If you look at the driver what does it say for ‘forecastIcon’?



ah I think I understand


According to @josh and this list:

SharpTools Weather Tile Icon Mappings · GitHub

This is correct :slight_smile:


If it’s ‘clear’ then @josh shows a ‘sunny’ icon

So, maybe that's the correct icon


Yes, I turned the switch from forecast to current. Waiting for a poll (manual not doing it) to see if it changes to the current conditions (partly cloudy).


I’d forgotten I added that switch :slight_smile:
It’s been a few months since I worked on that driver
All I did yesterday was add the extra attribute and map the weather icon to it.



I just checked my code.
The switch shouldn’t make any difference for the forecastIcon attribute
I mapped it directly.
It’s only the weather icon that would change.

So if it says ‘cloudy’ that’s what wu is sending.



I could probably change the forecast icon too of you really want the current icon rather than the forecast one.
I would just need to add a bit of code.

so … you know the province you are in but not the city? :wink:


I'm in "The Beach" as the locals call it. The neighborhood is in Toronto proper. "Scarborough Junction" is a neighborhood also in Toronto, but 7 Kilometers away from here (as that's where the closest station that uploads to Apixu is).

Honestly could care less about what the weather is in another province, and if I did, I would know what I was looking at by the city or neighborhood name displayed. Wouldn't need to know the province or state to understand the dashboard tile :wink:


ha ... you should move to the US :slight_smile:


Move back you mean. I'm from California. Never heard of Franklin.
Ben rings a bell though! :smile:


which one? :wink:



Franklin California, but I also don't know what they mean by disambiguation. They're not sure it exists, but they decided to list it anyway? :rofl:


CA cant just have one of those: :wink:




To my recollection, I've never been to any of those "Franklins" in California, or even knew they existed!


probably passed thru one of those on the way to the wineries :slight_smile:


Maybe. It's been 20 years since I was in Sonoma. I'm usually just passing through on my way to SF from Oregon.
