Description

Weather widgets are designed to display weather information coming from the Open Weather Map service (which provides free weather data and forecast API).


Note Notes:
  • These widgets require firmware 3.x or later to be present on the HMP.
  • Any widget version below 2.6 should not be used.
  • After downloading the widget(s), you must add your unique API key to be able to retrieve data from the OpenWeather provider.
  • The weather icons are loaded from the SpinetiX server by default (there are no icons included in any of these archives). Alternatively, you can download the weather icon set, put the icons inside your project and change the icons source path inside the JS file (e.g., var icon_src = "/icons/").

Add API Key

To use the 2.6 version of the weather widgets, the following must be done:

  1. Go to http://openweathermap.org/appid and sign up to get unique API key on your account page .
  2. Open Scripts/openweather.js file in a text editor.
  3. Find the string apiid: null // API ID .
  4. Replace it by apiid: "your_api_key" .
  5. Save the changes.

Download

Weather widgets pack

The complete archive containing all five weather widgets (Weather_1.svg, ... , Weather_5.svg) and a JavaScript file (openweather.js - included by each widget).
