Leuven-Template available for WeatherCat
« on: December 17, 2013, 03:37:54 PM »
Latest release  2.8 Release 2.4 of the Leuven-Template now supports WeatherCat.

All info: here

Download: http://leuven-template.eu/download.php?lang=en[/url
http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/_template2/template.php?lang=en&step3

Support: [url=http://support.leuven-template.eu/]http://support.leuven-template.eu/


At the moment there are over 70 230 sites using this template of which (only ?) 10 use WeatherCat.

A list of known users can be found at: http://leuven-template.eu/userlist.php?lang=en
http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/_template2/template.php?lang=en&step4

Weathercat is running on the mini next to 4 windows weather-programs programs all using VVP and 1 Davis
I am testing the template with WeatherCat for 2 weeks now using a spare MacBook. I will move the program shortly to a MacMini on which I run the other Mac and Windows programs. 

My own weather-sites Wilseleand Herent use the Leuven-Template also but are always 1 or 2 releases behind the current release to give support for older versions of the Template.

I hope this is a welcome addition to WeatherCat eco-system.

Sorry for those old links, last modified on 11 november 2015.

LATEST RELEASE 2.8 for all supported weatherprograms and for all regions.

Please always look at http://leuven-template.eu/ for support, latest releases, issues and so on. And use the support system to ask for help.

Wim

Wim,

Thank you so much for creating the WeatherCat version of the Leuven-Template! I have been reading about your progress on the WXForum thread and delighted to see another option for Mac users.

I'll read through the documentation later, and I might set up a separate page to test it out on my web site.

Thanks,
Steve

Wim:

Thanks for posting this template. I have quickly reviewed it and think it's a great addition to the template options available for WeatherCat. I'll do a more thorough review after the holidays.

Goed gedaan mijnheer!

Hi all - I don't know if it was me or if others had the same problem. using YOWINDOW the XML file needed to have the temp units as it defaults to metric.

<!-- L$ D$ -->
<!--YOWINDOW XML - PWS SPECS WeatherCat  version: 2.30 date: 2013-12-19 22:32:17 -->
<!-- Remove auto_update section if wanting the default, otherwise in seconds -->
<!-- Remove snow section if not inputting snow -->
<!-- Remove the uv and solar tags if those sensors aren't present -->
<response>   
  <current_weather>
    <auto_update>
      <interval value="300"/>
    </auto_update> 
    <temperature unit="TEMPUNITS$">
      <current value="STAT$TEMPERATURE:CURRENT$"/>
      <feels_like value="STAT$AT_US:CURRENT$"/>     
    </temperature>   
    <humidity value="STAT$EXTHUMIDITY:CURRENT$"/>
    <pressure value="STAT$PRESSURE:CURRENT$" trend="STAT$PRESSURE:DELTA1$"/>
    <wind>
      <speed value="STAT$AVERAGEWINDSPEED:CURRENT$"/>
      <gusts value="STAT$WINDGUST:CURRENT$"/>     
      <direction value="STAT$WINDDIRECTION:CURRENT$"/>

    <sky>
      <precipitation>
        <rain>
           <daily_total value="STAT$RAIN:TOTAL:TODAY$%"/>
        </rain>    
      </precipitation>
    </sky>
    <uv value="STAT$UV:CURRENT$"/>
    <solar energy="STAT$SOLAR:CURRENT$"/>   
  </current_weather>
</response>

also I don't see the UV or solar info on the mini display

Happy Holidays & New Year

Yowindow needs units for weather variables:
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
I am changing the templates for the yowindow gadget to include the units. I will do some testing the coming days.
Yowindow does not display UV or solar:
I have not seen those values displayed either.  Also on their site there are no examples with UV or solar displayed.
So I wonder if anyone else has a clue?

Happy Holidays & New Year

YoWindow tag-file for WeatherCat

Units added for all weather conditions.  Seems to be OK now.

I was able to find how to turn on UV but not solar.
in the "wsAjaxDashboard.php" file you need to change the lines that start with(lines 393 & 428);
"<param name="flashvars" value="location_id=gn:'.$SITE['YoWindowPlaceID'].'&amp;location_name='.$SITE['organ'].$url.'
&amp;time_format=24&amp;us=custom&amp;u_temperature='.$yrnoTemp.'&amp;u_wind_speed='.$yrnoWind.'&amp;u_pressure='.$yrnoBaro.'&amp;u_distance='.$yrnoDist.'&amp;u_rain_rate='.$yrnoRain.'&amp;lang='.$lang.'&amp;background=transparent&amp;copyright_bar=false &amp;current_weather_url=http://carefreeweather.silvertooth.us/yowindow.xml&amp;i_uv=true&amp;i_solar=true"/>"

also to get your weather change the "current_weather" area

I like this template and have tried to install it on my weather site today at www.uranusweather.com/weather2/

I have followed the receipt on http://wiki.leuven-template.eu/doku.php?id=how_to_install

So far almost everything is ok (warnings, forecasts, sun/moon almanac), but I am struggling with the most important thing. It seems like I haven´t managed to push the right button to upload the live current weather conditions. It is only the default values who are visible on the site. You can also see that the time and date is not correct - standing still on 13-12-2013 16:09

I guess I am only a few steps away to succeed with installing this template. Can anyone guide me through the last steps I may have missed?

I guess my problem has something to do with uploading of the 4 files; realtimeTags.txt, wsTagsWC.php, yowindow.xml, graphs.htx. I tried to upload them manually. Before I did that, the time and date on the site at "Last updated" was 13-12-2013 16:09, and the values on the weather parameter on the current conditions was different fixed values, temperature i.e. was 6,7 C.

After uploading manually the above mentioned files, the date and time switched to 01-01-1970 01:00. The time is not moving, standing still at 01:00. The values on the weather parameters are all switched to 0,0.

On WeatherCat Preferences, on Custom Web - additional files I have put in the four files mentioned above, see attached picture.

I am writing an wanswer at this moment. You did not set the upload information on the preferences => On-line => Custom Web => Main tab.
There is a test button there to see if the files are processed.
There is a test button also when you edit the ftp details.

Succes, Wim

You have to first test if the ftp-upload on the main page works.
2. Then according to the wiki you put the 4 downloaded files on the same mac as WeatherCat in a easy to acces folder, f.i. a folder "tagsFiles" on your desktop.
? You put the website in a folder on your Mac as I see in the picture ? But the source location of the "to be processed" files can not be the same location as the resulting files after processing.
3. You rename those files in the "tagsFiles" folder as instructed in the WiKi
4. You set the upload instructions on WeatherCat ⇒ Preferences… ⇒ On-Line ⇒ Custom Web ⇒ main
4. You test if everything is Ok using the test buttons.
Windows should appear on your Mac with the yowindow.xml and the other 3 files.

Succes, Wim

I updated the upload part of the wiki http://wiki.leuven-template.eu/doku.php?id=uploadwc4 with a more comprehensive description of the FTP/upload settings for those users who do not already upload files to a webserver.

And a happy new year to all.

Wow, thanx!!! After following your new Wiki-steps more exactly, it worked. Thanx again for quick response!

I think I need to do some small finishing touches here and there to make my weather site perfect. One thing I would like to adjust if possible, is the precipitation radar map. I live in Norway, and I would like to adjust so I can see whole of Norway on the map. Is that possible to adjust, and if it is, how?
