where iframe and direct external resources are used on a home page or there main page and the result is appalling truly appalling , I'm surprised in this day an age that anyone will actually hang around long enough for the page to load to see something..

the results are quite shocking ill let you discover it all ...

I can only say it's a bit like building and designing your own house you can really achieve anything if you put your mind to it and those put those ideas into practice, web design does not have to be a complex disorganized array of code.follow the basic rules and don't try to be a hero and measure the performance on a regular basis, design with an empty a basic template and start at the beginning take your time you won't go wrong and the outcome will be a pleasant surprise and probably a pleasant surprise to many others.I hope this design has inspired others to try there own ideas ..

I really truly do sincerely apologise for any inconvenience, but has I said earlier in the week If I make an exception for one Ill have to do it for all and thats a trap Im not going to fall into......anyway the football season will begin again this weekend and I have today bought a new season ticket(its a plastic atm styled card now with my mugshot on it). I have set a personal goal attending all home games and as many away games as possible...thats my real passion and having a wife who shares the same enthusiasm for football is rare I think ....
"en buyuk Besiktas "... anyway the weekend has landed and football begins..

I also have just been notified the individual at the root of all this has now reverted back to a flash based website :-) sadly i cant view it my iPad browser it don't support flash...

Hi Brian,
again, totally understood, though I would recommend you do one thing.

It is finished and I no longer will monitor the email address after September 1st..

If I were you, I would ask one of your existing more advanced users in terms of coding - some of them surely know at least the basics of HTML or PHP - to take over the emails for those who have installed the template in the past.
I am not talking about new users, but the ones who are already using it. And ask this person to answer any potential emails these people send. Of course they might not always know the answer, but better than nothing and still no extra work for you.

- ads wherever you look
- telling users to purchase a different browser because you decided only to support some
- unreadable text on image background

I could go on... seriously, from the design perspective and how pages are made today, it is a textbook example of how not to do it

Hello

I thought I would update you on this template. over the last week I quietly implemented a new menu system . it was actually done back in July but was never released as I was concentrating on other things at the time , it basically gives you a full discreet menu when using any device,desktop,tablet etc it was often asked for as I disabled the menu view when using on a mobile device . It is just a few lines of css there is no jquery or any magic switching going on it is just using "@css media" . the new menu has some svg icons you can assign to your specific extra links it was inspired by the dribble website and example of @css media is like this

@media screen and (max-width:1024px){.main-menu{background:0 0}}
@media screen and (max-width:768px){.main-menu{background:0 0}}
@media screen and (max-width:640px){.main-menu{background:0 0}}
@media screen and (max-width:320px){.main-menu{background:0 0}}

a few of you have already downloaded this and are using it and I did not receive any issues sent back or bugs so it is good for general release. This is now the most final version you will ever see of this template as far I am concerned its gone as far it can and as good as it will ever be without going down a totally different path. Since dropping the direct email support and pushing users to the various forums to iron out any teething issues has been a lot better for me personally Im no longer waking upto endless emails to work through each day..So its nice and does not seem to cause anyone any issues .Ive always said there is a wealth of knowledge and experience right across the various forums.

As for the future there is nothing in the pipeline apart from polishing of a dedicated WEATHERFLOW version when the hardware is finally available I wont release anything until WEATHERFLOW has been announced for general purpose .I am currently testing there hardware and can actually say the AIR model is a good addition to any existing weather station especially for lightning detection ..

other few little changes template the PHP version displayed at the foot of the template has been replaced with station operational since whatever date you started.
PHP version has been moved to the easyweathersetup screen its a useful reference for those wanting to know exactly what version there host is using etc..
removed the phpo contact form to problematic when trying to update for 27 languages it now just uses a standard html email link not perfect but addressing the code
and then checking 27 languages was a nightmare in fact anything involving checking across 27 languages was a nightmare..
other minor visual changes and once again the svg/css files have been optimised accordingly .

so dont see this has anyhting other than what has been said above I really have no plans to improve or continue but I personally think it is perfectly fine in its current state and doesn't need any updates .FYI information I have also been running a PHP 7.2.0 Beta http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-7.php#7.0.22 I have addressed a few minor issues and compatibility s .so I am not anticipating any issues going forward when its released but I will continue to follow the changes ..

so as always you can get the new combined download at https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation 

have a nice day have a nice week ..brian

hello sorry no idea I dont have that version to hand but in general i have made only changes to css files, menu.php,shared.php , index.php (you may have to adapt for tony's version but only at the footer area.) and the easyweathersetup.php has  the inclusion of php version value in the header.

so i dont think its too difficult to adapt it to tony's version.

best discuss on the cumulus forum as there are a few users using that mysql version i dont anticipate any problems tony is quite switched on IM SURE HE WILL HELP IF HE IS AROUND....

When looking at the today rain graph, it shows a big dip.

in todayrainfall.php
Quote
   function processData2(allText) {
      var allLinesArray = allText.split('\n');
      if(allLinesArray.length>0){
         
         for (var i = 2; i <= allLinesArray.length-1; i++) {
            var rowData = allLinesArray.split(',');
            if ( rowData.length >1)
            //rainfall
            dataPoints1.push({label:moment(rowData[0]).format('HH:mm'),y:parseFloat(rowData[12])});
            
         }
         drawChart(dataPoints1 , dataPoints2 );
      }

I changed the red line to
Quote
if ( rowData[12] >-1)

which 'fixed' the graph.
My PHP knowledge is very limited, so the question is, is there a more elegant solution?

yes the issue lies in the data stored at weather underground that txt file only pulls down what is stored at your weather underground . best way forward use mysql you have some control over it see ideas at the cumulus forum .

the idea you have put out doesn't correct the data stored in the txt file ? but it does erode the values of anything less than -1 being shown. get your head around mysql its far more efficient and reliable..   brian

Post by: weather34 on August 29, 2017, 11:39:37 AM
having looked at your signature your using meteobridge , the mysql solution is right at your finger tips to use . Im really i cant support it just gets too overwhelming at times but rest assured this template used with the meteobridge api function will do a lot things not so apparent . on my website i simply where the ws1001 pings the updateweatherstation.php file every aprox 16 seconds i just added code below into the file which then automatically dumps the data into my database .

this should get you on the right track this is at the bottom of my file updateweatherstation.php this could easily be adapted to the mb.php file which is pinged or called by meteobridge at intervals when using this template you just have to adapt it according to the meteobridge tags .. end of each day i run an automated empty script at 11:59 and append the daily data a monthly and yearly csv file the database never gets to large and so easy to manage.. and the server never has to deal with a database with millions of rows .hence it runs smoothly and hosting companies like that :-)

 //insert into daily mysqli table
    mysqli_query($conn,"INSERT INTO weatherstation(time,outsideTemp,barometer,raintoday,UV,windgustmph,windSpeed,radiation,dewpoint,rainrate,direction,date,lightning)
    VALUES('$updated', '$temp', '$barometer','$raintoday','$uv','$windgust','$windspeed','$solar','$dewpoint','$rainrate','$direction','$date','$lightning')");   
    if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
     printf("Connect failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
 }
//end mysqli and EOF //

hope it is of some help if not, im sure you can create your own solution..brian

Yes, you are right, it does not fix the data file and I don't mind the wrong data being there. I was more interested to make the graph look right.

Before I had the Meteobridge, I did a redirect of my OIP to a home grown PHP program on my webserver. There I pulled out the data and changed it to CWOP format and then posted it to CWOP.
So I might have the foundation to start.
I run a VM server that acts as my firewall and a number of VM clients, including a webserver.
As it runs 24/7, I have the infrastructure and can easily add a SQL server to it.

Thanks for the information.

Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 on September 02, 2017, 03:18:22 AM
Good morning

the PM are filtering through as an alternative to get my attention :-) so here is some open answers ..

1. i removed the wind direction SVG icon in the forecast output as it is somewhat tedious on working to get it right in other languages other than english.
the script simply takes the wind direction output in the forecast itself , it doesnt generate a bearing number output like 90 it generates East .
so when looking at the output to generate the corresponding svg icon the issues arise ..

for just one example there could be others
SW in French is SO so would call SO.svg
SE in German is SO so would call SO.svg 

so see the problem it would take a lot of unique scripting to cater for correct icon to display across all the languages the problem shown above is that you cant have two identical named files and it gets messy and would probably require  a separate image folder for each language where one conflicts with the other.so I have removed it . its not just one language to look at it is and was 27 languages and extra icons would have to be made and checked across all languages .Confused?  so Im sorry it was removed and is only available in the WXSIM version .

note all icons are made in SVG i do myself using Sketch or AI using a vector image size of 1600px this way it scales up and down with out any loss of quality and working with SVG has no real bearing on the file size in general most svg's with in this template are less than 4k ! so there is no performance hit unlinke using a png or gif,jpg at image size 1600px .beauty of SVG you can actually edit it directly in a text editor or dedicated html,php,code editor .

example of controlling the output size <svg width="302pt" height="340pt" ....

so scaling up and down as you can see from screenshot scaled up x5 original size in the browser !


2.why the separate downloads for example cu-x5 ? it is for anyones benefit who likes to tweak the template to there liking using the individual versions CU-X5(cumulus) the only code you are using and editing is cumulus related stuff and your not loading up anything unused ..theoretically :-)

3.why cant i use the weatherflow code yet ?  i have only partially added this code for future reference/release of hardware and have not added any other stuff related to weatherflow hardware . until the hardware is fully available to purchase I am not releasing the full api based script or direct hardware script . When its all officially released i will release a dedicated branded version of the template solely for the weatherflow hardware. the code is fully working at my weather station url https://weather34.com once I have received the wind,rain,uv,solar hardware i will put up a full working demo.

4.why the silent updates ? these are just things that were put together and never got released prior to August 2017 . I recently cleared out my ext hard drive and found a few scripts and ideas I had been working on and 90% completed but never added them on to the releases in the past.So thats all they are and they are NOT significant in anyway that changes or adds on extra features there just designed based which theoretically improves the appearance and design..

5.why don't you release the MYSQL version done by Tony(HRVISTA)? best thing is to contact tony and discuss with him i thinks its better as he knows better about his implementation than I .. ps it works really well and could easily be adapted to meteobridge,weather display and so on ..but Im not getting involved mysql support in any way I use it at https://weather34.com and it is uses automated script routines at the end of each day 11:59:40 I never have to do any direct maintenance and it NEVER grows to more than 1mb in size :-) .

