Re: Feature Requests

Thanks Dave, not sure how you would do it, maybe try to write and then time out if not finished in a reasonable amount of time?

Re: Feature Requests

Wonderful plugin - love the way it integrates with Fantastic Weather.

One request: would it be possible to pull the precipintensity field from Fantastic Weather so we could straightforwardly show the amount of precipitation expected hour by hour / day by day? Very important in the UK where it has a tendency to rain quite a lot in short bursts, and Darksky is pretty good at predicting when and where.

Glad you're enjoying the plugin.

It's not only possible, but would be relatively easy to implement. In fact, I'll look at what other fields might also be useful--if you have any suggestions, don't be shy. :D

Re: Feature Requests

Hr by hr expected rain is a huge deal for the PNW too - that would be a great add!!!!!!

Feel as if windspeed and direction would be good things to show on a chart (am a cyclist so what I care about is temp, precipitation and how much like hard work my ride to work is going to be) but not obvious that these could be shown straightforwardly on a chart that is also showing temp and rain!

Re: Feature Requests

Okay, I've been ruminating on this for a bit to try to come up with something that will be largely universal. The notion is that this would be a new chart type (Weather Detail Device or something like that). You would select whether you want the chart to contain hourly data or daily data, and the elements that you would like to have charted. The figure would grow or shrink depending on the elements added/subtracted (likely where user sets the number of pixels per plot shown). I think it's probably best to show each element as its own plot because there are too many possible Y axis units to contend with on a single chart (for example, the chart below contains four different Y axis units). Ignore the ugliness of the chart and focus rather on the implementation.

Will this work for you all?

ax2.plot(x, y)
ax2.set_title('wind bearing')

# Precip intensity is in inches of liquid rain per hour.
y = [0.0021, 0.0035, 0.0018, 0.0017, 0.0001, 0.0000, 0.0001, 0.0003]
y = [_ * 24 for _ in y]
ax3.plot(x, y)
ax3.set_title('precip intensity')

plt.show()

Re: Feature Requests

Looks pretty good (if not yet pretty!). Any way of showing wind speed as well as direction? Eg. Different sized bubbles?

I'll see what I can come up with. I think some folks might want them combined and some might want them separate.

Re: Feature Requests

Yes! I have been playing around with various approaches, interspersed with work on Area Charts. I'm not happy with it yet, but I'm hopeful that the first look at this will be in the next full release.
