Pulling data from wunderground api into cr6

Sublyime Oct 18, 2021 03:31 AM

I was bored and wrote the is horrible ugly program to do it, 98% compete and working... looking to beautify it.. any pointers?  I removed my api key but feel free to use your own station ID and key to test .. lemme know what you think .. I have thick skin. Lol

Public PTemp As Float

Public acurite_api As String * 500
Public country As String * 10 'Country Code
Public epoch As Float 'Time in UNIX seconds
Public humidity As Float 'The relative humidity of the air.
Public lat As Float 'Latitude of PWS
Public lon As Float 'Longitude of PWS
Public neighborhood As String * 24 'Neighborhood associated with the PWS location
Public obsTimeLocal As String * 24 'Time observation is valid in local apparent time by timezone - tz
Public obsTimeUtc As String * 24 'GMT(UTC) time
Public qcStatus As Float 'Quality control indicator:
'-1: No quality control check performed
' 0: This observation was marked As possibly incorrect by our quality control algorithm

Public realtimeFrequency As Float 'Frequency of data report updates in minutes
Public softwareType As String * 24 'Software type of the PWS
Public solarRadiation As Float 'Solar Radiation
Public stationID As String * 24 'ID as registered by wunderground.com
Public uv As Float 'UV reading of the intensity of solar radiation
Public winddir As Float 'Wind Direction
Public imperial As String * 24 'Object containing fields that use a defined unit of measure. The object label is dependent on the units parameter assigned in the request.
'"imperial", "metric", "metric_si", "uk_hybrid"  see API docs
Public metric As String * 24 ' see imperial notes above
Public metric_si As String * 24 ' see imperial notes above
Public uk_hybrid As String * 24 ' see imperial notes above
Public dewpt As Float 'The temperature which air must be cooled at constant pressure to reach saturation. The Dew Point is also an indirect measure of the humidity of the air. The Dew Point will never exceed the Temperature. When the Dew Point and Temperature are equal, clouds or fog will typically form. The closer the values of Temperature and Dew Point, the higher the relative humidity.
Public elev As Float 'Elevation
Public heatIndex As Float 'Heat Index - An apparent temperature. It represents what the air temperature “feels like” on exposed human skin due to the combined effect of warm temperatures and high humidity.
'When the temperature is 70°F or higher, the Feels Like value represents the computed Heat Index.
Public precipRate As Float 'Rate of precipitation - instantaneous precipitation rate.  How much rain would fall if the precipitation intensity did not change for one hour
Public precipTotal As Float 'Accumulated precipitation for today from midnight to present.
Public pressure As Long 'Mean Sea Level Pressure, the equivalent pressure reading at sea level recorded at this station
Public temp As Float 'Temperature in defined unit of measure.
Public windChill As Float 'Wind Chill - An apparent temperature. It represents what the air temperature “feels like” on exposed human skin due to the combined effect of the cold temperatures and wind speed.
'When the temperature is 61°F or lower the Feels Like value represents the computed Wind Chill so display the Wind Chill value.
Public windGust As Float 'Wind Gust - sudden and temporary variations of the average Wind Speed. The report always shows the maximum wind gust speed recorded during the observation period. It is a required display field if Wind Speed is shown.
Public windSpeed As Float 'Wind Speed - The wind is treated as a vector; hence, winds must have direction and magnitude (speed). The wind information reported in the hourly current conditions corresponds to a 10-minute average called the sustained wind speed. Sudden or brief variations in the wind speed are known as “wind gusts” and are reported in a separate data field.
'Wind directions are always expressed as ""from whence the wind blows"" meaning that a North wind blows from North to South. If you face North in a North wind the wind is at your face. Face southward and the North wind is at your back.

Your program looks nice. Try tested, it doesn't work for me. Error come outs as api = "Http comms Error". All parameters got NAN. The code works on web brawser. Here it is

{"observations":[{"stationID":"IJOHORBA4","obsTimeUtc":"2021-12-01T11:10:39Z","obsTimeLocal":"2021-12-01 19:10:39","neighborhood":"AME Senai Airport City","softwareType":null,"country":"MY","solarRadiation":null,"lon":103.680107,"realtimeFrequency":null,"epoch":1638357039,"lat":1.59889,"uv":null,"winddir":157,"humidity":70,"qcStatus":-1,"imperial":{"temp":89,"heatIndex":103,"dewpt":78,"windChill":89,"windSpeed":5,"windGust":null,"pressure":29.66,"precipRate":null,"precipTotal":0.00,"elev":131}}]}

Do I need to do something with the datalogger communication settings?
