I rather prefer to find some other weather service which can give actual temperature per location. Question is:will these be better than Buienradar as no other weather service has weather stations in every city.

Buienradar uses the KNMI network as far as I know. And is part of a larger network (The World Meteorological Organization (WMO)). I guess all those weather apps uses data from this network.

Re: Toon app: Buienradar adjust color Raintile

Postby Joskep » Sun Jun 07, 2020 10:34 am

An question about the RainTile in dimmode:

If i would like to adjust the color of the 'rain-graphic' (if rain is expected), which part in the QML i have to adjust?
Normally i see an colocode in hex, but i don't see anay hex color now related to that graphic.
(Now its purple and i would like to test it in another colors).

Thanks

Hey,

Is it also possible to add horizontal lines every 2mm?
So you can see from a distance if a large peak is just 4mm of Rain or 12mm.

Thanks,
Jos

The city of Rotterdam has a project going on having a rainradar installed on the Delftse Poort building (Rotterdam regenradar). It is way more accurate than the KNMI C-band radar but it has a limited range. They're testing and tweaking the system, but an app will be released for AppStore (iOs) and the Playstore (Android). I don't know if they'll release an API.

Hi all,

version 8.5.6 is available in the ToonStore.
Changelog:
- the rain prediction graph was showing in purple in dim state instead of grey

Kind regards,

Sure, you can change the color in line 72 in /qmf/qml/apps/buienradar/BuienradarRegenTile.qml

Probably better to make a new app for this as it only applies to one city. I would like to keep the buienradar app generic for the whole country.
But interesting development......

I forgot to attach the hyperlink of the Rotterdam Regenradar website, I edited the original post. But here is a picture of the range and accuracy, as you can see its range encompasses the Rijnmond area. The KNMI images have a resolution of 1x1 km, the Rotterdan regenradar of 100x100 m.

In dim state the left axis is still purple.
I do prefer the purple graph in normal state instead of dark gray...

I have not updated my Toon (4.10.6) or the Buienradar app (8.3.3) in a very very long time.
And now discovered that Buienradar stopped updating on 21-Jul-2020 at 13:00.

Is this expected?
