Anyone who try to fixing weather skins?

Post by psh250092 »

I've been use Tech-A skin (updated by MegaT145, https://www.deviantart.com/megat145/art/TECH-A-UPDATED-633079897) for a few years and recently heard about what happened to weather api. So I'm trying to fix it with Openweathermap.org api, but scripting was way different thing than I expected.

Anyone who trying same things? I'm not used to edit bunch of .ini files, XMLs, JSONs and webparser.

Please understand this noob....

There have been many updates to the weather skin process:

Perhaps find one on the list of those marked green?
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.

You might want to start here: Step-by-Step Basic Weather Skin Tutorial
The "master" set of files, plus another example, is here: Weather.com - Parsing the V3 JSON - NEW!

Don't bother with openweathermap.org. It is not nearly as good as weather.com. The basics are pretty simple using the above instructions; just remove all WebParser measures from your skin, add a reference to the @include files mentioned in the links, and then adjust the meters in the skin to refer to the new measures as documented in the second link above.
