Is there something similar like GitHub available - I ask because I do not want to replace the whole weather34 installation but only the reworked / updated / new released files.

Thanks in advance,
Reinhard

No, sorry.  It is also totally different from older WD versions.
And in-compatible with the other weather34/ versions.

Re: HWS-template (WD34) July release
« Reply #5 on: May 06, 2019, 12:15:54 PM »
The apha version of the forthcoming July release is running now
In the extra wide version of 3 rows  of 4 normal-blocks at: http://wd34.weather-template.com/pws07/index.php
The "normal" 3*3 version at https://www.weerstation-herent.be/pws07/

Status July version: The major overhaul is almost finished.
  • The PHP code is completely (say 90%) rewritten and error-free  according to the logs
  • Most code is now human readable, from top-> bottom and left->right it follows the output on the blocks
  • There are no HTML errors left, checked with https://validator.w3.org/nu/ This is time-consuming to test as the index.php html only contains empty blocks. All blocks insert their own html dynamically.
  • The CSS is now only a 100+ lines ,  not minimized, included in the start scripts as in-line css
Still ToDo:
  • Remove unneeded icons / images from shared.php and the image folder
  • Add extra comments to the more complex scripts
  • Add "empty" blocks for extra sensors

I forgot: TO DO also "more TESTs " as last time.

This version remains compatible with WeatherCat.

Hi there..... I'm trying to get my WeatherCat to use this template... while I get the cgi to send the data, the template doesn't' seem to read it. Wondering if you did anything special, other than the configuration in the easy-setup?

Thanks.

Ken
station is at tuley.online/pwsWD/index.php

Hi Ken

the template for weathercat uses the realtime text file, see attached file. I cant remember who made the realtime template, but the credit goes to them
I have a template directory and a data directory for the template and weathercat to use.

To setup weather cat,
under preferences, go to the custom web tab.
set the source location to the template directory.
set the save path to the data directory.
setup ftp if you need it, my setup is an inhouse server so I don't ftp.
set the upload rate and weathercat is ready

To set up the template,
using the easyweathersetup.php, set the path to your realtime text file to the data directory, mine is ./data/WCT_realtime.txt, but again my is an in-house server

after that, you should be good to go

YES!!!!!!!

Thank you very much!
I was trying to use the custom cgi, instead of the custom web page. Couldn't figure out how to connect the realtime.txt file to things. but now all is working! 
Thanks again for the quick and simple solution!

Ken

The final beta version can be downloaded => http://wd34.weather-template.com/beta.php

Improvements:
All code rewritten and now easier to change by users
Nearly 95% of the CSS is removed
Cleaner user-interface
Better handling of menu items
Better nextstorm and weatherflow lightning support
Improved notifications
Far better responsiveness, the data will fit on a small iPhone and a large iMac
Faster speed of loading the page, will now also run on "less-expensive" hosting platforms

I think  I will roll-out the official July release on June 24. My wife and I  planned our vacation for the last two weeks of July.
Gives the users / testers and me three full weeks to check if there are no new errors creeping up.

Wim

P.S. some users now use this template as a "iPhone / tablet" version next to their full-size main website.
