Website information (aeronautical weather) to cokny

Postby ciaone » 2019-02-20 19:56

Hello everybody, I'm trying to import specific information from this page -> The aim is to show LIRZ weather in conky. But I don't really know how to do that. Could anybody give me any hint?

Thanks a lot.

Inevitably someone has done what you want. Search the Internet for .conkyrc ; you will get many hits. Download or copy those that look like they might work and try them. When you find one that does what you want take a good look to see what they did and add the parts you want to your .conkyrc .

I don't know either, but I get a few promising results:
how to to show LIRZ weather in conky
(more complicated)

Just noticed the title say "cokny", never have heard of that, but probably the same search method would work, just replace 'conky" with "cokny".
If you meant "conky", this will be of use as well:

I use this script retrieve a weather text from my nearby airport; KYKM.

Code: Select all
xterm -g 72x15-1+39 -T "Yakima, WA Weather" -hold -e \
curl -sk

You should be able to substitute your source url after "curl -sk". In the US, aviation observations are published hourly unless there is a marked change.

This script pulls and displays the forecast for the same airport:

Code: Select all
# To change the forecast zone, replace wa/waz027 with another forecast zone.
# See <> for a list.
xterm -g 72x46-1+39 -T "Yakima, WA Forecast" -hold -e \
curl -sk

Unless your reports are more frequent, I would set up a hourly cron job to pull the info to a file and use this conky entry to display a local file:

This last weather scripts that pulls animated gif's of radar images and plays them back in ImageMagick:
Code: Select all
curl | \
 animate -immutable -loop 0 -title "PDT Radar Loop"
