Yet Another Weather Plasmoid.
There is nothing wrong with the ones that exist, I just wanted something more colorful.

This plasmoid belongs to other people, it would not be where it is without their help. See the README.

Please help with additional themes and translations, thanks.

For the latest unstable version:
svn co https://yawp.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/yawp/trunk yawp

tar -jxf yawp*
cd yawp*


0.4.5 (23 Mar 2013)
* Bugfix: Desktop mode is not reusing applet size from last session.
* Bugfix: yaWP crashes in systemtray with KDE 4.10

0.4.4 (17 Mar 2012)
* New desktop painter has been added. Yawp can be configured to use the traditional or the new one for desktop and/or for popup window.
* Panel painter has been rewritten
* Initialization stuff of yawp has been moved to init method, because yawp crashes on KDE 4.8 due to the usage of not initialized components.
* Usage of KMessageBox has been replaced within DlgAddCity, otherwise yawp crashes on KDE 4.8.5 (some earlier versions might be included as well).
Using KMessageBoxes within KConfigDialog (yawp settings dialog) still works as expected.
* Google ION has been removed, because Google does not support this service any longer.
* Updating and fixing translations
* Bugfix: yaWP did not update weatherdata periodically after hibernation - it is working now

0.4.3 (17 Apr 2012)
* Show current RealFeel temperature under current temperature (thanks to Alain Soucy)
* Non-modale city search dialog
* Implementing public slot configChanged() to behave like a standard plasmoid - yaWP can be configured from external programs (e.g.: javascript)
* changing internal handling of extender (KDE 4.8 only) - when plasmoid will be used in desktop mode extender is not used and will be destroyed, when plasmoid is moved to panel a new extender will be created
* little tweaks to horizontal panel layout, adding more spaces between icons
* Ukrainian translation updated (Thanks to Yuri Chornoivan)

0.4.2 (04 Jan 2012)
* Adapting yaWP to KDE 4.8
* ION AccuWeather is showing closer maps for cities of the United States.
* Workaround crashes in city search dialog in KDE >= 4.7.4
* Frech and Slovak trasnlation updated
* Fixes in Wunderground ION
* Fix double translation for Short day names

0.4.1 (03 Dec 2011)
* Add ability to open forecast in browser (if URL is provided by ION)
* ION wunderground is returning a sorted list of cities (airport stations are listed on top of list,
because in general terms this station type contains more weather information than the personal weather station type).
* ION Wunderground is supporting satellite maps as well
* ION accuweather is not using a config-file for satellite image mapping any longer (feature has been added in version 0.4.0
but I think this was a stupid idea). Satellite images will be hard coded mapped to location in ION.
* Translations updated (CZ, FR)
* Several little bug fixes - including geometry issues

0.4.0 (13 Nov 2011)
* Bugfix: text in animation area jumps up or down at start and at the end of animation
* applets painting methods has been extracted and rewritten, for re-use and hopefully the new painting methods are well structured
* yaWP supports externder items (in panel mode only) - extender item interacts with user like desktop mode.
In panel mode:
When user clicks on the applet (but not on the weather forecast icons) the extender pops up.
The behavior of the applet for clicking on the weather forecast icons can be configured in the config dialog on page "Panel"
option "Use interactive weather icons". When this option is checked the weather icon will toggle between day and night
(in case we have weather information for day and night) otherwise the extender will appear.
* Removes old files from cache directory $HOME/.cache/yawp on a regular base.
* The install script install.sh uses more CPU cores if available. Could be override by -j script option.
* Turkish translation (thanks to Hasan Kiran)
* Czech, Slovak and French translation updated
* Changing unit system in config dialog will force auto-update.
* AccuWeather will use a config file for satellite mapping.

0.3.6 (12 Dec 2010)
* Traverse through all locations periodically (optional)
* Page 'Settings' from config-dialog has been redesigned to gain more space
* Fixing update bug in Wunderground Ion.
* Algorithm that is doing the text layout for the details area has been simplified
* Fix API breakage in 4.5.2/4.6

0.3.5 (8 Oct 2010)
* Fix compilation error on KDE 4.5.2
* Patching ions to work with new weather-data-engine, thanks to Raymond Wooninck
* Fixing legal issues (The source code of the standard ions used as the base)
* Ion is checking state of pressure, instead of just coping the data
* Fix issues with sunrise/sunset
* Prefer millimeters of mecrcury to torr on KDE 4.5
* Fix KDE version check - consistently use KDE_IS_VERSION

0.3.4 (7 Jul 2010)
* Fix torr description.
* Fix problems with some ions when yawp runs under ru locale
* Fix compilation error on PCBSD (thanks vvheritagevv) for patch.

Ion Google, AccuWeather and Wunderground returning observation time, as well.
* Timestamps for sunrise and sunset will be returned in the new timestamp format (when compiling with kde 4.3 and above - timestamps in the standard ions had been changed)
* Google is returning more information of location to show the right flag. User needs to entered a more specific search text to add a new city.
* Timezone management
* Fix compilation problems with gcc 4.5 (thanks to Kai Wasserbäch)

 Timezone not saved

I'm using plasmoid-yawp-0.3.6-1.1 in openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.6. The time zone isn't being saved for the cities I have set up.

