Weather Widget

A steampunk weather desktop widget that displays local air pressure, temperature and humidity, as well as the general weather outlook in hundreds of cities around the world.

Thermionic Widget

Thermionic valves were created in the 1870s and started to find practical application by the early 1900s, it is not too much of a stretch of the imagination to see them in use on Victorian widgetry.

Weird Clock

This is an old-fashioned wood, glass, steel and brass Yahoo Widget designed to appeal to the steampunk mind, I suggest it might be a useful addition to your desktop. Keeps good time!

Under Widget

The Steampunk Underwidget is a 24hr clock that sits on your steampunk desktop looking as if it is part of that desktop. The underwidget is designed to work with the Steampunk Timekeeper Orrery MkII that has a transparent glass middle section.

CPU/GPU Thermometers

This is the Steampunk temperature gauge that monitors your computer's cpu and gpu temperatures, providing alarms and access to utilities that monitor your computers cpu usage and memory. This is a Yahoo widget.

Version 2.0 of the Steampunk Weather Widget is released PDF Print
(1 vote)

In the latest Steampunk Weather Widget, version 2.0.0 the following changes have been made: main features are full Romanian(!) translation (as an example) the ability to add ICAO metar codes manually so if you know your own ICAO location just type in the code. You can increase the size of the widget, lots of bugs fixed, reskinned the location selection box, added many new graphical elements, reduced the overhead of running the widget, improved the code in general and documented it with full online help.


Newest version,

To view the widget in operation

The widget in operation

This Widget will install and run on Windows XP/Win7/Win8 and 10 and also Mac OS/X prior to El Kapitan. Download Yahoo widgets and install it. You must have Yahoo widgets installed in order to run the widget as that is how the widget has been designed (all programs require a runtime engine and Yahoo widgets is the runtime engine that allows these javascrript widgets to be displayed on your desktop).

Simply download and install the Yahoo widget engine here, run it.

When this is done, download the widget. Your computer will know what to do with the widget and it will install automatically.

yahoo-widgets-logo.pngYou will  need Yahoo widgets for this widget to run. Get Yahoo widgets here.  

 This widget is written in Javascript and XML, two web technologies, which are used by the Yahoo widget runtime engine to display on your desktop. There are other engines but this widget is capable of running under the Yahoo widget engine only.

Widget Startup

When the weather widget starts it will search via the internet for the default feed selected. If found, the Widget will display the weather information. The default location is London Heathrow. There may be a wait for 15-30 seconds whilst the widget first pulls in the weather feed. Note: if you do not have an internet connection the weather widget cannot obtain weather information.

Instructions for use

The weather indicators and controls of your widget are as shown above. The widget has a number of graphical controls. You can identify the function of each working component by hovering the mouse over each. A pop-up will show giving you a description.

Choosing the Metar data location

When you select to change your location a pop-up will appear giving you the option to type your location. Choose a location near to you that will be providing METAR weather data. For example in the South Coast of the UK you might choose Gatwick Airport. If you choose a local airport or aerodrome you are most likely to find a METAR weather feed.  If you know your nearest ICAO code then flick the location/ICAO switch to allow you to enter the four-letter code manually.

Once you are done click the SET switch or the magnifying glass, it will search for the icao code and if found return the possible locations. If you use a common location name then it is quite likely that a number of possible locations will be returned.
