cinnamon-weather

Adaptation of Gnome Shell's weather extension for the Cinnamon desktop.

cinnamon-weather uses Semantic Versioning. For the current version number, see metadata.json.


Setup

OpenWeatherMap API Key

OpenWeatherMap does not require API key anymore! Big Thanks to them for supporting this applet!

OpenWeatherMap Location

The following formats are supported:

  • Zipcode, Country Code (e.g. 94111,US)
  • Latitude, Longitude (e.g. 37.77,122.41)

  • City, Country Code (e.g. London,UK), or ZIP, Country Code

If the location you try does not work, try using OpenWeatherMap's finder and paste the coordinates.


DarkSky API Key Setup

Go to DarkSky and create an account. Then go your Console section where you should find your secret key already created.

DarkSky Location

DarkSky only supports Latitude, Longitude format! (e.g. 37.77,122.41)


Requirements

Configuration

Right-click to access cinnamon-settings -> Applets -> Configure.

Known Issues

  • Translations in general and are in bad shape after the rework, contribute if you can, it is always much appreciated.
  • Sunset/Sunrise is not displayed correctly if there is a mismatch between the Location Timezone and System Timezone
  • DarkSky verbose conditions are only in cm/celsius or in/fahrenheit
Fedora 19 "Schrödinger's Cat"

A bug in this release prevents the applet from loading. See the link for the fix.

Just to clarify, I live in NY, but the maps end up putting me in Washington State using ZIP code... or in Kochkor, Kyrgyzstan if I use my latitude and longitude. No they aren't switched.

Neither have my town/city. Previous versions were fine. Got a copy of the old one?

Looks like in 2.1.7 there is not an option to use DarkSky with cinnamon 3.6. I wanted to try DarkSky because as @poliltimmy says, OpenWeatherMap says it's raining when there's bright blue sky and sun beaming through my window

Attila Greguss-1 week ago
DarkSky is currently supported on 3.8 and above, but I'm trying to make it compatible with previous versions. Currently I can get the weather info on 3.6 but it's buggy as hell, crashing left and right, losing app context, breaking if I change any of the settings etc. It might take some time to get it in a good shape (I don't have a lot of time) but I'm making progress.

Yikes, sounds brutal. I'd bet not many folks are on 3.6 anymore... I can wait until I get 3.8

Been stuck with incorrect current condition showing on the icon and applet for the last two weeks. Current details in the applet seem correct (today is a bright sunny day here, with applet showing cloudiness at 1%); yet app shows 'light rain' with 'rain' on the icon. It's almost always stuck on rain for the description. When I recently upgraded to 2.1.6 it seemed to have correct condition for an hour or so, now it is wrong again. Would like to try a different service, but 'OpenWeatherMap' seems fixed. No drop-down option in the configuration. On Cinnamon 3.6.7... Thanks for any tips. appreciate your applet!

Sorry for the above comment....seems to be an issue with 'OpenWeatherMap'. The current condition is often incorrect - but matches what OpenWeatherMap has on their site. Don't recall this being an issue in the past......

The app will not show my city. it shows for 40 miles away. Tried every input method. Will state my city in app using zip,but it says it is raining here, not a dark cloud can be seen in any direction. Using default open weather.

Playing around with it this morning. I had the wrong info also. I switched on Display time in 24 hour format and it instantly changed to the correct info. Maybe that will help fix the issue.
poliltimmy
poliltimmy-2 weeks ago
That only worked until the last refresh. Toggle the 24 hour back to off brought it back to the correct info.
poliltimmy
poliltimmy-2 weeks ago
Set up DarkSky and it seems to be working perfectly. If you set it to refresh at 45 min intervals you will not run out of the 1000 API calls as that is only 974 a month calls on the API.
Attila Greguss
Attila Greguss-2 weeks ago
You get 1000 calls a day with DarkSky

Hi, Running Cinnamon ver. 2.8.8 (on Linux Mint 17.3)... the app loads and works fine now. Thanks! Hopefully at some point you'll add in access to additional weather info sources; OpenWeatherMap has good current temperature reporting, but their forecasts are not great. Thanks again! Joe Henley

The problems with Cinnamon version 3.2 and below is due to the wrong folder structure of the applet. I submitted a pull request already, Update should be up tonight or tomorrow.

