Tell us about yourself!
The tutorial has been updated!
1. Because Initial State is awesome! 2. Because I work there and put this piece of content up here to show y'all how awesome it is. 3. Initial State does charge a monthly fee after a free trial, but is completely free for students. Gotta pay the bills y'all.
I'm going to update this tutorial very soon to use WeatherStack! Stay tuned.
The service is free if you're a student with a .edu account. It makes sense that you would have to pay for the services because people work for those companies and they would like to buy sense hats too.
Hey there! You can convert to celcius using the instructions here: https://support.initialstate.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003171991-Unit-ConversionI'm not sure how to make it start feeding data across DarkSky automatically after the pi boots up. I can look into that for you.
Hey there! I didn't see your comment before, sorry about that! The project has since been updated to use the Dark Sky API... Which is free!
Hey George, Initial State just changed their pricing to be much cheaper for people doing these kind of projects.
Yes, that is why the project has since been updated to use the Dark Sky API, which is free...

That was a typo! Sorry about that! Fixed now.
Whoops! That was a typo. Fixed it. Thanks for letting me know!

Not particularly. You can just use the Wunderground API to get outside data if you're not concerned with having inside data. You can even just run the script from your laptop if you don't have a pi. Although, you can connect nearly everything to an Initial State Dashboard. Here's a link to their tutorials page where you can see a ton of projects to put on your TV screen: www.initialstate.com/learn
We originally intended to merge the scripts, but we went ahead and did it for you here. You can replace your script with this one: https://github.com/initialstate/wunderground-sensehat/blob/master/sensehat_wunderground_calibrated.py
Hey there! I added a step the other day that should help calibrate the temperature taking CPU temp into consideration.
That is very strange! Is there anyway you can show me an example?

I think it's just because your stream name is different - it needs to be the same over both. So “Red Flag” instead of “:flag: Red Flag” or “:check: Red Flag"

You can have multiple keys on Initial State, so you just have to make sure you're using the right one! I do that all the time. Check out some of the other instructables I've posted using them! Lots o' fun.
The cursor stays there for me. It might just be indicating that the script is running. Let it sit for a minute, and then check Initial State. If that doesn't work then let me know.
Hmmm... Only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that there could be a typo in your access key or somewhere else in that section. I always make sure copy and paste those things to make sure something doesn't get lost in translation. Or, it could be something else.
