Homemade weather station question

Post by nansmico »

I have built my own weather station using an Arduino and a Raspberry pi. The Arduino is outdoors with the weather sensors and communicates via wireless to the pi. I have configured the Raspberry pi with Cumulus MX and displays the web pages nicely and looks like it's working properly as far as I can tell. I don't have any data going to it because I'm not sure how to do this since there is no option to select for a homemade weather station. Can someone explain to me what file needs to be updated in order for the web pages to show the data? At the moment the Arduino has been programmed to output realtime.txt format to the pi. Can this file be used?

Probably the simplest way would be to use the EasyWeather station. This just reads a file for input, see - https://cumuluswiki.org/a/EasyWeather_Format
