Description:

This screenlet is based off the ClearWeather screenlet by Whise. My goal is to create a screenlet that has increased user configuration options, while still staying somewhat simplistic. I intend to make SmoothWeather a single application that you can go to for your weather needs.

In this package I have included the Blue theme for ClearWeather as well as one I made which is based off of the Blue theme, but uses the Shiny icons. Those are the icons you can see in the screenshot.

I am not a python expert or anything, so if there are issues let me know here in the comments. Thanks!

Installation:

- extract the contents of the archive to the .screenlets directory under your home directory
- if you want to share the screenlet with other users on the same system extract the contents of the archive to /usr/local/share/screenlets/

Update:
- close the SmoothWeather screenlet if you have it running
- delete the SmoothWeather directory from your .screenlets or /usr/local/share/screenlets/ directory
- extract the contents of the updated version to the screenlets directory that you just removed the old version from

Upcoming Features:

NOTE: These are features that are being worked on for the future releases. These do not indicate that they will be incorporated in the next release.


- Audible/Visual alerts for severe/warning weather conditions

- Audible description of current conditions

- Condition description when mousing over a day weather icon

I think the syntax that weather channel website uses was updated or changed because this screenlet has failed to work for me on 2 separate computers now. I tried plugging in the exact website the widget uses (and substituting my zip code and using metric) and here is what I get...

http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/'19102'?cc=*&dayf=10&prod=xoap&par=1003666583&key=4128909340a9b2fc&unit='m'

I've also seen them use a type of zone format like "USPA0000" so I'm not sure if something changed in the syntax. Either way, it don't work. lol.

Is there something that needs to be updated? I checked the radar link and it seems to be fine. But it comes up blank and then does not let me switch back to the weather screen.
