Weather report

Post by Greggus44 » Sat Jan 11, 2020 12:04 pm

I've been tasked with brain storming some upgrade options for clients on a big new build project ,so the plan is we have an approved design which we have sold to the development company then after that the clients can come to us and taylor it to suit them allowing it to be as simple or capable as they want,
So far I've had a few ideas I'm working on but one I want to try is a weather page maybe as the screen saver,
I want to display local temp and some forecast details, does anyone know a way this can be accomplished.

The setup has internet access and its linked to a semi commercial bms system but I can add external sensors as there appartments.

So was wondering if there is a way to link to a site or maybe have a small box that does it then we link to that.

Any thoughts

You can use a WebView page object to display a web page, at whatever size you wish

I've used https://weatherwidget.io with fairly good results - you can customise elements like text and background to match your app. What I really want to do though is find an online service that I can pull data from into DP and display maybe as a label (maybe a HTTP GET command or something like this?). Haven't found a solution yet but hope to at some point as I'm sure it's possible. If anyone has any ideas please feel free to share!
