Weather-Display ClientRaw Parser

This webtool provides a way to parse the contents of the Four clientraw files that are generated by Weather-Display. It looks at the URL location that you define to read the files that are there and then displays that information with field names and contents. The contents include both the default values found in the files and the calculated values for alternative formats.

Updated to version: 10.37S build 60 or higher

In order to view a clientraw file set, you need to enter in a URL that points to the PATH where your clientraw files are located. IF you are using WDLive, this normally would be the same directory that contains your WDL files.

Just press "Submit" with no WebSite URL specified to see the clientraw*.txt documentation using the current weather data files from Weather-Display.

Path must start with either:


and point to the directory that contains the clientraw files, NOT the actual filenames


NOTE: All uses of this script to access other websites are logged.


WD Parser Construction Credits

These individuals contibuted information and code to the project:

  • Kevin Reed
    Kevin, in collaboration with Eric Frisbee (who assisted in the initial testing of the scripts, and rewrote some of the subroutines used inside the script to make them more functional), wrote the original WD clientraw parser function, and offered it for use on his website.
  • Michael Holden
    This clientraw parser was originally developed by Valentinois and adapted by relayweather (Michael Holden) for the Saratoga templates.
  • Ken True modified the relayweather scripts for PHP7+ and to allow displays of clientraw* data from other sites via URL, just like the TNETweather version.
  • Brian Hamilton - Author of Weather Display
    Without Brian, there would have been nothing to parse. Also provided info on other data sets and keeps me up to date with changes to the current datafiles so that I can keep the program up to date.

Sadly, Kevin Reed passed away in January, 2018 and so inspired the development of this function so Weather-Display users could still see the clientraw*.txt documentation and current values on their websites.
This implementation uses the styling from the original wdparser page.
