FreshWDL

Post by G3ZSS »

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.

Hi, is there now a solution for this problem or do we have to live with that?

Regarding the fact that FreshWDL does not display the "last 24 hours" graphs for Temperature, Wind speed and Borometer, at least for some metro devices (I have a WNR200), I suspect this has to do with FreshWDL itself because it is working with WDLive (flash version) using the exact same clientraw.txt and clientrawextra.txt

The problem is that FreshWDL does not seem to be updated for a long time, I do not know if someone may have a look at the code.

OK, I locked at the code, and I found the issue. Normally, value 700 in clientrawextra.txt should contain the current day of month. Sadly, it is always 0 as generated by MeteoHub (at least with WMR200 as device). The day of month is also at value 35 of clientraw.txt.

The fix is twofold:

- change the 3 occurrences of "arrayClientrawExtra[700]" to "arrayClientraw[35]" in file "WidgetsHandlers.js" downloaded from the GitHub repository (https://github.com/Yerren/FreshWDL)
- upload this new version of "WidgetsHandlers.js" inside the "wld" directory (where "FreshWDLmaster.html" resides)
- change your "FreshWDLmaster.html" to replace into the last "script" line:
https://gitcdn.xyz/cdn/Yerren/FreshWDL/ ... ers.min.js
by
WidgetsHandlers.js

(So that the changed line now reads:
"<script type="text/javascript" src="WidgetsHandlers.js"></script> <!--Includes most of the Scripting-->"
instead of
"<script type="text/javascript" src="https://gitcdn.xyz/cdn/Yerren/FreshWDL/ ... "></script> <!--Includes most of the Scripting-->")

I have attached a zip with the new versions of the 2 files.

Hope this helps !
