« on: February 05, 2020, 02:36:32 AM »
Weather34 MB-SMART Standalone Console/Tablet Version Release Version 2.0

New standalone very slimmed down version of Weather34 MB-SMART for Meteobridge NANOSD or Meteobridge Pro
** (Not compatible with TP-LINK type or Meteohub )

Primarily designed for use on low cost tablets be it old iPads , low cost OEM Android tablets .
old iPads can be found on sites like eBay for around $50 especially the old iPad mini which makes a perfect standalone console
alternative to have as a permanent display.Alternatively you can buy a very low cost Plastic chassis type OEM Android based tablets from China for around $36 plus shipping/local import duty I have 1 at the moment and two on the way  .
The template has three easy steps to setup and uses the in built Weather34 API in the meteobridge software.
further information found here on three easy steps to setup and forget .
Slimmed down setup screen is accessed via the bottom left blue settings icon which you can set your password and a few other preferences.

The footprint is very small and the download is less the 900kb ! 
some screenshots below highlight some of the features and it is all about your data not iframe from third party its all about what your
hardware is sending. 100% compatible with Meteobridge NANOSD and 95% Meteobroidge Pro( where forecast from console is not available).
Supports optional Purple Air Quality
Displays Charts for Today,Month,Current Year(optional previous year i.e. 2019)
Designed with CSS/SVG no low resolution gifs,jpgs,png etc .
Github Repo available to those that use a GITHUB app to pull updates.
Special thanks to Chuck,Ron(K1TTC),Lars,Paul W,Daniel,George and many others as Im terrible for remembering names on the meteobridge forum for collaborating over the last two months.

download via https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/weather34-standalone.html
or Github https://github.com/weather34/Weather34-MB-SMART-Console

support is available as and when I am available no email goes unanswered just sometimes need to digest what is being asked or I am pre occupied..

supports 6 languages with no further plans to extend .
It is a basic layout purely for displaying your weather data it is not designed for scraping radars or other third party data ..
Works in 3 column landscape mode , 2 column portrait mode , or single column mode for phone devices.
Displays various notifications based on realtime data can be turned off.

3 rules that were stuck too and never far from thought ..

1. The 5 second rule where the user finds what there looking for....

2. Minimalistic  if a design has multiple visualizations over congested information , it will be crammed with too much information to digest and it becomes not much use to anyone outside your hobby ...

3. Emphasis on Architecture  the layout is important for the success of it being useful...

good morning how are you ? long time no hear..

for the time which type of server are you using ?  filemtime is all it is reading basically the time the file was last updated.

basically it is just this

Code: [Select]
$dayfile=date('Y');$forecastime=filemtime('../weather34charts/'.$dayfile.'.csv');echo strftime("%A %d %B %Y %l:%M %p",$forecastime);?>     
however it may be the strftime giving you the anomaly so I could simplify it to just a numbered date and not use a worded translation

if you would like be setup for auto update just send me a pm its a painless hassle free way of staying upto date

for example
these UK users get auto updates

Brian if you have a look at https://www.ilfracombeweather.net/console2/consolecharts.php the left hand side bottom on Chrome browser look strange

This is using the  latest update

good morning you have a new PM .. should be fine now.. and I adjusted the update time to use standard php date() to see if that helps as it may be strftime causing you an issue but I am not 100% sure as I can't reproduce the same output using strftime..
