Please read the release notes carefully since this update requires adjustments to your Raspberry Pi configuration!
This module is another weather module and is a port of a home-brew mirror project I’d done prior to switching to MM2. I got used to the three day forecast and the details it provided so figured I’d port it across. I hope you like it.
You can get it here
@nigel-daniels very nice… nice enough to make me want to switch mine out!!
Have you thought about adding humidity next to the chance of rain perhaps?
Nice idea! I’m tied up for a few days but I’ll do my best to grab some time and look into getting humidity posted too.
Love this and the weather now but…
I have my config setup correctly it just says…
“Loading Weather Data…”
“Loading Forecast Data”
That’s as far as it ever goes…
@cowboysdude hi, sorry to here that:( I have a couple of questions to check out what may be going on:
- Did the request dependancy install ok?
- Can you post or pm me the config you are using?
I’ll try and recreate the issue and figure out what is going on… It may be best to do this as an issue on the github site.
@nigel-daniels another thing to try out as well is to test your API key is ok. Just put:
Into a browser replacing the  and their content with your own api key. It should return a bunch of text with the data on the current weather in San Francisco.
@nigel-daniels Yes I ran the npm install inside the directories and it went without issue.
Yes I’ll PM you my config

Well did find out was using the wrong ‘key’… fixed that and entered the url in the web browser and it gives me the results but won’t load on the mirror. Running in DEV mode shows no errors either…
Even just running nothing but the MMM-Weather-Now and MMM-3Day-Forecast all I get is
Loading… on both…
git cloned it
switched to that dir and ran 'npm install’
put the proper config in the mirror
ran it in DEV mode getting no errors and it’s loading
@cowboysdude thanks for all of the info, it points to a need for to set up the same environment you have and to recreate the issue you have. I have a spare Pi so I’ll set up the full environment on it. When I’ve got there (probably Wed) I’ll see if I can debug the set up.
The system I’m running is on a Pi Zero running as
node serveronlyso I suspect there could be an issue with these modules firing up under electron. I’ll check this out and let you know what I find out.
