Description:

For >=KDE-4.2

This is another weather plasmoid.
It aims to be highly customizable, but a little harder to setup than other weather plasmoids.
Nearly any weather forecast provider can be used, as long as the data is provided as html files (no flash).
The information how to extract the information from these html files is stored inside xml files.
Commands like grep, head, tail, sed, awk, ... will do this job.

For now, xml files for the weather providers

br.weather.com (°C) (city identifier example: BRXX0043)
de.weather.com (°C) (city identifier example: 80331 or UKXX0085)
espanol.weather.com (°C) (city identifier example: Ciudad-de-Mexico-MXDF0132)
fr.weather.com (°C) (city identifier example: Paris-FRXX0076)
in.weather.com (°C) (city identifier example: New-Delhi-INXX0096)
uk.weather.com (°C) (city identifier example: London-UKXX0085)
wetter.com (°C) (city identifier example: DE0006515)
myforecast.com (°C) (city identifier example: 12844)
myforecast.com (°F) (city identifier example: 12844)
www.weather.com.cn (°C) (city identifier example: 101010100)
accuweather.com US (°C) (city identifier example: 85001)
accuweather.com US (°F) (city identifier example: 85001)
accuweather.com world (°C) (city identifier example: 305448)
accuweather.com world (°F) (city identifier example: 305448)
ilmeteo.it (°C) (city identifier example: Roma)
pogodynka.pl (°C) (city identifier example: Warszawa)
www.gismeteo.com (°C) (city identifier example: 4944)
openweathermap.org (°C) (city identifier example: id=2643743 or q=London,UK)
openweathermap.org (°F) (city identifier example: id=5506956 or q=Las Vegas,US)

are included, but feel free to write your own ones.
Please note, that some of the xml files might not work properly for all locations.
If they don't, try to update your definition files: either install latest cwp release or/and download latest xml definition
file package from
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/show.php?content=98925
and unpack the xml files into ~/.kde4/share/apps/cwp (the cwp application folder inside your kde directory).

To access extended information about current weather condition, left-click inside the current weather description!
The time, when the provider updated his weather information is shown italic when clicked on update time.

CWP saves current weather data on exit inside $HOME/./share/apps/cwp folder, so after crashes you might want to clean up
this directory, or completely remove it.

Parts of the source code are taken from weather plasmoid 0.4, KDE 4.2, qimageblitz, yaWP.
Thanks to the developers!

If you experience any bugs, please report them here.
Running
plasmoidviewer plasma_applet_cwp
or starting plasma from the console
might give you some debug information.

 Hiding snapshot time

 
 by oboulonis on: Aug 13 2009
 
Score 50%

Hi,
could you add an option to hide snapshot time information ?
My city name and the time display overlap. Resizing the plasmoid does not help.
If you implement such an option, could you add the snapshot time information along with other weather data (Humidity, Wind, Pressure, ....) in the tooltip, when the "Hiding" is activated ?
Thanks a lot for your very useful plasmoid!

In configuration dialog, uncheck "Show update time" button (on the first tab, at the bottom).

I'll think about your suggestion adding update time to tooltip / extended weather information dialog.

I would like to display things like humidity, barometric pressure, dew point, visibility and UV index. I had a quick look at the code to see if it appeared that this should be working and it appears that the code and the XML files support this but it also appears that this is not working. I am not sure why but at least on my system none of the data:current:additional items are being displayed.

In addition I found what appears to be a bug in data/www_weather_com.xml; line 58 reads:

uv_index="grep UV\ Index: | sed...

but should probably read:

uv_index="grep UV Index: | sed...

since there is no line feed in the "UV Index:" line on the web page.

Click anywhere inside current weather information (for example current temperature), and a window with the desired information is shown.

Some weather providers don't offer all this information, so only some information might be shown.

for this great plasmoid :) It really roxx

Is there any chance that you could implent www.yr.no to it?

That site is (as far as I know) the best even for us in Sweden (the north at least) to predict the weather.

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.
