I am using Rainformer. I have also lost the weather functionality today. Does anyone know a fix for this one specifically? Tried the steps above, but I do not have a <Gadgets> folder.

Edit, disregard. For those who may be having the same issue with this skin, the path is:

C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\RainformerHWi\@Resources

File to edit: "Variables.inc"

1) Replace all " with \\" in all RegExp options in the various WeatherComJSONMeasures*.inc files.
2) Add ,"\\":"" to the end of #CommonSubstitute# in the WeatherComJSONVariables.inc file.

And bingo...

As for 2), that sounds like we have to make a change in only on spot. Which one? Or do we have to change all of them? Which would be dozens.
Is this how it should look then? Substitute=#CommonSubstitute#",\\":""

Sorry, but unexperienced users will mess up all the code, since it's not clear what to do.


My suggestion is, please provide a apackage of all five .inc files in question, so we could just swap those files.

Your suggestion was actually followed a long time ago, see here:
https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=35770#p180633

Not sure about it since it's been a while since the post was made, but that reply might refer to the earlier attempts to parse the JSON contents that's embedded in the weather.com page itself (which, as far as I know, only I still do in my skins, to offer an alternate way to get data without bothering with an api key), or, even more likely, to a somewhat similar issue in the separate JSON that has since been fixed. The current way of getting weather data based on the separate JSON and the .inc files I linked to doesn't require any special handling besides what's already done in the @include files, and, of course occasional adjustment of the api key when such a change occurs.

In the case of SONDER, change the value of the APIKey variable in the ...\SONDER\@Resources\Variables.inc file as instructed, save the file and refresh the skin.
