MMM-WeatherBackground question



  • if I am using currentweather (openweathermap) as the source, what keywords should I use on Collections?


  • Module Developer

    @lkthomas
    You can use these as keywords.

    sunny, clouds, cloudy, windy, heavy rain, rain, thunderstorm, snow, fog, clear night, cloudy night, night rain, night thunderstorm, night snow, windy night
    

  • Module Developer

    @lkthomas
    And you can adjust keywords also by configuration

    sources: {
      "currentweather": {
        notification: "CURRENTWEATHER_DATA",
        payloadConverter: (payload)=> {
          var iconMap = {
            "01d": "sunny",
            "02d": "clouds",
            "03d": "cloudy",
            "04d": "windy",
            "09d": "heavy rain",
            "10d": "rain",
            "11d": "thunderstorm",
            "13d": "snow",
            "50d": "fog",
            "01n": "clear night",
            "02n": "cloudy night",
            "03n": "cloudy night",
            "04n": "cloudy night",
            "09n": "night rain",
            "10n": "night rain",
            "11n": "night thunderstorm",
            "13n": "night snow",
            "50n": "windy night"
          }
          return iconMap[payload.data.weather[0].icon]
        },
      ...

    Hi Sean, your module is really very nice, thank You.
    I was working with collections and I couldn’t make module loads my ones, despite your instructions in the 2 previous posts.
    So, I took a look to console log and see that You url always appends in the url the weather conditions. When condititions carry on “-” between words, your url also carry on that sign.
    I meant, when I wrote in config.js

    collections: {
    				  "clear-day": "4613658"
    				  "sunny": "4613658",
    				  "clouds": "4557538",
    				  "cloudy": "4557538",
    				  "cloudy night": "4613565",
    				  "partly cloudy day": "4618566",
    				  "partly cloudy night": "4618856",
    				  "windy": "4613696",
    				  "wind": "4613696",
    				  "heavy rain": "4613730",
    				  "rain": "4613732",
    				  "night rain": "4613625",
    				  "clear night": "4613623",
    				  "fog": "4618886",
    				  "thunderstorm": "4613853",
    				  "tornado": "4619143",
    				  /*"hail": "",
    				  "i-rain": "",
    				  "i-wind": "",
    				  "sleet": "",
    				  "snow": "",*/
    

    featured photos was loaded anyway.
    But when I did set collections in this way:

    				  "clear-day": "4613658",  
    				  "sunny": "4613658",
    				  "clouds": "4557538",
    				  "cloudy": "4557538",
    				  "cloudy-night": "4613565",
    				  "partly-cloudy-day": "4618566",
    				  "partly-cloudy-night": "4618856",
    				  "windy": "4613696",
    				  "wind": "4613696",
    				  "heavy-rain": "4613730",
    				  "rain": "4613732",
    				  "night-rain": "4613625",
    				  "clear-night": "4613623",
    				  "fog": "4618886",
    				  "thunderstorm": "4613853",
    				  "tornado": "4619143",
    				  /*"hail": "",
    				  "i-rain": "",
    				  "i-wind": "",
    				  "sleet": "",
    				  "snow": "",*/
    

    photos I collected was loaded fine.
    clear-day was worked but today was a partly-cloudy-day
    Last commented conditions I don’t know what it means but snow, but in my place never goes snow.
    Collections was “collected” from unsplash people following unsplash rules, so, I think any people can use it for MagicMirror. Feel free to use it for this wonderful module. Thank you.

    Sometimes, unsplash could return mismatched images with keyword.
    

    By using mentioned collections this won’t happen.

  • Module Developer

    @mohace
    Which weather module are you using? Keywords depends on which weather module be used.


  • Module Developer

    If you are using “currentweather”,
    https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/blob/b508a629e8a727358f1b88e3c7df842d14669ec4/modules/default/currentweather/currentweather.js#L49-L66
    these value could be used as collection mapping.

    If you are using “DarkskyForecast”,
    https://github.com/jclarke0000/MMM-DarkSkyForecast/tree/master/icons/1c
    These icon names could be used.
