The Official WeatherBug Community
Dear WeatherBug Mac users,
Thanks to the diligent work of Stuart Ball (the developer of WeatherCat), there is now a new version the LWC Web Data Uploader that can be used to upload weather station data to WeatherBug. You can download the latest version here:
This new version submits monthly rainfall data as noted in version 1.4 of the WeatherBug upload API.
Previous users of this script will need to copy the configuration information from the old script to the new version. The easiest way to do this is to open the old script with the AppleScript Editor, copy the configuration information, and paste it in the corresponding "empty" configuration section of the new version. As noted in the documentation, be careful to avoid corrupting the AppleScript when modifying configuration settings.
As noted in discussions elsewhere on WeatherBug, this new version of the script will run on WeatherCat only! Support for Lightsoft Weather Center (LWC) has been discontinued with this release of the script. This was necessary because the monthly rainfall data was not available to AppleScripts under LWC. An extension has been provided by Stuart Ball to allow this script to query WeatherCat to obtain this number. There was no other way to get this data.
Therefore existing users of the LWC Web Data Uploader script are asked to either upgrade to WeatherCat or discontinue submitting data to WeatherBug as it no longer meets the WeatherBug submission criteria. WeatherCat can be downloaded for free while it remains in public beta. The public beta is expected to last through the end of March.
Thank you for your interest.
