Home Weather Station website template by Brian Underdown (weather34)

Brian has developed a one-page, elegant personal weather website template that supports many different weather software programs. In late 2018, he has turned over development and support for all but the Meteobridge NANO version to other developers. He has graciously allowed us to host the Cumulus version here on the Cumulus Wiki. Ongoing support for this version will be provided through the Cumulus Forum and changes/issues via GitHub.

Home Weather Station Template for Cumulus

Download: [Home Weather Station Template for Cumulus distribution]

GitHub repository: https://github.com/ktrue/CU-HWS

If you can, use git clone to clone the master distribution to your website as this will enable easy future updates via a git pull command. Otherwise, you'll need to watch the master distribution for changes. You can use Git for Windows or install git (if needed) on linux systems using sudo apt-get install git. Once you have git installed, you can (using shell in linux or gitbash in windows) cd to the directory in which to install the template, then

git clone https://github.com/ktrue/CU-HWS ./

to clone the master distribution. For updates, just (using shell in linux or gitbash in windows) cd to the same directory and do

git pull

and you'll receive all the updated files. It won't clobber an existing settings1.php setup so can be done as often as you like.

If you want to do a 'mass update' of your CU-HWS website, just save off your settings1.php, download the distribution, unpack it, upload to your website and copy your saved settings1.php back .. then your site will be fully refreshed.

Please DO NOT MIX-n-MATCH the scripts from one distribution to another distribution. They are not compatible.

Brian's note

A note from Brian 2-Jan-2019 (quoted from https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=29817.msg366998#msg366998 ):

Features and appearance may vary across these versions and requests for additions should go to the individual maintaining these.. there are two other versions not quite ready for release but are based on using the Rasperry Pi.

The only supported (by weather34) versions are Meteobridge and the current running beta for Meteobridge NANO-SD. These versions are rich in features and additional features are added when time permits (a lot was added to the beta version in December 2018 it now supports 150 types of data variables, whole array of chart data for those with lots historical data with more to come).

The current Meteobridge NANO-SD beta version has lots of historical options and almanac pop ups for various data.

You will also find a version maintained by Meteobridge developer (Boris) built into the NANO-SD product which doesn't require a web server as it merely runs inside the Meteobridge NANO-SD control panel.
