For all you dutch and german people out there, I have created a module that is inspired by the app Buienalarm. It is based on the modules MMM-rainfc and MMM-rain-forecast. Thanks to @cirdan and @spoturdeal for their groundwork.
I have created this since I wanted the rain forecast to be more prominent on the mirror.
This module implements chart.js for a nicer graph and
- uses Buienradar API, works in Netherlands and parts of Western Germany
- line or bar graph possible
- rain icons for light, medium, heavy rain as orientation help
- flexible sizes, color
Any ideas or corrections welcome and appreciated!
I tried the module today with the default confit and it only shows “no data” / “Keine Daten!”.
I use: lat: 52.15 and lon: 5.55.
Update: Sorry, I took a while, but now I see some data.
I changed lat and lon from default to my coordinates
lat: 52.55, lon: 13.45,
and get no data anymore.
Is that Berlin?
The current master branch uses Buienradar (NL) and does not work east of, let’s say Dortmund.
You could try to switch to the ‘climacell’ branch
git fetch --all git checkout climacell git pull
You’d need a climacell api key.
I have not completed the Readme yet in that branch. Will do over the next days.
Yes, that is Berlin.
I am happy to give cimacell a test if the readme file is online and I know what to do.
@MajorC Then you can just wait.
I guess I’ll push the climacell change to the master branch later since there are already some modules out there that use Buienradar.
