Weather icon (Accuweather)

Posted in Weather by Dave61 3169 days ago

This is an alternative version of my "Weather Get" glet which uses Accuweather instead of Meteogroup as the source. Also, I have used one of their alternative icon sets (found here http://www.accuweather.com/accunet/graphics-icons.asp).

The glets are designed to be saved in /Users/Dave/Geektool/ and the symbols should be saved in /Users/Dave/Geektool/Symbols/.

Necessary edits:

  • unless your name is Dave will want to edit both the files to change /Users/Dave/Geektool/ to /Users/yourname/Geektool,
  • unless your live in Voorschoten, The Netherlands, you will want to change "Weather Get" for your location,
  • you must remove leading zero from symbol files (so 01.png becomes 1.png and so on).

This glet fetches and displays the current Accuweather icon **only**. The screenshot above shows it in use with my Calendar and Weather collection which is here: .

Here's a script for parsing realistic images of weather accuweather.com.

URL must be substituted for his city.

Icon is stored in / tmp/weather123.png

curl --silent "http://www.accuweather.com/ru/kz/astana/222343/current-weather/222343" | grep -E -o "http\:\/\/vortex.accuweather.com\/adc2010\/images\/icons\-numbered\/([0-9])\w-([a-z])\w.png" | xargs curl --silent -o /tmp/weather123.png
