Did you see the above thread?


It's been crickets from Stu as far as I recall in the public section. Maybe your new question will prompt a response since this is becoming more of a problem without some workarounds.

I had the same problem more than a year ago and was searching for a solution. At the end I had to take down my website for few months and take the time to find a reasonable solution without killing the Cat.

There is one solution that worked out for me since Stu wrote the API link to Meteotemplate (www.meteotemplate.com). Through this there is not need for SFTP because WeatherCat sends the data directly to Meteotemplate.

This resolved another issue for me i.e. the fact that although Ken's Saratoga template is great I didn't have the time (or the brains) to take care of regular updates and add-ons.

I think that few WeatherCat users are also using Meteotemplate and can give an opinion about it. As far as I am concerned the template is providing a myriad of functions that are overwhelming for many. On the other hand there are many ideas and solutions for individual regions and countries that open a new world of possibilities for weather lovers.

Maybe this helps.

Sadly, the problem is that even though the man page says curl supports sftp, it doesn't actually - if you open a terminal window and type:

Code: [Select]
curl --versionThis will list the protocols supported.

You'll see that sftp isn't actually listed (at least it isn't on the 10.13.2 I'm running here) - this is because the version Apple ships doesn't include it.
What I get here is:
Code: [Select]
curl 7.54.0 (x86_64-apple-darwin17.0) libcurl/7.54.0 LibreSSL/2.0.20 zlib/1.2.11 nghttp2/1.24.0
Protocols: dict file ftp ftps gopher http https imap imaps ldap ldaps pop3 pop3s rtsp smb smbs smtp smtps telnet tftp

This doesn't mean that I'm not working on it however :)

I had this same issue when my site was hosted with 1&1. I used the app FTP Watcher to handle all the uploads. It is easy to setup and fully supports SFTP.

Create a task in FTP Watcher to watch the folder where WeatherCat creates the files for your site. It will upload all files that are created and updated in that folder. Also, make sure FTP is disabled in WeatherCat.

Link for FTP Watcher: https://www.yummysoftware.com/Product-Information-Watcher/

FTP Watcher is also in the Mac App Store and is currently on sale, but note that it is the previous version and will no longer be updated. The new version 3 is on the developerís website and can be run as a trial for 30 days.
