pagis's picture

oops, i just realised, it requires a customised handler for that

M_Bln's picture

At first: Thank you for your work.

Secondly I wanted to inform you about my post about wether apps in general here: https://together.jolla.com/question/85490/meteo-app-improvements/

Maybe you can use some ideas...!?

jolla_jo's picture

First of all thanks for the nice app!

Using the Jolla Store version, I recently discovered, that the regular updates don't seem to work. For testing purposes, I set an update interval of 30 mins this morning, and yet a few minutes ago the meecast cover displayed an update time stamp, which was almost 2 hours back. Only after watching the cover display for 10 seconds or so the update time was updated. I guess it should anyway update also when the device is sleeping?

vasvlad's picture

Try to use MeeCast Daemon for correctly updating weather forecast https://openrepos.net/content/vasvlad/meecast-daemon

 

jolla_jo's picture

So this is expected behaviour when not using the daemon?

vasvlad's picture

Meecast ( standart application) doesn't update weather forecast on sleeping mode.

 

 

jolla_jo's picture

Is it not using libiphb? Anyhow, thanks for your quick reply, i installed the daemon now!

Update: Not working with the daemon either :-/ I set the interval to 15 mins, waited for 20 mins, unlocked the phone and are displayed the old time of the last update on the app cover. Only after some seconds the weather data seems to be updated. Repeated a couple of times, 100% reproducable.

vasvlad's picture

Did you reboot your device after install meecast daemon?

jolla_jo's picture

I hadn't previously rebooted, I only made sure the daemon was running. However, I did reboot just after seing your message, but the problem persists. Update interval is 15 mins, just unlocked the phone at 10:32 and the last update time stamp shows 10:10. After a few seconds it's updated to 10:32. Both daemon and app installed via openrepos.

Does it update the data at regular intervals in your phone? What kind of mechanism do you use in the daemon to wake up the device to update the data?

vasvlad's picture

See source code https://github.com/Meecast/meecast/blob/sailfishos/meecast/meecastdaemon...

Do you have constant connection to Internet on your device?

I  have not any problem with automatic updating of weather forecast on phone.

Vlad.

jolla_jo's picture

Yes, I do have constant connectivity. And meecast does update the data immediately when I unlock the phone. Just that it should have updated it already before at the specified interval.

I might check the source at some point, thanks for the link. I wonder if I'm really the only one with this problem...

vasvlad's picture

I can build meeCast Daemon package with debug output  to log file especialy for you.

 

jolla_jo's picture

Sorry for the quiet period, didn't really find the time to write...

So I did check the source only so much that I found you use the nemokeepalive-thingy to wake up, so I guess that should work. I then noticed that the daemon was not running (anymore?) on my phone, and it wasn't restarted either when rebooting and restarting meecast. I'm quite sure though it was running some days ago, when I started these experiements...

Anyhow, starting the daemon manually fixed things :-) The only question I now have left is, should the daemon somehow start automatically when meecast is started or the device is booted? Or should I create a systemd script for it?

vasvlad's picture

Use those commands:

systemctl-user enable meecastd.service

systemctl-user start meecastd.service

jolla_jo's picture

Thanks, works like a charm now. No idea how I got the service disabled in the first place, might be because I played with systemd files in another context.

Sorry to bother, and, once again, thanks for the app! :-)

Slovenian translation for 0.9.16 is broken -- language can be selected, but interface stays in english (except short names of days).

vasvlad's picture

Thanks for bug report. It will be fixed in the next version.

Vlad.

cocovina's picture

Have the same problem with Czech translation.

sponka's picture

Thanks, I am so used to all-english interface that didn't notice at first.

I also checked N9 version and it's the same, but IIRC it never worked on N9.

izmisljator's picture

Can you make a Sailfish theme of MeeCast for Harmatan version on N9 please. It would be awesome if it could folow the themes changing on the phone. And keep up the exellent work you doing. Thank's MAN

 

samiperkele's picture

MeeCast constantly crashed (version 0.9.14), when I was trying to update weather information. I have only FMI and Foreca stations added. I think that crash was related to the fact that http://ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/saa/Helsinki was not giving weather information either. Now that site works, and MeeCast does not crash anymore. Maybe it crashed, because the data was not available.

vasvlad's picture

Thanks for bug report. I just added Helsinki and I hope to catch this problem

Vlad.

Mystery47's picture

Fantastic weather app on SailfishOS. If app need updating or bug fixing it have done fast. Good job Vlad!

Mariusmssj's picture

Sorry for a stupid question. I know Meecast allows you to chose from different weather channel providers but I can't seem to find an option how to change them. Am I missing something?

vasvlad's picture

You can choose weather channel providers when you will add a new station.

daveinuk's picture

This is a brilliant weather app! Works perfect in the UK, easy to navigate, using openweathermap.org seems to be spot on, it is a polished smooth app with bags of features and is far better IMO than what I have used on android, hats off to the good man that brought this about, well done sir !

eson's picture

Updated Swedish translation don't appear on my device. It's still the same incomplete translation.

vasvlad's picture

I'm sorry. Seem like I forgot to run script for updating of translations before building the  package.

Swedish translation will be available in the next release.

Vlad.

eson's picture

That's ok... at least I know there's nothing wrong with my system.

deiv's picture

why the app does not find certain locations (for example, my home town) while on site weather station you can find it without problems?
