Ladybug Rainfall component


#1

Hi all,

I am trying to use the ladybug Rainfall component from this forum Rainfall Data Component, but there is some error. I think there might be an issue with the website sourcing the data. Possibly after a website update, the instructions needed to obtain the data are different and credentials appear necessary to retrieve data. This may require further coding to update the component (2017).
Does anybody have some advice or any idea how can I proceed?

Thank you!
Amanda

Hi Amanda,

I did assemble that component some time ago - however, the stability of the data source is not very reliable and it is often down. I´m not sure whether the server itself will be fixed or not but I think that one of the ambitions for Dragonfly was regarding rainfall data.

I can´t really say if there is an alternative solution by now, unless the server becomes more stable.

Hi Rafael,

Thank you for the quick answer!

Unfortunately, I think this function will only be available in Dragonfly for further releases.

Do you have any idea of a possible alternative solution?

Thank you again for the help!

Hi Amanda,

Running a quick check through the forum I´ve found some more info here and here.

Hope it helps!
