Realtime Weather OLED
Received my OLED in the post last week and started writing a script to get it working. Managed to build a weather app using Python and shellscript.
It currently updates every 1hr, but will be extending it to also update upon button press. Next step is to add it to a boot script so it auto starts on boot. Using the USB only as extra storage so not part of the actual application.
Wish that you could use oled-exp scroll left on particular rows
@Chris-Johnson Awesome project!!
So the OLED Expansion actually can scroll on particular rows, but that functionality isn't exposed in the
oled-expcommand line application.
You would have to use the OLED C Library or the OLED Python Module to create a C or Python program respectively. In the scrolling functions, take a close look at the
stopPagearguments, you can use them to define which rows will be scrolled.
Just note that it will scroll text that's on the display in a loop, meaning that you can't have any 'off-screen' text. (This is a limitation of the display hardware)
But I would still recommend experimenting!
@Lazar-Demin Ah brilliant, means i can accept longer weather descriptions Will have a look.
Any chance of open sourcing the script for this?

Wow great! yeah i would love for this to be open source +1.
One more vote to have it open source

yeah, i third it. in fact it is the first time i have read a report that has no reference to the project source itself.
