You misunderstood the point of my post. I applauded the theme and just wanted to understand what is so appealing about an interactive lockscreen. There are a number of weather apps that have plenty of eye candy and tons of features and they are two taps (or a slide and tap) away from the lockscreen. What I meant by one-trick is that this theme just deals with weather in a single location. Additional info requires lots of taps, yet no additional locations. There is no room for other widgets. So I'm not criticizing the looks or the function or the technical execution of your theme. As I said, this is great work. What I'm asking is whether this is something that makes sense for the lockscreen. That's all.

What I'm calling the wĕda engine is the data access, scheduling and data binding logic. It's not a theme in itself and contains no UI logic. It's purpose is to drive themes, and it's fairly well documented in the wĕda skinning guide. As you noticed, it relies on jQuery to conduct the data binding (through class names).
It contains plug-and-play weather source modules, currently supporting access from yahoo (weather.com) and apple (accuweather). In the future, it may support additional sources, such as weatherunderground.

You must be working in marketing. I use the "gruppled engine" for my lockscreen

Okay, this is not a nice thing to say and it certainly is not correct. Limited data is by design and anyone is free to expand on it. In case you want to see how more info can be placed in gruppled, see this:
No need to tap and a wealth of additional data. On top of that, you can swipe the view left or right and access as many weather locations as you want. Sure no radar, but pretty much anything you might want to see at a quick glance.
Refreshing is not inconsistent at all and you can refresh any time you want manually. I don't know what you mean by fragile binding to the page. Everything just works on that page. While I think it's cool that you develop nice themes, there is no need to trash other people's work. I certainly have not done that with your work. I think Gruppler did a fabulous job!!!
So to be more constructive. How about adding more weather locations to your engine?

I was trying to distinquish between the theme and the weather data script. Two different things. Gruppled is a great theme. I've used it. But Gruppler didn't write weather.js. He may have modified it some (for the better), but for the most part it's cloned. I was in no way trashing it.

I also have my phone synced with my work exchange server which enforces a security policy that locks the screen with a password. So the more info I have on the lockscreen the better for me. I pull the phone out, give it a glance and I can get all the info I need.
My 2c is Apple missed the boat by not putting more info on the lockscreen.

If there's any way you could pull data from the calendar app and incorporate it into one of the panels, this would be absolutely killer.

So this is how things work with these kinds of tweaks:
1. WinterBoard handles the HTML overlays for any html-based themes
3. Gruppled/Matte UI/Aqwoah are HTML/JS/CSS-based themes that use a combination of external info sources such as weather/RSS or the LI plugin info or just plain simple JS code to render HTML calendars. So these themes require both WB and LI
4. LI additionally now has a native render mode, which is independent of WB and does not require its HTML capabilities, but it lacks a number plugins that are currently HTML/JS only and this cannot be mixed.
5. wedaPanel is a very limited HTML/JS/CSS theme that requires WB to display its HTML. In its present form it has no access to LI plugins and is therefore limited to weather (or any other external html/xml source) or plain JS. In principle it could be expanded, but it would still rely on WB and LI like the other Lockinfo themes.

At least the Weda is free, and not have to pay anything.

But you can do the same with any of LockInfo themes if you are willing to disable access to iPhone internals. The weather theme will work just like the weda. And if you request the info from mail/calendar in weda, you will still have to pay for LI, unless weda duplicates the LI functionality and makes that available for free. No free lunch I'm afraid.

Update: Fixed minor bug where the current moon phase was indicating "crescent" instead of "gibbous".

Are you now providing a structured JS file or the user-unfriendly linearized version? Please consider doing this if you want users to be able able to more easily modify it.
