Weather Personal Widget


This widget displays the information from a personal weather station.
This is NOT an application. This is a widget. You need to add it to your home screen after installing it.

To use it, your need a personal weather station and a program like Weather Display on a PC to generate the file clientraw.txt and upload it to a web server.


The widget supports 2 types of file: clientraw.txt and yowindow.xml.

Click the temperature in the upper left corner to configure, click anywhere else to update the display.

Configurable:
-Temperature units (Celsius or Fahrenheit)
-Wind speed units (kts, m/s, km/h, mph)
-Barometer(hPa, in/hg)
-Rain (mm, in)
-Background/Text color and transparency
-Display of an icon for the forecast/current conditions
-Auto-update when the device is unlocked
-Periodic update
-URL of the file to download

The URL must me a full internet address like http://www.server.com/clientraw.txt

You can activate a periodic update. It will download only when the screen is ON.
You can configure alternate URL and period to use when the phone is connected to a WIFI network.

The small chart behind the temperature is the temperature in the last hour. The limits of the graphic are the hi/lo temperature of the day.

Text Color Broken The text color never changes. It does not react at all, no matter what you set it to. It always stays white. Always. Eveything else works, if you don't really care about designs, colors, and layouts (not the case with me).
