v0.1 - 16 June 2013 - nightflame The Desklet is a little raw at the moment because its my first attempt. I wrote it because I wanted to see local weather on my desktop. I'm sharing it in case it useful to anyone else especially as there do not seem to be many Cinnamon Desklets yet. Its based on xkcd@rjanja.

I am trying to use station KLEX and the Desklet will not collect data from it. It is my local airport, and the closest station to me. It is also a "real" weather station, not a personal station, and therefore has to be kept in calibration, etc. wo I would much rather use it.

How to find your weather station ID on

1. Go to
2. Search for your location, e.g. KLEX, Kentucky
3. Press the button »CHANGE ⮟«
4. A menu drops down with a map at the left and a list of »Current and Nearby Weather Stations« at the right.
5. The ID of the »Current Station« is shown in brackets, e.g. (KKYLEXIN16)
6. Add this ID without the brackets in the desklets settings, e.g. KKYLEXIN16
