Title: *** closed*** HWS Template (WD34) Wish List
Post by: bitsostring 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?

WU Alamanac and keyless own data access may be a thing of the past (https://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,67494.msg541928.html#msg541928)??

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.

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.

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,

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)
Title: Re: weather34 for WeatherDisplay - Wish List
Post by: wvdkuil on January 26, 2019, 04:42:56 PM
The 3 weather-warnings for the April release are more or less finished. They are tested at the demo site
For Europe the Meteoalarm.eu page is scraped as there is still no complete RSS-type feed.
For Canada the Environment Canada city forecast is used as it includes the warnings and we can reuse the forecast data later.
For the US the complete set of Curly scripts is used AS-IS. No modifications needed. Just install and configure if you are not already using those scripts.

The small alert-box on the right of the HWS-Template will turn to the color of the warning and either display a small warning text or "multiple warnings active".  Plus a link to the detail page.

I really like the w34 template and aside from weather statements/watches/warnings being highlighted on the page with a link to the actual text, I can't think of anything missing right now.  I like the small, compact nature of the page with everything visible and updating on the fly.  Simple and elegant and all weather...thanks for your work on this project Wim.

A reflection:
Is there at least one website in Australia which uses these scripts as its prime website?

You  yourself have a Saratoga website http://www.micklehamweather.com/ as your prime site.
All visitors arrive there. It has a link with flashing “new” to a weather34 website.
But that link http://www.micklehamweather.com/pws/index.php points to another older version.

I am spending 4+ hours a day to salvage the abandoned scripts for WD users.
Seeing only questions from non-users, I think that if no one wants to use them, I should quit adding new features and code.

If there are no real users in Australia, the answer to another 10-20 hours work is “why”

I have been running my site using the saratoga template for a number of years now and my ultimate plan is to switch to using this template as the primary site (it's a great/simple looking design), however I haven't thought or worked out how I might go about doing this yet.  People who view my website still like some of the features in the current template, so when I do make the switch, I would keep the saratoga template available as a secondary site.  So for now I have left it as is, with only me knowing/viewing the my Weather34 site while I tinker and learn.

My question was more in hope than anything.  Totally understand if there is too much work involved.

Personally I think you are doing a great job with these scripts and I appreciate all the effort you put into this.

Just wondering, what is the advantage of using and old version and not using the new "HWS-template for WD"-version which urgently needs users to  test and report errors?

Without an active user-base any script, so also this version will fail to survive.

The link to the older version has been there for a quite a while (maybe a year or so), so it is not technically 'new'!

To be honest with you I didn't think to update the link to the new WD version (just forgot about it really) - I will look to do this hopefully later tonight.

The Demo site now reflects a Canadian user.  I try to test the new EC alert- and forecast-scripts.
The EC scripts display the original forecast data in French and English only.  All visitors which choose another language, will see the English version.
I did not include the language translation on purpose for now as I can not find the documentation of all texts used. English forecast:
Quote
Tonight
Cloudy. 40 percent chance of flurries early this evening. Clearing near midnight. Wind becoming northwest 20 km/h early this evening. Low minus 31. Wind chill minus 30 in the evening and minus 43 overnight. Risk of frostbite.
Monday
Mainly cloudy. 40 percent chance of flurries in the afternoon. Wind up to 15 km/h. High minus 23. Wind chill minus 43 in the morning and minus 31 in the afternoon. Risk of frostbite. UV index 1 or low.
French version
Quote
Aujourd'hui
Neige intermittente cessant en mi-journée. Nuageux par la suite avec 30 pour cent de probabilité d'averses de neige. Accumulation de 2 cm. Vents jusqu'à 15 km/h. Maximum moins 22. Refroidissement éolien moins 30 le matin et moins 35 en après-midi. Risque d'engelures. Indice UV de 1 ou bas.
Lundi
Généralement nuageux. Quelques averses de neige débutant en mi-journée. Vents jusqu'à 15 km/h. Maximum moins 23. Refroidissement éolien moins 43 le matin et moins 31 en après-midi. Risque d'engelures.
As the texts seem free formatted I will leave it with English and French version for now.  The keywords and short-forecast texts probably are documented  somewhere. Ample time to find them before the official release in April. As always comments are welcome.