6.you recommend WXSIM but its expensive ? well its totally reliable and is a real good EXCELLENT addition to any personal weather station and takes away the emphasis on using the commercial or popular SCRAPED forecast data provided by companies like WU,DarkSky and so on .. you just have justify its cost and it really makes your weather station independent somewhat ! ps I dont use it I dont use any weather based computer software at all I just observe what others use..

so there we are hope that answers some of them openly ..

Hi everyone!
I have a problem with my template (34-X 5). I have no MAX / AVG / MIN wind value and barometer. I'm using WS1001. Is there a tip to fix this? Below I marked the values I am writing about.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

hello sorry for the delay in replying ...

you dont have a problem when using a ws1001 without any additional software/hardware there is NO max/min etc you need software cumulus,weather display etc or hardware like meteobridge .. without the software or hardware you need to be using a MYSQL(i) database . this is where
the max,min,average etc and chart data is pulled from on my site using a WS1001.. So in short you need to read up on using and setting up a MYSQL database on your server.. sorry there is no support from me for database useage , however there is a wealth of information all over the internet in how to set one up..

i received some pm reference the Air Quality Index (aqi) i run on my website at https://weather34.com  screenshot attached it is merely a simple script consisting of a few lines of php and and some css . Here in Istanbul there are numerous air quality based station available , Im fortunate to have one less than half a kilometre away so I use that for the reading ..if you need more information on how to add it on drop me a PM i will be around most of next week..

json output doesn't get any simpler than this

{"aqiv":50,"utime":"2017-09-05 12:00:00","mtime":1504602775,"stime":1504602775}

so the php is simply added into the livedata like this again it doesn't get simpler than this and the output from the station updates hourly

// weather34 Aqi  simple script
$json_string             = file_get_contents("jsondata/aqi.txt");
$parsed_json             = json_decode($json_string);
$aqiweather["aqi"]          = $parsed_json->{'aqiv'};



so the output is a simple circled value with the colour background changes according to the AQIindex colour scale based at https://aqicn.org/scale/

good morning

i have received numerous requests can you just goto http://aqicn.org/city/all/  and determine your nearest AQI station ..the script is using the official aqicn api so just for starters all I need is your nearest AQI station or the url it returns . i will then send you a file to use which you can theoretically just replace existing .note the updates vary from 1 hour to 3 hours based on the actual station itself nothing can be done to reduce the interval data update time from our end..

i will endeavour to send it along next week.. brian

Thanks for this brian, however no active AQI sensors installed around so I will request if I installed already my own AQI sensor. . . . .

Hello I don't know exactly  I was sent a test unit I didn't pay anything apart from customs clearance.I think Piet from your country ordered one a few months ago perhaps check with him I think his forum name is giantocr if not I can send you his email . Brian

I should add my test unit is not the final product there has been some changes since I received it a few months ago..

I only use mine for lightning detection it's very easy to mount anywhere I have mine just under the roof apex . 

It's rated at a 40km detection but I often see detection at 100km but bear in mind I have a 270 degree  sea view with not much localized interference .

Post by: weather34 on September 15, 2017, 03:27:58 AM
good morning ..

Update is not a significant update just a slight visual improvement made to the cloudbase graphic script.. see screenshot.

few open answers ..

weatherflow many pm about weatherflow hardware ..firstly i did not purchase it , it was sent to me as a field test unit to develop the template for it , I have no information about where you can actually purchase because it is still being developed https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/weatherflow-smart-weather-stations#/

"May 2017 Update:   Field testing is currently in progress during May and June 2017. Based on the results of the field testing, we hope to begin delivery to all others backers in August 2017. Sorry for the delay as we are prioritizing quality over speed. "
I have some other information but it is best that information comes from Weatherflow themselves .

Database configuration.. OK i will bow to the demand I will some time in October release a MYSQL version for meteobridge users only . I am currently going to install some new hardware here one is a Oregon WMR300 via meteobridge and a Davis VP2 via meteobridge(meteostick) .I dont have much space to mount these side by side so hopefully during october/november i will have had the chance to use both of these pieces of hardware and adjust the template to use MYSQL(i) and be simply setup by the easyweathersetup screen. so please be patient I will do it and make it as simple as I can to use and the aim will be a one click setup as in use at my current url https://weather34.com but I need to install the hardware and meteobridge first when the time permits .
big thank you to Boris of meteobridge for the meteobridge and meteostick.

Database for Cumulus users , it already exists and was developed by Tony HRVISTA it can be found on the cumulus forum however support is limited to those already using ,I have no further information on it all I know is it works very well.

Database for Weather Display unlikely this will ever happen from me as I don't use the software and have zero knowledge or any other software it would be upto users like Cumulus users who have collaborated .

I can only develop or design for the hardware I have available to use all the rest comes from user ideas and input..

hope that clarifies a few questions and I promise I will release a meteobridge MYSQL version as soon as I can when I am able to install the hardware and use for a week or two..

As for September I think Monday was 33c with a horrible dew point of 23c  no wind it was horrendous next week similar 30+ horrible humidity feeling you wouldn't like this type of heat trust me having lived in the  U.K. For 40 years I used to dream of hot weather all I remember is a few days of upper 20s and lower 30s for a few days a year but Istanbul suffers from really horrible humidity we rarely get dry hot temperatures always high dew point readings come with it. again .. most of my friends from U.K. Who came and visited say I'm so,lucky but they experience a week or two of it not 4 months of it on average .. so pro and cons of warmer climate than the U.K. Right now I would give anything to see a whole day of rain ..anyway take care have a nice weekend .. brian

GOOD AFTERNOON ...

here is the last of the ideas I had sitting on my drive , the aim to present data clearly and relatively easy for enthusiasts and non enthusiasts to fathom out the actual data..see screenshot below..

these particular modules have all been reworked with just css and again inspired by the ideas found on https://dribble.com note dribble doesnt offer scripts or css so you have to go away and work it out but most of the time its relatively common css ..

https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

hope you like it ..has I said a few posts back Im planning to do a meteobridge mysql once I have the hardware installed and run it for few days or weeks .
but right its just to dam humid to do anything , i can wipe moisture of my arms at present just sitting here,its the downside of living so close to the sea front especially when theres no wind.so when it cools down somewhat i will hopefully get up on the roof and do it..brian

Brian,

Interesting issue - in case someone else has the problem. I noticed that my template stopped posting data after the PHP version was updated to 5.6.31, by my hosting provider. So, i downloaded your latest meteobridge version September 23, 2017, and installed. I could not get the template to post data from my MBrealtimeupload.txt file. Everything in the easysetup looked fine, but the template had no data. In addition, the Demo data worked fine. In the past, I had always used the path http://Domain/pws/MBrealtimeupload.txt and that worked fine. I changed the path to MBrealtimeupload.txt (root pws directory) and it found the data and that solved the issue. It's now posting fine, with the exception, of the forecast and current conditions script - which may be a Weather Underground problem.

looks like the problem is also blocking the k-index data, earthquake data also .  so check folder/file permissions , is fwrite supported , is fopen supported
since upgrade worth checking if anything has got changed in the upgrade. the template is developed on php 7 to 7.1.8 and php 7.2(beta) .

Yes, you are right. I reset all of the permissions, in case they were changed during the update. Did not seem to make any difference. I am wondering if it has something to do with SSL. It appears that they may have enabled OpenSSL on the server, but I am not sure it is fully implemented. I can get to the site via Https. I will take a look at the PHPinfo and see if I spot anything.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did check those out and both are correct. The template was working fine until the Hosting company upgraded the PHP version to 5.6.31. It seems that has killed PHP in the template.

Yes. All is well. The updated PHP had fopen turned off by default. The hosting provider had not passed on that info. Enabled it and everything went back to normal.

Hi Chuck,

allow_url_fopen will need to be set to "on" for the PHP part of your website to function correctly.

Yes, that must be the problem. My server cannot grab the data from WU. When they upgraded PHP the newer version had this disabled by default - for security.

Thanks for the info.
Good morning I just checked everything seems ok now so I guess you got to the bottom of it..brian
Brian,
Yes. All is well. The updated PHP had fopen turned off by default. The hosting provider had not passed on that info. Enabled it and everything went back to normal.

Thanks!

Chuck

im glad, however keep a lookout during october , i will release a version solely for meteobridge-api to use mysql(i) ,just need some time to get up on the roof and install some new hardware and test them out . so wu will only provide forecast data . hopefully it should be a relatively easy setup for the template as Im using mysql with the ws1001 template version .. ps OS wmr300 looks awfully the same as a Davis VP2 especially the rain bucket section ive yet to peep inside the temp/humidity section but think i will tomorrow.unfortunately i dont have space to run them side by side for a comparison but shockingly similar on first inspection..brian

I saw your earlier post about a mysql version. That sounds great. I have used the ws1001 with the meteostick in the past. I switched over to the Davis VP2 several months ago. I think you will like the Davis VP2/Meteostick combination - it is "rock solid".

ha good, as for the ws1001 well its served me well for the last 2.5 years and ive always treated it as a relative indicator not a scientific tool and I did a few modifications to reduce the direct sunlight spikes that worked really well and did a few modifications to eliminate the adverse spikes during heavy rain and dense fog etc as the water/condensation would build up or find its way into the sensor circuitry. i think ill always keep it as a fallback unit if something goes wrong with the newer hardware. however I have a dilemma  of which one to keep wmr300 or vp2 as I am donating one to a local school here in istanbul so i wont draw any conclusions and certainly not assume one is better than the other until i had few weeks using them..probably end up tossing a coin :-) ..

have fun take care...brian

good morning

the moon information pop up module has now been reworked , the moonphase output I sat down and re-wrote,compiled from the ground up has the original had a lot of code that was not needed so this a very slimmed down version and the actual script for the moonphase output visually is basically less than 1kb !! . see screenshot.

please note all information pop up modules like moon,earthquake,aqi,aurora,meteor all reside in a folder called info . so to use these you could simply just replace the index.php and the info folder from the download but *note if you using the mysql version by tony (HRVISTA) you will need to modify the index.php to point to the files int the info folder example for moon info it would be info/moondata.php , earthquake info/eqlist.php and so on..

*note i will either publish the scripts or provide info to encourage others to create there own for there own projects , i see alot of people now creating there websites so hopefully it will be of use to many, if not its always there for reference..

