Cacti 1.0 was released a few days ago, and with it, a new plugin API. Weathermap (even from github) doesn’t currently work with Cacti 1.0. Unfortunately, at least from a first look, it also seems that it’s not possible to easily have a plugin that supports both Cacti 0.8.x and Cacti 1.x. The Cacti Group’s own plugins have made a clean break, with new versions only supporting 1.0. I think it will be a while before everyone moves to 1.0 (personally I avoid version x.0 of anything, especially with such big internal changes), and that it’s unfair that to get new Weathermap features (or fixes!), you’d need to upgrade Cacti too. So I want to continue supporting 0.8.x with new versions also, at least until Weathermap is also settled down again. With PDO, and PHP 7 support, and the changes related to code improvement, I’d hope that even if I decide to stop supporting Cacti 0.8.x, someone else could continue, after that point.
After a very busy new year, I’m back to thinking about Weathermap again, and will be finishing off the changes for PDO and PHP 7.0 soon. Once that version is released, then I’ll look at Cacti 1.0. It’s likely that Weathermap will be broken into multiple downloads: a ‘core’ with the actual map functionality and probably the CLI, and then a series of extra downloads to provide the editor, Cacti 0.8.x plugin, Cacti 1.x plugin, standalone web app, and LibreNMS plugin. You would download the core plus whichever of the other features you actually need. To get both Cacti versions working, something like this is necessary, and users of other systems don’t need any of that code cluttering up their installation.
There is (as far as I know) one remaining set of failing tests before the next release – all related to colourising icons, and transparency.
Yes – thanks to some work generously done by Cigamit of the Cacti Team, there should be a Cacti 1.0 plugin for the next release after all. I think I have a plugin that works with both 0.8.8 and 1.0.x too – that needs more testing, but seems to be working for me.
I’m getting married in a month, and renovating parts of two different houses (one is finally done – the other is my office), so time is short at the moment. I will try to get some time to keep it moving!
Congratulations Howard for getting married! 😉
Keep on with good work.
Awesome for you getting married and i want to take the time to tell you how awesome you are. network Weathermap is the best plugin by far for cacti and yiou made my life so much more simple many times throughout the year. To personally thank you even more please send me an email with your preference of an item on your amazon wishlist or if you simply prefer a paypal donation.
People like you make people like us look better. Keep being awesome and best wishes for your wedding.
Cant wait for the weathermap release that’s compatible with cacti 1.0, keep up the good work! 🙂
Any Updates? and where to download?
Hello Cacti Developer/supporter,
We are a month since the last mark and I noticed that the cacti version of my system is also upgraded to 1.x
So I would like to have the weathermap plugin working again as soon as it is available.
We are not big users of a lot of maps or so. So I think we are not very helpfull for testing purposes, but if you think otherwise contact me so I might be of some assistance.
Hi Howard, thanks a lot for the works you’ve done!
Waiting for the updates for Cacti 1.x
…meanwhile, May your lives continue to grow in love and happiness together!
OK – marriage, and most of the house renovation is done! So I am back in weathermap mode.
When are you going to release new version of network weathermap ?
When it is working! Most of the things that have been soaking up my spare time (house stuff, wedding stuff) are done now, so it should speed up. You can follow on github in the database-refactor branch.
Congratulations on your marriage! So happy for you…wishing you a long and happy life together!
Thanks so much for all your work on the weathermap code. It is so flexible and powerful, we rely on it heavily. Looking forward to the new release compatible with Cacti 1.x.
Congrats on your marriage and other life changes!
I’m excited to include the new Weathermap in my Cacti appliance as it has been a great plugin. Look forward to news and improvements.
Grat on your marrige, and wishing you a happy life!
But my bosses nagging me about the new weathermap. Any idea when will it finished?
When this list is empty:
I just upgraded my Cacti install (in fact, I was forced to because I was running such an oudated version that Debian 9 wouldnt let me run Cacti :-)), and like everyone, saw that with 1.1.11 (yuk, upgraded a day before .12 release), no weathermap. World is collapsing under my feets 🙂
So, no, I’ll not ask “when will it be available”, even if the question burns my lips, but just saying: good luck with the remains of that github list. Hope that my (numerous) maps will come back online soon 🙂
HOw things coming along with weathermap? Hope you had a wonderful wedding.. I never got the chance to play with weathermap… even couldn’t get it working with old version for some reason,,,,,
Can’t wait for it to be ready for cacti 1.1.6
Any luck of weathermap with cacti 1.x
Hi, any News for the weathermap on Cacti 1.x ?
have you any updates ? When will the new version done?
