WUnderground Plugin Gauge Pack

Update: the WUnderground Gauge Pack is now available from Github. All future updates will be posted there.

Download the WUnderground Gauge Pack

This is something that I've wanted to do for some time, and I finally found myself with both the time and the motivation.

What is it?
The WUnderground Plugin Gauge Pack is a series of nested folders that contain many, many PNG files that allow users to have the ability to create custom Control Page gauges for select plugin device states. In other words, on the inside, it looks like this:

What can you do with it?
Well, a picture is worth a thousand words. Here's one option:

Is it hard to use?
Not really, but it's not a slam dunk either. Much more detailed usage instructions will be forthcoming once IndigoDomo approves the file in the library.
Download the file here: WUnderground Plugin Gauge Pack

What if a value is out of range?
I've tried to account for that. Here's what an out of range value could look like (note that this is an example and the gauge needle in this instance is *not* out of range.) There are several colors to choose from.

I will continue to add options and refine images over time. Happy to consider requests. This is my first crack at something so comprehensive, so please be kind! :D

Enjoy!

Re: Announcing the WUnderground Plugin Gauge Pack

Here's a peek at the newest additions to the gauge pack that I have just posted. There are many refinements to the images that were in the original file, including a renaming of several of the segments to group them and make them easier to identify. I realize that this is a pain, but I think it's the best approach long term. You can easily continue to use prior versions of the files, no problem. (The image I'm attaching looks best at high screen brightness due to the darkness of the background.)

Re: Announcing the WUnderground Plugin Gauge Pack

Version 1.2 of the WUnderground Plugin Gauge Pack is now available.

A summary of the changes:

- Faces:
    - Adds a color scale 3D face (three quarter).
    - Adds a color scale 3D face (full ring).
    - Adds folder for color scale background images.
    - Adds a three quarter color scale:
    - (third red, third yellow, third green.)
    - (third blue, third green, third red.)
    - Adds a gradient color scale (blended)
    - (red to yellow to green.)
    - (blue to green to red.)
- Scales:
    - Adds UV (0 to 11)
    - Adds temperature c scale -25 to 25, with color ranges (thanks sleepy81!)
- Indicators:
    - Adds generic indicator for (0 to 40) scale.
    - Adds temperature indicators for temperature c scale (thanks sleepy81!)
    - Adds overage indicators for temperature c scale (-30 to 30)
    - Adds overage indicators for temperature f scale (-25 to 100)
- Themes:
    - Adds aviation bezels at 50 percent and 25 percent size.
    This includes ring lights and center bubbles.
    There are no indicators specifically built for these bezels at this point.

Here's a couple of examples showing the new scale faces. The colored areas around the center bubble are transparent, so they will show whatever you put behind them. The first example is a typical use case. The second example shows how you can put anything behind the face to show something else like an alert status, on/off state of a device, etc. As always, these are available in many different colors (3D and flat faces.)

Enjoy!

Re: WUnderground Plugin Gauge Pack

I've consolidated all my file library graphics onto Github. They're spread across two different repos:
