Weather Tile widget generation from theweather.com

JB Bentz 6 months ago in Media Tiles / Weather & Traffic • updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 weeks ago 13

I found a new resource that could come in handy for AT.  It's a weather widget that can generate an image, rather than just html.  Its fully customization, and may work for other tile sizes.  I just started screwing around with it. check it out:

The source can be found here - https://www.theweather.com/widget/

Great find, JB! Thanks for the share...


...Terry.

still testing some things, but it definitely works for other tile sizes too:

On a related note; folks that have a web server / Ruby and some extra skills should check out this Article on creating custom Media Tiles using Weather Underground; with thanks to Jim Knight.

Hi JB,

it looks nice but I am not able to add it as tile.

could you please help me with how you added it in AT.


Thanks

Nishant,

First create a Media object, using the left-navigation column, My Media.  Then it will be available in Panel Builder to add as a Media Tile.

Just as Terry said....and only copy the url  portion of the code they provide.

Thanks, This worked well. I like the different styles.

Is there any way to get around the "3" tile width dimension?  I am trying to get more than 3 days in there and it ends up extremely compressed when horizontally oriented.

Yeah, we really should bump up tile dimensions...

make sure you use the "image" option, and only copy the image URL...not the preceding code.

It should look like:  "https://www.theweather.com/wimages/foto72e6d565de9dfdfefb9b7c0c93b0938c.png"

sorted now i just forgot to put the 'png' at the end. stupid and silly mistake

image option???  Sorry, im new at this.  1st day in.
