CumulusMX and Cumulus1 UI style Websites

Post by BCJKiwi » Tue 03 Mar 2020 12:36 am

CUMULUS UI Style websites - ADVANCE NOTICE.
Hi, some of you may have noticed there have been significant enhancements to
https://silveracorn.nz/cumulusmx/
and
https://silveracorn.nz/cumulus1/ ( previously cumulus )
websites.

After being very reluctant to face the rigours of support based on past experience, I have relented and decided to make these sites available on the basis that the templates are:-
PROVIDED AS IS AND NOT SUPPORTED.
WHILE SOME COMMENT MAY BE PROVIDED FROM TIME TO TIME VIA THE CUMULUS FORUM, NO SUPPORT IS OFFERED NOR SHOULD BE EXPECTED.

The templates are based on various components of the CumulusMX distribution so inherit the look and feel of the UI website.

These MX and C1 sites are almost identical, the differences being that Cumulus1 uses the existing Trends graphs in place of the MX Charts, and some pages will not be available on Cumulus1 unless End of Day updates are independently managed with something like Cumulus Toolbox.

This project started simple but I was encouraged to add Current Conditions and Language support.
While I had achieved these in a basic form they have been significantly enhanced by the great work of beteljuice.

You may note that French is the only alternative to English on the existing sites.
However, I am now making a call for translators !!

A number of languages are already supported by some pages and there is need for translators for:-
Czech Český
German Deutsche
Spanish Español
Finnish Suomalainen
French Français (The French translation is by online dictionary so will require 'improvement')
Italian Italiano
Dutch Nederlands
Norwegian Norsk
Polish Polski
Portuguese Português
as these are already supported by Current Conditions, Betel Dayfile reader, and (SS Guages with the exception of Polish).
So translation is required to complete the language set for the remaining pages.
If you are able and willing to assist, please PM me via the forum and I will send you instructions and a template file to work with.
Some pages are not able to be fully translated as their content arrives complete from Cumulus.

At this time documentation is being revised/updated to include the latest enhancements.
Once this is complete there will be a call for beta testers to confirm the documentation and function is good on the different platforms being used.

The distributions will be in 2 parts, the core website with pages corresponding to those in the MX UI ( Dashboard, Now, Gauges, Charts/Trends, Today/Yesterday, and Records).
Extremes, NOAA reports, Annual Data and Davis Live Console(s) are included as "options" and are switched off, but any or all may be installed to suit your preference.
There are switches included to provide choice in many features including (but not limited to) which pages are shown (including one or other or both or no Davis live Console), which languages (if any) are offered and which language is the default for the site. There is also a cookie so the site "remembers" a visitor's chosen language.

Note that;
UV always shows 0 as there is no UV sensor on the station.
There are historical gaps in the Cumulus1 data as this runs on a PC that is not always on.

Looks very nice, thanks.
But where to download? I only see links to operational sites.
Or should I take pages and libraries one by one from your site?

If you read the first post you will see this is an ADVANCE NOTICE.
There is still work to be done before it is made available.

Aha... Yes. I thought maybe an advance notice implies a beta release ;)

I have just upgraded to MX from being on Cumulus 1 for many years, and I was wondering if there were web pages to match the new internal pages, and I happened to come across your site yesterday and thought it was great, and did wonder if the scrips were available. So pleased that you are going to be releasing the code. On my old Cumulus 1 site, I did have extra pages that showed all the day file entries, a top 10, and the Annual Data table, but there were all different styles, and I never really integrated then into the site properly. Speaking of the Annual Data, (you may be aware) but the Seasonal table / info doesn't seem to be displaying when you select it.

Does your site rely on just the web tags / realtime files generated by Cumulus, or do you need a MySQL backend as well.

Ian.

Hi, Thanks for your interest.
There is no SQL involved.

It uses a combination of a few of the standard, and a number of other "template" files in the cumulusmx/web folder.
The uploads are much smaller than those in the Cumulus1 system. However with the extra pages, there are some larger files but these larger files are mainly End of Day files.
