Weather Display to export data.csv = no VitualVP
« on: June 10, 2018, 11:01:49 PM »
Just a thought but maybe a useful feature for a lot of us...

Weather Display exports a csv file every minute that could be used by VWS in station-less mode so people could run VWS and WD at the same time without the need for VirtualVP?

I have used VWS as long as WD and still use Image salsa that uses VWS. Also, due to VirtualVP being forgotten, VWS disconnects for me daily from VirtualVP. that is the reason to try to find a solution to syop using VirtualVP. I know some people may say why would WD developer even consider this? don't know why, can't answer that  :wink:. But imagine a "publication" option in the control panel that one could easily enable this?  :wink:


I was able to create a file with current WD tags but hit a road block with how some data is formatted by WD and is not usable in VWS. For example, the month of June is "6" in VWS and "06" in WD. see the two examples below...

csv file created with WD tags:
1.01,2018,06,10,14,45,01,7.7,7.0,296,28,13,84.3,100.0,29.667,2.19,0.00,0.00,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0.26,0,881,100.0,0,95,40,0.000,+2.4,0,-0.023,0,0,0,0.00,2.19


VWS generated data.csv:
1.01,2018,6,10,14,44,0,6,7,269,28,13,84,100,29.67,2.19,0.00,0.00,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0.26,0,881,100,82,95,40,0.00,2,1,-0.02,0,0,0,0.00,1.31

Wow, that would be great! The format is listing in the manual with is a local PDF. I can't find a copy online to link to. Here are screen shots of the details. I've also list the file VWS creates so you know what format the data is in.

VWS daily.csv:
1.01,2018,6,10,14,44,0,6,7,269,28,13,84,100,29.67,2.19,0.00,0.00,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0.26,0,881,100,82,95,40,0.00,2,1,-0.02,0,0,0,0.00,1.31

Wow, some how missed that option!  :D That's great its already in WD! thanks

But I do have the month and year rain option checked and WD doesn't seem to include it. VWS's data.csv file has 41 fields and the WD generated has 39! I wonder if this will matter? But VWS will expect Yearly Rain in field 41.
Can you investigate that? thanks for your time with this!

Attached is a file with a "top-bottom" copy of both files if that helps:

Isn't that the month and year right after the version?

WD 1.00,2018,6,11,
Sorry, mistake in previous post...  there is an option to include month and year rain!

Just to report back... I have had this configuration running for more than 3 days now and it is working well. I had to reset VWS rain total after the change to Stationless. But yea I'm glad to finally not have to rely on VirtualVP.

Thanks Brian!!! Your help and continuous development on Weather Display is very much appreciated!!!  :D

someone else was needing this, but it looks like I need to add the same to end of the data2.csv file, yes?

Well for the "Stationless" setting it only requires one file. If I remember the data.csv is the native units and the data2.csv is for converted units. I could be incorrect on this.

FWIW here is the VWS manual: http://site.ambientweatherstore.com/vws/vwsmanual.PDF
