Speaking TextClock6 with Weather

Post by jsmorley »

I have updated the TextClock skin to properly get the weather data from weather.com.

Speaks the date / time and weather information when the skin is left-clicked.
Right-click and select "Edit Weather Variables" to set your Location Code and weather language and units of measure.

This installs and uses the Speech plugin, and the TextClock6Color.ini variant installs and uses the Chameleon plugin.

The weather / temperature portion of TextClock stopped working a bit ago. Did they deprecate the use of it or is there anyway to get it fixed?

Thanks!

I have created a version that uses jsmorleys way to parse weather.com by using JSON-information of the site introduced in this thread:
weather.com - Parsing the JSON

My adaption works as intended, but in case there will be some modifications to the JSON-includes, be sure to get the latest ones from the thread above.

Thanks!
This skin was using the HTML from the website instead of the JSON, and as I suspected all along, that's not going to be reliable as they change the website. Give me a day to convert this to the JSON, and I will post a new version.

Updated to change the data retrieved from weather.com from the somewhat unreliable HTML to the more reliable JSON.

New Version 6 available in the first post of this thread.

Also available on deviantART.
