Weather stopped working

tallon » March 13th, 2019, 8:18 am

Hi,

The weather section has suddenly stopped working and just shows 'Currently' and a degrees symbol.

I went into settings and found the weather source URL line, copied it to a browser window and it worked fine, so it's not the weather source (Weather Underground), but seems to be Rainmeter itself.

The skin I'm using is 'elementary' but it seems to make no difference when I change it. Everything else is still working fine - is this maybe something to do with recent Windows 10 updates?

Anyone know how to get it going again?

Thanks.

I doubt. First try to restart Rainmeter. Skins using WebParser measures many times stop working, especially if you've refreshed it more times, one after the other (but not just). Details: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=26117&p=136507&hilit=webparser+hang#p136507
If this doesn't help, try refreshing the computer, too.

Thanks for that advice, but already tried it - the problem has been like this for several days and I was hoping it would clear itself up...

Everything Weather Underground ceased to function in my area on March 4th as far as Rainmeter is concerned. They have changed their website and it is no longer compatible with Rainmeter WebParser.

In addition they have cancelled all free developer keys for access to their API and will no longer provide them. Basically Weather Underground is dead as far as Rainmeter goes unless you have a personal weather station and upload data. If so you can retrieve your data but it will be limited and in JSON format.

Please post a link where the skin can be downloaded.

Not sure where you got an Elementary skin that uses WU (WUnderground is dead for Rainmeter skins). The original Elementary skins used Yahoo (it is also dead). The second & third Elementary versions used Weather.com (but it changed formatting).

Here is an updated version that uses WXData from Weather.com
EDIT: You need to create a new "Location" variable in "Elementary\@Resources\Settings.txt" and set it to your zip code or weather.com code e.g; Location=USNY0996.

With these changes It is working fine for me.

Replace the 'weather.ini' file in the 'Skins\Elementary\Weather' folder with this file.

In my post above, sadly I forget to tell users to create a new "Location" variable in the "@Resources\Settings.txt" file. If you do that and replace "Elementary\Weather\Weather.ini" with the code above, it should work.

Alternately, here is a patch package you can download and install. This will replace only the "Elementary\Weather\weather.ini" file with the version posted above and "Elementary\@Resources\Settings.txt" file with the added "Location" variable into your current Elementary installation folder.

Note: If you made changes to the "@Resources\Settings.txt", you may want to copy that file to a location outside of the skin folder before installing this patch, so you can compare it to the one in this package and restore your settings.

This package does not modify any other skins in your Skins\Elementary folder.

That's not so simple. There are some other variables as well, which also are missing if you don't have the original package, I suppose. I don't have it and only get some missing variables shown on the skin. Like #Currently# and so on. And beside location, unit phi and scalar would also be needed. The #language#.txt, style.inc included files are also required.
So, a link to the original package would be welcomed, I think.

Plus, additionally note that you're needlessly quoting some options in your code. For example there is no need to quote what you have into the RegExp option (nor other) of the parent WebParser measure. But also not needed to quote the Text option into the [styleForecastString] style section and so on. Hope you know: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=26350&p=137628&hilit=quote+enclose+option#p137628

No problem balala :)

All of those settings are in the file included in the patch; the user must have the original suite of skins installed. These changes refer to version 1.5 of Elementary (link: https://www.deviantart.com/flyinghyrax/art/Elementary-Rainmeter-1-5-1-old-244031084).

NEW VERSION RELEASED
I would recommend user simply use the new version FlyingHyrax has posted available here: https://www.deviantart.com/flyinghyrax/art/Elementary-3-0-426588102
Note this will completely replace version 1.5 if you have that installed.
