Weather Personal Widget
by: Luc DesGroseilliers • 2.2K
This widget displays the information of a clientraw.txt file generated by the software Weather Display.
This is NOT an application. This is a widget. You need to add it to your home screen after installing it.
To use it, your need a personal weather station and a program like Weather Display to generate the file clientraw.txt and upload it to a web server.
The widget supports 2 types of file: clientraw.txt and yowindow.xml.
Click the temperature in the upper left corner to configure, click anywhere else to update the display.
-Temperature units (Celsius or Fahrenheit)
-Wind speed units (kts, m/s, km/h, mph)
-Rain (mm, in)
-Feels like: Apparent, humidex, windchill, heat index.
-Background/Text color and transparency
-Display of an icon for the forecast/current conditions
-Auto-update when the device is unlocked
-URL of the file to download
The URL must me a full internet address like http://www.server.com/clientraw.txt
The small chart behind the temperature is the temperature in the last hour. The limits of the graphic are the hi/lo temperature of the day.
You can activate a periodic update. It will download only when the screen is ON.
