Getting open weather map current observation in Cayenne

I would like to use current weather from open weather map in my Cayenne project. Is there a way to achive this?

Thank you!

Welcome to Cayenne!

Unfortunately that is not yet possible. Text widgets are coming soon though, and when they are added it would be pretty simple to use a python script to do this.

Thank you @adam for your help. I’m gonna stick with my plan B and use an esp8266 to get it and parse the json. Then, I will get it into Cayenne using a virtual pins (one for temp and one for humidity).

I didn’t even think of that. If all you are after is the numerical values then yes, definitely possible how you described. Please share your project when it’s done!

Yes, for sure!

I’m working on an HVAC controlling system based on 3 esp-8266, 2 DHT22 sensor and a dual solid state relay board. For now, my worst problem is the heat generated by the esp8266 that interfere with the sensor reading in a small enclosure… I’m like 13c over the room temperature with my actual reading!

Again, thank you for your help and keep up the good work on Cayenne!
