I bought a Davis Vantage PRO2+ in 2008 and installed it with Cumulus with a website on Saratoga scripts. It was an easy system with Cumulus as an easy clean program to handle the info. But I had to break it down and hide the equipment in 2013 for 6 years. Unfortunate, but recently I could set it up again. I found Cumulus had developed into MX and Steve had retired. A lot of changes. So I looked around again to find the tools available.
In the end, it was Cumulus again. I bought a Raspberry 3B+, installed CumulusMX - thanks for the start/stop and the cumulusnow script - and started creating a website, again on the Saratoga scripts. I must say, it went smooth. Within two hours or so I had the Raspberry running with CumulusMX and transferring the realtime.txt to the ftp-site. Thanks to the info here on the forum and the wiki, thanks Steve and to you all who maintained Cumulus the level it is now.
So, having said that, I do have some issues though:
- I want to have graphs on the website. I can't find the route getting the graphs on the server.
- The status-page of my Saratoga script-site appears not to give full info. I do not see how I can connect my CumulusMX info to the Saratoga thing.
- The choice for the Saratoga scripts does not convince me up till now, maybe there are better templates around. I will take some advice if any.
