One of the most popular plugins of included into the Wallaboard core installation is the Weather Plugin.
Based on the popular YAWP, it is a super simple and super powerful tool to create stunning animation with your preferred elements (such as icons or conditions).
Configure the Weather Plugin
Go to settings>Yawp and configure your city and other settings.
First of all, you will need an API Key from your Openweathermap.org account: it’s free and you can get it at http://openweathermap.org/appid.
Once you have your key, just copy and paste it on the proper field.
Can I use custom icon set?
Yes you can. Unpack your icon set to plugins->yet-another-weather-plugin->images and rename your icons to match the name of the current icon for corresponding weather type. Note: your icons must have .png extension.
How do I embed Weather elements within my animations?
Here is a list of available shortcodes that you can embed in your custom Revolution Slider animation:
- [yawpdisplay condition=”temperature”] (i.e. “39° F”)
- [yawpdisplay condition=”conditions”] (i.e. “Cloudy”)
- [yawpdisplay condition=’icon’] (the absolute path to the weather icon)
- <img src=”[yawpdisplay condition=’icon’]” /> (a way to display the icon)
New shortcodes will be added soon.
