I wrote my own weather conky pulling data direct from the UK met office :) :

Can you share the config?

Re: So much for the weather applet

I can but it's not simple, it is written in python (my first python project, so code isn't wonderful), it requires an API key from the met office (you have to register) and a python lib (metoffer). I also found somewhere all the icons that the met office were using in their website and downloaded them, but can't remember where I got them.

The conky bit is straightforward, standard stuff to begin with, with the python script at the end:

Code: Select all

background false #doesn't seem to make any difference, yes/no, true/false
use_xft yes #anti aliased fonts
xftfont Sans:size=8
xftalpha 1
update_interval 2.0 
total_run_times 0
own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type desktop
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
double_buffer yes
minimum_size 0 0
#maximum_width 1000
draw_shades no
draw_outline no
draw_borders no
stippled_borders 0
default_color white
default_shade_color grey
default_outline_color white
alignment top_middle
no_buffers yes
uppercase no
override_utf8_locale no
text_buffer_size 4096
default_outline_color black
default_shade_color black
gap_y 0 
gap_x 0
##############################################
#  Output
##############################################
TEXT
${execpi 3600 python /home/andy/.conky/UKweather.py}
And the python code, at the end it outputs text for conky to interpret. I've found each time I've put in on a different laptop/PC, different screen or upgraded mint (17 -> 18 -> 19) I've had to adjust the vertical offsets slightly to get it to display properly (and they interact - which wasn't what I thought would happen when I originally did it). I've overwritten the site specific/personal data. Don't ask me to explain any of it :) - it is at least two years old:

Code: Select all

Actually, I've found the Weather Desklet works pretty darn good. So I've switched to that.

I spent about half a day trying to get the WeatherBug desktop app to work in WINE but couldn't. It seems anything I try in WINE that needs .NET doesn't work.

The weather information provided by the gnome-calendar is a close approximation of true conditions. Yahoo weather was often several degrees below real conditions and Accuweather recently showed a 10°C variance.

There are only two weather reporting systems that I have found to be accurate. Weatherzone which provides weather information for Australia and New Zealand via a GUI and "curl" which can use the airport co-ordinates the user specifies via a terminal. Curl also works with place names but the user should be aware that place names are not unique and are sometimes duplicated from one locality to another.

Below is the syntax for the weather report for Maitland, Australia using the Maitland airport code "MTL"
curl wttr.in/mtl
... and it even gives you the address of the airport including its longitude and latitude.

i will beg to differ on accuweather. i've never know accuweather to be off more than 1 to 2 f, and that was extremely rare. if i had a decent looking app for accuweather i would be using it. luckily i have one on my phone.

I can but it's not simple ...
i may try your code. you're right i don't post conky configs unless i give a disclaimer. "it works on my system but may not work on yours" on top of that i still use the old conky, never learned to code the new one. if i get a conky from someone, it's up to me to fix it so that my system is able to use it

i have fixed a lot of yahoo weather conkys from users on other forums that kept PM me whenever yahoo weather went down and got tired of that. this time i can say it's down for good, phew :lol:

on a different note, in my kodi setup i also have yahoo weather and in times before this when yahoo went down i would wait until kodi yahoo weather displayed the temperature before i would go try fixing my own. this time kodi yahoo weather is still a fail

i loved my yahoo conky r.i.p. :(

here'a a weird one using ffmpeg but working and the api still works just download and it's an executable file but uses quite a lot of RAM when it's raining or snowing it animates falling rain or snow https://jackd248.github.io/temps/ to set it to your city type the city and country code New York US . something to play with if you're bored. also it automatically add a startup action when you open it so if you don't want to start it you need to uncheck the option everytime you open it.

shame YAKPOO! doesn't go down altogether as in their main offices going up in a massive explosion AFTER being completely evacuated though. i say this cause they are the worst of the worst in violating peeps right to privacy.

Thanks for the chromium extension. That'll do for me - at least for now!

Update from the applet author on GitHub:

I'm using the bbcwx@oak-wood.co.uk desklet (with OpenWeatherMap) as an alternative.
