Hello, Smile

Does Anyone have a suggestion for a simple desktop weather widget for Tahrpup-6.05?

I'd prefer not to use Pwidgets.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

What did you have in mind? A pretty desktop display, one that sits in the tray, a quick'n dirty curl script?

Hi Semme,
Oh! something simple, like the Pwidget's icon, a symbol showing rain, sun, wind, night time, daytime and the temperature. A small icon, non-intrusive, that can sit over on the starboard side of the screen.

Hi sky,
search for some simple conkyrc weather script. You can edit it to show what you want and comment out what you don't want.

Like this may be https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=139962

not a widget but a nice little weather script

Code:
#!/bin/sh
rxvt --geometry 130x45+0+0 -hold -e curl wttr.in/cardiff

location at the end can be a name or postcode/zipcode

As there's nothing extra to install, wttr.in's what I use.

Hey, thanks for that, Phil!

Very neat indeed. And easily modifiable, too! Nice one.

Cheers.

Nice open source weather widget that resides in tray but is a 40MB download.

"It's an Electron-based project, which as usual makes for a chunky download (over 40MB),
but there's no installation required and you can just download, unzip and run."

Hi, perdido.

Man, this stuff just keeps getting better...

Thanks for that one, mate; that's one of the neatest little apps I've seen for a long while. Very Happy I've got it up-and running in every single one of my Pups.....32-bitzers & 64-bitzers alike.

Cheers! Much appreciated.

Subject description: A Fun Bunch of Ideas
 

Hi Folks,
What a fun bunch of weather scripts and widget like stuff. Smile

So, while I play with some of the suggestions, I've temporarily solved the issue by putting my local weather station via https://www.wunderground.com as my home page on SeaMonkey.
That way I'll see the weather each time I bring up the browser.
Thank you, I'll leave the thread open for a while longer so we can collect some more ideas.

P.S. @ 666Philb

Is there a Pwidgets that works with Tahrpup-6.05?

@ Sky Aisling:-

AFAIK, pWidgets works with all Pups from 5-series onward for certain. Tahrpup was the very first Pup I ran full-time, and I've always ran pWidgets in Tahr, right from the moment I discovered it on the Forum, some 2-3 months later.

Mind you, I can't say for definite that it'll run with the Tahr 6.05 ISO. My own started life as Tahr 6.0, back in November '14, and reached 6.05 status via the Service Packs that Phil released for it over time.....

I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work. pWidgets has never given me problems yet. I also run an extension within Chrome, called 'Currently', which replaces my New Tab page.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/currently/ojhmphdkpgbibohbnpbfiefkgieacjmh?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog

.....which gives me my local weather every time I open a tab. It, too, works via Weather Underground. However, I can't say if it's available for any other browsers.

A few of the themes are non-free; they cost a small, nominal amount (somewhere between US$3-$5). Question Question Rolling Eyes

Mike, the Chrome apps are cool. Thank you.

Where do you get your download for Pwidgets for Tahrpup?
