Weather badge (easy)

Posted in Weather by always_a_newbie 881 days ago

I think that this is a really good idea for weather and would like to share it with everyone:

Go to: http://www.wunderground.com/stickers/classic.html?query=San%20Francisco,%20California

It will be a site for putting weather on a website, but we won't do that today. Put your location into the location box, and click return. If you just click the suggestion, It will take you to the normal weather page. Now, choose one of the weather pictures. Don't forget about the 2 more pages of badges at the top. Left click (however you prefer to do that), on the one you like, and click "Copy image URL" Now, open up geektool, and create an Image geeklet, and paste the URL into it. It should show up now. Have fun picking which one you like!

So you have to do this every time, no automatic updates or refresh?

No, you don't. It'll refresh as long as you have it refreshing in geektool.

Very cool, always_a_newbie, though I think you meant to write "right-click" on the weather sticker to copy the URL (unless you are left-handed, maybe.) And as you replied above, set the refresh time in GeekTool.

I chose from the "New Stickers" tab, because those allow you to select a local PWS - a neighbor has a weather station on the Wunderground net. Seems to work great! Thanks.

Why on the black screen?

Because I don't know how to use photoshop.
