With no previous experience I’ve set up a Raspberry Pi running CumulusMX (literally days before the copy SD card method was introduced!), thanks to the excellent wiki and forum entries and imported 10 years worth of data.
Congratulations on your success, with no previous experience. I have argued in several earlier posts that many people find using a Raspberry Pi computer for MX easier than using a Windows PC for it. I believe your achievement, with no previous experience, shows (once more) I was right to claim that.

I’d like to try using the UI from this forum. Before I start experimenting, please will it work this way, e.g. viewable in the same way as the CumulusMX dashboard from localhost? Due to my total ignorance of web servers etc I’m not sure if it’s worth trying to get started or not, whether it’s possible to use it this way and how much skills I need.

"localhost" can only be used for one server at a time. Cumulus MX generates a web server to run its Admin interface, and "localhost" can be used for that if there is no conflict.
As Paul says, Brian's UI style web site is designed to be on a different web server to MX's own admin interface.

If you have found wiki (and forum) entries about Raspberry Pi, you will understand that it is possible, to add another web server to your Raspberry Pi, that can run the UI style web pages, just as I do. I am not the only user to run a own web server on a Pi. Although my web server is only visible on my own devices connected to my LAN, any post by Mark gives the URL for the web pages hosted on his server.
Setting up a web server on a Raspberry Pi is covered in a lot of articles easily found online with various different web server software, and you may find one of those makes it simple for you. Alternatively, I do describe how to set up a web server using apache 2 at https://cumuluswiki.org/a/Setting_up_Ra ... _server.29

Hi Linda,

Yes, you can run the CumulusMX UI style multilingual website on you local network

BUT

You would need to install a webserver on your local network and configure CumulusMX to deliver the files to the local webserver instead of to a webserver on the internet.

Thank you for your comprehensive reply, this is the sort of thing that I was looking for. I’ve found sitting with an iPad and being able to look at my weather data on CumulusMX a brilliant experience. For what it is,the Pi is a wonderful piece of equipment, which has the advantage that as long as you have your data backed up, it’s relatively easy to start over if you really mess up!

Thank you also for the link to the article, the one thing I’ve found is that some times there’s almost too much information especially for a beginner, it’s a little overwhelming! I’ll start to slowly make this my next project and something to do during this lockdown.

Hello I run Brian's UIMX on a Raspberry pi3b, and also a local NGINX webserver on the same RPI.
That runs without any problems for a while now, just look in my signature for the url. ;)

I understand the too much information issue, which is why I explained in the quote I include above, there are MANY articles about setting up a web server on a Raspberry Pi. Do a search yourself to find the article that suits you. Here are 4 that you might try:
https://www.slicethepi.co.uk/install-apache2-with-php/ - just a short page to read, how to install apache
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... r/nginx.md - from the Raspberry Pi makers, how to install NGINX webserver
https://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2013/ ... pberry-pi/ - Lighttpd is a lightweight web server application that works well on the Pi.
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /apache.md - from the Raspberry Pi makers, how to install apache

There appears to be something strange going on with yesterday's dominant wind bearing under the Today/Yesterday menu tab.
My page shows 95° SW. Indicating the at least one of the fields is incorrect.

When I view page source I can see a bearing of 225 which looks correct for yesterday.
I have noticed that if I refresh the page 225 flashes up momentarily before showing the lower figure. This is more noticeable on BCJKiwi's and PaulMy's sites, which have the same "error" and where the response, for me, is slightly slower.

I am on Cumulus1

Hello,

I have the same phenomenon at home. A screenshot of the CumulusMX site and the Cumulus interface, with different data for yesterday.

OK,

Have tracked the cause to a typo in ajaxCUmx.js

FOR C1
Search ajaxCUmx.js for
domwindbearingY
( at line 956 in C1 )
var domwindbearingY = realtime[3]; // dominant direction degrees yesterday

REPLACE with ( or just edit the line )
var domwindbearingY = realtime[133]; // dominant direction degrees yesterday

FOR MX
If you have the .min version of ajaxCUmx.js ( MX sites ),
do the same for the ajaxCUmx.js file in src ( at line 934 )
rename ajaxCUmx.min.js to something else so you retain your customisation settings, and copy the modified ajaxCUmx.js to the main folder and rename to ajaxCUmx.min.js and update your customisation settings.

That's great thank you.
That's sorted it for my Cumulus1.

I have another question on the Today/Yesterday page.
Is it possible to remove the UoM from the Today's Hourly Rainfall field and Yesterday's Rainfall Rate Max and Hourly Rainfall fields?
It would make things look more consistent.
Thanks,

OK,
More typos in ajaxCUmx.js :bash:

C1
Remove + uomRain from
lines 990, 995 and 1005

MX
Remove + uomRain from
lines 962, 967 and 977

Thanks for letting me know :)

Thanks a lot.
I had looked at those lines but with my lack of expertise wasn't keen to tinker. ;)

CumulusMX and Cumulus1 UI style Multilingual Websites

Cumulus1 Version 2.1.6 now available in first post.

This 2.1.6 Cumulus1 update is a catch up on the various changes that have been happening in ver 2.1.4, 2.1.5 and 2.1.6 of the MX version.

A lot of the changes in MX have been to charts which do not apply to Cumulus1.
However there are a number of other 'improvements' that are included.

The current version 2.1.6 can be viewed at https://silveracorn.nz/cumulus1

Dennisdg noticed my site (and others) was showing -20 for the feelslike guage.

It seems the latest builds include an old version of realtimegaugesT.txt dated 4/03/2015

This is a file from build 3099 dated 31/10/2020 which includes feelslike.
