    Future data formats

    Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

    How should a future version of Cumulus store its data?

    In a local SQL database
    16
    11%
    In 'flat' text files like the current version
    40
    27%
    In both simultaneously

    Hello ,
    Main personnal computer SQL databases (MySQL or MariaDB, both use the same level of SQL language) are easy to handle. To install locally, the easiest way is to use Wamp softaware (free) which will install MySQL server, Apache server and PHP langage support.
    With mysql support, you wouldn't have to bother with the size of files, you can record a bunch of gigabytes of data.

    An other positive point is that the response time to requests data will not compare whith the processing of flat files .

    You can also easily use highcharts or highstocks libraries wich produce professionnal looking graphs.

    I personnally have cumulus 1.9.4 which produces csv files processed by personnal programs loading my tables.

    Here is an example : http://www.monsite-meteo.eu/Page/accueil.php clic on "Statistiques" then "Rapport NOAA"