It defaults to America/Adak and it will not save any changes I make.

What provider and cities do you use? The characterized scenario does not happens on my system...so I suppose it's a bug in SuSE's KDE version or the package provider has been modified the source code in order to create the package yaWP.

You might want to compile yaWP from source code to check if this still happens:
1) receive the source code of yaWP using the following command:
svn co https://yawp.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/yawp yawp
2) compile & install it using the script ./install.sh (within the root directory of yawp)
3) restart KDE

I'm using Wichita Mid-Continent Airport (KS) with NOAA and Garden City, Ks with wunderground.

I've found that Wichita keeps defaulting to America/Adak and Garden City defaults to America/Denver. Neither one will save any changes.

I'm not interested in compiling from source so I guess I'll file a bug report with openSUSE.

I tested the behaviour of yawp with your cities and providers and set a timezone for this cities. When I restart KDE, this cities still have the configured timezone. So I guess there is a bug in SuSE's KDE or in the yawp-package you are using...so I guess you have to send a bug-report to the package-distributor.

YAWP works better than expected for me. Another Weather Plasmoid seems to lock up permanently after about 5 logins; YAWP continues to work and I see no problems. Interesting that nearly everything is clickable and this changes some element of the interface

Definitely a 'must have'.

I love this little widget. There's one thing that puzzles and annoys me, though: any time after yawp needs to be reinstalled, it also needs to be completely reconfigured as well.

I just upgraded my Linux system. I am using separate partitions for the system and for /home, so the user's data is the same as it was before. I had to reinstall yawp, because the old version didn't work on the new system any more. After reinstalling and launching yawp, I had to configure the locations and theme again.

Why is this happening? Why doesn't yawp find the user's data after re-installing?

Yawp configuration is stored in the plasma configuration file. It could happen than plasmoids failed to start are removed by Plasma. In this case, configuration is lost.

Unfortunately, we cannot prevent this. The best is to re-install all plasmoids when KDE version changing.

Thanks for the answer.

Where is this plasma configuration file stored, that you mention? Is it a global file, so all users will have to use the same configuration or did you mean that every KDE version has its own configuration file?

If it is the latter, do you think it will be possible to get around this by making yawp using its own configuration file in some future version?

you should looking for file plasma-desktop-appletsrc. I have it in folder ~/.kde4/share/config/.

It contains a configuration of all plasmoids for current user. Storing configuration separately is not easy as you can have more instances of Yawp on desktop.

Reinstalling a failed plasmoid (referring to at least one weather plasmoid, but NOT YAWP) did nothing for me, and I tried reinstalling several times, in several installations of KDE 4.4.X (on different machines, and with reinstalls and fresh installs).

In my experiences, reinstalling a Plasmoid is not a guarantee of restored performance for some Plasmoids.

Reinstallation does not removes the configuration. The best is to test it with blank profile (default plasma configuration).

When you update your system, are you updating yawp as well? Or do you remove it and reinstall it? If you do remove/install yawp, are you logged in KDE while you do so? I assume configuration will be kept when your not logged in KDE when you remove & install yawp, because KDE is managing this configuration file - and all applets just store/read/remove data from it through KDE-API (to make sure all applets operate on its own data only).

 Not working in KDE 4.6

I'm trying to make it work on Kubuntu 10.10 with KDE 4.6 from kubuntu backports ppa. running ./install.sh returns an error:

CMake failed. Your system probably does not meets all requirements.

Also when I try to install the package from KPackageKit, it says it depends on libweather-ion4a. When I choose the libweather-ion4a package to install Kpackagekit wants to remove 7 packages to be able to install it, including plasma-desktop and kubuntu-desktop. Is there anything I'm doing wrong?

there should be some error in log. Or post the whole log somewhere, so we can check.

Regarding to ubuntu installation. I don't using it, but it looks like you want to install package to different version of KDE and it wants to uninstall it. Again, if you post the log somewhere, we can look on it.

Hi all,
I just realized that name of days in Forecast details are not translate.

I don't know why, but I think this was translate before...

In .po file, this name are translate:

#: po/rc.cpp:241
#: rc.cpp:241
msgctxt "Forecast for day"
msgid "Monday"
msgstr "Lundi"

#: po/rc.cpp:242

msgid "Wednesday"

Where is the problem ?

Sorry for late response, do you still have the problem? I just tested yaWP with German language and names of day have been translated on kubuntu 10.04 with KDE 4.6.5. Therefore I doubt the problem is inside of yaWP. Have you updated KDE and/or your system? Maybe I can try it on Kubuntu 11.10 with KDE 4.7 this weekend. Have you started yaWP as plasmoid - I noticed that the test application (build/unittests/plasmoidtest) is not translating all texts (probably the test-application is not loading the translation file for yaWP and use just the already loaded translations).

The problem has disappeared, I don't know why...

May be, it's because I test KDE 4.7, and not all packages are up-to-date.

Thank for your reply.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
