Thread: Weather Radar Lockscreen

  1. #1
    Default Weather Radar Lockscreen
    Is there any apps/themes with a weather radar on the lockscreen. I have an iPhone 4S and tried to install wedaPanel, but it wont work. Id like to have intellicastHD on there!

    Hi, this works but needs some editing with iFile.
    Install Places Cydget and make sure it is ticked in Settings Cydget.
    Edit index.html at
    /System/Library/LockCydgets/Places.Cydget/
    Find and edit
    imageElem.src = imageSrc + imageIndexStr + '_small.jpg';
    To
    imageElem.src = imageSrc;
    Then find
    var imageSrc = 'http://www.etravelreviews.com/gadget_images/travel';

    and change the website in quotes to your own location radar image
    Eg UK
    http://www.meteox.com/images.aspx?ja...id=20126262254
    Eg Florida
    http://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/NCR/AMX_loop.gif

    If you have Safari Download Enabler installed, you can press the animated radar image and click on download image to get the required address.
    The websites used were
    Europe
    Meteo Weather Meteox.co.uk - Weather - European rainfall radar - Forecast
    and USA
    National Weather Service radar from Miami, FL

    You can install a second weather radar Cydget by renaming
    Places.Cydget to say Radar.Cydget and if you then edit it's info.plist and change the two occurrences of Places to Radar and then reinstall Places Cydget and start again.
    Other Cydgets I have are
    CyDialer
    LockLight
    SwirlyClock (comes as part of SwirlyScreen Cydget which doesn't work on iOS5) SwirlyClock works with a bit of iFile editing

    Hey try a Webcam on your lockscreen, this works with cgi and mjpeg webcams!
    Try this site
    Showing All Webcams - mjpeg.net Live Webcam Directory and Webcam Search Engine
    Search, select and scroll down to a webcam, hold your finger on the image and then copy and paste into index.html as before.

    Your the man. Do you know of any other websites that would work for the radar? Also could you link another app to do this?

    The USA radar links are
    National Weather Service Doppler Radar Images
    Will post more if I find any. What country/area?
    I think I was lucky to get Places.Cydget to work, not seen any other apps doing this on the lockscreen.
    When I have time I might edit the code so the buttons work to switch images

    Make sure the animation is playing first before you copy the map image

    Ok, here are some patches to make the buttons work, there are 13 views of Florida you can toggle through and one of Europe.
    First install Places Cydget and make sure it is ticked in Settings Cydget.
    Then edit index.html which is at
    /System/Library/LockCydgets/Places.Cydget/


    Then find and edit/add this code

    Add the two var lines after

    return parseInt(indexStr, 10);
    }

    var number = 1;
    var websites = 14;



    Add the last 4 lines

    getCurrImageIndex();
    if (currIndex > 0)
    currIndex--;
    else
    currIndex = max;

    if (number > 1)
    number--;
    else
    number = websites;

    Add the last 4 lines

    getCurrImageIndex();
    if (currIndex < max)
    currIndex++;
    else
    currIndex = 0;

    if (number < websites)
    number++;
    else
    number = 1;


    Replace


    var imageSrc = 'http://www.etravelreviews.com/gadget_images/travel';


    with

    var imageSrc1 = 'http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/SatelliteLoop/hicbsat_None_anim.gif';

    var imageSrc2 = 'http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/SurfaceAnalysisLoop/r12_None_anim.gif';

    var imageSrc3 = 'http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/RadarLoop/pie_None_anim.gif';

    var imageSrc4 = 'http://www.srh.noaa.gov/images/fxc/tbw/graphicast/image_full1.gif';

    var imageSrc5 = 'http://www.srh.noaa.gov/images/fxc/jax/graphicast/image7.jpg';

    var imageSrc6 = 'http://www.srh.noaa.gov/images/fxc/mfl/graphicast/image4.gif';

    var imageSrc7 = 'http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/CurrentTemps/mco.jpg';

    var imageSrc8 = 'http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/CurrentWinds/mco.jpg';

    var imageSrc9 = 'http://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/N1P/TLH_loop.gif';

    var imageSrc10 = 'http://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/N1P/JAX_loop.gif';

    var imageSrc11 = 'http://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/N1P/MLB_loop.gif';

    var imageSrc12 = 'http://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/N1P/AMX_loop.gif';

    var imageSrc13 = 'http://72.236.138.36/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi';

    var imageSrc14 = 'http://www.meteox.com/images.aspx?jaar=-3&voor=&soort=loop3uur&c=&n=&tijdid=20126262254' ;


    Then replace


    imageElem.src = imageSrc + imageIndexStr + '_small.jpg';

    with


    if (number==1)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc1;
    else
    if (number==2)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc2;
    else
    if (number==3)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc3;
    else
    if (number==4)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc4;
    else
    if (number==5)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc5;
    else
    if (number==6)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc6;
    else
    if (number==7)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc7;
    else
    if (number==8)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc8;
    else
    if (number==9)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc9;
    else
    if (number==10)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc10;
    else
    if (number==11)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc11;
    else
    if (number==12)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc12;
    else
    if (number==13)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc13;
    else
    if (number==14)
    imageElem.src = imageSrc14;


    Now if you only want say the first 5 web views, change

    var websites = 14;

    to

    var websites = 5;

    You can edit any http address inside the quotes ' ' to your own ones.
    I used the AppStore App Espresso Html to edit and preview this index.html code.
    I also use LockScreen Dim Delay to keep the view on for longer
