You did a really great job, I wanted to say kudos. Would you mind if
I tried to emulate what you did? Or, if your work is open source,
would you mind if tried to rewrite the whole thing from Python into
Thanks! I'm not a coder or anything and this was the first thing I ever did in Python. It started out just outputting the data like a list, and then I just started adding onto it, making that template for it, etc. I originally wrote it for DayDream BBS, but I re-did it and started using mystic's MCI codes rather than ANSI positioning.
I run the script as a door from the BBS, or it could be a timed event, and it just generates a text file which is then displayed to the user.
The module that does the heavy lifting is xmltodict, which I'm told is very similar to JSON. I use it for some other stuff like a Top 10 Box Office listing, and I had a Summits on the Air spot lister once upon a time also.
You're free to use whatever you like. I was basically just riffing off the solar widgets from hamqsl. I actually sent him a screenshot of it in action and he loved it.
My post was basically because I was tinkering around to see if I
could even play with the data before I started attempting to write
Good luck with it! Let me know if you want to see the Python and I'll try to figure out a way to make it available. I never really released anything because my code is so bad I didn't want to get ridiculed for it, heheh.
In the meantime, I hope this solar flux index goes back up. I can't make any magic happen on the airwaves...
