Hello !

Good news for Android users: last week I started to develop an app for Android devices.
First of all, I'm not a java or Android developer, only a geek, but I do my best! :)

I hope next week I can represent you some beta application.

Joe

Just for info: feel free to steal/pinch/borrow from the javascript code in my Nokia widget:
https://cumulus.hosiene.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=3724
There's one for realtime.txt: cumulusm, and one for wunderground data: cumulusw
If you download and unzip either one of them you will find a cumulus.js file with the javascript code.

Still in alpha phase. But I hope next week I can give to everyone a beta version.

This app is based on "Sunbird" linux screenlet.

Of course I will change all of the images, before publishing.

And let’s not forget an app for Microsoft’s WP7 phones. So currently I have a tile on my windows phone to my weather page http://www.claxton.me/weather/ although this needs to be updated each time the link is opened :( . Is there any way – simple way – that the site could be set to automatically update and if so how?
Secondly although the page displays fine on a PC/laptop one annoying feature – which I think I’ve caused in making changes :oops: – is that when the page is opened on a smartphone the items in the menu, at the foot of the page, don’t all display. I am left with :realtime::now::gauges::today::yesterday::rec which I would like to change back in order that the full menu options can be displayed on a smartphone (even though Flash player nor Silverlight run on WP7 - yet).
Final point if I may. The Latitude, Longitude & Elevation are displayed within a gray box. I would like to change this to tie in with the text as displayed in top half of the page.
Thanks
Andy

Hello!

The beta version can be downloaded from Android Market. Just search for "Cumulus Realtime"

To use this application you need additional file what you can download from here:
http://csomad.innersea.hu/android/realtime.zip

The content of the package is "realtime.xml" file, and this file should be placed in Cumulus's upload directory, and Cumulus should be set to upload this periodically. This file should be up-loaded by Cumulus by checking the "Enable Realtime" check box.
In application you can set the correct URL of the uploaded file.

Here is the screenshot with your xml file:

For me works fine, but as I see you have special characters in forecast text, and the character code is iso-8859-15 and not utf-8.
That's why you can't open in browser the xml.

In application works fine. with some little character code problems... :)
I think you don't have working internet connection or your url is not correct entered, and that's why the app did not downloading the file..

Great app, working fine for me though with just one little fault which I can put up with, is that the rain today is showing the rainfall in the last hour and the rain last hour is showing the total rainfall for today.

Keen to get this going, but need help.
I've placed realtime.xlm in the Cumulus Web directory, and entered the file name as an external realtime program under Internet Settings. The Enable Realtime boxes are already ticked for my website operation.
I assume realtime.xml should now be uploaded periodically to my website, but no. What have I missed or done wrong?
Cheers

Hello!

Here you can find detailed how-to:
http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Sidebar_gadget

From the article, with little modifications:
Copy the realtime.xml file into your Cumulus folder on your PC
Within Cumulus click Configuration, Internet, then the 'Files' tab
Add a new entry in one of the blank lines.

Local filename is the full path and filename of realtime.xmll
Remote filename can be anything however it should be the path to your HTML files and a filename, ending in XML.

You must tick 'Process', 'FTP' and 'Realtime' to allow Cumulus to add values to the file and upload it.
