PHP/AJAX Website Template Set - Settings-weather.php - WSN-Plugin

The configuration for Settings-weather.php discussed here is for the WSN-Plugin.

Note: WeatherSnoop Version 2.1.1 or later is required in order to upload the weather.json file used for conditions display.

For WeatherSnoop Version 2.1.1:

  • The weather.json file contains only current conditions and no historical data so
    • no daily min/max temperature display on the ajax-dashboard or the thermometer graphic on the home page.
  • The wxgraphs.php page will not show any station-created graphs as WeatherSnoop does not currently upload any image files.

WeatherSnoop Configuration settings in Settings-weather.php

$SITE['WXtags'] = 'WSNtags.php';
This setting specifies the filename of the WeatherSnoop weather tags processing script. This script reads the WeatherSnoop weather.json file and loads the data in a $WX[] array with the WeatherSnoop tag names used as the key to access the data in the associative array.
Note: you may need to edit the WSNtags.php file to change the $JSONfile = './weather.json'; line to point to where you have WeatherSnoop upload the weather.json file if it is not the same directory as your website document root.
$SITE['ajaxScript'] = 'ajaxWSNwx.js';
This setting specifies the filename of the AJAX JavaScript that will read the WeatherSnoop weather.json file and update your pages with new data.
Comment out this setting (by placing either # or // in the front of this line) if you do not want AJAX updates active on your website pages.
$SITE['conditionsMETAR'] = 'KSJC';
This setting specifies the ICAO/name of the near-by METAR station that will be used to provide current conditions (weather/sky cover) for the ajax-dashboard and ajax-gizmo.
A list of nearby METAR names can be found using the find METAR query script.
$$SITE['DavisVP'] = true;
This setting specifies whether you have a Davis VP/Vue station.
= true means you have a Davis VP/Vue station
= false means you do not have a Davis VW/Vue station and the display of the VP forecast on the ajax-dashboard is suppressed.
$SITE['UV'] = true;
This setting specifies whether your station has a UV sensor.
= true means your station has a UV sensor.
= false means your station does not have a UV sensor which will result in the ajax-dashboard displaying a UV forecast in that area instead of the UV sensor value.
$SITE['SOLAR'] = true;
This setting specifies whether your station has a Solar sensor.
= true means your station has a Solar Radiation sensor.
= false means your station does not have a Solar Radiation sensor which will result in the ajax-dashboard displaying a UV forecast in that area instead of the Solar sensor value.
