Universal weather platform

I wanted to be able to use the built in weather card but with my own sensors for current weather, to be more precise: i wanted to use my netatmo weather station.

So I created a universal weather platform. It inherits all the values from another weather platform (Yahoo weather, Dark Sky or other) but you can override any value (except forecast and condition).

It’s all pretty simple. Just put linked file in the custom_components/weather folder. And configure:

  - platform: yweather
  - platform: universal
    weather: weather.yweather
      temperature: sensor.netatmo_utomhus_temperature

availible sensors to override is:

  • humidity
  • ozone
  • pressure
  • temperature
  • visibility
  • wind_bearing
  • wind_speed

I hope someone else can benefit from this :slight_smile:



Very nice, I like the idea of feeding a platform with one’s own data sources. Thanks a lot for sharing! :slight_smile:

This is handy thanks for sharing.

I have followed the steps (folder creation, file upload, config edition, etc.), but when I try to restart, it stops and I get this:
Platform error weather.universal - No module named 'homeassistant.components.universal.weather'

I then rebooted the machine, but got this error in the ha log:

I would really like to use your component, I have exactly the same use case (Netatmo Weather Station).
Any idea?
