Saratoga trends page update with Dew Point display

Postby saratogaWX » Sat Sep 30, 2017 10:07 pm

It all started with a simple request to have the Dew Point trends displayed on the Weather-Display wxtrends.php page. After some discussion there, it was quite feasible to add, so I updated the Weather-Display WD-trends-inc.php and ajaxWDwx.js scripts to do that.

I got to thinking that both Cumulus and Meteobridge provide that data too, so why not do them as well?

So, the 30-Sep-2017 update (using the update tool) will give you updates for:

Base-* ajaxCUwx.js V3.05, ajaxMBwx.js V4.03, ajaxWDwx.js V2.25 to all provide an ajaxdewNoU AJAX variable and fix the Baro trends display to use consistent number of decimal places.

CU-plugin: CU-trends-inc.php V1.10
MB-plugin: MB-trends-inc.php V1.09
WD-plugin: WD-trends-inc.php V1.07

all provide a new DEW POINT column after HUMIDITY, and a note in small font to say
( Note: Only the 'Current' values may be updated in near-realtime, while the other values are current when the page is loaded. The other data was from {date} {time}. Reload this page for updated data.)


Internationalization is supported by adding

Code: Select all

langlookup|Note: Only the 'Current' values may be updated in near-realtime, while the other values are current when the page is loaded.|Note: Only the 'Current' values may be updated in near-realtime, while the other values are current when the page is loaded.|
langlookup|The other data was from |The other data was from |
langlookup|Reload this page for updated data|Reload this page for updated data|
langlookup|DEW POINT|DEW POINT|
to the language-LL.txt file(s) on your site.

Best regards,
Ken

Hi Ken,
I have updated and seems fine http://www.komokaweather.ca/wxtrends.php

However the small print shows:
Trends as of 09/30/17 at 23:55:23

( Note: Only the 'Current' values may be updated in near-realtime, while the other values are current when the page is loaded. The other data was from 31/12/1969 23:55. Reload this page for updated data.)


Is there something I may have done somewhere to show the date as 31/12/1969?

Paul

Hi Ken,
Forget my previous post. I had done a few Refresh and it still showed the 31/12/1969 date. We just changed at midnight a few minutes ago to 10/01/2017 and now that the date shown correct at 10/01/2017. My first check must have been while Cumulus was doing its midnight rollover. ALL GOOD NOW!

Regards,
Paul

Since the update also replaces the ajaxCUwx.js script, be sure to check the settings in there, especially for the realtime.txt location.

I changed the default from /realtime.txt to just realtime.txt to better help those who install in subdirectories :)

Thanks Ken,
I did have to change it to /weather/realtime.txt (which was my settings in the initial ajaxCUwx.js) and now the Current is updating with the Cumulus realtime.txt update and matches my console http://www.komokaweather.ca/wxtrends.php

Enjoy,
Paul
