Stu,
Please don't hate me....... [rainyluck]

I dug deeper into the code and found that the UTC time MUST be in the format yyyy,m,d,h,m,s

I was of the understanding that it converted the local time to UTC in the javascript but this is not the case.

Just curious if the Steel Gauge templates are waiting for an update from Mark, the developer, or on tags being added to the next development release? I'd love to get started testing these out for you.  [bounce]

Steve,
I am just waiting for the changes to WC before I adjust the templates to suit and then release them. Mark has done more updates to the SS Gauges but these are also incorporated into the changes I made that I will give back to him once the additional tags are exposed in WC.

Cool, thanks Col! I posted a partial image of your gauges on Facebook yesterday when I was doing an update of plans for the future, and got a couple thumbs up for it.  [tup]

Thanks,

I have put together a page in the Wiki with details of the webtags used with the SS-Gauges.
http://wiki.trixology.com/index.php/WeatherCat_Webtags_with_Cumulus_Equivalents
When implementing the gauges, this table can be used to create your realtime template file.

Stu,
Could you please run your keen eyes over the wiki page to ensure I have got the descriptions of the tags correct.
The descriptions come from Cumulus and that is what the script expects to see in the realtime file.

Col.

Looks good Col - the page has been updated with the tags to get the hi/lo AT and times.

Cheers,
Stu.

Thanks Stu,
Once the change to the UTC date has been made and a few further tests have been done, I will approach Mark and see if he will incorporate my changes into the script.

Since I helped Mark with getting the Steel Series gauges for VWS use, I've been following this thread with some interest :)

I've let Mark know that a WeatherCat Steel Series Gauges is soon to arrive.. nice work Stu and Uncle Buck!

Also, I've just updated the Saratoga template set (05-Feb-2013) to allow single-page HTML5/UTF-8 output and sample template page to display the Steel Series Gauges.  The updates are available on the updates tool page.

See the sample at http://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplates/Test/wxssgauges.php

Thanks Ken.
For the WeatherCat users, I will also knock up a basic page similar to that which comes with the SS-Gauges zip file. That way the not so tech savvy people will be able to make one or two VERY small changes and just plonk it in the folder to be uploaded to their site and presto.

Once the final testing has been done, I am going to put instructions in the Wiki so anyone can do it.

Big thanks to you for your work on Saratoga templates as well.

Col.

Thanks for the kind words about the template set :)

I've added your site to the list too...

I found (doing the VWS version) that additions to the gauges.js script to support a new weather software are fairly straightforward in the script .. don't forget to provide him with the list of graphs to use with WeatherCat for the popups when a mouseover is done on a gauge.  That, and the WeatherCat template are likely all he needs to incorporate WeatherCat as a supported software in the set.

Col,

As I understand your intentions, you plan to have a simple template to run the Steel Series gauges as a standalone template, correct. It won't require Ken's Saratoga templates? That'll make it easier for more folks to use. While I like Ken's template and the flexibility it has, and had it running for some time, it is a bit difficult for the beginner to set up.

Thanks for your efforts on these!
