Re: ⭐ weather.com - Parsing the JSON

Post by SCR »

If the OP wants to check on the gust measure I am now experiencing a wind Gust speed of 17 mph 3/27/20 12:17 pm EDT. Location Code = USNY1233. I would post a screen shot but I have forgotten how to do that.

Having said all that I will now return to my assigned seat on the forums observation deck and get back to finding a elusive intermittent problem in my developing weather skin.

It is my sincere hope that everyone stays healthy.

Exactly. Right now speed is 12, gust is 17.

Woohoo! :thumbup: Finally got a valid reading (for USNY1233)

Edit: I'm getting a reading (gusts: 22mph) in my local area now (4:00 P EDT).

Good! This means there was no such a value returned by the site, for a longer time. Glad if you got it working finally.

Hi all!
It's been a very long time from my last post... O.O

...and now I discovered that my weather skin isn't working anymore! :twisted:

Before I waste my almost inexistent free time trying to understand if and how I can fix it, since it's been a long time since I edited or created a skin, can you please tell me if using that json I can have all I need to replace the old wxdata for four days?

Please consider me as less as a newbie, now... :oops:

Yes, the JSON data can provide up to 5 days of weather using the @Current... and @Forecast... measure values.

A quick overview of converting an existing skin would be to copy all of the JSON weather measures to your @Resources folder in the skin, then in your weather skin, replace all MeasureName=... with the name of the corresponding JSON weather measure names.

JSMorley provided a reference list to help with the process.

Add #includes for the JSON weather files you will use and finally, remove all of the WXData measures.

Welcome back! :welcome:

Yes, and more. It looks something like this (well, not exactly like that, since the structure was "formatted" for clarity, but you get the point).

Thanks for the replies, however I'm very rusty, now...

I tried to understand how this is working, digging in the code in the skin I downloaded, thanks jsmorley, however I got lost after two lines of code... :-(

I don't even know if it's possible, but all I want to do is download only the json part and use it in my skin, hoping it contains all the information I need.
...and no, I don't want to redo my skin from scratch, so, I want to use and/or modify my measures, but limit the changes to the minimum possible.

To each his own, but that is just not an approach I agree with, and wouldn't put in the enormous effort required to do it.

I'd be happy to help you get started with using the .inc files with the full set of measures, and give some hints on how to use them with your skin, but I don't think it makes sense, in the short or long term, to re-invent the wheel.