Hello. great work:) thanks for the development of the applet:) it works well on Debian Sid. but on the other hand, it doesn't work on Debian Stretch 9.7 and cinnamon 3.2.7:/ in looking glass, I have this feedback error t=2019-02-03T16:02:39Z [Applet "weather@mockturtl"]: File not found: /home/toshiba/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl/applet.js error t=2019-02-03T16:02:39Z Could not load applet weather@mockturtl I uninstalled the applet. re-install relaunch cinnamon but the problem persists...

Attila Greguss

Last update fixed below mentioned fixes, Also, the applet is multi versioned now, that means it has a version that's compatible below 3.8, what will automatically run if you have an older Cinnamon version than that.
JosephHenley
JosephHenley-1 month ago
Maybe I misunderstood.... I had gone back to version 2.0.1 until you were able to make the app run with earlier Cinnamon versions (ver 2.1.0 did not work for me). I tried this latest version (not quite sure what ver it is; but you said it would automatically work on lower Cinnamon versions), but it doesn't work. I re-installed ver 2.0.1 and all is again working. So, should it have worked, or did I screw up installing it? Thanks for all your effort with this app! Joe Henley

Thank you for the update! Loved the app. One big bug: System: Linux Mint 19.1 cinnamon Issue: When in "panel edit mode" and dragging the weather app (doesn't happen with other apps) to some other position, just to the right for example, the whole screen freezes. Workaround: ctrl + alt + backspace - this restarts Xorg. After login, the weather app is on its new position. Note: ctrl + alt + esc - doesn't unfreeze.

I have the same freeze problem as janos-r with Cinnamon version 3.8.9 in openSUSE. Attila Greguss, thanks for your work on this applet!

To anyone who's having the error: error t=2019-01-30T19:41:59Z missing } after property list error t=2019-01-30T19:41:59Z [Applet "weather@mockturtl"]: Error importing applet.js from weather@mockturtl error t=2019-01-30T19:41:59Z Could not load applet weather@mockturtl I broke the minimum requirements of the applet by implementing async funtions (without knowing, unfortunately), what are supported from Cinnamon version 3.6.x! If you need DarkSky, upgrade to a version above. Else, don't! At this moment I don't know how long will it take to get the support for older versions back while maintaining the same functionality. If you already updated, I'll make the previous version available here tonight
Grigorijs
Grigorijs-1 month ago
In the previous version (which you'll make) will be DarkSky? Because for me the current version works as should ))) Only one thing about DarkSky. Why does it show a forecast from a previous day?
Attila Greguss
Attila Greguss-1 month ago
I don't plan to lose functionality from what the applet has now. I will definitely try to get older versions supported, but if I can't, I'll have to split it, what i dont want to do. That would mean the applet will support 3.6.x+, and I will fix up the previus version with OpenWeatherMap properly, archive it and that can be accessed from the Readme here.

Nothing related to this applet...ok, last thing. Download The "Toggle LookingGlass" applet. open it, Select the "Log" tab. See if there are any errors (marked as red) are in there.

I also found that the weather applet is now in: /root/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/. It used to be, and all other current applets are, in: /root/cinnamon-spices-applets/. That may explain why it complains about not being able to import or load it.

Hello, I'm experiencing a (very) low accuracy on reported temperatures. Here in Modena (Italy) we have at most -2 / -3 degrees celsius in the night, while the applet displays -12.

