So finally built the sky weather with a raspberry pi 3. After fixing some missing dependencies and reading other forum postings i might be getting closer to getting it online.
(The gitbub page says to get started to read the tutorials or read the skyweather instructable. Scrolled through 10 pages of tutorials and nothing matched getting started with the basic kit, could not find a skyweather instructable on www.instructables.com/ )
Now have the software kicking off on boot, nohup.out now has no errors. But how do i know it is working?
ok, some more googling and several missing dependencies and fixes later the system seems to be working. Took some guessing on which py scripts to run and how to configure it. Currently following a blog posting on setting up mysql for logging
