Running WD Live in the cloud / container
« on: January 23, 2019, 03:04:28 PM »
Hi. First time poster. Have dug into the archive and can't find an answer to my question so asking the hive for their thoughts.

I run one of the most popular weather websites on the US west coast - OB-KC.com. The site has been up for 10 years and WD Live has been central to the UX (see attached screenshot). What seems like a simple site has over 20 moving parts (software and hardware) and has required a lot of maintenance over the years. As such, I am rebuilding the site to eliminate the on-site computer.

Using an IP data logger, I am now dumping WX data directly into my router and onto the net: https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KCASANFR99

I can access this data via API to parse clientraw.txt. The question is, has anyone tried to run Weather Display Live in the cloud (AWS or similar) or using a container / virtual server like Docker?

Thoughts on how I might do this?

Thanks, Hugh