Brian,

Just updated to the latest template. Looks great!  One question:

I have noticed that all of my template elements rarely load, since my hosting company updated PHP on the server. Sometimes I have to refresh the browser several times. This did not happen before the PHP update to 5.6.31. Do you have any suggestions about PHP parameters that I may need to adjust?

Thanks,

Chuck

i have spent 20 minutes or so monitoring things .. how often is the http://myrtlebeachweather.org/pws/MBrealtimeupload.txt  updated because that doesnt seen to get updated to often on your server

looking at below i first accessed it at 07:38(00:38 your time) my time

here was the output you can see the time is 00.33:56

so have the hosts included an timed cache in .htaccess file ?

is there some cache enabled at server level ?

these would cause the txt file to be static for whatever the cacheing period is .

I have a problem similar to one mentioned in this thread

My Internet Service Provider was sold to another company, and the other day, all files were moved to another server.
Since then, I have not been able to display my weather page correctly.
No current data is displayed.
The historical data - day, month, year - is still displayed correctly.

See the top link below.

The station uploads to WU
See the bottom link below.

As a test, I've got a new API key at WU, and I have cleared browser data, but without results.

updateweatherstation.php apparently only runs when I do it manually and apparently does not generate any data. Everything in ws1001.txt. shows "null"

I have run "phpinfo ()" on the new server.
allow_url_fopen is ON.

Can anyone have an idea of what I can do?

hello

you need to check if the ws1001 console is connecting to the updateweatherstation.php 

you may have to edit the server.ini file on the firmware

[Menu]
default=www.wunderground.com
web=1
web1=www.wunderground.com
web2=www.kvisselsvenner.dk

[www.wunderground.com]
Server=kvisselsvenner.dk/pws/

ReadOnly=true

[www.kvisselsvenner.dk]
Server=www.kvisselsvenner.dk/pws/
ServerType=php
ServerPort=80
UploadType=Customize
ReadOnly=true

try above and reboot the console

likelihood the ws1001 is not seeing that file hence the nulls when you ping it manually .

Thanks for reply

Oh, I see that there is also a folder "weatherstation" inside the "pws" folder.

I have always used to have "updateweatherstation.php" in a folder "weatherstation" which is in the root of the "public_html" folder and has been untouched for a very long time.

In "easyweathersetup.php" path to data file is
http://kvisselsvenner.dk/weatherstation/ws1001.txt

Is there an idea to change Server.ini on the console, when "weatherstation" is in the root?

I'm starting to think that the new server is very restrictive as to who can write in the files. I have looked at some log files that show that writing in ws1001.txt has been prevented. The supporter of the ISP can obviously not help.

Wondering if a completely new installation of the template is a good idea?
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 on September 29, 2017, 07:37:20 AM
hello

you have to determine where your console is looking for the file updateweatherstation.php

if its in the root the just your domain in the server.ini would be kvisselsvenner.dk/

if its in the pws folder pws/weatherstation ?? then the server.ini would be looking kvisselsvenner.dk/pws/

i can kick your updateweatherstation.php manually and it writes nulls so nothing to do with host or isp otherwise it would prevent me .


in the easyweathersetup its either going to be www.kvisselsvenner.dk/pws/weatherstation.ws1001.txt or if its in your root then
its going to be www.kvisselsvenner.dk/weatherstation/ws1001.txt

so you need to work out exactly what the console is looking for .

remember the template only reads a file in this case its looking for ws1001.txt it doesn't control how the your console sends the data.

im still using the ws1001 for another couple of weeks i could possibly configure mine to send data to your server to test and see if it accepts the data but i cant do that till next week unfortunately busy weekend with football and relatives..brian

Hi Brian
Yes, yes  :grin:
I see that you have put data in my "ws1001.txt" at 14:41:57
Here the template can find them well.
You do not have much warmer than it is in Denmark  :grin:

I also have something to do with family etc in this weeend, but I will look at Server.ini when I get time.

If I make it work, I'll tell you of course.

Brian,

My upload interval is set at 10 minutes. Generally on first load one or two of the template panels will be blank. If I refresh using "shift" to force a new data pull it will generally load everything. This seems to be consistent across Browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Edge). I never noticed this prior to the PHP update. The interesting thing is it seems to load 99% of the time on my Ipad (using any browser). I will PM the file.

Thanks,

Chuck

example ini_set('memory_limit', '2048M');

ini_set('memory_limit', '1024M');

i use an ipad air 2 /pro all the time multiple tabs open etc

your going to have to root it out as you had no issues prior to server changes..

process of elimination can be teething but good learning curve ..

Yes. I will experiment. Strange that it works fine (everything loads first time) on The Ipad Air 2 using any Browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari). But, on the Windows 10 desktop all three Browsers drop a couple of the information panels. Refreshing a few times makes them appear.

Hmm, my console is crazy, or I'm crazy - I'd like to accept the "honor"  :oops:

updateweatherstation has not been moved on the server.
Server.ini is unchanged since it worked.

I've tried everything I can find:
- replaced the special Server.ini with the original, - of course, connection to the WU
- again replaced the original Server.ini with that, Brian shows - again connect to wu but still no data for updateweatherstation.php
- Hard reset of the console with new password entry to router, etc.

Still no new data in ws1001.txt.

When I want to examine "Data uploading" in settings on the console, it shows a continuous hourglass.

I do not have enough technical insight to track where my console sends data.

i have emailed you a solution unfortunately after today i will no longer have the WS1001 installed to test anything in the future.

bottom line with the ws1001 personal website usage is getting that path correct and try the sub domain solution i sent along this has resolved
this type of issue many times over the last year or more..

has you know the ws1001 once you get this right it is a self sufficient website solution without any additional hardware or software to purchase or use and
you definitely don't need a computer to supply data to your personal website in any way it just connects to your home router and sends the data where ever you tell it to, i have had mine running since may 2015 without any issues at all and i will always keep it as a fall back unit to use in the event if something goes wrong with the newer hardware i have .

using the updateweatherstation.php is a powerful solution to many other things like automatically dump data to a database without any cron jobs as I have been using for a long time now at http://weather34.com

once you dump the data to a mysql you can generate your own charts , create max/min/avg/daily,monthly,yearly,hourly totals to be displayed within this template all sorts of possibilities depends on how creative you want to get.

good morning

unfortunately im no longer using the WS1001 so i cant confirm anything anymore in reference to this model. however i initially just added
a .htaccess mod before my host fully enabled ssl at all methods initially my domain was only SSL but was notified sometime ago that all access ssl is enabled ftp etc.. . here was my snippet i used for a few months .

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^weather\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.weather.com/$1 [R,L]

hope it is of help if not i guess can always try the port 443 ..brian

Thanks for the advice.
But now I have tested and checked for some days, still unsuccessfully.

subdomain solution did not make it work.

I no longer believe my problem is related to the server even though my problems occurred when my webhotel changed owner and the files were moved to a new server.

I have got a friend to put the weatherstation folder on his server. I can run the updateweatherstation.php file on his server and get a Rapid Fire response. And there is "null" in all data in ws1001.txt.

I have changed Server.ini so it points to the friend's server.
I have changed easyweathersetup.php so the template retrieves data from friends server. Still only "null"

The WU icon appears on the console screen after a restart but disappears sometimes.

My template runs firmware 2.2.5
Is it a good idea to upgrade to the latest firmware in this regard?

Good evening Brian,

Thank you for your response. I tried your .htaccess snippet and port 443 but no go and then it struck me that the obvious solution was staring me in the face. Why send the data to an external URL when I running my own server, I just need to use the local name which just happens to be wxserver.

So Server=wxserver.local/pws/ effectively by-passed SSL.

Some tips I have also pieced together from various other discussions: - Anybody who is using a Windows based server for this method. You may have to install ‘Bonjour’. The quickest and easiest way to do this is to install the Windows version of iTunes which includes ‘Bonjour’. If your server is Unix based (macOS or Linux), you should be OK.

I tried it on a Mac Mini (macOS), Raspberry Pi2 (Raspbian) and Intel NUC (Windows 10) and all worked flawlessly. However, I found on the Pi2 I needed to open ports 6000 and 6500 which was not the case with MacOS or Windows which I found rather strange.

Anyway, a solution if anybody needs to use it.

Ian

i dont think i can help you , you never had any issues until server upgrade or change so whatever changed has caused your problem.  unfortunately has i mentioned earlier in the week I no longer have the ws1001 installed but you may recall i edited my server.ini file and connected to your server successfully and generated an updated ws1001.txt .

Hello again.
I hope not to bore you.
I have experimented a little more.
My ws1001 still does not send to my template.
I know nothing about IT technology, - a little more about weather  :-)
But I can do what is in a user's manual  :-)

I'm as sure as I can be that everything is set up properly - (Server.ini, easyweathersetup.php, location of weatherstation folder on server, etc.)

I have now noticed that when the configured Server.ini is installed on the console, my router performs strangely. The computers in the house often lose connection to the Internet, and it is necessary to turn off the console and restart the router.

Is it possible that the problem is in the router. Can the console send something that the router can not handle properly?
There are a lot of settings in the router, which I do not understand the meaning of.

The router is a Tilgin HG1351, which is delivered by my ISP. I have learned that it is possible for my ISP to change settings in my router.

Is there anyone who can tell if the problem may be in the router?

Hello Mogens

Your looking in the wrong place

Go back to your original quote from a few days ago

“I have a problem similar to one mentioned in this thread

My Internet Service Provider was sold to another company, and the other day, all files were moved to another server.
Since then, I have not been able to display my weather page correctly.
No current data is displayed.
The historical data - day, month, year - is still displayed correctly.”

Nothing todo with your router unless you changed that as well , your ws1001  with template up to the point your server changed company .. I would be looking at server.

If you are using the server.ini with two urls in it you can via the console select one or the other

One has no www one has www. Try either other those .

It’s not boring I just can’t check with ws1001 has it is no longer installed here..

Forget about router focus on server ..

Hi Brian,

Downloaded the latest and greatest.  Noticed in one of your online instructions (https://www.weather34.com/homeweatherstation/setupmeteobridge.html), you reference the /MDBFILES/ vs /MBDBFILES.  Something you may want to correct as your .zip does not contain a folder called /MDBFILES.

To my issue.  Rebooted Meteobridge, grabbed latest image today.  Loaded all files, created new DB in Ubuntu, ensured I updated and activated PHPv7.1, tested access to SQL via command line successfully, purged tables, etc...  All good.  Template looks fine except for some reason, forecast is in metric vs imperial.

