"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:
Uses Lua instead of trying to cram logic into the skin file
Many more adverbs (though it's probably less witty overall)
Instead of trying to incorporate wind speed into the jacket equation, just checks the Wind Chill temperature value
Simplified settings: location, English/Metric, jacket temperature threshold, coat temperature threshold
Can change the size by scrolling the mouse over the skin
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
A fix for the old version, which used a Yahoo! weather feed, can be found here: forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.…

**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.
