I re-Write Weather geeklets.
I use icons form your geeklets.

Hey man I love your work with this. It seems to be the only weather image script I can get going. Seem to have hit a problem because it doesn't change the temp pic when the weather changes. Error message when I run the script on Applescript editor says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/Users/***/Documents/Customize/GeekTool/Weather/", line 26, in <module>
dom = parse("/tmp/yahooweather.xml")
File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/xml/dom/", line 1914, in parse
File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/xml/dom/", line 924, in parse
File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/xml/dom/", line 207, in parseFile
xml.parsers.expat.ExpatError: not well-formed (invalid token): line 8, column 181.

(obviously i changed the *** to my username) I'm a bit of a noob at scripting so I wouldn't have a clue what this means but I seem to have followed the instructions. Do you have any idea of what's going wrong or how I can fix it? Cheers

I'm sort of confused... I did what the instructions said, and I checked everything over a couple of times, and it didn't work. Is the image in Geektool supposed to be set to the WeatherIcon.png in the temp folder? It's just the picture for "cloudy," so Geektool is only displaying that and not the actual weather. The other shell (for WeatherIcon.scpt) failed (I set it to display status feedback image, and it is red.) Is it supposed to be that way? I'm kind of confused because the weather really isn't cloudy. :lol: Thanks!

Having trouble with the information showing up, the image showed up easily.

That is because of a change on Yahoo! Weather's part. I have no idea how to fix it. But the weather information isn't what this release was intended for. It's more just for the weather image. For weather information, try searching for more up to date weather geeklets on Google.

I figured it out on MacThemes, just needed a different code for geektool
