Weather

New in v2.3
- direct update by clicking on the degree symbol
- fixed major bug with accuweather.com showing always moon icon
- automatically checking for an update at startup

New in v2.2 :
- small bug fixes (3 digit temperature, unfinished timer)

Here is my first Konfabulator Widget. After seeing a preview of Tiger (particularly Dashboard), reading about a alternative for Windows (Konfabulator) and seeing the great work of Saladin and Ghostwalker, I decided to make my own contribution. So here it is, the konfab clone of the weather widget.

Version History
v1.0
———————–
- main weather widget functions
- double click to drop up and down forecast information
- shift+alt+double click will show the demomode (switch all the available icons)
- insert city on the back side
- insert metrics on the back side

v1.1
———————–
- bug fixed when first load widget. the forecast toggle will be recognized

v1.2
———————–
- added shadow
- grid bug fixed
- added extended tooltip information on large icon
- fixed an error in the original apple script which comes up at sunset/sunrise time about midnight
- fixed minor graphic bugs

v1.3
———————–
- fixed bug: Behaviour of close button on widget state “below”
- grid bug fixed finally

v1.4
———————–
- add handling during lost connection (drop down isn’t working anymore if connection is lost)
- the info is always slightly visible now
- add handling if the widget is near the bottom or top of the screen
- add new close button (thanks to Magnus Wild)
- add new true type font Helvetica LT 45 Light for displaying the temperature (thanks to ZeroSpice)
- add hide close button option
- add setting background opacity

v1.5
———————–
- changed temperature from text to image, no extra font needed anymore (and closed the shadow discussions with this patch).
- for the rest, general font now is Arial (because Konfabulator sets Arial per Default if specified Font is ignored, topic closed now)

Version 2.0
———————–
- add flipping animation
- loading new weather feed if after changing temp unit
- add weather.com feed
- calculate moon-phase
- add new mini icon
- add border handling
- remember dropdown state

[...] Widgety Widgety sú, hm no neviem to vysvetli?, v novej Opere sú preložené ako pomôcky. Na používanie widgetov používam program Yahoo! Widget engine, cez ktorý používané widgety spravujem. Tent program sa mi osved?il a používam ho nejaký ?as a hlavne je free. Nevyužívam ve?a widgetov, iba 2 a to na zobrazenie po?asia a informácii o systéme. Weather zobrazuje aktuálne po?asie písomne aj graficky, dokonca aj z Prešova. V nastaveniach je potrebné si prepnú? na server AccuWeather.com. Po dvojkliku na widget sa Vám zobrazí predpove? na 6 dní. [...]
