Space weather gadget I made and am releasing here first. v1.3 released.
Update: Version 1.3 is completed. Fixed issue with double digit months not creating video link correctly.

Video is changed to new one.


I made a thread concerning this while I was working on it. I'll rehash a bit here.

This is a Windows sidebar gadget for monitoring space weather conditions. It obtains the latest images and data from SOHO, NOAA, NASA and NICT. I'd like to release it here first.

I've worked this out on both my XP (which used a sidebar "hacked" from Vista) and Win7 rigs. So, I doubt there's going to be many issues. (Most will likely be PEBKAC errors.)

I'm sure there will be at least a handful of people here that will be interested in this. Not to mention, beta testers are ALWAYS welcome in any development.

The gadget can be downloaded here: [link to www.wiki-juice.info]

If you have XP and don't have the sidebar, not to worry. You can download it here: [link to joshoon.deviantart.com] (The install will ask for a product key. You don't need one, though. Just skip it.)

Please post any comments, suggestion, questions and *especially* any issues you run into.

Thanks. :)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 982026


Those versions are barely workable in comparison. I'd recommend getting this one instead.

There is no sizing option because the images being pulled are 256x256. The size used in the gadget. Well, the NICT video is HUGE. Not to mention, it's kinda breaking a cardinal rule of gadget development to exceed 400 pixels in a flyout. I'm just under that as this is.

Since you're interested in that option, though. It probably wouldn't be too difficult to either make the images clickable to take you to the 512x512 ones.

Yeah, that sounds quite doable. Expect that in the next release. (You can look at the file date in the download directory and determine if it's a newer version.)

As for now, I need a break. My OS died Thursday. So, in addition to this lil project I've been downloading, installing, tweaking and customizing.

Yeah ... been a busy week.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 973338


Is there an image of the magnetosphere movie showing or the background image? If there's an image of the movie, it is indeed buffering.

Do you have a network monitor running so you can see if you're pulling it down?

Depending on how slow NICT is running, it can take a minute to load. That's why I embedded the "after image pops up, allow video to buffer" image.

The video is somewhere around 20 megs. I noticed on my XP rig, it doesn't start playing until the video is fully loaded. But on Win7, it starts playing while it's downloading.

The upside for the XP user that has to wait is it saves the video in the cache and you don't have to download it again until midnight UTC. Win7, on the other hand, doesn't cache it so you have to download it after just a few minutes.

 Quoting: pauldamo 974803


Yes, that's normal. The solar pressure image updates every 10 minutes. Full Sun is actually where I got the idea to start on this project. Originally, I was planning on having the main gadget change to whatever you clicked on last, similar to Full Sun. However, on Win7 it doesn't cache the images like it does in XP. So, it was downloading almost constantly. Had to change that so it doesn't hammer SOHO's server.


also when i click the options the heading is 'Soho still'below it is 'Soho live' which doesn't change anything when i click it, is it supposed to change to the movie mode.
 Quoting: pauldamo 974803



Ugh, thanks for catching that. I used the about page from my "SOHO - Still" gadget (extreme beta) and missed changing that text. I have corrected the issue.

No, I don't have full motion in the main gadget for the reasons I stated above. I doubt I will be adding in a feature like that (unless I can figure out how to get around this caching issue.)

Thanks for the input.

To all:

Your comments help me come up with new ideas.

Your comments lead to better design.

Your comments drive me to produce better work.

In other words, please leave comments. :)

I suspect the short answer is "no".

The Windows Sidebar is a part of Windows 7, Windows Vista and can be downloaded for XP thanks to some folks that have extracted it from Vista and ported it to XP.

I'm not familiar with *nix, Mac or any other OS environments. I guess it all depends on the emulator you're running. But I still suspect that there's no sidebar in emulators.

Sorry.

There is the possibility that if you emulate windows you can install the sidebar and utilize it.

I considered adding images from SDO. However, that brought up two issues. I'm within 85 pixels of the "rule of making gadgets" size of 400 pixels for the flyout.

There are 12 images from SDO and not a one of them is animated.

Ironically, I'm still considering ways to get them in there. But with the space constrictions I'm afraid I'm not coming up with any ideas to pull it off.

Re: Space weather gadget I made and am releasing here first. v1.3 released.
Awoke this morning to find the gadget was "broken".

Seems my method of forcing an image refresh was filling up the server side cache of the host.

Recoded it to use a better, more elegant method of refreshing the images without "busting the cache".

Please download the gadget again if your's is "broken" now as well.

Thanks. :)

Well, another update has been applied.

It seems the method I was using to determine "yesterday's date" returned a date of "0" since it turned the 1st today.

I implemented another method in javascript to execute this function.

I changed the date on my system to also double check if this resolved a potential issue when December arrives. (Javascript determines January as 0, hence I had the month +1 to obtain the proper month. Hence, December would have returned a month of 13.) This new method corrected that potential issue as well.

If you have a copy of this gadget, please download the newer version.

Lastly, I am working on adding in some new functions and could use some input.

I want to add in where when you click on the flyout image, it will open a web page showing a larger view. Which would be more preferred: a 512x512 animated gif of the same image being shown in 256x256 or to the HUGE still live image of the sun?
