MeteoIODoc 20240411.d3bdb3cb

Format

This plugin reads meteorological data from DBO via the RESTful web service. To compile the plugin you need to have the CURL library with its headers present.

Warning
This plugin is for SLF's internal use only!

You can have a look at the stations that are available through this web service on this map. Please keep in mind that some stations might be overlaid on top of each other and will require you to zoom in quite a lot in order to differentiate them!

Keywords

This plugin uses the following keywords:

  • DBO_URL: The URL of the RESTful web service (default: https://pgdata.int.slf.ch)
  • DBO_PROXY: The URL of a SOCKS5 proxy for the connection to go through (optional, specified as {host}:{port} such as localhost:8080, see this for more)
  • STATION#: station code for the given station, prefixed by the network it belongs ot (for example: IMIS::SLF2, by default the network is assumed to be IMIS)
  • DBO_TIMEOUT: timeout (in seconds) for the connection to the server (default: 60s)
  • DBO_DEBUG: print the full requests/answers from the server when something does not work as expected (default: false)
METEO = DBO
