accuweather desklet

Is this broken?

from my ~/.xsession-errors:

Code: Select all
 JS ERROR: !!!   Exception was: TypeError: doc.split("city")[1] is undefined
    JS ERROR: !!!     message = '"doc.split("city")[1] is undefined"'
    JS ERROR: !!!     fileName = '"/home/james/.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/accudesk@logan/desklet.js"'
    JS ERROR: !!!     lineNumber = '319'
    JS ERROR: !!!     stack = '"("<?xml version=\"1.0\" ?>\r\n<error>Your subscription has expired.  Please contact AccuWeather to resubscribe</error>")@/home/james/.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/accudesk@logan/desklet.js:319
("<?xml version=\"1.0\" ?>\r\n<error>Your subscription has expired.  Please contact AccuWeather to resubscribe</error>")@/home/james/.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/accudesk@logan/desklet.js:264
([object _private_Soup_SessionAsync],[object _private_Soup_Message])@/home/james/.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/accudesk@logan/desklet.js:405


On my laptop running cinnamon/Mint 16 I noticed about two weeks ago the accuweather desklet was not returning data. Just the other day I unfortunately had to reboot my desktop box, also cinnamon/Mint 16 and the desklet here also stopped returning data. After looking at a few files and finding ^^ that in the .xsession-errors I figured it might be the desklet developer needs to fix HIS subscription to accuweather, because I have never had one!

Trouble is, the only info on the app seems to point to accudesk@logan and not a developer with an email address, so

If there is some cure, can we post it conspicuously?

If not, can we contact the dev?

If not, can we remove the desklet from the offerings?

http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/desklets/view/10 You may want to post here.
If you have not updated the applet Right click on Desktop > Add Desklets > Get More Online > Refresh List > Select the Desklet > Click on Install or Update Selected

Thanks jrogers!
I should have been a bit more aware. Still, I wonder if the dev or others might be on a subscription basis with accuweather.com and if that is time sensitive or otherwise tenuous, might be an idea to work through so end users are not linked to a 4th party subscription issue.

As for whether desklets work with Mate, "No. Desklets are bound to Cinnamon's API and AFAIK will not work at all with MATE."

Cheers!

Bit Off-topic - There is a new weather desklet that uses BBC, Yahoo! Weather and Open Weather Map (should not have any subscription issues!).
