Hi,
nice widget.
One issue that confuses me is the moon (night) icon which appears early afternoon. Is this time parsing problem?

Hi! No. the problem is that I was too lazy to do it right :-) I plan to fix it by reading and using sunrise/sunset time from the server. Thanks for reporting!

Hello
thank you for this nice widget. (Un)fortunately, I am french and accented characters in the url address do not seem to be properly read (the forecast website appears to be offline), such as in:
http://www.yr.no/sted/Frankrike/Midi-Pyr%C3%A9n%C3%A9es/Toulouse/
(originally : http://www.yr.no/sted/Frankrike/Midi-Pyrénées/Toulouse/)
Thank you for your help

Hi! Please use the english version of yr.no to search for places. Try this URL: http://www.yr.no/place/France/Midi-Pyr%C3%A9n%C3%A9es/Toulouse/

But oddly enough your URL is working for me, too. I've already tested this applet with places with accented letters so this should be no problem...

And one more question. Does other places without accented characters work?

I am using Opensuse Tumbleweed, with the newly updated plasma 5.3.2-1.1 and KDE frameworks 5.11 (and apparently no possibility to upgrade to a 5.12 version)

I don't know how to add a snapshot of my screen with this web interface. But the message is, after a few seconds with "loading image", OFFLINE MODE. I get the temperatures of the only defined city (i.e. New York), both in the panel and in the widget window. A click on the Reload button does not update the images nor the temperatures. At the "Reload" place, appears the following message "23949818m ago"

Last, I tried a city nearby Toulouse (why not?) > http://www.yr.no/sted/Frankrike/Languedoc-Roussillon/Carcassonne/
It works fine

Hope it helps

I'm really sorry but I'm out of ideas right now. Cannot replicate this bug on my side therefore cannot repair this issue right now.

I confirm that it is not working for me, even with the english version of yr.no (http://www.yr.no/place/France/Midi-Pyr%C3%A9n%C3%A9es/Toulouse/). I downloaded the widget with the plasma add-on installer. Is it the last version?

Yes, it is. I've just removed my custom widgets and installed this one by plasma addon installer. Your URL works fine.

What version of plasma are you using? I have Plasma 5.3.2, KDE Frameworks 5.12.

Can you please post a screen of your weather widget settings dialog and also what exactly does not work? Do you see temperatures in expanded plasmoid? Do you see "Offline mode" instead of meteogram picture?

Thank you for adding some others weather providers !

It could be great if you update the description to explain how to install the plasmoid, because it's not clear. For exemple you can say that qml-module-qtquick-xmllistmodel and libqt5qml-graphicaleffects are required. You could also say that, now we have weatherWidget.plasmoid, weatherWidget can be installed from "Add widgets..." -> Get new widgets -> Download new plasma widgets.

Thanks, you're right, description updated:) And you are thanking me too soon for the providers - I didn't have enough time to do that. But I'll get to that eventually.

Hi, sorry I did not answer right away. Mail notifications from kde-apps just stopped working so I'm now catching up:)

@petelewis: I'm glad you sorted it out. I'll try to address this issue.

@paviluf: Oh, I can see the error now, thanks! Your instructions are correct for my arch system, too. Sorry...
And to your "accuweather" post: I've already received a request to add openweathermap support. I'll try to work something out. But the widget is quite tightly connected to XML model of yr.no feed and there is also the meteogram picture. But yes, since you are not alone to request this, I'll probably think something out :)

Do you think it's possible to add some other providers like http://www.accuweather.com/ because yr.no is not very accurate, at least for Bordeaux, France.

Hello,

I can't make it work on Netrunner 16 (Kubuntu 15.04 derivative)

I followed the instructions of clearmartin and installed qml-module-qtquick-xmllistmodel and libqt5qml-graphicaleffects but I have this error :
- Can't find org.kde.weatherWidget

Report

paviluf

OK I make it work. There was a little error, at least for kubuntu, on the instructions :

1) Download the source (weather-widget.zip)
2) Unzip
3) Copy folder plasma-applet-weather-widget-master/org.kde.weatherWidget to ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/ (so you will have now existing folder: ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.weatherWidget/ with some stuff in it)
4) Copy file plasma-applet-weather-widget-master/org.kde.weatherWidget/metadata.desktop to folder ~/.local/share/kservices5/ and rename it as you like (e.g. weatherWidtget.desktop)
5) Restart plasma (e.g. by logging out and in again)
6) Now try to add the widget. Its name is "Weather Widget" in Widgets selection.

Hi,

Thanks for this weather widget - it does look great. However, I have come up against a fairly basic problem: I can't seem to change the city away from Bonn. :-/

I clicked the plus,then tried adding some URLs from yr.no, such as:

http://www.yr.no/place/United_Kingdom/England/Birmingham/

and

http://www.yr.no/place/Norway/Oslo/Oslo/Oslo/

They are recognised in the list. I then deleted the Bonn entry from the list. But, the widget still only gives Bonn's weather.

I installed it using the Archlinux AUR package.

Any idea?

Thanks.

Ah ha! I just spotted a "next location" button. When I clicked that it took me to Birmingham, then Oslo, and then NOT back to Bonn.

It seems this is just a usability issue then. When a location is deleted, it should update the current location, I think.

Thanks again - enjoying the widget!

After many attempts to get this working on kubuntu 15.04, I got it working after installing the package

qml-module-qtquick-xmllistmodel

and then logged out/in.

Without that package, an error message is displayed instead of the widget.

Hey, thank you for the nice plasmoid. I just have 2 small problems with the settings. In "General" I can't read the help text, because it does not use my dark theme font colour. So now it is black font on black background.

And in "Appearance" it doesn't visually say, if I chose °C or °F. The radio button is blank in both options.

9 excellent! @clearmartin, could you add a custom font size option like in the Event Calendar widget? (https://store.kde.org/p/998901/) Currently using the horizontal layout the font size is very large, see the image below: https://imgur.com/blzM3oT

Great plasmoid. Would it be possible to have an option to disable the blue text about "xxx minutes ago" in some future release? I is not at all legible in most panels or task bars and looks like broken pixels more than anything else. Would be awesome. Good work!
