Dear community,
I'm happy to present you the newest release of WorldWeather, which can be downloaded from the well known places as usual. This version contains a shelveset to share your plugin related settings and profiles across devices and services. In principle all network storages, cloud services (e.g. OneDrive, Dropbox) or any other storage you would like to use should work as expected.

To allow such a functionality, major changes inside the plugin code was necessary. Before using this new version and/or the sharing feature, it is highly recommended to follow the steps below:
  • To share passwords and keys, all synchronized devices must be in the same network domain or workgroup. Additionally a redeveloped crypthographic algorithm was required. Due to this change all saved passwords or provider keys must be entered again using the configuration dialog.
  • Before starting with settings and profile sharing, possible device or service specific configurations should be checked to prevent access or synchronization problems later. For more information, please take a look into the manual (chapter "Settings and Profile Sharing") or the troubleshooting guide.
  • In case you decide to disregard the sharing feature, the plugin will work in the same way as before.

Unfortunately from now on the release rate of this plugin must be reduced due to time and budget issues. I'm not able any longer to work nearly each evening on plugin improvements or enhancements. Of course bug fix releases will be published in a regular way, possibly in combination with the release cycle of MediaPortal. If you would support future development, I was pleased to receive a small donation. This would help to bring my 5-years old development environment back up to date. The donation link can be found in the first post of this thread and in the about box of the plugin.

Of course, I continue to look forward to your feedback, bug reports or feature requests. How quickly such changes can be implemented, the future will answer it.

Thank you and regards,
Micropolis

    Hello @Micropolis ,

    Thank you for the update. The possibility to share settings etc. across the network is a great feature.(y)

    However, in the last years it has become more and more difficult to find adequate weather media pictures (at least for Germany). The best views can still be found at the major public broadcasting stations' websites. While these used to be static png and jpg files they have now become interactive javascript displays, which, from what I understood, can not be used in the Weather plugin.

    The Germany links from the Wiki are either outdated or point to javascript websites.

    Is there a way to use the javascript-generated pictures?

    Thanks,
    HTPC_Sourcer

    Hello @HTPC_Sourcer,

    However, in the last years it has become more and more difficult to find adequate weather media pictures (at least for Germany). The best views can still be found at the major public broadcasting stations' websites. While these used to be static png and jpg files they have now become interactive javascript displays, which, from what I understood, can not be used in the Weather plugin.
    In principle, JavaScript is a programming language and cannot be interpreted by WorldWeather, because the underlying API or functions are a "black box" for most websites.
    Nevertheless, there is a technical way by using web debugging tools to determine the image URL, which has been generated by the script behind. When I've found enough time, I will prepare a separate manual to describe how the technic works. Until then you can take a look into my image overview sheet, which can be found here. Hopefully you can find something suitable.

    By the way: Any input to correct or enhance this overview document is absolutely welcome. More than nice it would be, when each WorldWeather user would contribute for his/her region or country.

    Regards,
    Micropolis

    I have problems with the place Rostock.
    The plugin takes the place with several providers.
    If the skin I want to select the location of Rostock, an error message.
    Can the test times someone?

    Ich habe Probleme mit dem Ort Rostock.
    Das Plugin findet den Ort mit mehreren Providern.
    Wenn ich im Skin den Ort Rostock auswählen will, kommt eine Fehlermeldung.
    Kann das mal jemand testen?

    Danke auch.
