Display ICAO METAR weather data with a Raspberry Pi
This project requires Python 3.6+ to run the
avwx library. Run these commands to see if you have it already. Whichever one prints 3.6+, use that.
python -V python3 -V python3.6 -V
If you're running this on a Raspberry Pi that does not yet have 3.6+ on it, you can find instructions here.
This version runs the METAR program on a touchscreen display.
However, the program can be run on any screen or computer in its own window for development purposes.
Install the dependancies using the Python version from above.
python3.6 -m pip install avwx-engine~=0.11.6 pygame~=1.9.3
Then just run the screen file to boot the display.
On the main display, pressing the RMK, WX, WX/RMK displays more METAR information. Pressing the gear displays more options.
