Do you love having weather data on the desktop, as I do?
Well, if you do, I'd like to introduce you to the new conky+LUA script
that outshines conkyForecast by a mile. And unlike conkyForecast, it does 10 day weather forecasts!
conkyForecast is as dead as Elvis. It just doesn't work for most folks (mine still does but I love the new program even more)
This cutting edge conky+LUA script utilizes a feature not seen in modern conkies by the introduction of Clickable buttons. A Feature that has lots of conky addicts chomping at the bit.
mrpeachy has been at the top of his game.
falldown is responsible for the high quality weather images and the coding of iweather_falldown.lua.
Making this package a solid "Keeper" for Desktop Weather addicts and desktop eye-candy enthusiasts everywhere.
Each of the 10 day buttons down the right hand side is clickable and will cause the main windows of the applet to show forecast for that particular day.
The attachment shown is using the iweather_falldown.lua called by
conky -c ~/wun/conky_configs/wunrci
(used by default in wunrci) but there are several templates to choose from.
This only needs a couple of tweaks out of the box to have it up and running in no time.
An API key
Change all occurrences of /home/mcdowall
to your user name (/home/<user
<user> (your login userid or name)
NOTE: This script works for users all over the world and includes options to use either Metric or Imperial readouts.
Enjoy the Goodness!