But the big issue and question is this.  I can't get Meteobridge to connect to http://server/mbridge/mb.php.  If I put that into a webbrowser, I can hit a blank page.  So we know the page is good.  But Meteobridge throws an error. 
Error: Home Weather Station:

Try by IP, same thing.  If I shorten and point to http://server/mb.php, another error, but a different error.
Error: Home Weather Station: <br />

But, I'm getting raw data into my MBrealtimeupload.txt file.  Unsure how that's happening!  The MB is not pushing any data there via any configured Services for http.  Speaking of that, I setup the (3) HTTP uploads, can get to them in a web browser, yet when hitting "TEST" on each one, I'm getting various errors:

STATION CRON
2017-10-14 13:02:27 Error: Read error (Connection timed out) in headers. (no more tries)

ADD TO YEAR
2017-10-14 13:13:22 Error: #!/usr/local/bin/php.cli Couldn"t fetch records (no more tries)

EMPTY
2017-10-14 13:14:45 Error: #!/usr/local/bin/php.cli (no more tries)

My assumption is, MB API call to /mb.php isn't working as the script in there to offload data that will make it's way to the db isn't able to perform.  My db shows the table with all the fields but after the purge, there is no data, which makes sense.

Any thoughts on where to look?

Thanks,

Steve

Good Evening

now adds support for AIR QUALITY INDEX for all versions . it is defined from the lat/lon settings within the template you need to obtain a token key from here http://aqicn.org/data-platform/token/#/
i had planned on using the station id api but seems not so friendly to actually find the station ID unless you know where to look so using the lat lon feature is far friendlier and quicker for setup.*note this service is using the official API and does not scrape from within a web page hence the token key is required.

update also includes http service for meteobridge-api users to utilize the function available in meteobridge itself. very efficient way of calling specific data via api limitations.
in time I will exploit all the advantages of the meteobridge capabilities.

*weather display API will be available in due course I am unavailable from the 23rd Oct to Nov 2nd so hopefully it will be available shortly after that date.

Hello Brian

I saw on our site that weatherflow stations would be supported, I received a week ago the hub and air module (sky is planned for ???)

Is your script mature enough to be released for these stations (via api I guess) ?
I don't minf testing it ..

thanks

Eric

Post by: weather34 on November 06, 2017, 11:09:34 AM
Hello

It’s been done for months but I have been waiting for sky unit to come out of field test period.
When the units are officially released I will release the template in a full weatherflow  variant. Right now releasing a version just for the Air model is not worth it as the features of the wind and rain,uv,solar would be non existent unless you have the sky model as well? But if you want too add on the lightning sensor I have a simple script which would work with existing template.

I suppose I could knock up a simple method to allow the Air model to be displayed as a second sensor for temp,hum,dew alongside existing hardware, how does that sound.

Drop me a pm with your weatherflow station ID.


Just abiding the NDA ..

Hi @,

Damn what's going on?
Why does myqsl no longer work with the latest version of Weather Display today.

Piet
Sadly Piet it is no longer supported.

so before anyone comes to assumptions let me explain honestly .

I have taken this decision because it has become somewhat messy to develop with for weather display software , i contacted brian the weather display developer this morning explaining my decision , however I was open to finding a common ground to resolve but he took the decision to go down the public forum road and look for the sympathy vote .

Over the last few days the weather display api had extra data appearing and a broken url structure causing the loss of some the values towards the end of the url . this caused the template to go out of sync with certain values , I was only aware of these extra values after checking some of the end user wd.txt files and started recieving frequent emails of extra sensors and out of sync data particularly trend data.

Now has he said he sent an email and sent me a screenshot so fair enough but I don't have that email originally sent , so communication breakdown ,but there is a resolving point but no unfortunately its turned into a personal accusation  and a slippery slope to no resolve and pointless rhetorics perhaps like this  . he chose that route , Im quite open minded and have no problems in admitting to I am wrong but its a private email exchange discussion and had room for resolve to go public well there you are no point of return end of project as far Im concerned .

take any judgement you wish but the lack of communication is a fundamental breakdown of any working or development process its just a recipe for a mess and unreliable outcome which thats exactly what happened . Its nigh on impossible to produce anything reliable without some form of communication. Ive always said collaboration equals success and in this case there was none.

So my sincere apologies throw any opinion you want at me at the end of the day it is a hobby to me not an income or a business I have no self egoistic
goals of a user count what matters to me is reliability and something that works , if it dont work I see no point in keep distriibuting something that is problematic.

I will just focus on Meteobridge and Cumulus for the near future and when the weatherflow hardware comes out of field test period I will focus on that.

choice is always yours there is absolutely no opinion from me in what you use what matters is it suits you and works reliably .

dont forget there are numerous templates that work with weather display the original reliable saratoga , lueven,meteotemplate and so on they are all
good alternatives so throw your ideas and encouragement at those .

and the last part of this rhetoric is there are two sides to every story Im not trying to deny any part of the communication breakdown it just wasn't there and thats it sadly.

the first time I was aware of a problem was a post from you about is all being messy and that extra data had been added (whch a user wanted added) and you posted that you had no communication about that, on a public forum

and yet I had actually emailed you that information on the 9th of nov, which i told you in the first communication I have had from you since that time
and you emailed me to say that you do not have that email so I emailed you a screen shot of that email from my email sent box

and now you are going around on a public forum saying that I had broken down the communications and yet I never heard back from you from that email I sent so I could only assume it was Ok to add the extra data etc
the extra spaces in the data are not related to extra data temp/hum data added on the end , and would have been easy enough to fix for those users affected but I was not even given a chance to do that

I have now been asked to remove the support from the software, so sorry to the users who were wanting that support, but that was not my decision

How interesting it all becomes you try and be amicable and explain with honesty yet it gets twisted and you end up with a pile ruthless assumptions. I have no point in anyway insulted brian or actually made any criticism of the software itself . I was not the first to publicly post about this unfortunate situation he did himself half way  through our email exchange. As I said above there are numerous other options out there to use and it didn’t work out , I don’t hold any personal hard feelings it just the way worked and it’s unfortunate.

As for another attemp no chance what is done is done move on use the other templates that fully support the weather display software.

I stand by original comment I have not received any email from brian reference changes to the api and changes were happening as the data was added and a broken url part would not have been found. So make your assumption I’m not bitter it just simply wasn’t happening my fault or his fault what is done is done.

As for prime time your probably completely right 100%.

So sorry...brian

Anyway all is not lost

Can now simply update Weather Display and must place a file called homeweatheron.txt where WD is installed.  :grin:

So there you are if brian wants to distribute the last known wd   version and support it that’s is fine by me but let’s be clear I can not support and will not distribute . He is free to make any changes he wishes to suit WD and you are free to choose wether you want to use it or not .

That was clearly set out in my email originally I no longer wish to develop or support it for WD.

So it’s in his court he decides not me as I said I have no hard feelings one bit .

Brian H and Brian U, your email communications may have been thwarted by a recent weather-watch.com issue with sending to gmail addresses .. see: this post (https://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,65861.msg529121.html#msg529121).  It was fixed on 21-Nov-2017 and likely started with the server outage  (https://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,65817.0.html) around 11-Nov-2017.  If your correspondences were missing during that period, then that explains a 'lack of response'.  Just a theory...

it was a normal email, not a forum PM, and he was getting my emails before
he knows it was not a PM because I showed him a screen shot of the email and it showed the email address it was sent to


Brian U told me to remove it from weather display
and so I did as he told me

but of course I then got emails from users about that
so I made a back door method to still get the updates working, and told only 2 people, and said that was secret
one of those 2 people have then told Brian U about that, and now he is like all fine with that, and says the ball is in my court?

sorry but once burnt like this by him, not again, I have seen this happen to others he has worked with, and seen so many threads he has deleted and started again, I have lost count on this forum and the WD forum, its not possible to work with someone like that who is so unpredicatable, and who only provides enough of the story to make him look like the hero, sorry

Thank you very much for the gorgeous weather dashboard. I've installed it successfully.

However, there were problem with the Forecast and Conditions tab where it won't show data (I put the right WU api key). I also cannot save the setting due to permission problem on setting1.php.

I solved them by modifying permission to www-data with read/write permission to jsondata folder and setting1.php file.

One question is if I would like to swap the webcam board with the other board, which file I should look into.

My own webcam is not connected at the moment as you have probably noticed.

You just need to apply a similar routine for the small image

With the latest version (Feb 22) I am experiencing a problem with the eu alerts. I have homenotification.php configured on the top right. My web server is logging excessive timeouts for this script. Investigation shows that on the first line the script "warnings/get-meteoalarm-warning-inc.php" is being included.

That script calls www.meteoalarm.eu which, at this time at least, is timing out. Now, I have eualerts set to "no" in my config so that call to include this script is, effectively, useless.

I suggest you modify the code as I did to:
Code: [Select]
<?php include('livedata.php');include('common.php'); if ($eualert=='yes') {include('warnings/get-meteoalarm-warning-inc.php');};header('Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8');date_default_timezone_set($TZ);?>

Is there any further development planned for the Meteobridge/MySQL based charts (mbcharts)? I had to hack a couple places to make it work in the 2/22 code drop. I'm considering a total rewrite of it to better exploit the database but don't want to do anything if a major update is in the works.

Thanks for a great looking template!  :-)

hello Dolf

your were not alone Dolf i had endless amounts of emails about the timeouts last week, which for whatever reason coincided with the cold spell over europe last week , was it demand on there server resources i don't know exactly but had toyed with removing the script a few months ago for other reasons where it was conflicting with another script, but I finally got around to removing it from the meteobridge and cumulus versions this morning .

my sincere apologies for not following here much these days very focused on upcoming weatherflow hardware at present and a new project home automation dashboard for a neighbour which is quite cool but took a steep learning curve in terms accessing various data ,template design itself was the easy part ...

only significant upcoming changes and most of it is already implemented is full support for weatherflow hardware in various flavors  of either using their dedicated API or use meteobridge. at present the API method is not included in the template as I need to add extra options to the setup screen to allow the user to choose how the data is served for weatherflow which will either be Meteobridge or API obviously the meteobridge is the optimum choice as the data intervals are updated quicker and selectable , the API output from weatherflow at present is only delivering data output updates at 1 minute intervals ...currently Meteobridge is the only option for weatherflow hardware based on you have both parts AIR + SKY .

thats it so carry on hacking :-) and as always thanks for the feedback Dolf..brian

hello

if you are using meteobridge you need to run the stationcron.php setup via the meteobridge panel see here scroll down to setting up services https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/setupmeteobridge.html

if it is cumulus version check folder file permissions as the forecast automated in that version.
if it weatherflow api version same as cumulus .

ps always provide a url it can speed the proess of resolving very quickly

I have weatherstation database, but my host adds xxxxx_ to the name. So it would be xxxxx_weatherstation. Xxxxx is not my username. Should I edit the createdb.php so it's the correct name? It does the same thing to my username.

