Shure thing Jasem.
I'm down with the common cold now, but I might get to get a article going on Sunday.

Thanks Gonzo.
Feel free to pm me. If I'm slow to reply I might not have recovered yet :sick:

Building the induino MeteoStation with 3d printed housing #18812
Thanks Magnus for sharing your progress! I just started putting together a MeteoStation and I am using the modified code your shared above.
For now, I just have the dht22 connected to the Arduino. The induino test code work well and I can see the temperature in the serial monitor.
The arduino is connected to my raspberry pi running indiserver.
After updating the arduino with the meteostation code, when I connect to the raspberry pi remotely from Ekos, the control panel doesn't show the temperature, instead it is only showing a long list of sockets, any idea what am i doing wrong?
Thank for your help,
-remy

@rdw4176 !?
Sounds like you are starting the indi_duino driver without specifying skeleton file, thus starting the default simple_switcher_sk.xml

Check if your skeleton files is in /usr/share/indi or /urs/local/share/ind (most likely local), and try this one-liner.
killall indiserver; rm /tmp/INDIFIFO; mkfifo /tmp/INDIFIFO; indiserver -f /tmp/INDIFIFO & echo start indi_duino -n \"MeteoStation\" -s \"/usr/local/share/indi/meteostation_sk.xml\" >/tmp/INDIFIFO

Yes, the loading the right skeleton was the step I was missing, thanks for pointing that out! The meteostation panel is now showing in Ekos. No value is updating, all showing 0. I guess, I might have some more configuration to do in order to see the temperature from the DHT22, I'll keep debugging

right, I have ordered the electronic components off fleebay, just need to pick the solar cell and an enclosure. This meteostation was a great addition to my observatory, hence it's coming back in.
Previous one was also my all-sky camera (I will build one again).

Magnus, can you please let me know how to get the latest code for this please, as in with all your updates?
My brain isn't computing all this github wizardry today :(

At the moment it's only in my fork, and the changes for the meteostation, meteo test and meteo web is in their own branch.

So
git clone https://github.com/magnue/indi.git magnueINDI
cd magnueINDI
git checkout induino-meteotest-updates # This will give you the changes for Firmwares/meteoTEST
git checkout induino-meteo-updates # This gives you the Firmwares/induinoMETEO changes (meteoTEST is reverted...)
git checkout induino-meteoweb-updates # Updates to add-ons/meteostationWEB (mostly the meteoconfig.py with ssh tunnel connection options)

I'll hopefully get to write the HOWTO this weekend. I just have to test the meteo web updates, and make pull requests to indi

Well.. you should have the changes for meteo web.

The way branches work is that you only get the changes of the branch you have checked out an all it's parrents.
master | - induino-meteo-updates
       | - induino-meteotest-updates
       | - induino-meteoweb-updates
As they are all based on master, and not on eachother then the changes in meteo updates will be gone when you checkout meteotest or meteoweb updates.

So do
git checkout induino-meteotest-updates
then check the meteoTEST firmware for changes, and so on,
