Description:

A weather screenlet based on WidescapeWeather Screenlet (heavilly modified -just the graphics are the same) that fetches http://freemeteo.com, and provides localization for 21 countries, high low temperatures, option for local time for the region you choose (It needs python time zone library pytz. In Ubuntu install the python-tz package), units selection and weather description via the right click menu (Forecast description)

 Layout of screenlet

 
 by mkesdk on: Feb 20 2010
 
Score 50%

Still think it's the best weather screenlet available, but is it possible to "flip" it 180 degrees? I keep my screenlets on the right side of the screen like on Windows. And keep FreeMeteo in "mini" view and when I toggle next days forecast it changes position.If I could change it to have "weather now" to the right and next days to the left, that wouldn't be a problem.
Still as I said FAB screenlet.

Again thank you for your nice words but I'll answer to you the same as the previous request for a vertical layout. What you ask for if like creating a theme for the screenlet. That involves a great deal of work regarding the drawing code. I don't say I couldn't do it (although I don't know much of cairo libs) but It would need too much time right now (reading - learning - implement) that I don't have :-( (work, family,...) Maybe at summer time...

1. does it show something? What?
2. did you put the freemeteo's ZIP code area in the properties?
If yes then open a terminal and execute:
python ~/.screenlets/FreemeteoWeather/FreemeteoWeatherScreenlet.py
and copy-paste the output here

what happens if you double click on the screenlet? does it change between show / not show forecast?
Do you see current weather conditions? 1 icons by the city name?
In witch country/town do you live (if you don't mind answering...)?

nice! sometimes it get's a while until it fetches freemeteo... but that has nothing to do with the screenlet itself. I is up to the internet connection, the load on freemeteo's servers ...

 time updating

Nice screenlet, but I have one question. The time shown in screenlet doesn't updating itself. It only gets updated when I click on screenlet. Does somebody has the same problem, or just me?! Thanks in advance.

Hi! It is updating every 5 minutes. Not in realtime. I did that because it is not meant to be a clock screenlet and I didn't want to have many updates to keep memory and cpu low. Although if you wish to change it you can edit with a text editor ~/.screenlets/FreemeteoWeather/Freemeteoweatherscreenlet.py and change in line 32:
update_interval = 300
the 300 to whatever you wish. 300 is the update interval in seconds (300 seconds = 5 minutes).
I plan in the next minor update to add an option of "update now" and / or an option to change this update interval!

 No weather at all

 
 by TroublemakerDV on: Feb 6 2011

For my city the http request (captured by wireshark) looks like:

GET /default.asp?pid=23&gid=2026643&la=1&sub_units=1 HTTP/1.0
Host: freemeteo.com
User-Agent: Python-urllib/1.17

All seems to be OK. More, entering this URI into browser's address line, I reached the page requested.

But the server returns error 403 to the screenlet:

HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden

I think it can be caused by user-agent string:

User-Agent: Python-urllib/1.17

While browser sends its own correct ID.
The same situation is true for ZP of 2022890. And I getting only forever "Connecting..."

Thank you, now it works!

BTW, old version had number of 0.4.5, while newest have 0.2.2. Why so strange numbering?

... No, old version was 0.2. You might have downloaded the screenlet from somewhere else. Dont forget that the source code is avalaible to anyone so anyone might have changed it!

It was d/l-ed from screenlets PPA (launchpad.net) using standard Synaptic package manager from Ubuntu, I think.

# default meta-info for Screenlets
__name__ = 'FreemeteoWeatherScreenlet'
__version__ = '0.4.5'
__author__ = 'Nikiforakis Manos, Guido Tabbernuk'

the version 0.4.5 was propably from deb testing packages. Anyway after contacted with the screenlet-dev team and cowriter of freemeteo screenlet Guido Tabbernuk there will be one unified version of freemeteo screenlet under the number 0.4.6 and you are more than welcome to use the screenlets ppa!

Sounds good, definitely I will give it a try.

But I have two additional wishes.

1. Sometimes network-related screenlets hangs, if established connection broken suddenly. My ISP is piece of sh..t and quality of link is very mm-m... "floating": DSL connection may drop, DNS servers may go down etc...

After that screenlets like FMS or ClearWeather hung forever: even the login/logout does not help. I think it is because some flag stays unreleased.

So, may I suggest to limit the timeout to access network data, in order to not fall into endless loop.

It may look like "after specified time interval we closing socket(s), deleting flags and trying to re-open socket. not trying to suck the empty milk-bag"

2. Most important wish.
I hope that you (all FMS devs) will NEVER switch to gweather and gmetar. These libraries contain no my city at all.
Yes, I know how to insert the records I need into locations.xml, but I hate to do it after every update/upgrade.

FMS takes the city names from TFM.COM and let him continue to do so.

3. It is not a wish. Something like spoken thoughts.

Many sites may give the weather data. From browser (on computers and on my samsung s-8000 mobile) I prefer to use WeatherUnderground.com: their forecasts very similar to FMC's ones.

May be some one will create "the universal screenlet" capable to retrieve data from different servers, either on user's choice either altogether either in another combination.

Sorry, I don't speak Greek and can't explain my thoughts clear enough.