Hey Brian,

Sorry to hear you are shutting down development on Home Weather Station.

I have both Saratoga and HWS installed here and HWS is the one I turn to first -- the data presentation is so thoughtfully done.

I totally understand the maintenance difficulties that are arising, though. I have some ideas on how to address those difficulties, and now I might implement them. If I make much progress I'll put my work up for others to poke at.

Thanks again for all your hard work.  :grin:

Good morning

thanks for the compliments however don't misinterpret what I have said , i will continue to iron out any code issues that arise for whatever reasons and just focus on the weatherflow hardware and if any changes arise to meteobridge structure.

you can sit here week in week out adding on additional options and ideas sent in but it has got to a point where there is simply no room in the design and when you add or implement something it starts to look very disorganised and data crammed into anywhere it can.

I point blankly have refused to scrape data from any websites or unofficial api's (I have tried but the performance impact is quite dramatic and i have used https://gtmetrix.com as the tool for measuring differences and impact) just to have and display extra information available from external sources , I always just wanted to replicate personal weather station data from a console in the simplest manner possible using modern css capabilities.

the final end result is shown below keeping the page size sub 300k and having removed some big fat jquery libraries and redesigned them in css,all images using svg and so has shown a remarkable difference overall in performance and end user experience .

so i look forward too seeing your ideas and if they are universal for users to use and not tied specific to one type of hardware etc then your onto a winner and i would happily endorse it no problem. but try to think of other scenarios and trust me there are many otherwise the weather would be pretty boring and acknowledge that there many types of hardware that deliver data in different ways and not forgetting the many server configurations this part surprised me a lot over the last 3 years  and lastly develop on php 7.2 or greater always cross check for https compliance (often perceived as google importance but its not just about google ranking and other google shite also look ahead to HTTP/2 it will be even better in terms of data transfer).

have a nice day and i truly look forward to your ideas.. brian

A lot of people including myself have one of these air quality monitors:
https://www.purpleair.com

Is there any way we could use air quality data from this instead of aqicn.org?

There's an option to have the PurpleAir sensor post data to a script. See the attached screenshot. I'd be happy to configure my sensor to post to a script on your server if you want to take a look at the feasibility.

good morning

 questions

1. what  exactly does the custom option do in your screenshot i.e what format is the output? if it is an option to send data to an alternative server like your own then no problem to do

2. im guessing by some of the info provided on this forum they provide a simple json API , does the APi need a personal key

3. does purple air not send data to other services like breezometer,airvisual and aqicn?

not owning a purple air though thought about it but ive seen very mixed results and at its current cost im skeptical of using a 1st or second generation release i think ill wait till the products mature (hope that dont sound a bit like waiting for cheese to mature) .

anyway whatever info you have please forward on via email via https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

ill see what i can knock up and prefer it to in the end match existing design elements of template and i wont use any scripts designed by others id rather just build something then i can deal with the issues if they arise

have a wonderful day and the weekend has nearly landed ..

Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 on April 19, 2018, 04:11:21 AM
ok thanks for the email i used the google doc info and your ID

just uses a simple php json script.

its color coded accordingly i will polish it off next week and see if I can see other data from other users .

so not owning one I am your mercy on particular values it delivers and what would be displayed , i see other API data from
breezometer,aqicn,airnav there is more data .


anyway look out it for next week im guessing a top module option also would be a good option but this needs to be inserted
to the setup screen to allow non puprleair owners to disable.

many thanks for the quick response .will send along next week. ps its only available for meteobridge/cumulus version of template ..brian

That looks great!

Btw, you can easily get the API ID for any station by clicking on one here:

The ID is is in the url after clicking on a station like so detailsshowing=2812

Thanks a lot for adding this.

Post by: weather34 on April 19, 2018, 06:35:04 AM

it was pretty easy to slot in and was easily able to use existing css structure so ill run it for a day test a few other station and job done i guess

screenshot shows easysetup options and it also populates other air quality data areas like in the area where users dont have solar or uv data hardware also has its own top module box if required.

thanks for idea ...have a good day

onealway.com:8484/weather/

We want to setup a public server as well but we're having a problem with meteobridge:

ok not much i can do to help with hidden servers . perhaps install template on public server send meteobridge data to public server and then on private server installation use the public url for MBrealtimeupload.txt . your private server should be able to see the public url of MBrealtimeupload.txt thats exactly what i do I develop on local server on desktop or laptop then using the live data url for MBrealtimeupload.txt on a public hosted server . 

https://somethingweather.com/mbridge/MBrealtimeupload.txt in both easyweathersetup screens .

good morning

AIR QUALITY for Purple Air and AQICN ..as promised i would get it done and test it out over a the weekend , looked at best way to make it appealing to all without just plopping
numbers in there hopefully enthusiasts and non enthusiast will be able to get some idea from the data.

icons I made in SVG inspired by some design ideas at https://dribbble.com best place to really get some design inspiration , i simply downloaded a SVG face the just added simple elements to the face to reflect a mask and happy/unhappy face from https://icons8.com/icon/42445/user-male. svg icons scale up and down without loss or distortion,pixelating and allow direct editing and you can insert css styles in any code editor.

there are a few other fixes in the downloads for cumulus and meteobridge reference to rainfall display in non metric with two decimal places as opposed to one.

meteobridge has some new API values added to reflect some Almanac data so to use those values a reboot of meteobridge is required if you are not already on VERSION 3.6 (12181).

looks good couple points

info page

meteor showers are calculated locally in livedata.php initial info to build the scripts came from IMO .

where did you get that visits graph html css chart ive been working on i never released it did you scrape my site ? source code reveals my lightning data chart. 

earthquake data is provided by earthquake-report.com what is SOS ?

other than that well done however you will struggle for updates just be aware .

purple air and aqicn scripts were updated this morning some users found some anomalies in using multiple station id and icons and css ,code script were updated . purple air also displays 5 digit info when 100 or more so had to adjust css to cater for the longer number value

Ah, I'll update that.

Yes, I grabbed the code from your site. I noticed the lightning icon in this and several other images:
https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/img1/mbc.png

Since it was in the images, I thought this was something that was available in older versions but removed. I didn't know it was an unreleased feature. I can switch to using a chart from CanvasJS if you'd prefer.

earthquake data is provided by earthquake-report.com what is SOS ?
"SOS Earthquakes" is the organization that runs earthquake-report.com

other than that well done however you will struggle for updates just be aware .
Nah, it takes just a few minutes to merge changes.

purple air and aqicn scripts were updated this morning some users found some anomalies in using multiple station id and icons and css ,code script were updated .
Thanks for the heads up. I've merged the changes.


Btw, there are two changes I made to the purple air integration:
1) I'm averaging the pm25 values from both the Purple Air "A" and "B" sensors. This is what Purple Air appears to be doing when they display the data.
2) I added a function to convert the Purple Air pm25 values to the AQI scale used by aqicn.org

For example, in purpleair.php, I've changed line 164 to:
Code: [Select]
$aqiweather["aqi"]       = number_format(pm25_to_aqi(($parsed_json->{'results'}[0]->{'PM2_5Value'} + $parsed_json->{'results'}[1]->{'PM2_5Value'}) / 2),1);

This is the pm25_to_aqi function:
Code: [Select]
function pm25_to_aqi($pm25){
if ($pm25 > 500.5) {
  $aqi = 500;
} else if ($pm25 > 350.5 && $pm25 <= 500.5 ) {
  $aqi = map($pm25, 350.5, 500.5, 400, 500);
} else if ($pm25 > 250.5 && $pm25 <= 350.5 ) {
  $aqi = map($pm25, 250.5, 350.5, 300, 400);
} else if ($pm25 > 150.5 && $pm25 <= 250.5 ) {
  $aqi = map($pm25, 150.5, 250.5, 200, 300);
} else if ($pm25 > 55.5 && $pm25 <= 150.5 ) {
  $aqi = map($pm25, 55.5, 150.5, 150, 200);
} else if ($pm25 > 35.5 && $pm25 <= 55.5 ) {
  $aqi = map($pm25, 35.5, 55.5, 100, 150);
} else if ($pm25 > 12 && $pm25 <= 35.5 ) {
  $aqi = map($pm25, 12, 35.5, 50, 100);
} else if ($pm25 > 0 && $pm25 <= 12 ) {
  $aqi = map($pm25, 0, 12, 0, 50);
}
return $aqi;
}
function map($value, $fromLow, $fromHigh, $toLow, $toHigh){
    $fromRange = $fromHigh - $fromLow;
    $toRange = $toHigh - $toLow;
    $scaleFactor = $toRange / $fromRange;

    // Re-zero the value within the from range
    $tmpValue = $value - $fromLow;
    // Rescale the value to the to range
    $tmpValue *= $scaleFactor;
    // Re-zero back to the to range
    return $tmpValue + $toLow;
}

The "PM2.5 AQI scale" scale used is found here:

The pm25_to_aqi function is mine. The map function is one I've been using for years. I have no idea where I originally got it.

perhaps send the file along if it of benefit to purple air users
I added the functions in shared.php (I think). There were two places I had to call the pm25_to_aqi function. One in purpleair.php and another in aqi.php. I'll upload the files tomorrow. I just left the office and am on typing this on my phone.
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 on April 24, 2018, 04:01:38 AM
OK NO PROBLEM...ill add in a credit , dont use shared.php that would cause all non use purple air users to try and load the script unless you put if($purpleair=='yes') do something ...

just add the scripts into the appropiate modules then only purple air users will load up .

ive added the script into two modules . purpleair.php and aqi.php works ok from what im seeing using your ID .

not long now and its looking good i been testing another 3rd unit last 3 weeks and its good , pay attention to sensor location and you will be a happy man ive posted what i do over on the weatherflow community forum and the technology is relatively new so  you will see variances but follow the guideline of installation from the weatherflow forums and you wont be disappointed however ignore those install criterias and your on a path to disappointment.

feel,free to email anytime for any tips .. however the last unit was straight out the box up on the mast pole and job done in 10minutes..

no problem most changes are reference to air quality.

side note some really usefull control features were released today for the weatherflow hardware control app by weatherflow hopefully the test period for the app will over by the time you get yours they are really working hard and some of the newer features added today is all based on ideas forwarded by field testers over the last few months . all i can say the third unit ive installed is working flawlessly .

