Re: Add Extra Temp Value to Interface Page

I think that if you have the above string in a variable called str, and you have an HTML span called extratemp, then the following javascript will do what you want: var jsonData = JSON.parse(str); document.getElementById("extratemp").textContent=Math.trunc(jsonData.data[0][1]); You can pro...

Re: Add Extra Temp Value to Interface Page

If you show the result of that json data call, I (or someone else more clever than me) should be able to show you the javascript to extract just the single value. It's probably as simple as indexing by zero - data[0] - if it's a simple row which is returned, I can't remember.

Re: USB stop responding

The station seems to have got a bit confused, it suddenly said that there was an archive packet available in the middle of 'live' running. It should only signal that when software hasn't previously been reading live data. It's possible that the response from Cumulus wasn't what it was expecting at t...

Re: am i missing somthing or what?

The dayfile editor takes the last rain value for each day in the monthly log file and uses that for the total for that day. The monthly record editor uses the daily totals in dayfile.txt to determine the runs of wet or dry days, adding one to the appropriate count for each day that it finds in the f...

Re: am i missing somthing or what?

You said it was May and you're editing July? The point of editing the ini file is so you don't have to use the data logs for that figure. Editing the ini file and then using the editor is not sensible. Your data is clearly incorrect somewhere. If you are updating that record from the dayfile data th...

Re: am i missing somthing or what?

You don't need to rebuild the dayfile to correct the current number of days since it last rained, and rebuilding dayfile.txt definitely doesn't overwrite today.ini, so I have no idea what you're doing wrong. What do you mean by "this was back in my 2018"?

Re: am i missing somthing or what?

The current figure for the number of days since it last rained before today (consecutive dry days) is held in today.ini as I posted above.

ConsecutiveDryDays

I think you mean "Days since it last rained", not "Days since last dry day", unless you've had a completely different summer there to everyone else in Europe.

Re: Froggit WH3000SE

Not that I can think of. Even if there's a way of reading the data from a PC, it's not supported by Cumulus. The only way would be as described in the wiki for unsupported stations - if you can create data in the easyweather.dat format.

Re: Add Extra Temp Value to Interface Page

It's possible, but you'll need to do a bit of work, and it will require some javascript knowledge. If you look at extrasensors.js, you'll see that it gets the extra temperature data with a call to api/extra/temp.json - if you put http://localhost:8998/api/extra/temp.json into your browser (or use th...

From its appearance and description, almost certainly not compatible. Doesn't even seem to have PC connectivity?

Re: CumulusMX error

I can't see anything different between your run from last week and the runs from today, so I can't say why you can't see anything on the web interface. Different browser, perhaps? Are there any errors in the browser's developer console?

Re: Cumulus MX on Ubuntu 18.04

Have you actually installed the mono-complete package, as in the MX installation instructions? And step 2 on the page that you linked to, says that installing mono-complete should cover most cases of 'assembly not found' errors? If you have installed mono-complete, then I'm afraid I have no other su...

Re: today's rain: how to correct?

Actually, perhaps you could change it while Cumulus is running - if you could get your script to do the calls on the MX user interface which are invoked by the rain editor facility. If you want to try, you could look at the data exchange between the browser and MX using the developer console in the ...
