    The Widget Weather Team is proud to present WIDGET WEATHER


    This is a tweak that allows weather widgets to use information sent/received from the actual weather app on the iPhone.

    Being able to use the weather app from the phone to get information for widgets seemed a very good idea after Subywrex originally figured out how to use the libweather.plist a ways back to get information for widgets (Native Weather)
    Unfortunately at the time we had no way to get the information from apples encrypted plist.

    Widget Weather changes all of that

    King_O_Hill and I had asked a developer (unknowingly at the same time lol) if there was a way to be able to read the information from the weather app on the phone as well as get it to update on its own. In a Barney Stinson fashion we had a reply "Challenge Accepted!"

    Not only can the tweak get the information that is being sent to and from yahoo from the weather app, its able to tell it when to send as well as how to request more information. The tweak is able to convert the reported C temp to F as well.

    Tweak Options and Settings as of version 1.5-41. Useful for Troubleshooting and Conflicts
    Link to PDF Document **Please Read


    As you can see the weather can be set to different options for updating in the background (weather app doesn't do this on its own so the tweak takes over and forces the update at the set interval and also based on your Location setting)

    Distance Filter Options explained a little further
    gps distance filter - The minimum distance (measured in meters) a device must move laterally before an update event is generated. That means, based on previous location event, another location update will only be received after exceeding distanceFilter value distance.

    gps desired accuracy - Refers to how accurate your location data should be. For example if you wish to see the exact street you're on you a high accuracy value for this parameter. If you only wish to see the approximate area (such as in which neighbourhood you're in) you'd set a lower accuracy value for this param.

    The defaults are set at filter: 50m (when movement greather than 50m has been detected it would send the gps coords to the yahoo web service to determine the near woeid, if this changed from the current location it should request an update for the weather for the new woeid at this point.) and accuracy: 1000m

    What the tweak does is create a XML file in the Documents folder. Widgets are then written to read the XML file and you can then style and do whatever you want to them just like any other weather widget.

    A big thanks to these guys for testing so far as well as offering valuable input, scripting and options

    Now some widgets. Here's a video of an iOS7 weather app inspired lockscreen. This was something I started and had as a static weather widget and of course if you want animated weather you go to the best, Dacal
    He stepped in and just added his animated weather and a few other options like picture weather walls or solid color ones (iOS7 weather app images thanks to King_O_Hill) based on condition. The widget can also be used as a static weather widget with no animation. Tap top of screen for additional info and also scroll the hourly forecast back and forth. Widgets also support language translation for the 10 languages done so far.

    Heres a quick video of a lockscreen Dacal put together which is awesome. Also shows a few of the tweak settings in action.

    Finally, without the amazing support and talent of the developer, sddev, none of this would be possible. We cannot thank him enough for taking on this project and knocking it out of the park. Far exceeded expectations.

    Developer: Stephen Delisle aka sddev (might know him from another tweak called iWidget Tapper)

    As mentioned a lot of work went into this tweak, any donation made will be appreciated. This is strictly for the work on the tweak itself and we encourage you to make a contribution for his time if you can

    Version 1.5-26 UPDATED as of Sept 23 2013 12:00pm PST

    If the tweak is not working for you after Cydia install try the following [B]

    1. Go to Settings/Privacy/Location Services and ensure you have Weather toggled on.
    2. In not turn it on, set tweak settings to Constant for Location Update, then Full Reboot.
    *You can check if the tweak worked correctly by going to var/mobile/Documents/ and look for this -> widgetweather.xml <- that file should be there. If not, respring or reboot and check again.
    3. If still not there, check your Documents folder permissions.
    Set them like this

    4. Once its there, set your lockscreen in Groovy Lock or whatever Lock theming platform you are using and respring as per normal.

    Base Lockscreen Packaged With Tweak (As of Feb 2014 the base lock installs with Groovy Lock)
    In Groovy Lock youll find 01_WidgetWeather_Base

    Pic below of the base widget with all Info the tweak can provide. There is a setting in the Config.js to use an alternate city should your main one not show correctly. There are also a few other options in the Config
    (This is meant as a base to mod a widget from although you can use it as a lockscreen if you like)

    A lockscreen by (me) Durben (as always thanks to Dacal for a lot of the solid work)
    As seen in the video above and pictured here with some brief options explained.

