weather34 for WeatherDisplay - Wish List
« on: January 07, 2019, 08:19:33 PM »
I congratulate Wim and his collaborators on the new version of weather34 for WD. I had been wondering how long* I could keep my old X5 version (with WU API) going!

I do have one or two suggestions for a wish list, feel free to shoot them down:

More options for small blocks in top row: extra temp/hum/apparent (to be user-named), indoor temp/hum/apparent, standalone UV (maybe standalone solar, cloudbase, max-min wind?). The "Advisories" small block should be optional, too.

Clock could be moved up to top "rail" to allow personal selection of more small blocks to be shown

Allow easy editing of small block headings (including colours) in easyweathersetup

Make more choices available in each drop-down setup menu for the last two main blocks (so that the last block does not have to be Moon or AQI)

Overall, if the user can be given more opportunity for customisation in easyweathersetup he will not need to edit individual scripts that may get updated.

* Old WU API finally died today.

From a post in the main w34WD thread:

You do not need an WU API-key. Your own data was always available without any key, your station ID is the only id needed.

I've often wondered how one could display previous years' data in a WU graph. It would be nice if the graph pop-ups under each block could do that, maybe with an "almanac" button where one could choose the back year?
It's meant to be fun. . .

I posted this in the other thread but, I'll repeat it here to get it on the list.

 In the alerts.weather.gov version, would it be possible to have the ability to add multiple codes i.e. CAZ095 (Kern County Mountains) and CAC029 (Kern County) which is roughly the same area except the zone code CAZ095 could take in a larger area and parts of several counties?  The reason being able to add multiple codes is that the NWS could issue an alert either for the zone or county depending on the type of alert and affected area.  Another good example of this is in Kansas where the counties and zones are the same area.

Wim,
Could you look at the possibility of updating Brian's old WD/WXSIM release. I am still using it with success but the main module (excluding forecast) has not been updated since its last release of approximately one year ago. If you need the files I would be glad to send them to you.

Can you identify a source for that?

I can not upgrade the complete release. I started with the 2017 WD version.
But I can integrate the WXSIM block in the forthcoming release.  I was not aware that there was a wxsim-forecast block from weather34.
I know there are individual users who made one. This one seems to use the plaintext parser from Ken True / Saratoga.
Can you make  a zip, preferably from the complete folder.

Wim

maybe here

https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/493966f9-f683-4e56-8fa6-8799999c00bd

As my native language is not English, maybe the links to the warning/forecast-data got lost in the translation.

This is an example of the data source I am now using for Canadian users of the Leuven-Template.
https://dd.meteo.gc.ca/citypage_weather/xml/ON/s0000646_e.xml
It contains a detailed hourly forecast, daily text forecast,  almanac data, current conditions  and warnings, no API-key needed.
This data is available in English and  in French, I think for most of Canada.
You can check the 3 demo forecast-pages using this data at https://www.weerstation-herent.be/wsfct4/
When there are no warnings for the demo area, they are not shown.

I do not know if the data is reliable, as there is only 1 Leuven-Template user from Canada

If this xml contains correct data it can be used in the HWS-template for WD also, if there are multiple users interested in it.
It will not make it to the top of the wish-list if only  one station wants to use it,

Wim, so far, other than myself, two other users (lgRich, blainec) have asked for weather alerts/warnings for Canada.  :wink:

But still, it should not be on the top of your wish-list ... maybe at the third or fourth position...  :)

As you can see, there is currently 1 script for:  all graphs WU +  SQL && temp + baro + a.s.o.
The three AQ scripts will also grow into 1 script.
I will try to create one warning script for EU ,  NWS and EC
The more users for 1 script, the more change we have to iron out the bugs.

Wow, Am I the only station in Canada that has the template ?  ( https://weatheryyc.com/weather28 )

The data comes from a reliable source (environment canada)
