Radar Widget

Abstract License Details User Software Responsibilities Status


K0EMT's Radar is a Konfabulator (now Yahoo! Widgets) widget for getting an updating Radar image.


It is currently my intent to distribute this widget and accompanying files under the terms of the GNU LGPL with the stipulation that this author (K0EMT) is to receive a free copy of any commercial software that utilizes this code.


This Radar widget is based on an original widget built by Daniel Radtke.

This version includes:
  • Configurable URL to retrieve image from
  • Configurable retrieve interval (minimum 60secs)
  • Konfabulator v2.x timer code
  • No frame around image
  • About Box

User Software Responsibilities

  • Go to the National Weather Service website and determine the URL for getting the "latest" image.
  • Optionally, the user may specify any image URL


In the future I may enhance the program to allow users to select from a predefined list of NWS radars. Feel free to encourage this or other enhancements with some PayPal dollars. :)
