This website summarises weather data logged by a Davis Vantage Pro weather station which is downloaded to a Raspberry Pi credit card sized computer. This is an awesome and very cheap piece of hardware and no household should be without one!
Communication between the Pi and the weather station is handled by the very polished and highly customisable Weewx software (version 3.2.1). Weewx downloads a data record from the weatherstation every 5 minutes and stores it in a database on the Pi. It also creates all the graphs and webpages which are uploaded to the website every 5 minutes, and also to Weather Underground.
This website uses a custom skin which uses Bootstrap to deal with most of the layout and presentation. The gauges and the history tables are generated by Python scripts which hook into Weewx.
The code for gauge rendering (gaugeengine.py) and history table generation (historygenerator.py) can be found on github: github.com/brewster76/fuzzy-archer
You can install this using the Weewx extension installer. Download the extension somewhere onto your system: v2.23.tar.gz
cd /home/weewx [or where your base install is] bin/wee_extension --install=[wherever you've put the .tar.gz archive]
sudo wee_extension --install=[wherever you've put the .tar.gz archive
Check out these sites which use the customizations:
We'd love to hear from you if you are finding the skin useful! Drop us an email and we'll add you to the list.
