Clock and weather display

With nothing better to do during lockdown I dug out an old 7" PI touchscreen and Pi 3b.

I was going to install the pirsfullclock (GitHub) to implement a studio clock but although of limited use to me - I do audio recording in a homemade studio - I thought I could add to it.

What transpired was a 'studio' style clock combined with a simple display of current weather conditions taken from my CumulusMX system using the /api/tags/process.json interface to the webtags - see wiki for more details.

The result is available here: https://github.com/philpugh1951/WeatherClock and is just a bit of fun! It will work on a normal HDMI attached screen - I have tried it on a 42" TV but it's a bit in-your-face at that size!

It's offered as a bit of fun and with absolutely NO support!!

Have fun

Interesting Phil. Though the readme is screaming out for a screenshot! ;)

As requested Mark!

Image of Raspberry Pi screen (full 800*400 - clock.png)
Screen image from Windows 10 (winclock.png).

Software now runs on raspberry pi with full screen display on 7" Touch screen or as an application running on windowed systems under Python 3.x

I have tried it on Windows 10 and also Ubuntu Studio 20.04.

I plan to add trend indicators (probably colour coded dots) in the near future
Cheers

Phil

Latest version now has single code source for multiple systems and much improved weather information.
