- american settings (mph, inHg)
- proper offline cache implementation (requires C++ extension, therefore offline cache is no longer supported when installing through Add Widgets button)
- rendered meteogram for OWM and optionally for yr.no (it allows to be used by e.g. fahrenheit users)
- bugfixes

 appearance when on desktop

 by janet on: Mar 27 2016
Score 50%

When I use the widget via systemtray I get a popup with a simplified forecast (compared to the very detailed popup for the panel) for the next days.

When the applet the popup is the same as for the systemtray but blinks that short that you cannot recognize anything. How can this be fixed?

And a wish on top: Can you please (optionally) make the widget on the desktop look like the popup for the systemtray/desktop? So that you have a simplified yet more complete overview at on glance instead of the single temperature + symbol view?

ad 1) Systray expanded area has limited space. This is the main reason why the forecast is not so detailed. Do you think it should have also a graph?

ad 2) To be honest I don't know how to make the systray tooltip more persistent. In systray tooltip has limited possibilities.

ad 3) I can do that. I have limited time possibilities nowadays but eventually I'll get to it ;).

 Awesome! Feature requests...

 by VaporEidolon on: Apr 5 2016

Hi and thanks for this plasmoid!

I miss a couple of things:
1 - I don't get a cloud cover forecast as you do. Why?
2 - Why no prediction for rainfall amount?
3 - Additional providers. Those used do not really provide very good predictions in many areas. I suggest you could maybe try to use the forecasts from ECMWF - they are quite good, they use a large ensemble size to give an idea of the uncertainty.
4 - As asked before, the ability to have the plasmoid on the desktop, full time, with the full meteogram.
5 - If two consequent locations have the same name/alias, make them use the same scales. This way, I can compare the forecasts from multiple providers (just two right now) for the same area.

Thanks again, awesome plasmoid!

Thanks for positive feedback and for your suggestions!

ad 1) If you are using rendered meteogram (for OWM and optionally for yr.no) you don't have a cloud cover forecast. This is because I did not have time to work it in, yet. Or did you mean something else?

ad 2) I don't understand. Isn't it the precipitation bars in the bottom of the meteogram?

ad 3) I know, more providers :D. I'm planning weather.com or yahoo as the next one. I don't know ECMWF very well but it seems like they don't have much free data. Or can you point me to some free api from which I can consume XML or JSON?

ad 4) Will do.

ad 5) Uff, I'll put it on my TODO list but it won't be done anytime soon, sorry :).

1) I just looked at the snapshop above, and you have the cloud cover there, that's why I asked ;)

2) My bad, I'm an idiot! No rain for the next days where I live!
3) I was referring to these:
and these:
Unfortunately they have some kind of API, but I'm not sure it can be of help:
most data will probably be in Grib or NetCDF format, which if not good in this case. I did not think of the fact that you'll need something in plain text.
You may find some other general info about useful providers here:
4) Yay!
5) That's all right ;)

 Weather Underground Support

My weather source of choice is Weather Underground; so would love to see support for it.


Otherwise, recently decided to give this widget a try and have been enjoying it.

 widgets freezes

From time to time widget freezes. It stops/cannot reload and stays in that frozen state until logout/reboot. Plus circle constantly spins end eats cpu (pause does not stop the circle spinning).

 Can you ad a vertical line for the current time?

 by jerfly1 on: Jun 1 2016

I love the chart, could you add a vertical red line, maybe 10 pixels wide for the current time so it's easy to see where in the trend we lie?

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.
