View current weather conditions in Enhydris
Enhydris-synoptic is an app that adds a page to Enhydris that shows current conditions in several stations.
Note that it does not check permissions; any synoptic view created will be public, regardless of whether the timeseries from which it is derived are marked top secret.
Enhydris-synoptic is free software, available under the GNU Affero General Public License.
Installing and configuring
pip install enhydris-synoptic
In the Enhydris settings.py file, add enhydris_synoptic to INSTALLED_APPS, and set ENHYDRIS_SYNOPTIC_ROOT and ENHYDRIS_SYNOPTIC_URL.
Enhydris-synoptic works by creating static files which are then served by the web server. ENHYDRIS_SYNOPTIC_ROOT indicates where this files shall be stored. ENHYDRIS_SYNOPTIC_URL is currently not used anywhere, but it’s better to set it anyway; later versions might start to use it without warning.
In the Enhydris configuration directory, execute python manage.py migrate.
Run celery and celerybeat, and configure celerybeat to execute the enhydris_synoptic.tasks.create_static_files task once in a while.
Configure your web server to serve ENHYDRIS_SYNOPTIC_ROOT at ENHYDRIS_SYNOPTIC_URL.
Go to the admin and setup a view.
After celery executes, the report will be available at ENHYDRIS_SYNOPTIC_URL + slug + '/', where slug is the URL identifier given to the synoptic view.
