As an alternative to my “openWeather” plugin based on Weather Underground’s free developer API (and after being recently faced with with an apparent lack of reliable connectivity with WU servers that derailed some of my home automation), I wrote a new plugin to fetch weather data from Dark Sky, also offering free weather data. Please see https://darksky.net/dev/
It is now published on the AltUI App Store as “DarkSky Weather” and can be installed following the attached instructions (also available from the plugin after it is installed).
The current version is 0.2 and is a beta version that may still contain bugs.
Version 0.3 beta is now available, featuring dynamic icon based on current weather and automatic location information upon install based on Vera/openLuup system setup.
I welcome any feedback.
Screen shots of the AlUI devices created by the plugin as well as of the plugin device variables available in the beta version are attached to this post as well.
It is designed to run on openLuup systems. It may work on a real Vera, but I did not test this (my only real Vera is a Veralite that I stripped off of all plugins to make it a zwave controller only, at last finally reliable… all my production and development systems are openLuup driven, with either Vera or Domoticz/openZwave controllers as “slaves” and that made my life so much easier while being cheaper…)
