Revamped Weather Website using MX Cumulus and MODX CMS

Post by GavinBaylis »

I've been running a website on the South Coast at Worthing for well over 25 years, I was uploading weather data and a webcam image back in the days of 14.4 modems!

The site is mainly used by wind and kitesurfers, and over the years has had various iterations.

I came back from the French Alps 8 days ago and was in self-isolation / quarantine, so what better time to finally get my head around Cumulus.

I have to admit to probably downloading Cumulus a couple of years ago, but was concerned about switching from USB to Serial using the Davis Utility and losing all connectivity.

So I finally bit the bullet, and ended up doing a complete redesign of my site.

The back-end CMS is an old version of MODX, I used a template I know well as I design sites, but bringing in the MX Cumulus content was challenging to say the least!

But I'm very pleased with the end result and so are my end-users!

Though think there are a few issues with conflicting JavaScripts possibly Google Ads !!??

Looking good except for the Yesterday page which does not load any data for me.

You may be interested in uploading to Windguru - map - which was enabled in the last release. It is fairly unique in giving a "gustiness" indicator, with min, max, avg , and gusty values for each wind reading (open the stations from the map).

Looks good (also yesterday page)
But I also read google ads. Although I don't see any ads - you apparently intend to use google ads.
That leads me to the remark that you have to check you compoiance with the highcharts license. Maybe you bought a license but in the context of cumulus all site are on the non-commercial license And I see you use the standard CMX charts. Don't know if it's a big deal. Just saying.
