Really nice little App. Can you add high-res / bigger graphics and an option to scale the fonts? This would be nice on tablet/bigger screens.

vasvlad's picture

Hi

Can you send or show me screenshot from tabblet?

И как теперь в версии 1.1.7-6 настроить станции погоды, если их нет?

vasvlad's picture

Это баг. Исправлен в версии 1.1.8

Этим базам-потеряшкам ещё бы

sqlite3 "$FILENAME" VACUUM

делать перед добавлением в пакет - совсем красота бы была.

Since I upgraded to 1.1.6-15 the Meecast widget patch displays the same day twice:

(SFOS 1.1.7.28 weather data supplied by Foreca)

Edit: issue fixed after I switched to weather.com

elastic's picture

Hi - just to inform you - in openrepos the 1.0-10 is recognized as the latest version - not the 1.0.4-4 - must be a problem with the name !

vasvlad's picture

Thanks for bug report.

 

pagis's picture

Hello,

is it possible to include metoffice.gov.uk as another weather source?

vasvlad's picture

It is possible. But I don't have free time for it :(

 

Vlad

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
