Re: Feature Requests

Good. Now we're getting someplace. I have added validation back in to ensure that users select at least two forecast elements, which will be in the next build.

  1. Making a precipitation bar chart option should be a fairly light lift. I think it makes sense to make it another option in the plot element list:
    • Total Precipitation (Bar)
    • Total Precipitation (Line)

  2. That one is a bit trickier. It's obviously possible, but I'm struggling to think of a way to set limits for five (could be more later) distinct ranges without overpowering the UI [temp, humidity, pressure, wind, precip]. My initial suggestion would be to have an expandable section for min/max where you could set ranges for each type of plot. At least that way you can hide them away when not in use. Let me mull this one for a bit.
I'm also working on a feature which (if successful) will allow an import of settings from another (similar) chart device -- in other words, when creating a new line chart device, you'd be able to copy the settings over from an established line chart device. This was a feature request and a dern good one if I can make it work properly.

Re: Feature Requests

v0.8.24 is now available on Github, which adds the following:

  • Adds precipitation bar chart option for composite forecast devices.
  • Adds min/max settings for composite weather device elements.
  • Changes device type name for composite forecast devices.
  • Reorders plot elements list for composite forecast device.
  • Enables validation for composite forecast device.
  • Code refinements.
There will likely be additional UI refinements as I'm not completely happy with what's there for these additional features. Please let me know if any of these changes don't play well.
