Folder Contents

Modified Files

The Raspberry Pi folder contains the files I customized to run the Kindle Weather Display with date/time display on a Raspberry Pi web server.

Raspberry Pi folder (contents to be placed on linux webserver)

  • weathercrontab - example of crontab job to run at 2 hour intervals
  • - modified version to add date and time calculations. NOTE: This file will need to be modified to reflect your proper latitude and longitude.
  • weather-script-output.png - PNG of latest weather data fetch
  • weather-script-output.svg - SVG of latest weather data fetch
  • weather-script-preprocess.svg - template for weather data. Includes place holder for date and time (called DATE_VALPLACE)

5 Days of the Week Defined (to replace files on linux webserver)

  • - modified to print each day of the week as opposed to Today, Tomorrow, etc
  • weather-script-preprocess.svg - modified to shift the current day's