Regarding the downward arrow under the temp, is it possible to have that actually report Temp Rate? Yesterday we had a cold front move in and my WD indicated a temp drop of -5.8F/hr, yet the console pic below indicated -1F. What does it actually mean? It always show either +1 or -1F. Thanks.

Problem is known, the temp-rate is either 0, -1 or +1
There is an update (somewhere in the other topic), attached, which only displays the arrow and skips the value.

Probably you forgot to unzip as the current version on your server https://www.weather911.net/pwsWD/w34_livedata.php?sce=view does not has the change from the zip.
Your current version:
Code: [Select]
$weather["temp_trend"]          = $wd[143]; // -1/0/1the new version when you unzip it
Code: [Select]
$weather["temp_trend"]          = (float) $wd[99] - (float) $wd[90]; # 2019-01-22  replace [143] which is login not value
IMPORTANT When you want support it is common decency to include a link to your site. Poeple who want to help have to see what is happening in the scripts.

So would you be so kind to include the link to your site in your avatar-block. That is the the block on the left of every post you do.  The small globe should lead to your index.php  If there is a specific page you want to discuss about, always supply the full link.

Most persons on this forum are not clairvoyant, sadly.

Unless I missed it I would like to see this function added...

I have earthquake data displayed top row box 3 (webcam in main window bottom row middle box).  If I change to show earthquake data in main window instead of the webcam, when I click on that box it pops up a window showing multiple recent earthquakes.  Could this function be added to the top row box, so when clicked, it brings up that same pop up window?  I want to keep the webcam but I also would like the ability to bring up the recent earthquake pop up.

The top blocks have no room to add links. Adding would need extra room increasing the height further. The whole idea is that this template should fit on an iPad without scrolling.
But I added the earthquake to the current-conditions blocks.  Current-conditions only have a metar pop-up, so there is room.

The July release will have no "fixed" choices. All blocks will operate on all places.
But for the April release I adapted the easyweather script so that those two blocks have the same set of  choices.

Thank you Wim!
April release already covers my most urgent needs.
What would be nice was if UV and for instance moon phase could be changed according to clock. I.e. UV on daytime as long as sun is up and then switch to moon phase.

Wim, another item on the wish list: A switch (check mark) to activate (or deactivate) the change to daylight saving time (I really, really hate that useless change of time  :angry4: ).

From what I have read, the EU is studying the possibility of eliminating the unnecessary change to DST.

I am in British Columbia (western Canada) and there are good chances that DST might/will be dropped next year if the western US states (Washington, Oregon and California) get authorization/consent from their federal government.

are you talking about wind direction
as that is what I thought you were

people, you need to be very clear about things, otherwise we can only guess
Title: Re: weather34 for WeatherDisplay - Wish List
Post by: bitsostring on March 15, 2019, 11:34:21 AM

That never occurred to me, AFAIK it is not reported to 1 d.p. (Wind speed/gust is already shown to 1 d.p., even if zero.)

No, I meant temp and rainfall - although rainfall is difficult when you need 1 d.p. for metric and 2 d.p. for imperial. (I have been experimenting with number_format ()  :?)
Title: Re: weather34 for WeatherDisplay - Wish List
Post by: Weather Display on March 15, 2019, 06:15:57 PM
as you had not added a C or F after the ° it looked you were you refering to wind direction value
and so hence the confusion
and hence why I say people need to be more clear, as others have said, we are not mind readers  8O

I believe Feels Like, Wind Chill, & Heat index are not the same as apparent.

currently my temp 37.8 F, Wind Chill 36, Apparent 33.3.   Also, should it have switched to Feels like since the temp is above freezing?

That page is on my ToDo list.

