Conky Tips and Tricks

Teo's Scripts in a nutshell

Teo's scripts use 4 different weather sites

Some for USA users, others for International Users

Accuweather's pages are different for US and International users.  Which strikes me as halarious because for me The USA has always held "International" status.  Yea yea, I know Accuweather is a US site!

However, to continue

1a)Accuweather - INTERNATIONAL USERS -  conditions: font
1a)Accuweather - ALL USERS -  conditions: font
  • Now
  • Today forecast
  • Tonight forecast
  • 9 extra days
1b)Accuweather - USA USERS - conditions: font defunct
  • Today
  • Tomorrow
  • 3 extra days

    1c)Accuweather RSS - All users - conditions: font
  • Current
  • Today's forecast (by date)
  • Tomorrow's Forecast (by date)


1d1)Accuweather - Images - INTERNATIONAL USERS - conditions: images
  • Now
  • Today Forecast
  • Tonight Forecast
  • 9 extra days


1d1.1)Accuweather - Images - INTERNATIONAL USERS_Hourly_Forecast
  • Weather for the next 16 hours


1d2)Accuweather - ConkyWeather font - INTERNATIONAL USERS
  • Now
  • Today Forecast
  • Tonight Forecast
  • 9 extra days
  • The difference between 1a) and 1d2) - 1a has a "C" version (language) - apparently faster - I have not tried it.


1e)Accuweather - Images - USA USERS
  • Now
  • Today Forecast
  • Tonight Forecast
  • 9 extra days


2)WUnderground ICAL - International users - conditions: font
  • day - night forecasts for 7 days


NWS XML - USA users - NOAA Weather Service - conditions: images (Opinion alert: YUK on those images)
  • day - night forecasts for 7 days


Weather.com conky script - all users - conditions: images
  • Now
  • Today's FULL forecast
  • Tonight's FULL forecast
  • 10 extra days
  • has a C version of the scripts included.


The differences in images between Accuweather and Weather·com
  • Accuweather uses rectangular images - a little more difficult to "space" them[/*]
  • Weather·com used square images and are better looking (Opinion alert)



In the directory for each of Teo's scripts you'll see a couple of PDF files.

If you look at, for example: 1d1_Output_of_the_script.pdf you will see numbers on the left.

1, 2, 3, 4 etc

those are the 1p, 2p, 3p, 4p etc in the conky commands:
Code: [Select]
↑ ${execi 600 sed -n '19p' /media/5/Conky/accuweather_conky/tod_ton}°
if you look at "tod_ton" you will see 19 is a number ... in representing the high temperature

Sorry about that Jed ...
I need a coffee!

Love what you are doing!!!  You and VastOne have the space for larger fonts, that makes a BIG difference.

Opinion: Since pictures speak a thousand words, I don't use text for the conditions.

For a few reasons really:
  • Now - look at the image/font - look outside
  • Forecasts change by the hour at times, a scientifically configured guess:

  • Monday it says Rain on Friday
  • Tuesday it says Cloudy for Friday
  • Wednesday it says Sunny for Friday
  • 4 or more days away - a scientifically configured wild hunch

    If every job in the world allowed for that kind of accuracy ... can you imaging the chaos!

See I have to agree with Teo!  In fact there is no doubt in my mine they suck!

They suck the weather info right outta the web and splatter all over your conky ... kinda like cod liver oil and .... What's that?

No Teo, the honour is mine!

Your scripts:
  • light on resources
  • very easy to configure
  • super PDF documentation, and last but not least
  • 4 different sites
Not all scripts can say that!

Yesterday I helped folti over on the Ubuntu forums with two conkys he wanted to merge. One as he describe it is an:htc-like weather report that used conkyForecast.  The post if you care to see the original codesOPINION ALERT! The code is .. ummm .. less than good  So, since I had an I'm in, I'm out, I'm in, I'm out, kinda day I worked on it ... below is the result of what I did.

I think it's pretty nice that conkyForecast is still working despite what one person said about all of kaivalagi's scripts, and specifically referring to conkyForecast, "having had their day, are now dead"

After doing that, I though I'll one of Teo's scripts to do the same.  Doruletz beat me to it.  I think the clock is popular!

