On the WeatherForecast geeklet change:

1.- w=12772181&u=f

12772181 your location and F for Fahrenheit or C for Celsius

Go to https://uk.weather.yahoo.com/ select your city and copy from the URL the last part where the numbers are, for example:

MY URL: https://uk.weather.yahoo.com/united-states/florida/miami-12772181/

MY CODE IS: 12772181

2.- https://uk.weather.yahoo.com/united-states/florida/miami-12772181/

Go to https://uk.weather.yahoo.com/ select your city and copy back the entire URL to the geeklet

3.- /Users/Lester/Documents/Apps/Weather/Icon/currentweather.png

Where you want to save the weather image

4.- On the Weather Image geeklet

Modify the new path you changed before where the image is



Hope it works for everybody!!!

The script take it from the Yahoo! Weather site and save it on the desire folder, ex:


And them create a new geeklet pointing to that image:


Note: That's where I desire to save the weather image, modify the script and the path on the image with your own one

@ecma, here's the complete list of edits needed:

in the forecast glet:

- line 12: replace the w= code with your location's, following the uk.weather.yahoo.com directions above

- line 26: replace the url (at the beginning of line 26) with your uk.weather.yahoo.com url

- line 26: replace local path (at the end of line 26) with the path you want to use for the weather icon

- lines 44 and 46: change the path to match what you used in line 26

in the image glet,

- line 14: change the path to match what you used in line 26 in the forecast glet

I wonder if someone more comfortable with this stuff than me can make it automatically determine the location, so that it could be a "weather where you are now" geeklet… some ways it's been done before are using infosniper (e.g. http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/geeklets/weather/weather-underground-simple-forecast-automatically-gets-location/), or LocationHelper (e.g. http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/geeklets/weather/dynamic-location-based-weather-forecasts/), or jq (e.g. http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/geeklets/weather/openweathermap-with-auto-geolocation-of-your-ip/)

edit: oops, forgot to link the urls, and apparently you can't add links when editing an already submitted comment...
