Hi!

Here is my first Konfabulator Widget. After seeing a preview of Tiger (particularly Dashboard), reading about a alternative for Windows (Konfabulator) and seeing the great work of Saladin and Ghostwalker, I decided to make my own contribution. So here it is, the konfab clone of the weather widget.

Download Link:Dashboard Weather v2.3

Please let me know if there are any bugs.

Thanks and have fun with this widget.

WOW! this is the best mac port of a widget on konfabulator I've ever seen! thanks!

you HAVE to translate all the widgets. hahaha you're my new hero now. come onnn. do it for me hehe :)

one thing i have to ask though, can you please include all the fonts needed for download? i know you specify them, but it's not working for me, so you must have different versions. thanks!

One other thing, is it possible to have more information displayed when hovering over a certain date? kind of like how you see with the original konfabulator weather widget?

In case all of you missed this post from the mods:

1. Do not harrass developers (ie questions like "how is this going?", "can i have a monkey widget next?", et cetera) If your post does not contribute (bug report, resources, answering the quesitons of a dev) dont post it.

2. Keep your dramas and whining outside of the damn forums - I am not your mommy i will not take your uneducated crap; you flame, youre suspended.

3. Want to thank a developer? DONT POST ABOUT IT - USE THE THANK YOU BUTTON IN THE FIRST POST!!!!

Yes, you are thanking one guy, true. In this case devs will have to feel thanked as a group for the sake of clarity and order.

and Since the kind developer of this fine widget only said:

" Please let me know if there are any bugs or the widget doesn't react like the original."

I think it is safe to say your 'requests' are uncalled for at this time.

Other than that, I wil say that the recent fix worked for me, however the Ludica Font you posted is quite old. You may want to consider a new one, maybe from the Soulless selection.

Hi, cheers on the lovely widget... just a small bug report to get in on the action :)

Please see the attached screenshot.

edit: oh, and there is a slight animation stutter, (a momentary pause part way through the "roll-up" & sometimes the "dropdown") of the extended view that happens a significant %-age of the time.

first of all, thanks for your posts.

- i will add the shadow this evening (thanks @cleanup)

- also there was a little bug with the grid, is fixed an comes with the next release.

- about the spawning, i'll try it

- @duckie: can you tell me where to find the new one, would be easy to take that one instead in the next release

- more infos in the tooltip comes tomorrow

- @ariesting: about the background color, should be purple only after sunset/bevor sunrise, and your are right, the xml had problems with time like "0:09", fixed it. it's in the next release (tonight)

@firecracker6: the reported bug (screenshot) in the textbox is because I used the specified fonts (see first post)

maybe I will change them to newer ones if I get them. the second (the cut off degree) is fixed. thanks for posting it.

please can you describe the slight animation stutter because I don't recognize it myself.
