WsWin, lua-script to create ws_merge.csv

Post by Toulon7559 » Thursday 13 September 2018 20:35

The weather software WsWin reads the data from a connected, compatible Personal Weather Station and processes that data for it's database and graphics, and (if desired) for uploads for other applications.

All very nice if your PWS has a balanced & complete set of sensors.
Unfortunately my PWS of type TFA_Nexus has a console-barometer which is 'less-than-excellent' and it misses a sensor for UVI.
The program WsWin has a functionality to look for an additional csv-file with supplementary data:
that supplementary data is then a replacement and/or addition for the data coming (or not) from TFA_Nexus.
Requires the creation of a file ws_merge.csv

The lua-script further down in this message performs that creation based on 'better' data available in Domoticz.
With this script-version the result is a file ws_merge.csv in directory /home/pi for inclusion of Barometric Pressure and UVI.
As indicated at the end of the script, YOU need to organise the required sync/upload to the location of the WsWin main directory.
Also YOU need to adjust the settings in WsWin to activate the link from WsWin to this file ws_merge.csv
Required actions to adjust those settings:
- Switch off 'File/Recording'
- at 'Weatherstation/Filewatching' set a mark for ws_merge.csv
- at 'Weatherstation/Available Sensors' also mark UVI
- if desired, at 'Internet/Sensors' mark UVI
- don't forget to switch on 'File/Recording'!

This lua-script may be applicable for other combinations than WsWin and TFA_Nexus, but generally bear in mind, that with the mechanism of ws_merge.csv you can only overwrite the sensors as listed in WsWin under tab 'Weatherstation/ AvailableSensors'
