Weather34 template
« on: January 31, 2019, 01:27:58 PM »
Hi,

For anyone who want to use the weather34 template with Weathercat, you can use the Cumules version of the weather34 template:
https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/HomeWeatherStationTemplate
To make this work I made a WCT_Realtime.txt file which has to be uploaded (by Weathercat) to a location where the template has access to (configuration within the template).

Thank you very much.
I assume that it is allowed to use this file also for the user in this topic http://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2900.msg28131#msg28131
He wants to continue to use the HWS-template for WD when he is witching to Weathercat.

I will test it and report back.

Thanks for the good work,

Is it possible to have web 2 pages using the WCT Realtime.txt.. One using Saratoga and one using the weather 34 template on another page?  If so , how?

You can unpack the weather34 template in a subdirectory on your site, then in the easyweathersetup.php, set the WCT_Realtime.txt link to be with a relative file address like

../WCT_Realtime.txt

(assuming you're uploading the WCT_Realtime.txt to a directory one above the directory containing the weather34 template.

The master for the Cumulus version of the Home Weather Station template is at https://github.com/ktrue/CU-HWS

Still trying to find the correct weather34 template software to download.  I have yet to find a tar ball/zip file of the software.  I must be looking at the wrong download links.....

Thanks for any additional links or explanation.

I think this is what you are looking for, nowait?

https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/HomeWeatherStationTemplate

Under the photo...it is the Cumulus version that you are looking for.

Hope this helps?

Yes, the Cumulus version at https://github.com/ktrue/CU-HWS now supports both WeatherCat and WeeWX in addition to Cumulus.

WeatherCat just needs the Cumulus-like WCT_Realtime.txt file be processed and uploaded by WeatherCat.  You can select WeatherCat in the easyweathersetup.php (and set the livedata file to be WCT_Realtime.txt on your site).  It will even show the 'cat' logo in place of the Cumulus logo on the index.php page when you do that.  There are four of us providing updates to the CU-HWS master distribution at this time.

Thank you for great template !

I installed it successfully last night. Looks very modern indeed.

Few small observations so far.
* in metric Scandic mode, temperature is rounded bit oddly, high and low are correct but temperature is rounded downwards to xxx.0 (even if correct is xxx.4 or xxx.8 e.g.)
* Daily rain, might have the same issue. Monthly and yearly rain is ok with one digit, but daily is showing data similar manner to temperature.

Re: Weather34 template-Issues encountered
« Reply #11 on: February 11, 2019, 04:20:18 PM »
Love this template, but currently experiencing issues that are being addressed by KenH (Saratoga):
 
Temperature (F) is NOT correct. I have checked the addon script *WCT_Realtime.txt* and information is both being captured and uploaded.
Incorrect temperature that IS showing (C) matches with current correct F temperature.

DarkSky is reporting in Imperial measurements EXCEPT for snow predictions showing in cm.

Wind Gust data is missing completely; but is showing correctly in Wind Gust section lower on the template.

Temperature Max/Min is incorrect and corresponds to the incorrect temperature data.

Screen shot attached.

The temperature problems seem to be caused by the WCT_Realtime.txt template file which has
Code: [Select]
WINDSPEEDUNITS$ C PRESSUREUNITS$ RAINUNITS$ in it which says the temperatures are always in C (even if WeatherCat is using F).

That should be changed to
Code: [Select]
WINDSPEEDUNITS$ TEMPUNITS$ PRESSUREUNITS$ RAINUNITS$ so the units will display correctly.

I've attached the updated WCT_Realtime.txt template file with this correction.

Edit: sorry.. should be TEMPUNITS$ .. corrected.

Edit again.. Also a change to livedata.php is needed as TEMPUNITS$ returns a UTF-8 degree sign in front of the C or F and the template expects only a C or F character.
I've attached that fixed livedata.php (and updated the master distribution)

I used the new txt file and no changes at all.
So I tested using F instead of C, that did capture the temperatures, but
completely mucked up the Barometric pressures and UV/Solar, Rainfall and Temperatures Max/Min.
So, I will sit back and see if there is another fix from WouterK who is the original creator of the text file.

Many thanks for your kind effort! [cheers1]

Do you have a link to your weather34/ page? And preferably to the uploaded realtime file?
Then I can test your realtime file with a different version of the template: http://wd34.weather-template.com/pwsTEST/?theme=dark