Quote from: folti
when merged, without arguments for weather report, conkyrc looks like this:

It is something that can be done ... but spacing (width) needs working on.

I have to go out now ... will come up with a better solution later.

                      conky In progress:                EDIT! the finished conky
                                 

One change I made was to put the cpugraph over the "Total CPU" bar, that why it has a white border.  The graph is red the bar is blue.
The same can be done for the CPU bars 1 and 2, maker a graph for them in the same way.


If you don't like it change:
Code: [Select]
Total CPU:
 ${cpu cpu0}%${goto 40}${color 597DB2}${cpubar cpu0}${color}${goto 40}${cpugraph cpu0 -t 20,210 FF0000 FFFF33}
to
Code: [Select]
Total CPU:
 ${cpu cpu0}%${goto 40}${color 597DB2}${cpubar cpu0}${color}
${goto 40}${cpugraph cpu0 -t 20,210 FF0000 FFFF33}

IMO, kaivalagi's conkyForecast will hopefully never die.  Whoever said that wasn't thinking it through.  All the different weather scripts out there are good for different groups and skill levels of users!  I learned a lot with conkyForecast, and still switch back and forth between the different scripts available for weather.  ATM I'm using arclance's weather, but tomorrow, it may be back to conkyForecast, or Teo's for that matter.  Or mrpeachy's v9000 which is also exemplary!  Long live conkyForecast!!!

The guy that said that is not around anymore due to his "bad attitude".  And you are right. There are a lot more scripts out there than we know.  They come in forms that are simple to use up to the you need a Master Degree in Programming to do anything with them.

conkyForecast is like a third hand for me, I've used it since the beginning.
Teo's scripts are easy to use and there are various sites you can use.
mrperachy's v9000 require a bit more thinking but once done looks a lot like conkyForecast

I'll bet I could take my current conky with mrpeachy's v9000 script and make one very similar with Teo's script and in my sleep do one for conkyForecast.

The beauty of cF is it's use of a template - one "execpi" hets it all, v9000 does the same, but Teo's require a call for each but of info ... it is however reading from the HDD as it gets everything from the net with one call, set's it up and then reads from local files.  VERY light on resources as well.

cF in a terminal ---- I love it:

Anyone that has used conky for a while, or even once, knows there are various conky commands that use colours.  The start is found above text where we can define various defaults - if we choose - they are all optional.

Above TEXT:

colorN
    Predefine a color for use inside TEXT segments. Substitute N by a digit between 0 and 9, inclusively. When specifying the color value in hex, omit the leading hash (#).

default_color
    Default color and border color

default_outline_color
    Default outline color

default_shade_color
    Default shading color and border's shading color


NOTE: See that "omit the leading hash (#)" with colorN, it's only mentioned there, however it should be applied throughout your conky.

An example from one of my conkys:
Code: [Select]
###  Color Settings  #########################################################
draw_shades no
default_shade_color 000000 #  0   0   0   Black
draw_outline no # amplifies text if yes
default_outline_color 000000 #  0   0   0   Black

default_color DCDCDC #220 220 220   Gainsboro
color0 8FBC8F #143 188 143   DarkSeaGreen
color1 778899 #119 136 153   LightSlateGray
color2 FF8C00 #255 140   0   DarkOrangeh

One can also use the colour names - ie:
Code: [Select]
color5 NavajoWhite
color6 DeepSkyBlue


There is one more in the own_window section:
Code: [Select]
own_window_colour grayNOTE: the British English spelling. This is the ONLY place where colour is spelled with British spelling (I'm a Canuck, we use it as well.)


Below TEXT
The color command to use in it's various forms is:

${color}
  • use this for whatever colour is used the most in your conky
    • The above is just a tip - but isn't all of this
  • to get the default colour in your conky as defined above TEXT
  • it's also use to "turn colour off"
${colorN}
  • the fast way to get any of 10 predefined colours configured above TEXT

${color colorname}
  • the use of colour names

${color xxxxxx}
  • the command with the six digit/character HEX CODE

Where does one find these codes and names.  Most colour pickers have them, like "color2", the colour chooser in geany is almost the same but no drop down list.
color2geany
