SQL dayfile data Viewer

Post by kocher »

Here is another way to see our daily data taken from the table, created by cumulusMX, "dayfile".

Demo: http://kocher.es/cumulusMX/datatables/e ... le-sql.php

This is possible thanks to the plugin created by https://www.datatables.net/

The advantages of this presentation in table form are:
- Speed. The query to our dayfile table is very fast.
- The columns are rearranged at will by simply pressing on a column heading.
- The last row of the table, presents a summary of the rows (The minimum temperature value, sometimes fails).
- The variables stand out with a color gradient, taken as a function of their value.
- The search is done in the format yyyy-mm-dd (the format of the field LogDate):

2016-10 filters the month of October 2016
-08-15 filters every day August 15th of every year

Installation:
- Download file: http://kocher.es/cajon/DataTables-cumulus-dayfile.rar (2221 KB)
- Unzip this file
- Install your content on our website, in a folder named as we want.

-Edit the file:

./examples/server_side/scripts/server_processing.php

Line 22: $ table = 'dayfile'; // sometimes called Dayfile

Lines 80-84:

Code: Select all

'User' => 'Our username',
'Pass' => 'Our password',
'Db' ​​=> 'Database name'
'Host' => 'The address of our mysql hosting'
Now, we call from our browser, to file:

../examples/server_side/dayfile-sql.php

I hope you find it useful :)

Very nice, and I am learning Spanish (not) http://www.komokaweather.com/mysql/data ... le-sql.php and it goes back to 2008-10

Thank you for sharing.

Nice work! I'll have a look later this evening.

You're right about how fast it is.. I typed 2016-01, 2016-02, 2016-03 etc etc.. and it is almost instantaneous. Great job. :)

Also playing - like the speed and format.

Doing some conversion to English and Imperial units. Color codes will need adjusting. Not sure why but getting a NaN in the windrun sum.

Something missing from the package.. ;)
dataTables.scroller.js
Install that to: ../examples/resources

The table will now list the entire contents (pretty fast, I might add) which you can scroll through. It also automatically updates the text: Displaying 1 - 14 days from 328 days to show you exactly how many days are on view at a given time. :P

Thanks kocher, I really like this. And doing the full db as per Mapantz update is great, thanks for that. This is something I always wished for but don't have the ability to do by myself.

Just a couple of interesting facts on my 3,013 days of data:
Of these 3013 days of data there were 1,119 days that had a low of below 0.0°C (days of frost)
Of the 3,013 days there were 400 days that had a high that was below 0.0°C (days that had frost all day).

Now if I could figure out how to add or show more of the dayfile.txt data, i.e. sunshine, heating and cooling degree days...

Enjoying,
Paul

I would like to add more variables to our table, but the reality is that I can not.
In the file "server_processing.php" yes, you can incorporate all the fields of the table dayfile;
but when you add any of them to the "dayfile-sql.php" file, everything stops working :groan:

I don't really have enough brain power to do much to it. I could probably add solar radiation, as that would just about fit in to the table when using my custom widths. I suspect that you would need a horizontal scrollbar to fit in more contents such as humidity/degree days/dew point etc..

Maybe someone would be able to expand on it in the future, as it is a very useful script imo. :)

Here is my php file adapted to US/imperial units. The color scales are adapted to the range of weather I see here in NE Ohio.
I do not know much about php etc so it could do with some cleaning up but it seems to work. Not sure about the pressure - may need to redo the colors.

Digging up an old thread here. I was able to get the dayfile scripts configured and uploaded. 2 issues hopefully someone can help with.

Can the Date format be changed to MM/DD/YYYY?

My totals at the bottom are in US, but the labels inside are coming up with metric instead of US. The numbers are right, just the labels are wrong.

Thanks.

To change the date format. You must edit the file: "./server_side/scripts/server_processing.php"

Approximately, on line 39, you must change:

Code: Select all

		'formatter' => function( $d, $row ) {
			return date( 'Y/m/j', strtotime($d));
			
to

Code: Select all

		'formatter' => function( $d, $row ) {
			return date( 'm/j/Y', strtotime($d));

Thank you. And I saw my labels in the PHP file as well that I updated.

Where did you change the "highlight" code for the rows? I can't seem to find the right one.
