weewx-wd / Quick Start


Note: This guide covers the installation of weewx-WD v1.0.3 using the weewx wee_extension utility. If you are upgrading an earlier weewx-WD version DO NOT FOLLOW THIS GUIDE but rather use the weewx-WD Upgrade Guide.

Note: In the following code snippets the symbolic name $DOWNLOAD_ROOT must be replaced with the path to the downloaded weewx-WD extension.

Quick Start Guide

  1. Download the weewx-WD extension from the weewx-WD Bitbucket downloads site into a directory accessible from the weewx machine.

    $ wget -P $DOWNLOAD_ROOT
  2. Stop weewx:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/weewx stop


    $ sudo service weewx stop
  3. Install the weewx-WD extension downloaded at step 1 using the wee_extension utility:

    $ wee_extension --install=$DOWNLOAD_ROOT/weewxwd-1.0.3.tar.gz

    This will result in output similar to the following:

    Request to install '/var/tmp/weewxwd-1.0.3.tar.gz'
    Extracting from tar archive /var/tmp/weewxwd-1.0.3.tar.gz
    Saving installer file to /home/weewx/bin/user/installer/weewx-WD
    Saved configuration dictionary. Backup copy at /home/weewx/weewx.conf.20161027130000
    Finished installing extension '/var/tmp/weewxwd-1.0.3.tar.gz'
  4. Start weewx:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/weewx start


    $ sudo service weewx start
