New version of Leuven-template available
« on: October 06, 2013, 09:15:32 AM »
I like to introduce here the latest version of a complete template set to be used with Weather Display and consoleWD (for RapsberryPI): the Leuven-Template. Being fully multi-language, multi unit, this template set is now used by more than 50 sites (as I am aware of) and is used in the US and Europe. From October 23 the download will also support Canada.
The template includes forecast and warnings pages for local suppliers (f.i. NOAA or EC) but also from World-wide suppliers as Met.No, the Norwegian Weather organization, sometimes referred to as YrNo (which are actually two different organizations).

The template can be very easily adapted (CSS) for colors, menu placement and background photos. It can also use a different color / background based on the current weather conditions. The start-page can be heavily customized also. A subset of the possible adaptions can be done on the fly. Please try menu choice: "Customize" in the template menu examples below.

A mobile version of the template is built-in. If the template code detects a mobile device the user is automatically redirected to the mobile version. If needed the visitor can switch back to the full version and this choice is remembered for a future visit.

If  the template has to be used in a "Joomla"  type environment, one can customize (via settings): if the menu, the headers and or the footers should be displayed inside the "joomla" wrapper.

Demonstration:
Europe: http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/weather2/index.php?p=10&lang=en&wp=WD
US: http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/northam/
Canada: http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/weatherCanada/

Documentation and download: http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/
The documentation is in English (and Dutch).
Supported languages included in the download are: English, French, German and Dutch.
Users already translated the language files to Romanian, Finnish, Italian, Swedish and these files are available on request. 


All information, downloads, demo after 2015-04-29:  http://leuven-template.eu/index.php

Probably their are language errors as Dutch is my native language. So for every language (including English) there is a language file which can be changed to get rid of the errors. Or to use a better wording, if you prefer.

Please be aware that these sites can work with different weather-programs. So every few days I change the default weather-program for testing purposes.
Supported weather-programs  are WD,  consoleWD,  Cumulus, WeatherLink, Meteohub and Meteobridge. It is also extremely simple to test/use/switch to another weather-program. All scripts are the same and all uploaded tag-files are stored in a separate folder for every weather program. So for the three sites mentioned above, there are four weather-programs uploading to the same site and the selection which weather program should be used is in the last characters of the URL.  (&wp=WD  or &wp=CU a.s.o.)

All comments and remarks to improve the template set and other scripts are welcome.

Wim

NICE, but I would prefer a wide screen version.

you can set the wide of the template on any size you want using the settings. Some use 900px, others 1200.

Thanks Wim, i really like your templates and how easy they are to customise.  :D


I do have one request - Is it possible to ad the UK Met office weather to the front page?


Here's My customised version of Wims templates for anybody who's interested -http://www.nantwich-weather.co.uk/ running WD console for Raspberry PI.

A new version of Ken True "Global Mesonet Page" is available.
Discussion: http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=20865.0

For users of the Leuven-Template I adapted the scripts to run nicely inside this template environment including multi-languge support.

Download http://leuven-template.eu/downloads/global_map.zip

All information, downloads, demo after 2015-04-29: http://leuven-template.eu/index.php
Succes, Wim

Thanks Wim.  Seems to work well.

One small problem though, cluster marker image is not accessible.  There seems to be a location error:

<img src="sarGlobalV3/MESO-images/m1.png" width="25" height="25" alt="cluster marker image">

Yes, i saw it when I was testing just now for a Canadian problem.
The upload is refreshed.

Download again or change the sarGlobalV3  to glo, if you can search for them. It is on 3 places.

Succes, Wim

The beta version for the Dec 31 release is on line for:[/s]

All information, downloads, demo after 2015-04-29: http://leuven-template.eu/index.php

Whats New:
1.  Adaptable startpage. In the current release the startpage (menu choice "current weather") is adaptable on a few points such as which forecaster, yes or no soil info, and an extra YoWindow gadget.

Release 2.40 offers more and different components that can be selected and put in any order om the startpage.
The menu choice to view current available components is the second one on both demo sites.

2.  WiKi. The documentation is no longer included in the download. All current release pdf-documents could already be read on-line. I am nearly finished rewriting everything and putting it in a  WiKI: http://wiki.leuven-template.eu/doku.php   And yes, it is draft typing. But before the end of December I have everything spell-checked. And as Dutch is my native language please be kind about the English version as long as it is understandable.  In future releases the WiKi can be downloaded also. It does not need SQL. 

3.  Test of support ticketing system.On the demo- and WiKi-sites a pop-up support form is available if things are still unclear. Also the http://leuven-template.eu/?lang=en website is created to improve the response times and gather all  support type activities in one place . It also uses a different provider as the one for the demo-sites.

====

For those who want to start testing the Leuven-Template, the download is "finished". So better use the 2.4b release if you start from scratch.

In January I will write a conversion doc for current 2.3x users.

Wim

Thanks for this!

The Wiki already made me correct an error I had on my Steelseries display.
