Description:

This is an extremely simple plasmoid written in python. It fetches weather information from google.com. It lets you configure the location and unit of the weather information.

Please feel free to send me bug reports and / or suggestions for improvement.


INSTALL:
$ plasmapkg -i plasma_pyweather.plasmoid

UPDATE:
I used the weather icons from here.
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Weather+Icons?content=84533

So, the credit goes to the original artist, painkiller10.

Note: I have implemented only for certain number of weather conditions, if you see a question mark image as weather conditions, please let me know, which condition it is and I will add the image for it.




Changelog:

2010-07-09:
For version: 1.7
- Fixed a typo
- Now doesn't crash when running without internet

2010-03-04:
For version: 1.6

- Fixed the bug with wrong calculation of Imperial units
- Changed the name of the images from *.svgz to *.svg, because the new KDE - 4.4 stupidly considered all *.svgz files as gzip file and showed no images



2010-01-18:
For Version: 1.5
Changed the names of the units from US t Imperial and SI to Metric to be technically correct.

WARNING: If you already have an old config, you will get N/A for all temperatures until you select the proper unit system from the settings.





2010-01-13:
For Version 1.4:
Raffaele kindly submitted a patch for the bug fix. I didn't even know about the bug as it appears only for certain cities. Now the plasmoid can deal with incorrect format of wind condition.



For version 1.3
- Fixed the bug in Kubuntu. Now it is possible to save settings.
- Added new conditions for overcast, smoky and snow

for version 1.2

- Bug Fix:
Although, I could not reproduce the bug reported by many, about th configuration, I hope to have fixed it.

For version 1.1
- Bug Fix:

Now, the parameters are url-encoded to allow city names with spaces, thanks to Virginia Brassesco for pointing out the bug.

Using Kubuntu 9.10. Installed using Plasma installer without any problem.

It loses all the settings at every reboot.

Please advise.

If you're comfortable monkeying around with code, it's pretty simple to change the default location from Munich to wherever you are. http://github.com/rangalo/plasma_pyweather has the source code. Go to /rangalo-plasma_pyweather-1c000f3/contents/code and open up the file main.py in your favorite text editor, go to line 44 or so, and change the default settings. You'll have to change the name of the plasmoid so it doesn't conflict with the original version when you install this, and I forget how I did that, but I have faith in you. If you need more clarification, I'll gladly try to make my explanation more straightforward.

You are correct.

It is easy to change the default location.

Moreover, you should have a file .weather.cfg file in you home folder. You can also edit the file manually and set the location there.

Meanwhile, I am now back from vacation and try to fix the issue permanently. Actually, I use debian and I haven't had this problem.

Thanks,
Hardik

Try to install with plasmapkg command like following.

1. download the plasmoid file.

2. plasmapkg -i <path_to_plasmoid_file>

Make sure you don't have the older version of the plasmoid.

plasmapkg -l | grep weather

Above command will give list of weather plasmoids installed.

plasmapkg -r plasma_pyweather

above command will remove the older version if already installed.

Then reinstall.

Thank you for the quick reply but it still doesn´t work! It´s not already installed and the error message is still shown. Do I need root privileges to install?

Generally you don't need root access for installing a plasmoid.

I don't have any clue why the installation fails in your case from the error message.

Perhaps it´s a KDE-Bug and I guess I should wait for a new KDE 4.3 release.
Thanks for your help!

 Can't get weather of Hong Kong

Hi.

Thanks for your great work, I love its simplicity.

My problem is that a message of "This object could not be created for the following reason: Script initialization failed" would appear if I want to set my location to Hong Kong.

It worked flawlessly for other locations like Munich, Beijing or Macau. I tried "Hong Kong,Hong Kong", "HongKong,HongKong", "HongKong," and "HongKong" in google, i.e.
http://www.google.com/ig/api?weather=mylocation, all seems to give correct result. But if I have these setting in the configuration, it just wouldn't work.

Hard-coding my location into main.py and weatherConfig.py gives the same error.

I'm using Kubuntu 9.10. Thanks.

This was due to wrong format of wind condition for certain cities.

Raffaele has submitted a nice patch and the bug has bin fixed in the latest version 1.4 of the plasmoid.

 Invalid Temperatures

 
 by mattheyu on: Feb 6 2010
 
Score 50%

I'm located in Waco, TX, running Kubuntu 9.10. I have the units set to imperial.

It currently states the the high for tomorrow is 127 F. I know it gets pretty warm in Texas, but not quite that hot.

I assume the applet is fetching the temperature in Celsius and then converting it, but there is an error in the formula. I'd fix it myself, but I'm not sure where to start.


Thanks,
Mattheyu

Having the same problem in openSuse 11.2 KDE 4.2.5. I would look into the source too, but don't have much time these days. However, I will provide the necessary formula in case you need it:

Fahrenheit= [(9/5)*Celsius + 32]

Example: Fahr.= [(9/5)*6 +32]= 42.8 I think the plasmoid was giving somewhere around 83.

Good luck fixing this code! Your weather applet is the best I've tried, so I look forward seeing the Imperial temperatures fixed.

Best to you!

Hi Guys,

There is a bug !

I just fixed it locally and will upload the fixed version soon.

Actually, I was using the same formula, but the change of the names of the units (Metric and Imperial) introduced this bug.

With the new upload the bug should be fixed.

Thanks and sorry for the annoyance.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
