Questions? Ask Them! Suggestions? Suggest Them!

the weather data the skin displays is not 100% the same than on weather.com. This is due to parsing deferments of the required XML file, you can see the update time by hovering over the upper bar
the time will only be correct if your current time zone and the time zone of the weather location are the same

Any update on how to change the location?

Hello! When I search for my country, it doesn't show up. And when I search for any place, nothing shows up. I would like to ask for your help. Thank you!

Nice skin, thanks!

This seems like a good thing I would love to have on my desktop but it seems that when I try to search my location nothing shows up at all, Tried to enter my Location Code

(Israel, Tel-Aviv) but still, nothing shows up.

Unfortunately, weather.com killed its XML-feed so weather and location search is not working anymore. There is a workaround - which I implemented in my other weather skins. But not in this one yet! Thanks for notifying me!

Looks like the wxdata provider service for the data is no longer in service as of 1/15/2020. Any alternatives?

I updated two of my other skins already to (at least) basic functionality. I will update this one as well but I'm in the middle of my exams right now :)

That's great news, Thank you! Good luck on your Exams

You can achieve that by using the Rainmeter subsitute option, more information here docs.rainmeter.net/manual/meas…

The humidity and how fast the wind is going is not showing for me.
fuckyeahlucas's avatar
The only reason for that is that weather.com has no humidity and wind data for your location in their XML feed. If you change the location to a big capital city, will it show up?
How do you change the size of the widget?
fuckyeahlucas's avatar
I didn't include changing the size of this skin yet.

If you want to change the overall size add a variable called "SIZE" in the variables section. Then multiply every size/location of every meter.

For example:

[Variables]
SIZE=1.5

[MeterUpdateTime0]
FontSize= (#SIZE#*12)
X= (#SIZE#*200)
Y= (#SIZE#*45)

Hi, sorry to be a bother, but since I've set my location the circle in the middle with the icon in it doesn't appear? On hover, the weather channel button doesn't appear, but nothing other than that. Is there a way to fix this? Sorry if I'm being silly! I've tried refreshing it to no avail.

Did you solve this issue by now? If not: try a location nearby. More information about this issue right here comments.deviantart.com/1/6339… :)

how can i translate the weather and the days to portuguese?
D-Jay's avatar
You can add a locale parameter at the end of the weather line in Sunny.ini like "&locale=de_DE" (Germany) for example.

fuckyeahlucas You may add this as a config option?

It's a long way to convert a whole skin into a different language. Everything can be done with Substitute, more information about it right here: docs.rainmeter.net/manual/meas…

Little example to translate the date on the top into portugues :)

Add this under [MeasureDate]:
Substitute="January":"Janeiro","February":"Fevereiro","March":"Março","April":"Abril","May":"Maio","June":"Junho","July":"Julho","August":"Agosto","September":"Setembro","October":"Outubro","November":"Novembro","December":"Dezembro"

For the days of the week at the bottom you have to do the same to the corresponding [Measure]. For the weather translations you can use Substitute, too, but I don't have a complete list of all possible weather outputs.

You can have a look at the skincode of my skin called Sunday (fav.me/dahfnvd). This skin is fully translated into some languages. For portugues you just have to replace the old expressions within the Subtitute lines. :)
