Niagara Weather Widget


Overview


The weather widget retrieves live weather data from the Open Weather Map Weather Service. The icon and temperature updates in real-time when the weather report updates. The Open Weather Map Weather Service is FREE and access is provided by a free API key which must be entered on the property sheet. Add our open weather service to the station services configuration.

Note: The Wunderground weather service is no longer free, so we have changed weather providers. If you have a Wunderground API key it will stop working soon. Our Weather Service module is Free when bought with this widget.

Usage


1. Copy the weatherWidget-ux.jar file to your modules directory.
2. Open the module from your palette file.
3. Drag and drop the widget from the palette onto your px view.

Using in your HTML Page


You can use the widget in your custom html page as long as the html file is in a appropriate station directory.
E.g. C:/../stationName/shared/webfiles/demo1.html

1. Create an html page and place in your station files directory.
2. Create a div element and give it an id so you can inject the widget into this area. E.g.: widget1.
3. Add the following scripts before the closing head tag or the closing body tag. E.g.:


<script type="text/javascript">

    var require = {
        paths: {
            "nmodule": "/module",
            "baja": "/module/bajaScript/rc/plugin/baja",

Licensing


Widgets and drivers must be licensed with us. Licenses are bound to the stations host Id. You will be provided access to the Software and Licensing Portal where you can manage your own licenses. Here you can add, update, or delete licenses as needed.

There are few ways to get a license file:

1. Add our licensing module to your station services. This module automatically retrieves the license from our servers and saves it to your stations shared folder directory.

2. Alternatively, Login to the Software and Licensing Portal (link provided in Order Confirmation) and add your host id's as needed. Copy the license file to the stations shared directory.

Finally, make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.
