LCD Weather Station

Made a little LCD Weather Station applet to the playground. It also contains general lcd QGraphicsWidget that could be used in other similar applets. Basically it's just svg widget that has functions to turn on/off svg items, with helper functions to handle item groups and seven segment numbers.

I saw, very nice, the places dialog box in the weather applet will change if you want to use the new code soon.

Looks great! Will it only be limited to those sorts of LCD colors? Could you, for instance, use a black background and glowing red or green SVG items to make an LED display?

lcd widget uses svg so it's not limited to any color. Basically anything made with inkscape should work.

So nice! Is there any way at all that you could add a simple Java script support? so I could port all the Game&Watch games to plasma :D

How do you set the location. I put in the zip, city state, ICAO nothing works. Comes back and says invalid location. I'm using Kubuntu with 4.3 rc1.

Thanks!!!

Invalid location for me as well. Somewhat confused :) Nice screenshot though.

Yes, would like to know where the config file is, please.

23:33  
Blogger Petri said...

I'm not sure why you have to find config, but configuration is saved to:
.kde/share/config/plasma-appletsrc
(like for any other widget).

Great work. I love it. but how do I change the data sources from where it pulls weather info?

I also get invalid location for just about anything i type into the settings. So far the only location I've gotten to work is "New York" (which isn't near me).

Things like "Washington, DC" don't work. I just get "invalid place" errors (which pop up twice).

I love the elegance of it. Any plans to add custom unit selection to temperature and pressure?

In KDE 4.3 there will be unit selection for temperature and pressure.

Hi!

Suddenly my Location Tampere stopped working. I have tried several times for months now. Seems that it´s listed on the source of data though.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/2967

It just says could not find 'tampere'

Blogger Damu said...

Not sure why it won't find Tampere (possible because it's Tampere - Pirkkala international), but search for 'Finland' and select Tampere from the list.

Blogger Patrick said...

Oh, seems it Finds lots of more Cities/places with just Finland than City name.

Thanks.
