Hi,

first of all thank you very much for this awesome plugin! I have personalized it here https://www.stintup.com/stazione-meteo-padova-arcella/  and I'm very happy of the final result.

What I would like to see is the possibility to create a table with max/min temperature of the days, months, years. Is that possible?

Moreover, I would like to use your plugin to create automatically a txt file constantly updated. The txt file should be like this: https://forum.meteonetwork.it/rete-stazioni-meteo-mymeteonetwork/163070-invio-dati-meteonetwork-raspberry-weewx-4.html#post1060754739 . Do you think that it's possible? Or anyone of you can help me to do it?

Thank you very much 🙂

Hello Franz.

Thanks for your kind words.  😊 

For now, there's clearly not a feature to do that. You can export a set of data as text, but this is an exportation tool and the result will not be refreshed every day.

Maybe could you explain me your use-case to see how Weather Station can handle it?

If you like Weather Station, please consider to make a review to help make it known. That would be the best way to thank me...

Hello Pierre, thank you very much for your fast reply! 🙂

My use-case is this: thanks to your plugin I'm able to fetch data from Netatmo server and publish in real time to my website. And this is awesome. However I would like to fetch data from Netatmo server and try to create automatically a file txt with all measurement updated automatically. This file is very useful to send Netatmo real time measurement to various weather service, like Meteonetwork, but even others around the world. Of course this is possible if someone is able to use Python (I think), but I'm not 😀 So I though that, since your plugin did the first step (fetch data), I could also use it to create this auto-update txt file.. but I know that this is something that very few people or maybe only me will use, so even if you can suggest me something I'll be more than happy 😀

OK. I see... What I do not understand is why sending more than current measurements? Weather networks I know consume only current data (not data from month, season, etc.). One of the de facto exchange standard is stickertags files. And Weather Station is able to publish stickertags files.

Given what you're saying to me, your need is wider than this... Could you give an example of such a file? Could you send me, too, the url of a site requesting such files. I will try to see if something is feasible, but I must understand which site (and for what) request a file with historical data...

Yes I was only confusing in my previous message...sorry for that!

I was so stupid that I didn't notice the option of stickertags file, this is pretty similar and that's an awesome feature! And now I'm going to ask them if this file could be ok... in my specific case the file is a txt like this: https://forum.meteonetwork.it/rete-stazioni-meteo-mymeteonetwork/163070-invio-dati-meteonetwork-raspberry-weewx-4.html#post1060754739 with delimitation ;

fvg010;$current.dateTime.format("%d/%m/%y");$current.dateTime.format("%H:%M");$current.outTemp.nolabel("%.1f","-99999");$current.barometer.nolabel("%.1f","-99999");$current.outHumidity.formatted;$current.windSpeed.nolabel("%.1f","-99999");$current.windDir.nolabel("%.0f","-99999");$day.wind.max.nolabel("%.1f","-99999");$current.rainRate.nolabel("%.1f","-99999");$day.rain.sum.nolabel("%.1f","-99999");$current.dewpoint.nolabel("%.1f","-99999");WeeWx;0.1;-99999;-99999;-99999;-99999;

Where fvg010 are the number of station in the network ( https://www.meteonetwork.it/rete/livemap/ ).

Cool. I propose you ask them first if they can ingest stickertags files. If it's the case, it's ready to use. If it's not the case, I can write a module for that, but I must know exactly the format they use (not the format you send). Let's try first to see if they are ok with stickertags (crossed fingers)... 🙂

Hi, sadly they said that the file is similar to what they want but the format of it was not.

I try to send you what they want in the attached file, but I don't know if it's possible to do that :/

Hello Franz.

Sorry for this sad news. It's strange they doesn't accept standard formats and they thought to make their own "standard"... Never mind, we will try another thing: do you know if they accept other standards? If I ask it's because I'm not "against" developing a new feature for Weather Station, but I want it to be a standard. Developing a specific feature for a specific network (with not so many stations, as soon as I can understand) takes time for a small result.

If they have no compliance with other "pulling" standard, do you know if Weather Station can push data to them? And if so with which standard? Do they have APIs? 

If you have a contact person in this organization (somebody who have answers 😉 ) I can contact her/him to ask. But it's up to you 🙂

Hello Pierre, I totally agree with you! That is the major and most important network for Italy, but only for Italy, that's why there are not so many stations 😀 

Actually I use another platform to send data to Wunderground and then send to them. Of course data are delayed of 30+ minutes.

These are the methods they support actually: http://wiki.meteonetwork.it/index.php/Upload_dati (I'm sorry that it's only in italian).

The only way to contact them is by the tickets (more than 5 days to have an answer :/ ): http://my.meteonetwork.it/index.php?action=ticket or by the forum: https://forum.meteonetwork.it/ .

Lastly, I do not know how to thank you, you're trying to help me a lot in this even if this is actually not related with your software! 

P.S. I have asked some days ago to them via ticket if the stickertags file is not accepted since it is not a txt classic format or for the comma that divides the values or if it's totally unusable by them.. I'm waiting an answer from them by next week, I hope..
