Dear Brian,

Thank you for your efforts on this cool template!

I only have a problem with the weather forecast.
The template is missing the data:

Image

I think it might be a problem with the connection to weather underground.
I added the key to the config file, but it doesn't work. Some files are updating their timestamps, but not all.
The JSONDATA folder looks like this.

Image

I downloaded the latest version in January, some weeks ago.

Do you have any idea what the problem is?
How can I check if the connection to WU is working properly?

Robert

please always provide a url and provide your easyweathersetup password via pm which you can change at anytime . with WU in recent times it could be anything , so to eliminate if is a template issue would need the above. brian

Good evening

as promised I would get this done asap here is the CU-X8(Sager Version) and credit goes to Paulmy and Steepleian

basically it evolves around a fallback for when weather underground FORECAST API is down or gone awol .
the version CU-X7 is still available in the download along with the alternatives like WXSIM etc .

i think for a month i will keep all X7 and X8 versions in the download until all issues are ironed out in this newer version there is bound to something.

it is entirely upto you on whether you use this version and I am really sorry the BT Sager option supports english only I'm sure it can be adapted to any language but it would need a lot of input in translating the various output scenarios generated.

tip.. adjust the offset and try to find the best output for your location for me here in istanbul is -15 however yours may lower due to location.see screenshot below.

numerous files were updated or reduced with removal of unnecessary code .
newer uvindex/solar pop up module , all new pop module layouts fine tuned for layout

the file zamcron.php needs a cron job to run at 6am ( 0600 ) and another at 6pm (1800) for the best result .
as always available via https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

*for now the BT Sager option is only available in the Cumulus version CU-X8,it is not available in meteobridge,wospi,weatherflow versions at the moment.

Hi,
Added Cardinal / Ordinal Point Name Function to my Wind Direction Charts.

Link to Dashboard : https://southfranklinweather.com/dashboard/index.php

Versus the original (degree).

I also added some of the new Popups to my CU-X7-WXSIM-MYSQL version: Thanks.

1: The "uvindex.php" : I noticed it was using the realtime.txt "Theoretical Max" so thought that pointless and pointed it to another "realtimedashboard.txt" file I upload for other reasons (which has actual Today Solar Max) and also the missing (Today UV Max). Had to modify the "livedata.php" to enable the additional UVMAX and SOLARMAX. Note: Not standard and not what most would do, just sharing what i've done and why.

uvsolarmax.png


2: The "mooninfo.php" : I noticed it did not have Southern Hemisphere (180) code, so added that.

moonsh.png


3: The "nearby.php" : I changed to display (ST/DST) Timezone instead of (am/pm).

metar.png


Also added Australian Warnings Script (which displays on Header) as we cannot use Meteoalarm in Australia.

Kind Regards,

Hi

Template link: http://moonappreciationsociety.com/Meteo/VillarPerosa

First of all thank you Brian for the fantastic template.

I am using weewx on a Raspberry which generates the realtime.txt file. Weewx has its own sqlite db. I would like to use the CU-X7 MySQL option to avoid reliance on WU for the data. Not sure where to start. Is there anybody using weewx with CU-X7 MySQL already who could help?

Thanks

David

good morning

finally got around to trying to cater for various options for those with or without capability of measuring Solar or UV data . in some cases users have Solar but no UV or vice the versa or nothing at all,some dont live in earthquake zones,many dont have a webcam, so I have created 4 extra options as seen below in the screenshot. both CU-X7 and CU-X8BETA have these options included.

as for me my time is going to be limited for some time ,so this may be this last request I am able to do for some time , i can help out with bug fixes etc but time is limited for adding options in. Later this year I may be moving to the SW of turkey as I don't think i can cope with the intense humidity here in istanbul during the summer anymore , the air is a lot drier on the SW side of turkey. Istanbul is notorious for its intense humidity and persistent high dew-point during the summer months.

this upgrade I hope it is of use for some and have done my best to cater for various hardware configurations.

I'm really struggling to get this up and running.

Environment: Raspberry Pi running weewx.
I generate the realtime.txt out of weewx on same machine at moment.
Haven't gotten that far, just trying to use demo data.

I have followed directions here:
http://pysselilivet.blogspot.com/2017/0 ... rlink.html

I get the easyweathersetup.php screen up and can change password, change settings ...
I've left the realtime.txt file location at the demodata location.

I haven't changed much else.

My assumption is that I don't actually have to run the cumulus generator in add_on as that seems to run as a chron job.

My issue is this. Regardless of browser, regardless of platform, when I go to the actual website http://XXX/pws, i get a blank screen.

I've installed it on 2 raspberry pi's multiple times and simply can't get it to show anything when I go to the page.

When I debug the page, I see a 500 error.

Any help is appreciated.

As an aside, I launched an EC2 instance and got the software up without issue. Don't want that to be a long term solution. Only thing I can see different there is it is using PHP7.1.11 vs PHP7.0.13

I take you you have installed Apache? and its on Port 80? and the pws folder in in the "www" or whatever your root web folder is?

there should not be any real difference between 7.x versions to affect it that much.
