    Re: Conky weather scripts using Accuweather/WUnderground/NWS/Weather.com

    The spanish letters with accent marks appear as html code in accuweather's raw files.
    In order to replace them with their equivalents, I used sed commands, something like:
    Code:
    sed -i 's/& # 123;/é/g
    (I added spaces, otherwise the code will be parsed again).

    This command should replace the html code & # 123; with the letter é.
    But when I put the script in a post enclosed in code tags, the html code was parsed and the command became
    Code:
    sed -i 's/é/é/g
    which is of course rubbish.
    The same thing happened with the french script.

    Hello Teo...

    Very nice work...just one very little adaptation I made to your script (in fact two, to be honest...)
    1, I've added a 'workdir' variable at the begining of the script and moved the 'address' variable at the begining of the script


    2, I've added an egrep to recover the value of the gusts of wind (Rafales in french)

    at line 238 in your french script I have inserted the following code

    HTML Code:
      egrep -i 'Rafales' $workdir/first_days_raw > $workdir/gusts
     sed -i -e 's/^.*"> //g' -e 's\ k.*$\\g' -e 's/ //g' $workdir/gusts
    3, (yes i know I said 2...)
    I've removed the units of the wind speed by adding this to be able tu put a space between the value and the unit...(just cosmetic...)

    HTML Code:
    sed -i -e 's\km/h\\g' $workdir/curr_cond
    your script works perfectly and I'm working on some conkys using this...

    as you can see on the image (in red the gusts day/night)..still have to find a way to display only one value in function of the moment (day or night)

    4, I hope my english is not too bad...

    Post Re: Conky weather scripts using Accuweather/WUnderground/NWS/Weather.com

    Hello there,
    I really appreciate the job you're doing even if I don't really know what that means.
    And I think you can consider me as a 'beginner'.

    Anyway. Here are my questions :

    As TBG has written this out on his first post :
    They all rely on the same principle: download a bunch of pages, parse them and isolate the necessary info for conky to find.
    and as I am from Switzerland*, I wonder if it is possible to go searching for informations on my national meteo service website which is a simple html page ?
    By doing that, I can get the most pertinent informations on my local weather.

    I have absolutely no idea on how to do such a thing. So, if some of you can lead me to some kind of nice tutorial or a HowTo for writing a file that can goes search these weather informations I need ; it would be great.

    The second thing is that I basically used, as a standard user, the VinDSL conky (nice job !).
    It was pretty hard for me to make things go on properly ; I had to understand the code from zero. So, if it's possible to insert the grabbed weather informations in 'my' existing conky, it would be the ultimate dream . I do not need fancy icons or anything, but just to fit in there.

    That's it.
    Thanks

    *There isn't such a big Ubuntu community here...

    First of all, there is a HowTo for VinDSL's Conky. Check my Sig, I wrote it myself.

    Second, all you need is the URL for a page that has your weather on it. If you have a web page that has your weather, even if it's not Accuweather, Weather Underground, or Weather.com, you just need that URL. Find a page that has your particular weather displayed, and copy the URL here. The magic will happen when someone sees your URL and turns it into a script.

    Once it's a script, it generates output files. In Conky, even VinDSL's Conky, you just need to insert a variable that looks at the output files and prints their results where the weather section is.

    READ THE VINDSL HOWTO! It'll get you going.

    Just for everyone's convenience. I have an archive of the Conky Fonts. All of them. Hopefully, one day, they'll just be one of the things people download regularly.

    Sorry for last week's inconvenience, crisis resolved (until the next one).

    If you download the scripts, you'll find a file called Script-1d_How_It_Was_Created.pdf.
    Althought it refers to the old version of the 1d script, I think you could find some valuable clues there.