But (all) links currently in your menu, such as https://www.loweprofile.com/wx/,  go to a new tab/page in your browser.
Already you can include them in your menu so that the info is displayed inside the w34 page.

Just check the demo pages in the download, such as
an image / div  without an iframe=> http://release230/pwsTEST/w34_start_frame.php?frame=test_image
an iFrame =>http://release230/pwsTEST/w34_start_frame.php?frame=test_website
or the weather-warnings in your current setup https://www.loweprofile.com/pws/w34_start_frame.php?frame=weatheralarms

Thanks Wim, I will look at your info. Some of those links open in new tabs by design because they will not work when I open them in my own iframe. Some of those radar pages are paid subscriptions, designed for my own use only. I will test your iframes. I was thinking using some Darksky charts on the extra page.

If you are into tinkering with scripts, you can edit w34_blocks.php to show the solar pop-up "UV Guide" under almost any block you want. Might not be room for it under current conditions, though?

My page (as left) shows various pop-up links, some no longer needed, scattered all over  :)

Because I started with the 2017/2018 versions,  it is a one persons hobby for ALL developers and because of a few other personal reasons, like having some time for family also.

Please feel free to fork any of the versions and develop your own version.

Most users already know that there will be 4 versions this year. The July release is fully (> 90%) responsieve, including all graphs. Test at http://wd34.weather-template.com/pws07/

The July release displays a table in the pop up which you can sort dynamically by distance or time.
The large block can be set to do that in the script. The small block always tries to find the most important earthquake nearby.

Well.......I'm very sorry to say this, but I liked the graphics on April version better. New version has become too sterile. The round elements added some humanity.  Weather sites are boring for many ppl. (my GF thinks this is a waste of time) It was nice to have some graphic elements that were not so square.

The original W34 designer had a big background in graphic design, and that appears to be lost now.

You can always continue to use the April version or any other version.  A lot of users customise a version and continue to use them for years.  One of them even has a a topic about his effort and successes on this forum.

Round: Or you can use the round option on the July release: https://www.weerstation-herent.be/pws07/?round

No it is not sticky yet. Nobody whose uses another language as English,  wanted it so far.
With the round option most texts will not fit and IMHO the other HWS templates (s.a. https://weather34.com/ ) changed to square also  for that reason.
I will put it in the menu and in easyweathersetup.

Have to agree. Come and join me in the customising business!

Quote

Actually I think he's lost the plot, now, looking at his latest effort: https://weather34.com/?theme=dark (Sorry, Brian!).

What I liked about the early templates ("I design simplicity") was the understatement. Nothing shouty, no really bright contrasty colours, no advertising-agency feel. And that's what I'm trying to keep going on my page: I even wonder if I've gone too far with the bright bars in the Garden Temp "Feels Like" column. . .?

On the debit side we have inherited from him the fashion for numeral 1 to be narrower than all the others. But 10 should appear the same width as 11 or 12 or 99, and then you can align them easily (example.png shows left-alignment OK but it's ruined by the figure 1 on the right!). Wim changed the clock, for which I am eternally grateful, but I shudder every time I see, e.g., 11.1 as in example2.

Not to derail this too much, but after seeing your thread I've been doing the same as well. I like April style so I've been tweaking the layout, added lightning info, icons to appear when it's raining, changing up colors, fonts, placement of stuff.  Been fun just going and figuring stuff out and tweaking to get what I'd like to see.

hi

first and foremost all credits should goto  Wim not myself he basically took a incomplete version from 2017 into what you guys have now and are able to customise it to your liking.so replace weather34 where ever it is shown to something related to Wim . he deserves that credit .

