New Mythweather Tasks

Reported by: stuartm Owned by: stuartm
Priority: major Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythweather Version: head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description (last modified by stuartm)

  • Screen setup could be a lot easier to use and should probably include a Finish button for saving changes instead of using 'M' (see the mythmusic visualizer dialog in trunk for a possible example)
  • The modules for the perl scripts should be installed to the perl directory and not /usr/{local/}share/mythtv/
  • If a script fails we should inform the user and continue display data for the scripts which worked. Current behaviour is just to continue showing the 'retrieving weather data' screen until the user hits escape.

Please remove duplicate images:

As these are already included in the default mythtv installation (for svn:13926). and causes packaging issues.

Screens can not be added in setup. Each script fails with the "Add Screen Error" except the NWS alerts.

Search box for NWS alerts mangles numbers.

I've just finished writing a BBC based grabber which provides data for the UK and international locations (major towns/cities), it should make a reasonable default for most users. I'll attach patches for testing soon, but I want to fix a few of the more annoying problems with the revamped mythweather first.

(In [14349]) Don't add formatting touches to the translation string in mythweather.

Refs #3722

comment:7 Changed 12 years ago by stuartm

(In [14350]) Makes a start on fixing a number of issues and bugs in the revamped mythweather.

  • Don't use MENU to save settings changes, adds a Finish button instead for better consistency with other areas of MythTV.
  • Don't hard code strings in the theme files but allow them to be translated (screen settings page)
  • In the source setting page, always select the first item in the list on loading.
  • Minor cleanup

comment:16 Changed 11 years ago by stuartm

(In [15908]) Move the weather grabbing scripts into subdirectories according to the source they grab from. This is purely to make it easier to manage the scripts down the line but is also necessary for that same reason.

NOTE you will need to rerun mythweather setup twice, the first time so that it deletes the old screens and a second time to add the re-add them. Apologies for this, but better this change is made now than after 0.21 is released where it will cause much more disruption.

Thanks to Joe Ripley for the original patch which made this possible.

(In [16437]) Reorganise and clean up the mythweather setup screens, no functional change but hopefully a little easier to understand. Refs #3722

comment:20 Changed 11 years ago by stuartm

(In [16441]) Don't add a screen to the inactive list if we don't have the data to actually use it. Refs #3722

comment:21 Changed 11 years ago by stuartm

(In [16451]) Usability improvements to mythweather setup. Inform users when a location search is occuring and list possible sources for each screen. Refs #3722

Resolution: fixed
Status: startedclosed

I think I've addressed some of the biggest problems with the current mythweather. Themes could still use some work and setup could be further improved but I'll look at those as separate issues from now on.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
