Widget: yr.no

by

Following a user request, the team at UBiT 2010 has produced a weather widget for Mac OS X 10.4.3 and later using data from the Norwegian weather site yr.no. This application admittedly has little to do with the library, but it has everything to do with new technologies…so expect to see library widgets built using the same techniques in the very near future.

    Sadly this widget does not work on my Leopard MacBook.

  2. brinxmat Says:

    @MacMan: can you specify the problem; did the widget not install/not function when installed?

  3. Tormod Says:

    Takk, dette hadde jeg ventet på! Er det mulig å få meldinger for utlandet? Hittil har jeg bare greid norske.

  4. Ulrik Says:

    Funker ikke. Jeg får ikke valgt sted fra forslagslista…

      Hmm. Kan ikke si at jeg vet hva som skjer her, men jeg har imidlertid oppdatert widgeten. Prøv den gjerne nå.

    Den hittar inte varken OBBOLA eller UMEÅ som jag bor i… Trist.

    Hej🙂

    Jeg bruker denne filen som lokasjonsdatagrunnlag, og den inneholder ikke utenlansk data😦

    Det finnes sannsynligvis en bedre måte å gjøre dette på!

    Yr har nok endret APIer, for nå fungerer ikke widgetet lengre.

    Hvor er Opera Widgetet? Bør være neeesten samme koden + config.xml.

    Takk for denne – enkel og grei, jeg ble redd jeg måtte prøve å skrive selv, men da blir det eksamenslesning i stedet😉

    Hi, I can’t get this to work on OS X 10.6.6. Widget opens in dashboard, but the front only shows “Text” at the top. I hit “i”, type in the placename “Melbourne”, then return (or enter), but nothing happens.

    Hey, the same problem here. Just like Pete it opens in dashboard but the front shows only “Text” at the top, and when I push ‘”i” and fill in different city names like London, Amsterdam etc it does not return any result..
    Please advise how to deal with this.

    • brinxmat Says:

      Yep, might be broken — I have to admit to this not being a top priority anymore — if you want to tinker with the code, please feel free🙂

    Another option is to open up the relevant page in Safari, then select the menu File > Open in Dashboard… This works well and creates a widget with the graphic meteogram at least.