Just got another update and I couldn't be happier. Thanks so much for getting the app back up and running. The switch around on the high and low makes tons more sense. It always boggles me for split second the way it was displayed before. Temp in the morning is mostly what I need.

I had been waiting for such an applet for years, and here it is. Great! And it works perfectly well. Thank you for your commitment and your work. :-) Let me propose something. Could you give us the choice to have the symbol hidden when there's nothing to be updated? Like the symbol of the Update Manager? That would be even greater.
JosephHenley
JosephHenley-1 month ago
I'm running ver 2.0.1. It will update the weather info only when I change the config. ie., the temp and forecast data shown in the panel are updated only when I change a setting in the config screen. Also, as others mentioned, the forecasts aren't very accurate. I don't know if that is the app's problem or the source info provider. I suspect the latter. Hopefully you'll be able to add an option for other providers. Thanks for the all. Joe Henley
Attila Greguss
Attila Greguss-1 month ago
Hello, If the weather info does not change that meas the applet has crashed at some point. Next time you think the weather does not update, could you send me the logfile in ~/.cinnamon/glass.log so I can look at the trace? My email address is on my github
Joe Cusumano
Joe Cusumano-1 month ago
Unfortunately, the app is back to giving poor information. It's been showing "light snow" all day, but it's been partly cloudy with no precipitation, and the five-day forecast is way off compared to other sources. I don't think the update interval (currently set at 15 min) is being followed. I'm not sure what I can tell you to help diagnose the issue. If there's any info I can provide, let me know. It might be entirely a problem with OpenWeatherMap vs. the old Yahoo weather.
Attila Greguss
Attila Greguss-1 month ago
the Free OpenWeatherMap API key gives forecasts for every 3 hours. I compile this information per/day then display that. The Weather Condition is chosen by the most severe (I thought people want to see the worst weather , e.g. there will be rain or snow) for a day. If OpenWeatherMap returned Light Snow for your location for a 3 hour forecast, it will display that (As mentioned below OpenWeatherMap is inaccurate sometimes). I could change it to the most common condition for the day, but then you miss out on showers and things like that. Now this is far from perfect, unfortunately. I'm talking to OpenWeather for an API key for the app, if that includes the proper daily forecasts, I'll swap to that.
fluntelion
fluntelion-1 month ago
There's something radically wrong with that applet of yours. I keyed in the API I got from OpenWeatherMap in their welcome e-mail, but your applet didn't react. In my account, I keyed in my place, a large city in Western Europe, and got the same API I already had. I waited 24 hours for the API to be activated, but nothing changed. I checked the API at openweathermap.org - and it turned out to be London! :-) I tried your recommendation and pasted the coordinates of my city, got two different API's, the check shows that they are activated - but none of them works. Restaring Cinnamon, rebooting - nothing helps. This applet of yours just doesn't work.

I'm very pleased and thankful to see reports that this applet is back and running. I am saddened that I must unfortunately cloud this happy event with my confusion on how to get this running once again. I made my account and got an API from OpenWeatherMap, but I don't understand where to put it in the applet. My version of the applet's configuration field looks just like before, and the only spot where it's open to receive input is where it wants a WOEID, nothing about API at all. Any tips? And thank you, mixaso, for all your work here =]

Hello, I submitted the port to OpenWeatherMap for the applet. @Bundy01 I am aware of the issue (stupid overlook from my part mixed with some last minute changes), it will be fixed in the next version along with swapping to https requests. if you can't wait for a fix, open ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl/applet.js , and delete Line 654 and 655.

The OpenWeather setup is working, but for me I'm missing a day. Basically today is Wednesday, but the next forecast day it shows is Friday. Thursday is missing. And to be even more strange, it appears that the forecast is actually correct, but the day is labeled wrong. Ex: it shows tomorrow as being Friday and it's going to rain and that Saturday will be broken clouds, while in reality tomorrow is Thursday and it's going to rain and Friday will be broken clouds. NFC here!

