FreshWDL

Post by G3ZSS » Sun Oct 21, 2018 2:03 pm

I have found an excellent alternative to WDL that uses Java and HTML5, so I can now see my weather station on my iPhone. Checkout FreshWDL at https://github.com/Yerren/FreshWDL The software can also be downloaded directly from http://www.weather-display.com/download ... eshwdl.zip.
However there is a problem with the Clientraw.txt files produced by Meteohub which is preventing the display of the last 24 hours of data, but the graphs for the past month work correctly. This can be seen on my website http://www.g3zss.com/WeatherDisplay/FreshWDLmaster.html. Hopefully this can be checked out by the developers of Meteohub software?
Thanks Peter

Hi G3ZSS
With more and more devices no longer supporting Flash this is a great alternative. I agree it would be nice if it was fully supported by Meteohub.

My page here has the same problem http://home.btconnect.com/brettoliver1/ ... aster.html

I also use the Fresh WDL where Flash is not available i.e. on Apple iPads.
My graphs have always looked odd in that the Temp and Baro always tail off to zero.
I attach the authors Graphs and my own. In the Troubleshoot it states there is a problem with client raw.txt from WD which of course we are no longer using. I don't understand the comment about 12 hour format though.
My version from Erith Weather is the one with the yellow background.

I get the rainfall graph but no others on the main display. Any idea why?

I suspect there may be a difference in the way that the clientraw.txt files are created by different systems. Erith weather (above) is using a Meteobridge Pro. Likewise I do not get any graphs except the rainfall. I'm using the Meteohub software on a raspberry Pi.