    Dacal Widget Weather Yahoo (look-a-like): http://www.mediafire.com/download/n2...ahoo.theme.rar

    A lockscreen made by Dacal that closely mimics the Yahoo Weather App
    Features three touch options. One to bring up extra information, one to slide the hourly forecast back and forth, and one to slide up/down the Daily forecast/Additional weather info.
    This lockscreen is absolutely amazing. See video above (although some things have changed since that video)

    Heres a pic.

    Make sure to check out all the options in the Config.js for both Durben's and Dacal's lockscreens

    "Ok guys here's my mod of the Widget Weather, want to thank Dacal, Durben, and Chevy for all they do! Thanks King and Durben for letting me help test this awesome tweak! This LS has three touch functions, animated Weather with a touch up top and all your info on a second touch in the middle and also a third touch on bottom for a slide show witch you can change pics if you want in the SS folder. It's i4 and i5 ready. Hope you all enjoy this as much as I do!

    So far this tweak is iOS 6.x to 7.0.4 compatible. Only tested on the iPhone 4 4S 5 5S and briefly on iPad 3rd Gen
    (*iPad support is a possibility that has been discussed, as there is no weather app on iPad this is a little more tricky, maybe a possibility to enable the tweak or a similar version of it on iPads that have Siri as the basic functions for getting weather information are built into that)

    iOS6 Only -> This tweak will not work on an iPhone that still needs the weather app fix from Cydia installed in order to open their weather app. This was an early jailbreaking issue on iOS 6 if you remember but was fixed in future releases of evasi0n.
    Users with this issue as of now, we cannot get the tweak to work properly on your device. This is related to having app sync installed that breaks the weather app. You can try to uninstall app sync and the weather fix and then install the tweak but still may not work

    "Can we use any widget with this tweak?" The simple answer is no. Weather widgets not written to read the XML file with the weather info in it will not work with this tweak. They can however be rewritten and styled based off using the scripts from this tweak.

    Some Q and A

    hay guys what is the name for bundle in preferences for WW and icon,please?

    WeatherIcon.png 29x29px
    [email protected] 58x58px

    You must have an info.plist file in:



    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">

    Please endeavor to not quote the first post in replies. Information will be added to it, as well, it just clogs up the thread.

    Marty /Dacal

    Hi everyone,

    Here is an update to the Marty-Dacal mod. Again, special thanks to Dacal for this work of art! Here is the original post so you can see all of the differences between this one and Dacal's original...

    Attachment 667253


    - New Superhero slide show (for my son....OK for me too )! Thanks to KOH and Eric. Just click where it says "Marvel" to activate/deactivate. The background changes for day/night and personally I like how the animations stay on

    - (Mainly for Bliken) option to show Yahoo Street address up top underneath date (switch in config to turn on/off)
    - This is not completely based on Dacal's 2.6 version but I think I have the major changes in there. For example the new rain animation and the increased amount of background weatherwalls (5 day/5 night)
    - Other minor changes (ie: to weather conditions), etc..

    I just want to thank King for inviting me to test this, I truly don't know why he did considering I hate the guy but I was honored nevertheless.

    It's been so fun being a part of this talented group, I was happy to get to know some of you on a more personal level (no homo).

    I think people are going to enjoy this tweak. I look forward to reading everyone's take on this new method.

    And I was the lamo that couldn't get it to work. The problem has been addressed. And I have done everything g outside of restoring and re jail breaking. Hopefully something will be done in future updates. Or just might have to run iLex RaT to get me back to a clean break. Thank y'all for letting me try. And wish I could have been more help

    As always without you Dacal, the widgets just wouldn't have been the same. Your talent with weather and JavaScript as a whole is always welcomed and appreciated.

    @hemp. You are always an upstanding individual that brings a consistent positive vibe to everything that I have seen u be a part of. This was no exception and you were willing to try so many things that others wouldn't have just to test this out. I think u were a huge asset to this process. Hope u are doing well my friend.

    @Durben. Thanks man, it's nice to get recognized for my ability to take someone's hard work and install it on my phone. I think too often this doesn't get the respect that I think it deserves.
