Steps in Raspberry Pi Weather Station
When download is complete. Untar the file
sudo tar -xzvf pywapi-0.3.8.tar.gz
sudo python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install
sudo unzip FAQ7BWLI1NULEIL.zip
sudo nano weather.py
# Larger Display
self.xmax = 800 - 35
self.ymax = 600 - 5
self.scaleIcon = True # Weather icons need scaling.
self.iconScale = 1.5 # Icon scale amount.
self.subwinTh = 0.05 # Sub window text height
self.tmdateTh = 0.100 # Time & Date Text Height
self.tmdateSmTh = 0.06
self.tmdateYPos = 10 # Time & Date Y Position
self.tmdateYPosSm = 18 # Time & Date Y Position Small
# Small Display
self.xmax = 480 - 20
self.ymax = 320 - 5
self.scaleIcon = False # No icon scaling needed.
self.iconScale = 1.0
self.subwinTh = 0.065 # Sub window text height
self.tmdateTh = 0.120 # Time & Date Text Height
self.tmdateSmTh = 0.075
self.tmdateYPos = 1 # Time & Date Y Position
self.tmdateYPosSm = 8 # Time & Date Y Position Small
And change with
self.w = pywapi.get_weather_from_weather_com(‘ASNS0055’, units='metric' )
This will change to the desired location by replacing the value ‘48085’ to ‘ASNS0055’and the units to be use from ‘imperial’ to ‘metric’. You can find your location by visiting weather.com.
Ctrl + x
Press Y, and enter.
sudo nano .config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
Go to the bottom of the last line and add the line below. Save and exit.
Then we need to open the terminal after the raspberry pi boots up. To do this type the code below.
If all are correct, set to run after boot up. Edit the file .bashrc, this will be executed when you open the terminal. Go to the bottom of the file and add the lines below. Save and exit.
Test the file by typing,
Save the file,
Look for the line
w = pywapi.get_weather_from_weather_com( '48085', units='imperial' )
Look for the line # Larger Display and put “”” before the line to uncomment and look for the line tmdateYPosSm = 8 # Time & Date Y Position Small and delete the “”” below. This will use the small display. It should look like the code below.
Open the file weather.py
Go to the folder
Unzip the file
Download he Raspberry Pi Internet Weather Station by
Go back to the folder /home/pi
Go to the folder
When installation is successful, connect thru SSH and download python weather api.
Connect to SSH, download and install the 4DPi-Kernel. Follow the instruction on the 4DPi-35 II Datasheet.
Set up network connections (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/README.md), Enable SSH (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/ssh/README.md), change password and restart.
Install the latest raspbian OS that is available on the Raspberry Pi website . Follow the installation guide.
