V0.6 screenshot


[edit] Presentation

Mokometeo is a small python/elementary application fetching the weather forecast from WeatherUnderground weather pages

[edit] Installation

[edit] Dependencies

You need python-elementary and python-netclient to make it work.

[edit] OM and SHR

So to install it, you can do :

opkg install python-elementary python-netclient http://www.opkg.org/packages/mokometeo_0.6_arm.ipk

Also need dependancies (on SHR testing) :

opkg install python-netclient

[edit] Using Mokometeo

  • For version 0.5 and higher, once the package (and dependencies) is installed, simply click on the desktop icon. A default configuration file ~/.mokometeo.cfg will be created which can be edited to your liking. Previous and next locations are selected using the buttons at the bottom of the screen, and if a network connection is active the forecast can be updated using the Refresh button. The forecast for all locations is saved in the configuration file so that a network connection is not necessary for switching locations after starting mokometeo. The middle area (containing the forecast information) is now scrollable using the standard elementary finger scrolling action.
  • In the 0.2 version, there is a bug. To be able to use Mokometeo, please type theses commands before launching it:
mkdir /home/root/.mokometeo
mkdir /home/root/.mokometeo/img
cp /usr/share/mokometeo/question.png /home/root/.mokometeo/img/
  • for the german 0.3, you don't need this
  • Just click on the desktop icon Mokometeo.png called "Mokometeo" to load the software.
  • You will see a window appearing, with a 4 days forecast : Today, tomorrow (J+1), the day after (J+2) , etc.
  • You can use the Next and Previous buttons to change the displayed city.
  • If you have no internet connection, you will have to wait a little bit, and then the window will show "question marks" and "-" as min and max temperatures
  • Next time you starup Mokometeo, the last fetched data will be displayed.

Enjoy !

[edit] Configuring Mokometeo

[edit] Version 0.5 and higher

The configuration file ~/.mokometeo.cfg has a section named [Main] which looks like:

[Main]
units = celsius
lastview = 0
locations = Melbourne,AU:Perth,AU:Paris,FR

The locations line can be edited and colon (:) separated locations of your choice added. I've found that <city>,<country abbreviation> works well with the WeatherUnderground API. It's probably worth checking using this URL:

http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/GeoLookupXML/index.xml?query=Melbourne,AU

(or similar) to make sure it returns the location you're expecting.

The units line can also be changed to fahrenheit if desired.

[edit] Previous versions

  • By default, 2 cities are configured. You can change the cities and add more in the file
~/.mokometeo/mokometeo.conf

This file must contains at minimum 2 lines. The first line is

city,url

The second and next lines is the name of the city, and the url (tested with french yahoo weather urls), for example:

Paris,http://fr.weather.yahoo.com/FRXX/FRXX0076/index_c.html

[edit] Changelog

[edit] 2010-01-12 - v0.6

  • Added ability to add & remove locations using the GUI.
  • Fixed problem where a space in the location designation caused the script to abort.

[edit] 2009-12-14 - v0.5

  • Now uses the elementary GUI instead of Gtk+.
  • Now uses the Weather Underground site instead of Yahoo weather (better API).
  • Six days of forecast available.
  • Now uses a single file (~/.mokometeo.cfg) for configuration and location history. The .mokometeo directory is no longer needed.
  • Weather icons are not downloaded on the fly, they're part of the package.
  • History is saved for all defined locations

[edit] 2009-03-13 - v0.2

  • added some "print" in the code
  • debug the .mokometeo folder ; put the config folder in /home/root/.mokometeo/ instead of /.mokometeo/
  • test if the connection to internet is ok. If not, display question marks
  • backup the data each time data is downloaded and displayed. This data is used on the next Mokometeo startup
  • added the date and time when the data has been downloaded

[edit] 2009-03-12 - v0.1

[edit] Future improvements / To do list

  • Use the GUI to add/remove locations
  • debug the initial copy of /usr/share/mokometeo/question.png into /home/root/.mokometeo/img/
