    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Greetiungs!
    Back in post 16803 I contributed my Conky with clock, calendar, sysmon and weather. Since then I have worked a bit more on the weather unit adding moonphase and changing the source of weather data. Both the mooonphase and weather now use the post option in wget to download a php-generated webpage and then parsing it down to the desired format. Moonphase is from the Navy Observatory and weather is from the NWS from a page developed for small device access. It is necessary to modify the post data for your location. I used the LiveHTTPHeaders tool in Firefox to determine exactly what was being passed. Sometimes this is echoed in the URL that comes back. The moonphase shell script modifies the post data which can lead to some interesting access capabilities.

    The moon font is 'negative' for display on a light background. Mine is dark so I have the moon phase in black laid over a full moon in light. It is also necessary to install the moon phase font.

    i get my weather in a similar way, using curl/grep/awk etc
    ive been wanting to get a weather icon so i just installed the conkyweather font and was looking for a list of what weather conditions = what letter
    so the above script is exactly what ive been looking for

    thanks

    and there is it down at the bottom... along with some added color and a few more bits and pieces

    edit - just realised that the weather icon is going to need a little more tweaking

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Yes, wnelson, we get it. But, I've already moved way beyond that. I have a graphical indicator system in place using ink, telling me how much of each cartridge is left. See?

    Code:
    ${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Photoblack' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<50}${image ~/Conky/Icons/LowInkBlackLED.png -p 145,57 -s 20x20}${else}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Photoblack' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}>=50}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Photoblack' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<60}${image ~/Conky/Icons/HalfInkBlackLED.png -p 145,57 -s 20x20}${else}${image ~/Conky/Icons/NormInkBlackLED.png -p 145,57 -s 20x20}${endif}${endif}${endif}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Yellow' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<50}${image ~/Conky/Icons/LowInkYellowLED.png -p 170,57 -s 20x20}${else}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Yellow' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}>=50}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Yellow' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<60}${image ~/Conky/Icons/HalfInkYellowLED.png -p 170,57 -s 20x20}${else}${image ~/Conky/Icons/NormInkYellowLED.png -p 170,57 -s 20x20}${endif}${endif}${endif}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Magenta' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<50}${image ~/Conky/Icons/LowInkMagentaLED.png -p 195,57 -s 20x20}${else}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Magenta' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}>=50}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Magenta' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<60}${image ~/Conky/Icons/HalfInkMagentaLED.png -p 195,57 -s 20x20}${else}${image ~/Conky/Icons/NormInkMagentaLED.png -p 195,57 -s 20x20}${endif}${endif}${endif}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Cyan' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<50}${image ~/Conky/Icons/LowInkCyanLED.png -p 220,57 -s 20x20}${else}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Cyan' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}>=50}${if_match ${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Cyan' | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's/%//'}<60}${image ~/Conky/Icons/HalfInkCyanLED.png -p 220,57 -s 20x20}${else}${image ~/Conky/Icons/NormInkCyanLED.png -p 220,57 -s 20x20}${endif}${endif}${endif}

    ${font TransponderAOE:bold:size=8}${voffset -20}${goto 150}${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Photoblack' | awk '{print $2}'}${goto 170}${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Yellow' | awk '{print $2}'}${goto 195}${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Magenta' | awk '{print $2}'}${goto 220}${execi 60 ink -p usb | grep 'Cyan' | awk '{print $2}'}${font}${voffset -15}
    We thank you for your contributions to the Conky world, but what you're showing is just the same as what you showed before. Nothing different. C'mon. Do a little better and show off a bit, will ya?

    @ 42dorian... i could probably link to maybe... ( hmmm this thread has now 16917 posts..so lets be conservative and say that 25% contain repetition (probably a whole lot more) ) 2200 posts that aren't "groundbreaking" in terms of conky content (i can claim my fair share of those posts)

    i think wnelson deserves some slack for bringing attention to the whole ink thing in the first place

    lets not be the conky thought police

    and in actual fact seeing as you yourself cited the execbar etc as amongst the least used of the conky objects, (and having tried the execibar myself recently) i think it is new to see that object being implemented

    edit - but im not the conky police either so it doesn't matter if i think its new or interesting
    wnelson has just as much right to post his conky code as anyone else and he should be able to do so without fear of being shot down

    a screenshot would be good alongside that code wnelson

    NO NO! I'm egging him on, not telling him off! He deserves to be egged on! He brought it to us, I showed him I did something completely different with it, HIS move now. C'mon mrpeachy! Play along! Be PLAYFUL with the guy! He brought us the new ink idea, let's have some fun with him. How many new guys come to us with useful stuff compared to problems?

    C'mon man. Stop assuming the worst all the time.

    That's fine, and I know you wouldn't intend any offence, but all I have (all any of us have) are the words on the screen and I did not take away from that post the meaning you were going for at all.

    Re-reading the post in light of knowing your intention, it's still very hard to read it that way.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    It was INTENDED to offend him, so he'd lash back with a better use of Ink. That's why it was written that way. Then we'd get a little fun in, playing with the new toy in Conky. He has no screenshots in any of his posts, so it also would've forced him to present one (or more, depending on how long it went on.) Hence why the post ended with "Do better and show off a bit."

    He's new to the rest of us, and considering he brought us the new toy, this is the fastest way I know of to prod him into us getting to know him better. He posts so rarely! I wanted to egg him on, not beg him to post. That's pathetic. SO EGG HIM ON ALREADY! Come on now.
