Re: Webcams and Timelapse

Nicely done, it's always fascinating watching those timelapse videos, especially when there is wind shear.

True, i haven't looked into it but when is the secure connection made, before or after the URL is passed to the server? You'd hope before!

Feature Suggestion ;) tmp folder

Steve, how about creating a /tmp folder (other names are available) under the Cumulus structure, and direct all the transitory file writes to this folder. I'm thinking the processed <filename>tmp files, JSON files, realtime.txt etc. If they were all created in a single folder then it would be easy t...

WU define the interface. They need the password, otherwise anybody could upload to your station. As you say it uses SSL so it should be secure, same as using a password to log on to any other web site.

Re: How is this happening?

Are you confusing the "theoretical solar irradiation" value that Cumulus calculates, with an "actual" value from a sensor? The theoretical value will produce a nice smooth curve, the actual values don't (unless it is perfectly cloudless sky). If you are getting "actual"...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Odd, I tried my variation of this script on PHP 7.0 yesterday and it ran without any errors. :?

I'm just plucking up the courage to switch the live server to PHP 7.0 from 5.6 - the rest of the site seems to be working OK on my dev server, it only required a small tweak to the MX Graphs.

You haven't installed a real copy of libudev.so.0, you have just copied version 1 to version 0 and hoped it works.

Re: Met Office WOW site - upgraded but many stations missing

Nope, still didn't work for me. Looked in the source code and found the link, once I used that to log in then Home Page started working again and the webcam tab appeared. Weird stuff going on there!

Re: Average Wind Pointer

Not easily!

you would either need to edit the steelseries.js library file and comment out the drawing code in there for the pointer and the associated LCD, or use the "Compass" gauge from the full SteelSeries library and lose the LCD displays and the ability to show the sector colouring.