I’m sure you have been super busy with everything this summer. Any thoughts timing of an update? or perhaps some instructions on how to get the existing version to run on cacti 1.x? I have seen a couple posts where people have it going with only minor issues.
An upgrade would be nice.
Do you have any changes ready so we can test and probide bug reports?
I’m working on it! I am trying to find a way to get it done so that I am not wasting time on Cacti specifically – if I am going to have to rewrite the web interface, I’m doing it so that users of other NMS can use it too.
Waiting for it 🙂
I am running it separately, using my old conf file, and manually updating it when needed. Ouch thats pain in the a** 🙂
Good luck with that !
It’s a GREAT JOB you did the last few years, Wheatermap is truly one of the best plug-ins for cacti
Even if im a Little Late, congrats to your Marriage and good luck in Future ^^
I’m Looking forward to coming releases, Take the Time you need and don’t get upset by people who don’t value the work you do.. 🙂
Greetings from switzerland and good luck with your Work
The weathermap plugin is very useful. I thought I’d chime in to tell you that. I have not upgraded Cacti because the version i have works with Weathermap. I will not update until weathermap works. I look forward to a great quality upgrade. Thanks Howie
Are there any updates with regards to WeatherMap being compatible Cacti 1.0?
Just wanted to tell you that the weathermap plugin is great and that i cannot wait for it to work on cacti 1.0
Just wanted to let you know that the weathermap plugin is great and i cannot wait for it to be released on 1.0.
Now firmly into 2018 and I dont see any new releases of Weathermap for Cacti 1.x. Are you still developing?
Did you look? https://github.com/howardjones/network-weathermap/commits/master
It is moving along. I have a day job that pays the rent. This is what I do for “fun”.
As already said, “…Take the Time you need and don’t get upset by people who don’t value the work you do.. 🙂…”
Renaud from Belgium
you are doing excellent job.
i must tell you your ” fun ” makes many people life easy.
I am desperately waiting for this, is there any updates on this?
Gotta have that version soon!
With all this demand, you’d think someone would hop in and help you @Howard? Hehe
I would if I could.
Keep up the great work!
First, thank you so much to develop Weathermap.
Any updates about next upgrade???
Hi, thx for the great work. Is there a possibility to test the new 1.0 version?
Eagerly waiting for the update for cacti 1.X
The same here!
Still waiting for plugin…
Please keep me informed.
keep up the good work
really hoping v 1.x is supported by end of july or august, i really miss that feature
Has the new version been developed well?
I hope everything is OK with you, I read that you had plans to find some time this month to make WM working in CACTI 1.x.
Do you think that’s going to be for real ? or any other time this year?
Just asking because I would like to integrate your maps in a project where I have CACTI 1.x before I hand it over
This is the only plugin keeping me from moving production Cacti to 1x, don’t want to give it up 🙂
keep up the good work
Still waiting for plugin network-weathermap…
miss so much
has the version of weather-map been released that is compatible with the new cacti version 1.1?
Hoping for the release of weathermap working in new cacti! 🙁
Any update on a release for 1.0
Have you a visibility for the coding progress of Weathermap 1.x ?
Thanks a lot.
it’s never gonna happen
Hi, any new news about supporting cacti v 1.0?
any updates? i don’t see any new commits or changes in 2 or 3 months for 1.0 or 1.1?
Cacti v 1.2.0 is here …
Weathermap was a project with a huge community behind it.
So my mistake www to act just as a consumer… Now I Realice I have to be involved if I want progress.
Thanks Howard for your effort. Its time to start a branch.
At any time in the last 5 years or so, you have been able to make Pull Requests.
May I know if there any update of weathermap for cacti 1.1.38 version.
I have tried with many plugin, non of them work!
No hope for support for Cacti 1.1….