I have been using AQI data from a Purple air unit that is a good distance from me, so its not that accurate. Given the choice I would show the Moonphase instead.

I am looking forward to receiving the Weather Flow units. I hope to run them side by side with my Davis - posting the data via the upper panels of your template.

Have a great weekend!

That will probably create a slight issue for me, since I have the Meteostick plugged into the meteobridge usb port. Perhaps a USB hub would work. I guess the Weather Flow data is broadcast via UDP.

good morning chuck

i use two separate meteobridges i think correct me if i am wrong the meteobridge standard would be limited by allocated memory storage if it was possible to use two different hardware simultaneously.

i simply connect two meteobridge units to 2 different LAN  ports on the router  shown below

edit.. i should have added just drop me an email when you have the weatherflow hardware i will send you a  version to use existing hardware and weatherflow simultaneously using there API basically replicates what i do at https://weather34.com without using two meteobridge hubs

Brian,

Ok. I thought you were using both on your site and that is what I was planning on doing. I assume using the Weather Flow API you can grab the data from the local network as it is being sent to the Weather flow server.

I plan to run it along side my Davis and your template provides a great way to add the lightning detection and make comparisons. Using 2 Meteobridge units could be a little pricey. The hardware is cheap, but the 2nd license would be costly.

Thanks for the info.

i am running both on my site with two meteobridge hubs , if you have two meteobridge hubs then you can do that also but you can run one meteobridge with your existing hardware and then use also weatherflow api for lightning , second location temp sensor etc .

i run wmr300 for south facing temp,dew,hum ,wind,rain barometer then weatherflow for uv,solar,lux,lightning and north facing balcony temperature ,hum,dew ..


either way you can combine your existing hardware the new weatherflow hardware simultaneously.

I may go ahead and setup a second Meteobridge. Would I then just select the Weather Flow Station in Meteobridge and use the same API url that I am presently using for the Davis unit?

Sorry for all the questions - trying to get my head around the data sources.

if you are going to run a second meteobridge dedicated to weatherflow , then simply create a folder called mbridge2 and place a copy of mb.php in there

then in the second meteobridge network panel simply add the url for example https://yourdomain/pws/mbridge2/mb.php

you then have a file weatherflow.txt created every 10 seconds or whatever you set it to

when you are ready and have the weatherflow hardware i can provide all this and simply using a dedicated easyweathersetup screen for this purpose.

this is exactly how i do it on my site .

with meteobridge also if you have lets say two weatherflow AIR sensors and one SKY sensor you can set it up to use all the extra sensor data so you may have AIR sited in a greenhouse or something and another in a field for example.

once you start adding the extra sensor data it really does become easy to use . dont forget the future additional weatherflow module for measuring air quality ... anyway let us know when your ready preferably via email and we set it up its quite easy not much different form existing template setup .

when you are ready and have the weatherflow hardware i can provide all this and simply using a dedicated easyweathersetup screen for this purpose.

this is exactly how i do it on my site .

with meteobridge also if you have lets say two weatherflow AIR sensors and one SKY sensor you can set it up to use all the extra sensor data so you may have AIR sited in a greenhouse or something and another in a field for example.

once you start adding the extra sensor data it really does become easy to use . dont forget the future additional weatherflow module for measuring air quality ... anyway let us know when your ready preferably via email and we set it up its quite easy not much different form existing template setup .

brian

Ok. Now it makes sense. Two separate data streams to fill the template. I think that is what I will do. I already have a spare meteobridge router setup, just need to contact Boris about an additional license.

I will let you know when the Weather Flow arrives - sounds like they are starting to ship.

Thanks again for all of your help and work!

other tips for you chuck if your aware then use them as reminder

1. use AA energizer lithium batteries good for 1 year and as of thursday the hub has been updated with a power save mode so you could get aprox two years out of one set for a piece of hardware..

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Energizer-Ultimate-Lithium-AA-Batteries/dp/B000IWW1G6

dont use duracell or anything else these Energizer-Ultimate-Lithium-AA are tested and proven ..

2. whilst its recommended to locate the air sensor in a shaded environment but be aware this can have an adverse effect on humidity/dewpoint readings during colder winter months where shaded areas get no sunlight and remain damp for longer periods . the sensor is very very sensitive to nearby microclimate.  long periods of siting in a damp area will pegged the humidity at 100% .
get it out in the open in a shield (a good shield design with 4-7 inches of space surrounding to allow for air flow)or use some form of light reflector to protect form direct sunlight .

out of all the ideas i tried homemade this was the best based on finding a balance for lightning and temperature positioning this tracks main station really nicely.obviously if you have a stevenson type then you plop in there..

(http://res.cloudinary.com/brian-underdown/image/upload/v1524922868/fa493dd9b434a22a79c4f090fcc389cbcb56e18f_1_666x500_vpud89.jpg)

3.SKY has to be 100% mounted on a solid pole/mast without any swaying !!   i use a short almost solid plastic mast tubing filled with sand to reduce and dampen vibrations from the building. its a different type of sensor when measuring rain and wind to the traditional methods we have become accustom to. false rain can be an issue if you don't pay attention to the importance of solid mounting . a poorly mounted sky will give you misleading data.

4. birds will find it attractive and probably use it as a perch and possibly trigger false rain , placing a nearby reflective objective will deter them again i do this very effectively.

need any more info join the weatherflow community forum there is tons of information to digest . from apps, software,templates,siting ideas and anything you can find relative.

dont forget they provide each owner with a website display that uses websocket technology at no additional cost with wind data updated at 2-3 second intervals lightning as it happens etc  https://smartweather.weatherflow.com/share/1200 thats mine
running and testing power save mode so wind data is every 10 seconds without power save mode enable its 2-3 seconds


edit just saw your post above after i finished... shipping : yes any day now and more improvements made yesterday...

Great Tips. I have been following the forum at WeatherFlow. I think I have a good spot for the Air. Still trying to decide on the Sky. I have a fairly open area. Thinking about a heavy steel pipe (water pipe) driven in the ground (6 to 7 feet above ground), but it may not be solid enough to prevent vibration - I know the Sky unit is very sensitive. I will have to experiment.

Brian,

Quick question. I have noticed that my shared server has an option in control panel to upgrade to PHP 7.0. I am presently using PHP 5.6.35 and MySQL 5.6.38. Are there any issues with your template during an upgrade? I assume that PHP 7 would provide better performance.

Thanks,

forgot to add, brand new nearby API metar data script written from the ground up uses an official API good for 2000 calls per day , your required to obtain a free API key and the setup panel for template has been updated to insert the API key. this is only meteobridge users does not work or added to any other version.
it also switches metric to non metric accordingly .

there is also option to use for currentconditions as opposed to weather underground api data .

sign up for an api key here https://www.checkwx.com/signup

thank you , yes small subtle changes in color shade can make a vast difference often overlooked in many web designs i get inspired by ideas on dribbble.com .

as for weatherflow hardware patience will have to be a virtue .. im not sure of the exact figure but there is a shipping cue of near 3000 units they are striving to get them sent just shows you the popularity and the pleasant change from the mass bulk produced chinese plastic brands that unfortunately i had one for a couple of years before it was cooked and baked in the sunlight.. but lets be frank the weatherflow package is not a davis vp2 the price point reflects that but sure is a better option over the all in one sub 500 dollar models . ive personally enjoyed the last year of testing there hardware ive seen it mature over the last few months quite nicely and im sure any second   , third generation versions will have all the finer small  things it lacks now .i.e display console ..

ps particularly impressed with the lightning ability ive have a slight personal,modified version it well exceeds 100km detection.

I totally agree. We can't expect it to be the same quality as unit like Davis that cost 4 times as much and has been around for years. Refinement takes time and energy. I do think that the new sensors could be a step in the right direction. Removing the faults associated with the mechanical sensors may foster further development from other vendors.

I have been very impressed with their team and the attention to detail and customer service.

I am looking forward to the lightning detection, as well. Being close to the Ocean we tend to have many storms during this time of the year.

Thanks again for all of your work.

That is an amazing range. You must have it quite a few meters above ground.

after the initial announcement from wunderground services related to their api the template is now reverted back to an original script i used for a short while back in 2016. please do not email me if the forecast are not accurate the template has no bearing or manipulation it simply displays what is retrieved based on your lat lon settings.

has always available via https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/ choose the appropriate version.


please note i am not answering emails until June 26th due to the unfortunate circumstances occurred here after our neighbours roof caught fire and spread to ours causing a lot of damaged and inconvenience beyond belief .

hi all API calls are now curl based now as more and more hosts are disabling fopen/ by default so

example but all are almost identical apart from url..

Great! Just updated and the Dark Sky API is working fine. I did notice one possible bug in the UVI-SOLAR Panel. When the Solar Radiation reaches 1000 W/M2 the Panel bar graph shows it as 1.

Still waiting for the WeatherFlow!

hello fixed , you had not set the language option for the forecast so the dark sky api was returning this

{"code":400,"error":"An invalid lang parameter was provided."}

also corrected your utc offset ... dont use +2 just use 2

good morning

*please note it is only my personal weather station site that is private the download page is available as normal. sorry if i dont reply to all the pm or emails about this ..

if your ip is blocked then i apologize but simply means an ip,address within the same range was scraping my personal weather site every 5 seconds , i recieved a warning email from host of excessive cpu continous useage , after they investigated they came back with ip adresses from europe those were i czech rep and in holland.

simply blocking the ip,adresses is not always sufficient has the culprits can go vpn hopping so hence the password protect. do not take anything personal or assume its anything else , it simply is what it is as stated above.

Brian,

Just uploaded your latest with the AirVisual AQi. The Air Visual API seems to work much better than the previous one. Your re-work of the css on the Hourly Forecast and Forecast Summary (Dark Sky) look great! I did notice that in the previous version the Hourly Forecast time increments were formatted in 12 hr. time and new version is in 24 hour. Not a big deal, but I thought I would let you know.

