Description:

A simple desktop weather widget based on the default KDE widget that shows the current temp, forecast, and min/max temperature.

While useful for users, this can also serve as an example widget for other developers to use as a starting point to create their own weather widget.

Layout based on: https://www.deviantart.com/speedracker/art/Simple-Weather-Conky-Manager-587605695

  • Shows Environment Canada weather warnings (can be turned off).



If you'd like to play around with the CurrentWeatherView, edit the files in:
~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.github.zren.simpleweather/contents/ui/

To test, use:
plasmawindowed com.github.zren.simpleweather

If you wish to upload a fork to the KDE Store, please make sure to edit X-KDE-PluginInfo-Name in metadata.desktop beforehand. Follow the instructions in the tutorial below:

How can I get the big temperature as shown in your screenshot? Instead I have the weather icon...

The wetter.com data source does not have the "current temp" data. It only has the current day's "forecast" data which includes the weather type, icon, and min + max temp. I already display the min/max temp, so I used today's "forecast icon".

The solution is to use another data source if one is available.

I see. I was just irritated because your screenshot shows the current temperature. It's also fine with the icon. Is there a way to display the min/max temperature besode the icon in bigger font size?

I found a bug. The temperature doesn't display in wetter.com, always show 0ºC. For example in Almassora, Valencia.

Plasma's wetter.com data source either does not parse the current temperature from the API, or the API does not provide it. That is why this widget will instead show the current weather icon instead of the current temp.
