Do I Need a Jacket? 2.0 (beta 2016-04-10)

Description

"Do I Need a Jacket?"

Because there aren't enough Rainmeter weather skins

Update in progress of the old "Do I Need a Jacket?" skin.
(Last updated 10 April 2016)

Improvements thus far:
:bulletblue: Uses Lua instead of trying to cram logic into the skin file
:bulletblue: Many more adverbs (though it's probably less witty overall)
:bulletblue: Instead of trying to incorporate wind speed into the jacket equation, just checks the Wind Chill temperature value
:bulletblue: Simplified settings: location, English/Metric, jacket temperature threshold, coat temperature threshold
:bulletblue: Can change the size by scrolling the mouse over the skin
:bulletblue: Text alignment (left, right, centered) selectable from the skin context menu




The latest version uses Weather.com's wxdata feed - you will need a Weather.com location code.
The code can be found in the URL on the forecast page for your location on Weather.com, using jsmorley 's WXDataWeather skin, or via http://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/search/search?where=YOUR_LOCATION.

A fix for the old version, which used a Yahoo! weather feed, can be found here: forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.…

Hey man, as many have said, the code isn't working.


I went to the weather url, and that service has been deprecated.

"This service is deprecated as of 01/15/2020"


This is a really good idea, and I have coded something really similar in Python before, but it's not as compact as your plugin. Would love to see this fixed!


Thanks.
