It’s still fairly lame in that it has no gui yet, but I’ve deemed my summer project for learning some AJAX to be ready for its first release!
My weather station sends its data to the internet. Currently the data goes to
- CWOP (and from there it goes on to NOAA)
- The WeatherUnderground
I wanted a way to do things with the data myself though. So I set about making a plugin for WordPress that will pull a weather station’s raw data from CWOP and dynamically update the current weather in a WordPress sidebar widget.
The project lives here, is open source, and hopefully will continue to get some periodic tweeking over the coming weeks to the point where it has the ability to do minimal GUI display of the change in temperature, wind, &tc.
If you’re reading this on my blog (as opposed to in a feed reader or some other aggregator like Facebook Notes), you should see the current weather in the blog sidebar…straight from my roof.
It’s fun being a nerd!
