Hi Randy, yes sorry, I know setup should be easier / self explanatory, but I didn’t yet get a chance to improve it.
The trick is to customize the example URL found at www.wufyi.com or www.beta.wufyi.com (advantage of beta URL is that it does not require a wunderground API key, thus allowing you to avoid one whole step).
You would need to copy and paste the example url somewhere and systematically replace parameters with your own, so for example:
would be customized to include your parameters:
If everything works as it should, you should see something like:
“The latest data from 150 seconds ago was transferred over to pwsweather.com”
Otherwise you will get a notice about an error (such as wunderground station being wrong, or pwsweather password being incorrect…). If you see an error, check the parameter you are trying to use, or email the URL you are trying to use to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll help you further.
When you are finished customizing your URL, you will need to periodically request it. This will trigger a one time data transfer between wunderground and pwsweather, each time your custom URL is requested.
In order to automate this process (which is the last step you would need to do). You would need to setup a free account at a cron-job provider, such as www.cron-job.org. There you would use the custom wufyi URL you’ve created within a cron-job setup dialog, which looks something like this:
This is it. From now on just check back if you see an issue, otherwise data should be transferring automatically in the background.
Again, don’t hesitate to contact email@example.com in case you run into any issues.
