@all 
Choices . . . will be optional  (based on a setting in easyweather) in the menu. 

Sounds great  :D

For more trivial feedback see typo below.

@all 
Choices for
  • tall<->wide
  • theme light<->dark<->or other colors,
  • round<-> rectangle
  will be optional  (based on a setting in easyweather) in the menu. 

The light them will be have a few "cousins" like light-grey" or "beige"

See screenshot,

Hi!
Both look really good.
But should I choose,
It would be wide in dark theme with rectangle.

Well, anyone can choose as he/she likes.
I will fine-tune both "round" and "rectangle" as it seems a draw.

The themes (aka colours) is an easy one as there is only "one white and one black" but an "infinite number of greys", better call it  "a lot" because the poor quality of most monitors.  And then we still have all the colours.

I will test  the "green" colour first thing tomorrow, because I look forward to use the HWS-template as the dashboard in my own personal weather-website.

I like the "grey" light theme - hope Dale has seen it?

Status of the  "Wish-list"

I tried to find all "requests for enhancements"  in the different topics about the HWS-template.
Not implemented yet:
  • Remove the need for SQL as it is only one table, not a full DB Done
  • Add more sensors such as "soil temp/moist"
    More info needed: which sensors, how do we get the data, what should be displayed
  • More  small blocks in top row: extra temp/hum/apparent, indoor temp/hum/apparent,  UV
  • Move clock  up to top "rail"?Done
  • A snow total block.
    More info needed: how to upload the measurements (WD-tags), which other weather-program support this?
  • All blocks should operate on all places.
    Postponed: The October release will have no "fixed" choices.
  • Wind run to one decimal place?
    More info needed ? A screenshot would be helpful
  • All relevant decimal places shown in full, even if zero? For example 6.0 (if appropriate) and not just 6Done
  • Graphing of UV and or solar ( if using database)?
    Postponed: For WU solar is available, not UV. Use of database will be changed shortly.
  • Ability to display lighting data from a Weatherflow Air sensor instead of Nextstorm.
    Planned for the July release
  • Display changes to apparent (feels like) when windchill calculation is not valid.
    More info needed
  • UV and moon clock could be changed according to clock. I.e. UV on daytime as long as sun is up and then switch to moon phase.

Currently in the April/July releases:
  • Remove the need for SQL as it is only one table, not a full DB
  • All relevant decimal places shown in full, even if zero? For example 6.0 (if appropriate) and not just 6
  • Adapted themes to more easily change the colours and display 1 extra colour-set
  • Move clock  up to top "rail"
  • Icons in Temperature block removed
  • A  setting  to deactivate the change to daylight saving time
  • Weather alert/warning for Australia
  • Extra choices  for the last two main blocks in easyweather
  • USA alerts.weather.gov can use multiple codes i.e. CAZ095 and CAC029, as this is standard in Curly scripts
  • Rain rate units are  shown in the Rainfall block.
  • US flag for language is already available and can be renamed from us.svg yo uk.svg
  • Solar / UV link at bottom of current conditions block, can de done in the block-defintion file

Wim, in reply to your requests for more detail/info:

Attachment WDold.png (taken just before its retirement!) illustrates points 3, 4 and 7

3. Extra temp/hum and indoor temp/hum small blocks shown: WD clientraw has data for up to 8 extratemp/hum sensors, WD API has data for 3. Unfortunately, extratemp max/min data is in clientrawextra #594 - #609.

4. Clock up to top rail, because everyone wants a clock and it's a waste of a small block. Still relevant if you plan to produce more small blocks.

7. Wind run to 1 d.p.  WD clientraw gives wind run (km) to 1 d.p., which is converted to the required units, but line 59 of wind_gust_block.php has round($weather["wind_run"],0)

Other screenshots illustrate point 8

1. temp1.png shows temp of 9.0, because I modified the script. It used to show, e.g., just 9. I have modified all temps everywhere, F and C, indoor and out, max and min, to show the first decimal point even if zero. (But I've gone the other way with pressure and UV because I only record integer values.)

2. rain1 and rain2.png show modified and current treatment of rain zero figures. (I forgot to ring the 18.0 vs 18 values for May.)

Hope some of this is of use, even though I can only refer to WD clientraw or API.

Outstanding wishes list https://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,67675.msg546274.html#msg546274 updated

Most important change is IMHO the removal of the SQL table.  As the data is in the "result.csv" file,  there is no advantage in storing the same information in a SQL table. So all setup of a DB is removed.
The 23:55 cron-job will not read the SQL table to get the min-max's of the day, but will use the "result.txt" file

Check the  alpha-demo at http://wd34.weather-template.com/pws07/  .

Are the max and min temp times swapped?

And clock seems to be an hour different (at GMT+1) to block update times?

Corrected

The clock runs in no_DST mode. So it displays the standard time for Brussels = UTC+1
Normally a user who wants that, will upload his/her data also in standard time.

The data displayed on the test-site is not my own data but from a user which uses weathercat and which  uses normal DST.
I have to test all combinations.

I will move to normal  time again shortly. Done

===
There are still the round  and tall options on the URL
All blocks are flexible and adapt to the width of the screen.
The graphs also adapt nicely. They do not have that much data at the moment as the non-SQL is only active from this afternoon.
The tables used for listing forecasts and earthquakes do not adapt at the width nicely!
So I have to make the most important items to the front.

Pressure reading now has thousands comma as well as decimal point. . . a number_format() problem?

Thanks, I did not see that as my test-file had 992.2.
The error is caused by moving from round to numberformat.
I will  correct that.

@all
I am off for a 2 weeks vacation trip without decent internet. Just my phone/iPad for use in some hotels.
So answering posts will be minimal and in the evening (UTC+3) only .
Alpha/Beta release
The final beta July release is running at https://www.weerstation-herent.be/pws07/
Loading of the main window is far quicker and the scripts should run fair enough on smaller webservers also.
Availability second week of June.
Missing fields
The livedata script => https://www.weerstation-herent.be/pws07/w34_livedata.php?sce=view 
Attached a pdf of used fields in the july release, not all weather-programs deliver all fields, the "n/a" is used instead. All  the ones on the pdf are supported / used.
Fields names are changed to be more consistent, temp-field-names will change.
Extra fields
Extra-temp/hum and soil-temp/moist will need an extra upload file using FTP, this will be finalised when I am back home on June3.
An example from a Cumulus fileformat:  | HWS-field-name | field-type | tag for weather-program
Code: [Select]
|tempActExtra1|temp|<#ExtraTemp1>|!
|tempActExtra2|temp|<#ExtraTemp2>|!
|humiActExtra1|hum|<#ExtraHum1>|!
|humiActExtra2|hum|<#ExtraHum2>|!
All normal weather-field-types and also text, logic, data-time will be supported.
So users can add their own fields, use them in extra scripts, use the translation files for the descriptive texts.

I think you can get uv_max from WDapi too, at #53.

Have a good vacation  :)