Best Wishes,

Chuck

The nano looks interesting. It would eliminate the distance issues associated with the present Meteostick and do away with the Meteobridge router. Since, the Davis wireless communicates over much longer distances than the "Stick".

Hello all,

I just put up your template on my Raspberry PIB3+ a couple of days ago. The RPI works fine PHP 7.0.27-0+deb9u1,  Linux,  Zend 3.0.0; MySQL 5.5.5-10.1.23-MariaDB-9+deb9u1; Apache2 / 2.4.25, etc. My Station is the Ambient WS1401 IP hooked up to Meteobridge all working fine as well.

I have a few of questions for you fine people.

1. In the current conditions block I want to use METAR for my area KSBP. I have the API key from CheckWX but it only will show Istanbul, Turkey? Thanks Ryan

2. In the Forecast block nothing is there and it is reading offline. I do have the API key from DarkSky entered in the easyweathersetup.php Thanks Ryan

3. Total rain fall for 2018, 25.4 inches? Where is the template getting this number from?

Here I am on the world wide PI http://bobspib3.com/pws

Put the Weather History section into "Yearly Mode" then click on the Table tab. There's a download button in the top right corner of the table.

I would keep the WUnderground up and running personally. I still look at it on my phone so that I can see the graphs.
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: gand on July 26, 2018, 01:22:24 AM
Hi

Thanks for the proposed solution.

As far as I can see, there is a difference in the data definition, so I can't import data directly from WU to HWS.

From WU:
2018-7-24,27.9,22.4,16.9,22.3,19.2,15.6,97,83,70,1014,1013,11,0,18,0.00
From Jul.txt(mbcharts):
25 Jul,28.6,19.5,23.00,18.00,0.00,0.0,0.0,0.00,1015.80,1014.70,0

Data from WU must be changed before import to HWS. I thought others had the same challenge and had found a solution. There are 2 files pertaining to this, month.txt and year.txt

Hi

In the block the max. gust is displayed, in this case 4.9m/s. The graph shows max gust at 5.6m/s and the same value is in the sql database. The station has reported 4.9m/s, so it is the correct value.

Does anyone know why the numbers are not the same?

hello

ive downloaded your today data and using your realtime data file locally i can see identical to what your reporting however does this happen everyday ?

what is the meteobridge live data panel showing for max gust ?

the chart file only records and displays what is sent to the mysql from the meteobridge at that given time.

so at 01:24 this morning it recorded this

0,1:24,24.2,1011.10,0.00,0,5.6,4.5,0.00,20.90,0.00,284.00,09 Aug,2018-08-09 01:24:26,0

i have think i found thew cause it but would need to test locally for a while. if you can pm your email ? i can send you a file to test for a few days .

good morning MikeyM

was able to fix locally the timestamp , if you download a new version of weatherflow template it should now only reflect the time of the API created data. *note with weatheflow API version the data is only updated at 1 minute intervals this is a limitation of the weatherflow API not template . alternatively to get more accurate and shorter intervals like 5-10 seconds best option is meteobridge as that also offers far more options in terms of historical data , max , min and so on.thanks for getting in touch and highlighting the timestamp issue, also fixed the southern hemisphere for moonphase svg image i.e reversed for southern hemisphere. brian

I have recently setup the Weather34 template for Weatherflow Air and Sky. I understand that due to possible API changes that the template is currently in flux. I do have a couple of comments/questions.I realy enjoy the template and hope that updates will continue in the future.

1. When using Chrome Browser, the battery voltages are located below the battery icons in the temperature section. Works OK in Microsoft Explorer and Edge.

2. I have set up the Darksky API, but do not get any forecasts.

3. I watched the wind module most of today and it never went over 1.0-2.0 mph, while the data from the weatherflow app was showing much higher readings. And, my Weather Display software via the UDP setting had a gust up to 11.6. What am I actually viewing in that module?

4. If Weather34 is viewing data from the Weatherflow API, isn't that set for 1 minute intervals?, But, the settings.php has some settings for less than 1 minute. Am I missing something.

5. I do not have Weatherunderground set up for my Weatherflow unit, are there otherways to get the graphs and to save the data from the API? i.e. mysql

Thanks in advance for any comments/suggestions http://scannorthcounty.net/weatherflow/index.php (http://scannorthcounty.net/weatherflow/index.php)

good morning

thanks for the info on chrome have to say i forgot crosscheck chrome ,anyway have fixed it just grab download and just replace the two css files main,light files in css folder.

darksky can you pm the setup password which you can change at any time later but a quicklook the darksky.txt on your server threw back a forbidden error

UDP versus 1 minute API cant answer that one dont use weather display or have access to its data output .template just displays data received via API.personally the API
is not much use to those used to seeing regular update intervals in seconds .. cant help on this one..

Weatherflow template uses the same files as the meteobridge and cumulus versions and hopefully future change to weatherflow API will have shorter update intervals so as it is now i leave it like that. 

Graphs yes if you have mysql knowledge i can provide a script to dump the received data from the API into mysql database.

chrome fixed screenshot

Looking for HELP getting my template (weather34) for the WeatherFlow station...

  This is the only place I could find that seems to have "Weather34" support ?? Is there a special thread for WeatherFlow template?

    got it setup on my webserver - (PHP7.x)

   I'm stuck trying to get many of the ADMIN setting configured (saved)

  many/most of the paramaters are saving - however once I get down to the weather station ID and hardware they just don't stick!

   what am I doing wrong?

hi cant help much unfortunately, if its on your own server nothing can diagnose .

some often hit enter before completing  all the options before reaching the very bottom if its saving some and not others then something else is strangely amiss because all options are built on same method .

I don't know anything about Weatherflow, but for the general template settings I have heard that someone was having a save issue using Edge.  You could try another browser.

If you know what to put in you can manually edit settings1.php

Enjoy,

i looked at edge a year ago and thought why do they not adapt to full -webkit- support i just dont understand why they release another browser with non standard support so i have never pursued edge compatibility and probably never will unless im forced to use a windows machine .

I had the same or similar problem. Are you using the web based interface vs editing the settings and uploading via FTP? I was using the web based interface in Chrome and it was autopopulating fields when I saved. I changed to IE and the problem was solved. Don't know if that is the problem but it was mine. Andy

Well, I'm more baffled now than before ...

      If I edit the settings1.php file directly - I can get some change in the Homescreen page -- if I then go into the settings admin - again all the fields are populated with the original data that I wasn't able to save...

this is what I want ...

Code: [Select]
$weatherflowID = "4785";
$weatherflowdairID = "13308";
$weatherflowdskyID = "13328";
$id = "KFLNORTH230";
$TZ = "America/New_York";

this is what it keeps changing it back to...

Code: [Select]
$apikey = "fe2ac8fb54e8cf2079a8b30f35cf261b";

latest version of Chrome

I tried Edge -  that seemed to start to work! However even after all my setting were set - it doesn't seem to be connecting to my Weather Station... not the WU nor my WeatherFlow..?

I used IE 11 and it worked for me. make sure you are not signed into your Microsoft account if you have one, and no autofill or autopasswords are enabled.

ok i just added all your weatherflow ID into my local demo using chrome no issues in saving files . i can honestly say 90% of issues apart from my own css mistakes are local run servers.the template is developed on a local server using XAMPP currently PHP 7.2.9 .so i dont know it is very hard to diagnose without some accessible url .

screensot below is using your current data with your weatherflow credentials added in chrome Version Version 69.0.3497.81 (Official Build) (64-bit).. brian

Well I'm currently using my Synology NAS as my server. Never run it before. I'll see if I can poke a hole in my router for external access ...

Everything but the graphs with data pulled from Wunderground stopped updating on the 24th. It also looks like like of the APIs that it pulls from stopped updating on the same fate. My station is reporting fine to Wunderground. I have tried restarting the Digital Oceans Droplet that the site is hosted on. All the settings in easyweathersetup.php don't appear to have changed and look correct.

Suggestions?

If anyone is interested in the weeWX adapted version of the weather34 template, you can find it at the link below courtesy of Ian Steeple. All support questions on this adapted version should be directed to Ian and not to Brian.

https://github.com/steepleian/weather34-Home-Weatherstation-Template-WeeWX-adapted

Here is my web site (https://weather.sathy.us) using this template. The additional benefit of this adapted template is the capability to display CanvasJS charts generated from native weeWX historical reports rather than a feed from the free Weather Underground API , which as many of you know is going away shortly.

Hello, I downloaded this template at the following address: https://www.linksysinfo.org/weather34/CU.zip (last version for Cumulus), I then uploaded all the files to the following web address: http: //lastazionedelporto.altervista.org. I do not have the Meteobridge and I'm trying to publish my weather station data using only Cumulus. I did not understand what other files I need to upload to my site's directory to allow Cumulus to update the data (realtime.txt? .. or something else?). Can anyone help me? Thank you.
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: taylormia on October 22, 2018, 10:26:04 AM
My experience is with weeWX on Linux - not Cumulus. But, both the Cumulus and weeWX templates use the realtime.txt file. So, you have to make the realtime.txt file available to the template and specify that location as a file path or URL in the easyweathersetup configuration page (see below). How you make the realtime.txt file available to the template depends on your setup. In my write up I show how to mount the directory containing the realtime.txt file on the webserver using NFS.

My settings for Cumulus realtime.txt is ../weather/realtime.txt where both /weather and the HomeWeather /pws folders are in my public_html/ root.

Thanks to both for the answers, after putting a file that I called realtime.txt in the public directory of the site, in my web page are shown the data sent by Cumulus but disappears all the graphics of the template, the home page is shown me only a blank page with the data sent by Cumulus listed.
For Paolo: in the template I downloaded, there is no folder called 'weather' or 'home weather', while there is a folder called 'demodata' in which there is already a file called realtime.txt. I uploaded all the template files in my public_html / root but I did not create a PWS folder because I thought it was only necessary for those using a 'Meteobridge' device.

