Cysboard, an HTML based alternative to Conky

I saw that earlier on the BL forum, interesting project.

I remember one of the early conky gurus (buck, who did the original conkyForecast) was toying with using html for a weather conky. As I recall, his goal was to make it clickable like a web page.

Now that would have been cool.

That’s what I thought, but there wasn’t too much interest - plain text configuration of conky 1.7 was so much easier. Buck was looking for some help, then got super busy at work so the project died.

Bummer! Since weather underground is now charging for having its API. I’m still playing with alternatives.

As it tends to happen all to often. Its a real shame
