View Full Version : Current weather, icon, low, high - updated display?

This may already be out there somewhere, but I can't seem to find it
through a search. I'm considering upgrading my SB to the new
display, but to do that I'd want something that can show me the
current weather where I am, the low and the high, including (perhaps)
an icon of that. While we're at it, maybe a clock too.

Here's a basic version of something kinda similar in the
cross-platform Konfabulator system by Arlo Rose:

Maybe I'd just like more justification on the following page to do
the upgrade: http://www.slimdevices.com/pi_display_upgrade.html

Thanks! I assume that this has been brought up before, so I
apologize with flooding your email with something old, but if not,
great!

Hi Jon,

I'm using the RSS reader to get my weather from:

http://www.rssweather.com/

As was recommended by somebody on this list.

I do think that having weather icons is a great feature, but I don't
know of any plugins that do this. I'd love for somebody to make one,
though...
