About this version .
It is being developed to solely work with the Meteobridge NANO(SD) and Meteobridge Pro in conjunction with Davis weather station products Vantage Pro,Vue,Envoy .It does not or will not offer full support for any other brands of weather station hardware.
It uses a brand new small css framework(it will be 50% smaller when complete) based on css grid and simplified methods to display data and have expandable options .It currently offers 3 column,2column,1column displays automatically based on screen resolution and orientation.It will support widescreen resolutions and offer full width screen layouts.more info https://github.com/weather34/Meteobridge-Beta and please raise issues only via GITHUB issues form and provide at least a working url or screenshot clearly highlighting issue found.
At this stage it is not about ideas and extras it is about creating a stable version once that is established we can move on to ideas and other requirements.
It will be a slow process and at times nothing will change for long periods and some issues will not be immediately dealt with due to other commitments.However at this stage it is fully working but please be patient all will come good..
*important this is not a replacement for the current meteobridge version maintained by lightmaster that version offers a wider support of hardware and this beta version uses a completely different css framework.

weather34 meteobrodge nano Meteobridge Nano

Meteobridge Nano is such an unobtrusive product it is simply a plug in and forget component. What this product does in simple terms is replace the need of a optional Davis loggger component and comes complete with the popular Meteobridge inteface and software many enthusiasts have become accustom to over the years. Sometimes the simplicity is all we need to fulfil our enjoyment. Nano's hidden gem becomes a NANOSD which can you use numerous optional approved microSD cards to expand its storage and capability.It really is one of the most rich featured options for the Davis Console owners.

"Brian my dear friend I have been a keen follower of you since 2015, it was your template called “Simplicity” that inspired me to use my weather station on the web.I just want to say I will miss your continuous ideas and releases , I admire your design ideas and enthusiasm. In recent months I upgraded my whole weather station and bought the Davis VP2 Plus package with a NANOSD again its your enthusiasm that pushed me in that direction. Now my old station is installed at my sons farm not sure how long it will last but again we set it up with a meteobridge tplink and your template, its doing great..So my dear friend I wish you luck in your future endeavours and if you are ever back in the UK feel free drop me an email would love to meet you and talk about how you live in Turkey..ps I lived and taught in Fethiye for 4 years back in the 90's… "

"the difficult part is not getting the data, the challenge is to make that data presentable with usable information and understandable for everyone not just enthusiasts.too often designs are full of too much information ,poor choice of colour with bold bright high contrasted colours and then every possible newly learnt piece of code inserted somewhere.just because you discovered a new piece of code does not actually mean it works in design unless you compile it with design and appearance as a priority."..brian underdown 2016
