WebsitedataT.json

From Cumulus Wiki


This Cumulus template file is found in the web sub-folder of the MX distribution from release 3.10.1 onwards.

It supplies the variable information that can be included in a web page by using Cumulus web tags to create a JavaScript Object Notation (.json) file.


File details

This lists all the JSON variables that can be uploaded to your web server. Note that it is designed to work with the MX default web pages that you upload just once from the webfiles sub-folder of your MX installation.

The file has to cater for the majority of people using the default web site, and assumes use of a Davis weather station, therefore its content might not be optimised for your use. The default web pages, even if you customise them, can only display JSON variables that are defined in this files (as per tables below) and formats for content are fixed.


If you want to use this file as the basis of your own JSON based file uploads (either because you want to change the fixed formats in provided file, or because you are not using the default web site):

  • Should you wish to tailor it, the best practice is to take a copy into a new folder, edit that copy, possibly into 3 separate files, and use the Extra Web Files settings to get it processed and uploaded at your preferred interval.
    1. You may realise that Static information (marked as such in lists below) rarely changes, and so the first file can be uploaded once a day using the EOD selection
    2. Equally, the Yesterday group only changes at rollover, and again included in that first file uploaded once a day using the EOD selection
    3. Most of the rest of the information can change during a day, and is best uploaded in a second file at your real-time interval (if that is enabled)
    4. You might chose to upload some information in a third file that is uploaded at the defined standard interval

Options

There are 3 fixed pieces of information conveyed by this file defining options:

  1. "useApparent" = whether Apparent Temperature or Feels Like temperature is required
  2. "showSolar" = whether a solar sensor is providing solar information or not
  3. "showUV" = whether a UV sensor is providing Ultra Violet information or not

List of variables

Listed in the order they appear in the file, and grouped as delimited by blank lines in the file. Blame the developer who created the file, not the contributors here, for any difficulty in finding a particular definition.

Static information

Web tag_name JSON Variable Function
<#locationenc> "location" The station location (as you entered in Settings) encoded for HTML
<#update> "update" The date and time of the last web site update. The default format depends on the locale you use to run Cumulus
<#version> "version" The version number associated with the MX release installed e.g. 3.10.1
<#build> "build" The build number associated with the MX release installed e.g. 3122
<#latitude> "latitude" The station latitude (as you entered in Settings) encoded for HTML e.g. N 59& deg;&nbsp;14&#39;&nbsp;33&quot; prints as N 59o 14" 33'
<#longitude> "longitude" The station longitude (as you entered in Settings) encoded for HTML.
<#altitude> "altitude" The station altitude value encoded for HTML (i.e. figure, '&nbsp;' and units) in either feet or metres, above sea level, just as you entered in Settings (so it is more complex to extract number for script arithmetic); e.g. 123&nbsp;m
<#recordsbegandate> "recordsbegandate" and "recordsbegandateISO" Date when usage of MX began. The default format for first JSON parameter depends on the locale you use to run Cumulus, the second JSON parameter always returns a four digit year, then a hyphen, then a 2 digit month number, then a hyphen, then a 2 digit day od month number; this is using the date formatting element of ISO 8601 Data elements and interchange formats
<#forum> "forum" Defined within MX to include Universal Resource Location (URL) for the Cumulus Support Forum as hosted by Freddie, encoded for HTML menu using anchor tagging as ::<a href="https://cumulus.hosiene.co.uk/index.php">forum</a>:
<#forumurl> "forumurl" The raw URL, but without encoding for menu. Not available before version 3.10.1 release build 3116
<#webcam> and <#webcamurl> "webcam" and "webcamurl" You can supply a URL within the Settings that will be output by these web tags. It can be used for a web cam page, or any other web page. The formatting is as for the forum, with or without the HTML anchor.

There are more pieces of Static Information in the group that follows the blank line, and called here "Current Conditions", each is identified as such.


Current Conditions

Web tag_name JSON Variable Function
<#currcondenc> "currcond" MX will look for a currentconditions.txt file in the same folder as CumulusMX.exe. The contents of this file will be encoded as HTML (i.e. all characters above {decimal base} code 159 will be encoded as HTML entities; for example this would encode any use of symbol for degree), and output through this web tag. The file will be deleted once Cumulus has processed it, so you need a process to create the file again and again.