You must create a separate directory ( by expample /pws ) in the eayweathersetup you can use the fullpath to reatime.txt by example http://yourdomain.com/reatime.txt I see you have a freehost most of them dont alllow ftp-ing .txt files are you sure your realtime.txt is up to date (I couldnt find a realtime.txt file on your domain http://lastazionedelporto.altervista.org/realtime.txt gives a 404 error not found
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: Giggino on October 22, 2018, 12:03:44 PM
Thanks Nitrx, what do you mean by separate directory? In my public directory there are no other files besides the template, do I still have to create a PWS folder in which to include all the template files? What do you mean by realtime.txt file updated? Cumulus updates it regularly and I can see the new data updated every minute but at the address http://lastazionedelporto.altervista.org I see them listed on a blank page, if instead I go to http://lastazionedelporto.altervista.org/index.php correctly display the template page with the updated data. The file realtime.txt I put in the folder demodata because in that position there was already one with test data, I deleted that and I created a new file realtime.txt in the same position.
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: PaulMy on October 22, 2018, 12:10:11 PM
If http://lastazionedelporto.altervista.org/demodata/realtime.txt is your live realtime.txt updated by Cumulus then in the HomeWeather settings use the path of ../demodata/realtime.txt

Paul
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: Giggino on October 22, 2018, 12:22:39 PM
Thanks Paul, the path inserted in HomeWeather is correct but I can correctly view the web page with the template and the updated data only at http://lastazionedelporto.altervista.org/index.php if I do not write also /index.php in the address bar of the browser I get out a blank page with the list of data transmitted by Cumulus! ... does not seem a normal thing.
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: PaulMy on October 22, 2018, 12:30:27 PM
Yes, I noticed that the standard Cumulus index.htm shows.  If you don't need index file for any other purpose then delete index.htm so only have index.php and it should start with just http://lastazionedelporto.altervista.org
You may need to turn off uploading of Cumulus standard template files to avoid it showing up again and taking priority over index.php
.

I did as you said .... perfectly solved problem! Thank you so much .... now I have to fix two little things, the forecast section and current conditions are always offline, in the template settings I provided the required API keys ... but today has always been offline.
Then in the template settings it is allowed to vary the information provided in the two small panels at the top, this works but the title of the box remains the same, so it is not appropriate with respect to the information present.
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: PaulMy on October 22, 2018, 01:02:16 PM
It is a while since I last did a new setup.  I think it can take a while (more than a few minutes) for the current and forecast to show.  I see sometimes mine is missing and either with a page refresh or wait a while it comes back.  I presume you have the API correct for WU, Darksky and checkWX

On the top items, make sure the Position item and the Position Title match.  You can add others as options listed below in the settings, and you can edit the Position title to your liking.

Enjoy,
Paul


Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: Giggino on October 22, 2018, 01:39:21 PM
I corrected the articles at the top, for the forecasts I got the API of Darksky and checkWX, but from this morning never worked, I think there is some problem, I will record the station also on WU, so Cumulus can send the data there, I still another problem with charts that are not drawn
Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: PaulMy on October 22, 2018, 04:12:05 PM
It may have changed, but WU was needed for the charts historical data.  I have a couple of older versions (tests) that used MySQL database data for charts so WU then not needed.

For the charts, possibly you could use another WU ID for testing and see if the charts then show up

As you use altervista.org read this on https://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplates/WXwebsite.php

Quote
I have tried altervista.org free hosting and the scripts/template work there IF you change the PHP settings to allow fconnect()/cURL to any external destination -- if you don't do this step then the forecast (weather and UV) and alerts will not work. Depending on your number of site visitors, you may need to pay to extend your traffic alottment of 10Gb/month.

Maybe you have this issue?

good afternoon

if you are running meteobridge no problem only versions i work on these days .if you are you using weather display i would contact wim as he has taken over that version and it is hoped he will have something ready in the near future..

 all other versions pretty much finished only cumulus gets minor updates where css ideas for meteobridge work without any additional adjustments as cumulus version data file realtime.txt never changes.

sorry i dont do one offs anymore,all or any additions has to be available in the meteobridge api source which i would need to liase with boris of meteobridge beforehand to have the extra data added to the api .

no problem erik glad your on your feet again
 2018 is a year i want to forget quickly lots of personal disruption mostly around our property , started after a fire at our neighbours property which spread to our roof top and pretty much burnt 75% of our roof and right at the start of the flash flood and storm season spent pretty much the most of june,july emptying buckets every other night and no fun watching sparks/water come out the electric sockets and light sockets and not to mention the loss of furniture etc due to water ..eventually was repaired/replaced after the insurance bureaucracy got sorted.

my weather station and other home white goods were destroyed after a direct hit in a storm in September and we wanted to move in late October early November but the rhetoric of trade wars affected our local currency and weakened the lira quite badly and made it unviable to go ahead so now thankfully its recovering and looking to purchase early spring and move on to a calmer life .

on the weather station front i bought a new Davis VP2 (outrageous import duty as you can guess trade war rhetoric based on US imports tit for tat but consumer suffers ultimately) and then found a solar radiation sensor for $95 which was brought back for me so no import tax etc.. Really don't know why i didn't keep one of these Davis VP2 a couple years ago i went with a WMR300 which was cheaper but ultimately in the long run cost more .. Davis hardware may be looking dated on the console front but quality and reliability there is nothing in comparison anyone who says to me ambient,fine offset etc needs to look a bit closer on why they cost more..

as for football Besiktas who i follow with a passion sold most of there top players end of last season(knock on effect of trade war rhetoric) and this year has been awful in fact so bad i have seen only one game this season .

so there you go my viking friend :-)

so onto 2019 and take the opportunity to wish you and your family a prosperous new year ...brian

https://github.com/steepleian/weather34-Home-Weatherstation-Template-WeeWX-adapted

*Weatherflow API Version *Discontinued Please use meteobridge version if you have a meteobridge product, it offers more versatile options over the API and faster updates and better history/chart outputs or alternatively try the version for Weather Display below by Wim van der Kuil

*Cumulus Version download via Mediafire http://www.mediafire.com/file/u46g42nwt1sigjr/CU.zip/file

*Raspberry Pi Python Weatherflow console version available via here supported download via by Peter Davis ( Weatherflow Forum ) https://github.com/peted-davis/WeatherFlow_PiConsole

*Weather Display version by Wim van der Kuil  Now Available via wd34.weather-template.com
http://wd34.weather-template.com/index2.html

features and appearance may vary across these versions and requests for additions should go to the individual maintaining these..there are two other versions
not quite ready for release but are based on using the Rasperry Pi .

the only supported versions are meteobridge and the current running beta for NANOSD. these versions are rich in features and additional features are added when time permits( a lot was added to the beta version in December 2018 it now supports 150 types of data variables , whole array of chart data for those with lots historical data with more to come).the current NANOSD beta version has lots of historical options and almanac pop ups for various data .You will also find a version maintained by meteobridge developer built into the NANOSD product  which you don't require any web server it merely runs inside the NANOSD control panel .

Title: Re: HOMEWEATHERSTATION Dashboard template
Post by: weather34 on January 05, 2019, 07:14:43 AM
good afternoon

some recent changes,developments .

Cumulus version is now hosted via the cumulus wiki page and maintained by Ken True of Saratoga template fame and a few others https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/HomeWeatherStationTemplate they collaborated and setup a
github page to exchange fixes,improvements,ideas to keep that version alive you can follow the github page setup by Ken (Saratoga) here https://github.com/ktrue/CU-HWS


Weather Display version is maintained and supported by Wim of Leuven template fame and he has done a great job and basically had to revamp an old 2017 version and get it all working and  I am sure it will get better , this can be followed at http://wd34.weather-template.com/index2.html and at the weather-watch forum https://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,67468

i openly say thanks two both individuals and I couldn't have found any better trusted sources ,combine their knowledge together it means basically both versions are in trusted knowledgeable safe hands .

meteobridge versions went through some changes many new visual layouts and lots of new data ,the beta version has feature rich ability to display an array of historical charts based on how much historical data you have .
lots of almanac data and meteobridge versions now support over 150 different values based on your weather station data .

*tip when setting up your databases make sure the database username has been granted all permissions to
get it up and running once running you can reduce the permissions where needed but without write/insert permissions you will get no data written to the database .

example
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON weatherstation.* TO 'weather';

$sqlgrant = mysql_query("GRANT ALL ON" .$dbname. "* TO ".$username);

there are various methods and ways of doing this either via phpmyadmin or a simple php script file doing a simple
google search "php grant privileges mysql" should return something you can use and adapt to your specific requirements and host configuration.


as of 05-Jan-2019 via https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

meteobridge versions should look like this ....brian

hello good morning

no set to just stick to version 3.2 and reboot to pick up new API structure however some addtional improvements to support the template have been made in the firmware over the last few versions so just try it if it dont work wont affect any other part of meteobridge itself just perhaps have missing values when using this template as it today..

Hi

Thanks for the prompt answer.

I have rebooted an upgraded to MB-07012019 and everything seems fine with firmware version 3.2 of Meteobridge.

One question about a new feature, it would me very nice to have All Times Records from the Meteobridge, maybe in the Almanac or a separate page.

Thanks for the template and keep up the good work.

Alltime records is there in the latest API, currently limited values are viewable under almanac pop ups more will come in the future just adding one thing at a time release it then sit back and see if any issues arise then if ok or issues get fixed move on to the next idea..slow process but only way as its impossible to monitor all possible scenarios so I find users are of great benefit for feedback ..brian

Hi

If you look at the Almanac Barometric Pressure page, it looks like the same day, January 3, has 2 different values for the maximum. January shows 1031.8 (which is correct), 2019 shows 1026.3. Minimum is correct.

good morning

ok nothing major my oversight so i apologise sincerely updated download or just simply edit the barometeralmanac.php




near the bottom of barometeralmanac.php find

 
              <?php
   // year
   
   if ($tempunit=='C' &&  $weather["thb0seapressymax"]>=-999)  {
   echo "<red>",$weather["thb0seapressydmax"] . "</value>";}
   if ($tempunit=='F' && $weather["thb0seapressymax"]>-999)  {
   echo "<red>",$weather["thb0seapressydmax"] . "</value>";}    
   
?>

simply remove the d $weather["thb0seapressydmax"] to read $weather["thb0seapressymax"]

so it reads
 <?php
   // year
   
   if ($tempunit=='C' &&  $weather["thb0seapressymax"]>=-999)  {
   echo "<red>",$weather["thb0seapressymax"] . "</value>";}    
   if ($tempunit=='F' && $weather["thb0seapressymax"]>-999)  {
   echo "<red>",$weather["thb0seapressymax"] . "</value>";}    
   
?>

if your curious of the -999 this stops displaying/recording erroneous data for pressure and other values sometimes ambient or fine offset clones types send -999 when the sensors start failing or loss of contact..
