Just one thing about these suggestions, if I implemented any of them I would only provide a display, the code to provide the data to drive them would be your responsibility.

(having written a tidal prediction program in the past based on the Admiralty harmonics method [on a Psion 3a - remember them!] and lunar/solar programs recently, I know what a nightmare they can be. Its fine not bad for the UK, but time zones and DST are a pig to handle in Javascript)

Mark,
Is it possible/feasible to build a dual gauge?
What I have in mind is a gauge with an upper and a lower scale to show for example, outside and inside temperatures in the one gauge.
Cheers,
Graeme.

I was running version 1.6.6 for a while, and finally got around to upgrading to the latest steelseries libraries. I was using the battery from 1.6.6, but in the latest library, it breaks the code. I did a search through the steelseries.min.js file for "battery", but didn't find anything. Was the battery gauge removed or renamed? Any chance it is coming back?

battery1 = new steelseries.Battery('canvasBattery1', {
size: 80,
value: 20
});

The extra gauges are not in the library supplied with the weather gauges to save space, you need to download the full version of Steel Series from github.

If I can say my opinion

"Configurable" gauges

Now the gauges are all radial

I would like to select what type of gauge is used for every "weather data"

I would like to have "linear gauge" for the rain for example

Sorry if I said something fool.
