Ok the data is updating as well as the graphs.  Looks good. Are the menus supposed to work?

For the first time I have graphs updating in WD Client, running under Broadway.  The debug window works and I can exit from the web browser session.

Exciting stuff, many thanks Brian  :lol:

Here is a simplified set of instructions for anyone else who wants to try WD Client:

1)  In Ubuntu, open a terminal window and type in:  sudo broadwayd  :5

2)  Then in another terminal window, where WD Client is, type in:  sudo GDK_BACKEND=broadway BROADWAY_DISPLAY=:5  ./weatherdisplayclient

3)  Then open a browser window and point to:  http://127.0.0.1:8085

Note that you do need to have web sockets available in that browser (if using chrome then google how to make sure that is enabled).
If using another PC on your LAN to view the Broadway session, replace 127.0.0.1 with the IP address of your PC running WD Client.