Hello, I submitted the port to OpenWeatherMap for the applet. That's pretty bad issue, could you tell me your timezone or the City/Country returned? (only if you feel comfortable with it, ofc). OpenWeatherMap provides Datetime without timezones and probably that's why it is incorrect, I will have a proper look at it after work.

Hi everybody. I'd suggest porting the xfce weather app to Cinnamon. I loved it. Based on data from met.no, it's very accurate and good-looking. It also gives an idea about WHEN, during the day, a particular event may occur. I would like very much seeing it in Cinnamon, now that this one is over.

The WOEID page is working again, but the applet still doesn't work anymore. Is there any hope that it will work again?

The weather forecast does not work anymore. WOEID died, you need to change to something other than WOEID

The weather forecast does not work, as the project WOEID died, you need to come up with something else.

As of January 2019, it appears that the woeid is dead. I can no longer get updates to my local forecast for this app.

Weather details do not load. Probably because of a change in Yahoo! weather API: https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-spices-applets/issues/2178. BTW: Great applet. :-)

Decided I can do without Oath(Yahoo). only to find Weather app uses yahoo(oath). Why is there no settings feature where you can select which search engine your comfortable with? The lengths these so&so;'s will go to get your data. There's a word for them and it isn't nice.

Very useful. Unfortunately, the current temperature in a vertical panel isn't shown.

I'm having the same problem as mfreeman72. It was working fine, but now the readout is for Seattle and I live in Utah. When I click on the city name it does open up the webpage for Provo, UT though, which is correct.

This applet was working fine up to this point, but suddenly it's giving me the forecast for New York instead of my city (Fresno, CA). The WOEID I have entered for Fresno is correct, and again, it was working fine before. I didn't make any changes. What could be happening?

weather* of course I do have one minor point; I am not sure what "translate condition" does nor what its use is, is seems to capitalize some weather condition names although I am not entirely sure.

Hello, it seems there's a bug here in France: atmospheric pressure is given as 33728 mbar, 996 in.hg, etc., today in Angoulême. My guess is the app thinks pressure information is given in in.HG, but in France (tested with Angoulême and Paris) it gets a hPa value and so displays a value that's 33 times what it should be. Thanks, have a nice day!

Would it be possible to add the "Beaufort" wind speed unit. I know we have knots, mph, m/s and kph, but Beaufort is the most used in the Netherlands. Actually, it's the only one we Dutch actually understand.
pepstu

The Beaufort scale is not a unit that indicates wind speed. It indicates wind force (kg per square meter averaged over 10 minutes). So adding Beaufort as a wind speed unit would be incorrect, but it would be nice to see Beaufort/wind force added.
Fonstw

This is a good point, Beaufort scale is often given on Dutch television news channels, although I personally prefer kph this is still a very good suggestion!

Same problem as Bora Ön. The foreecast starts from yesterday or the day before. So all the data becomes questionable. Any suggestions? Bora Ön - 1 month ago - Reply I don't know why, but for the last couple of days it started to show from the day before. I mean, if it is monday, it lists the weather starting from sunday. Any help?

Had the same problem for a week now (only realized it today though). See about updating the applet. I've used it for years and apparently the applet changed quite a bit over time. It also uses a different source for the WOID codes.

I have the same issue with it being stuck on the loading, but I don't think it's an issue with the applet. I dug around the code and pulled the URL it uses to get the data back from yahoo api's and tried to get the data back through a browser. I don't get any response back from the yahoo api, it eventually times out, so it looks like there may be an issue with yahoo apis that's causing the problem.

Stuck in "Loading" forever :( The only reason I can come up with is because I need to use a proxy to get to the internet. The proxy is configured as the usual Gnome proxy, but maybe the applet isn't respecting this...

The button that's supposed to take you to the web is broken: right now it tries to go to yahoo.com, but hangs. It would be nice to fixe that, but It would be even better if we could select our own URL to be activated by that button.
