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

"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.…

says "Failed - no file" on download attempt =[

can yall help me please? I manage to change the location of the skin but it is still loading. What do I do???

will keep loading because the source data (http://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weather/local ) is broken and says: " This service is deprecated as of 01/15/2020 "

How can I start up the Weather?

Broken AF for me too :( Always loading.

Yeah it does not work anymore.

RIP

weather.com killed off wxdata, which pretty much all rainmeter weather widgets ran on :( RIP

Check Sienna, it works and is a very nice skin. Not to detract of the OP's submission here because it is a great concept.

I'm sure it's great, but it keeps on loading... forever for me : (

Sad that there will be no updates.

weather.com killed off wxdata, which pretty much all rainmeter weather widgets ran on :( RIP

I checked for mistake http://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weather/local/ it says the service is deprecated. :(

Thank you for a nice skin. But i have some problems. I can't get it to work with the

location=SWXX0084

If i hover the mousepointer over ... loading... i get the correct location but i don't get

anything else.


Somewhere out that that can help me with this?

Seems to be broken now - only getting "loading..."

Well, I self-parse wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weat…

and I get a lovely message:

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

Any ideas, 
FlyingHyrax?

He stop updating the skins (he said it on his Deviant page). You can use this one:

DINAJ (Do I Need A Jacket) 4

I love this skin!

I've modified it to use it in spanish too if someone is interested.

**COAT vs JACKET NOT WORKING FOR CELSIUS/METRIC SOLVED**


I noticed that user variables are broken for both Fahrenheit and Celsius. This is why the skin will tell us Celsius users to wear coats in 35C heat.


HOW TO SOLVE IT:

* Go to the file 'dinaj.lua'.

* On line 70: Change the variable props.JacketThreshold into the string: "JacketThreshold" (for you non programmers: remember to keep the quotes).

* Do the same on line 71: props.CoatThreshold should be "CoatThreshold"

* Save file and refresh the skin!


The values you put into dinaj.ini should now load properly.
