My pleasure Matt, and Jay. Thank you also for your support and guidance in this project.

Users can now find the plug-in here - http://www.perceptiveautomation.com/fil ... php?id=103

I have also posted a new thread in the Weather Display Mac forum on its use here - http://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index. ... 104.0.html

Hope this is helpful for all Indigo/Weather Display users.

All the best,
Jim

Thank you Jim. Works great but took a reboot of the Mac. prior to reboot: undefined page requested "http://127.0.0.1:8176/wd/importData" from 127.0.0.1.

Heinz, great to see you got it working ! Nothing to do with the plug-in. The IWS needs to be restarted whenever adding plug-ins to Indigo so the reboot wasn't really needed. For others reading the thread just go to the Indigo4 menu and start local server and it should load the plug-in that first time for you.
I will adjust the install post to reflect a restart of the server being necessary. Thanks for that heads up.

All the best
Jim

I couldn't find "inside temperature" in testtags.txt. Am I missing it or not available?

Try %indoortemp% :lol:

So that would look like:
\&IndoorTemp=%indoortemp%
and would get to Indigo as:
"wd_IndoorTemp" as the label with the value in the value field.

ALSO, I made a big mistake in the Read Me file. All references to testtags.txt should be tagslist.txt. Sorry about that. I use testtags a lot for my weather website - mental block lol.
EDIT - I checked the read me file and it was correct. Turns out it was my post on Weather Watch Forum that was wrong. I corrected that.

Jay or Matt how would I resubmit the readme file with that revision?
Many thanks

All the best,
Jim

BTW, Jim, the readme was correct re the tagslist.txt. I picked up testtags.txt on a posting and didn't twig to it being wrong as I use it too :)

Just email us a new WDMac_Plugin.zip file and we'll replace the existing one.

Post Re: Getting weather data from Weather Display
I have downloaded and installed this plugin, and it works well. However, I would rather it did not post a message to the log with every update.

I am not a python programmer, but browsing the code, I find the lines:
Code: Select all
      # Push the log message to Indigo's Event Log window.
      self._Log("WD Weather Data Updated")


From context I glork that putting a "#" character in front of a line comments it out. If I comment out the "self._Log..." line, what to I then need to do to get it to recompile without the logging; restart the server? Will it break anything if I do that?

That's correct - just put the hash in front of it to comment out that line. Then, just stopo the Indigo Server ("Stop Server" from the "Indigo 4" menu) and start it back up and it will recompile the python code.

Thanks. It worked. Now, if I could just disable logging of the insteon events from my motion sensors, I could have a readable log.

Post Re: Getting weather data from Weather Display
I'm wondering if anyone is using Weather Display with Indigo and has an Oregon Scientific weather station. I'm looking at an Oregon Scientific WMR200A due to it's ability to monitor remote Thermometer & Humidity Sensors. I would like to confirm with someone that the data obtained from these remote sensors can be pulled into Indigo using the Weather Display Mac - Indigo Webserver (IWS) Plug-in.

Thanks for any comments.