@bitsofstring :-) has for thanking me or leaving your in debt ? as above incomplete version many aspects of that version was never completed and was left to the wayside..

the approach of using circles was dropped based trying to match and align additional language phrases that was a tedious task and if there had been no design approach then just using text on a plain background would have been easier but less pleasing in design,many times I could perfect the layout in english and throw it into dutch for example and suddenly it all goes a bit wonky .then mr smith comes along with his new laptop that has no keyboard no mouse,no touchscreen, but its got voice controlled commands and he cant view the popups it begins all over again(excuse my humor)

circles versus squares(ish) i think the fact you have an option to use either is all the more better for everyone though adds somewhat more things to oversee from the creative side.
I went with a redesign released it sat back and waited for the negatives to appear but none were forthcoming , I get the part we all have views on how things should look if we all saw it the same way then it becomes rather a stagnant uninteresting challenge and it ends up being it is what is scenario, so you have something in front of you that you can tweak and customise that makes it far better than it was in the past and again credit goes to Wim for making it somewhat easy to customise to your liking.

weather websites are one of the most challenging things to get right because there is no standard in the weather hardware, software, servers, units, languages and the list goes on .
its far far easier to design for your personal needs and never give a dam about others or requirements but getting it right for everyones needs is the big challenge..

as for advertising look no sure I follow that one fully but perhaps its the footer layout ? I only promote what hardware I use and trust , however Im about totally ditch the weatherflow hardware after there recent rain fiasco approach left a large question mark but thats for another thread and another day when the initial disappointment wares off ...

so please credit Wim where ever possible be it discretely or boldly . no need to use based on weather34 anywhere.. brian

so happy coding,customizing,breaking(best way to learn) and nolatron have you worked out what simsek means :-) or correctly typed Şimşek

So after a day or two with the "Square" version, it has grown on me.  And I recognize the need to use a format that adapts to many languages and units, which may supersede some graphic desires.

Wim, you have done a fabulous job of packing a ton of information into one page, and making it work all around the world, in different languages, and different units.

Great job, and thank you so much for all your time & effort.

For the information of any who may be interested:

As I am a Cumulus user for pwsWD34 and I note that the Cumulus calculation for Feels Like Temperature uses the above referenced formula, I have made this simple amendment to line 401 of the script w34_livedata.php

from this:
$weather["temp_feel"]           = convert_temp ($num,$from,$to);

to this:
$weather["temp_feel"]           = $cu[54];

to show the calculation result preferred by me on my web page.

The option for Cumulus users to use this alternate calculation could, of course, be an option provided on the setup page, if so desired.

Hi!
Thanks but it doesn't work with me, look at the pagehttp://regnskvett.com/pws07/ (http://regnskvett.com/pws07/)
You had to look into the script.
It contains the example code for your camera as a comment.

This one will show the webcam feed

Hi
Thanks! It worked. I tried but did not tick away the part about webcam image.

July release has different options for decimal places in barometric pressure. Could we have another easyweather option for baro pressure in integer hPa (no d.p.) / inHg to 2 d.p.? (Trend can stay offset by +1 d.p.)

WMR200 only provides integer hPa. . .  :)

The WMR200 and some other stations have a resolution of 1mb  or  0,1inHg
The accuracy of a WMR200 is +/-10mb

Using 2 decimals for inHg even after recalculation from hPa to inHg would show an unreal precision.

Or did I misunderstood  your question?

1 mb is 0,03 inHg

I agree entirely, but some visitors to my page might expect to see 2 d.p. for inHg, and would be surprised to see less. . .

Sorry I missed that resolution, it says indeed 1mb  or  0,0inHg

So what you propose is always have 2 decimals for inHg?
I checked a few US sites and I found only sites with 2dp.

So to have that on your site change line 237 in w34_settings.php from
Code: [Select]
        $dec_baro++;to
Code: [Select]
        $dec_baro=2;

Thanks, Wim. But then I think you still need to change lines 59 and 61 of baro_c_block.php to get the "Current" conversion right:

Code: [Select]
59 $dec_baro+1 to $dec_baro+2
61 $dec_baro-1 to $dec_baro-2

I can live with 1 d.p. for trend in hPa and 3 d.p. for trend in inHg: WD can produce a trend <1.0 hPa  :wink:

Can we have "wind run" back? (Not in July release.)

It would be fine if there was a new topic for the October release, as most wishes are installed / taken care off.
For new users this topic is far too long and covers already three releases.
