Provides widgets to display forecasts of surf data for a selected spot. Queries the Magicseaweed Surf Forecast API and displays the upcoming week's predicted surf conditions. Forecasts wave height, swell height, swell direction, period, wind, and wind direction. Useful options allow for an uncluttered display in tight sidebars. Responsive design allows for any width;
This is a full surf forecast for one surf spot, with all graphs and details enabled.
This is a closeup of the swell and break height forecasts.
Do I have to display the Magicseaweed logo?
Yes, Magicseaweed requires it for the use of their surf data.
Why are some of my graphs empty?
Not all data will be available for all spots. You are probably accessing a bouy that doesn’t provide the data you are looking for.
Uncheck that graph in the widget admin.
How can I change the colors on the color-scaled period graphs?
Edit the functions file and look for the $periodColorMap variable.
Input you own hexColors there and the functions will create a new scale for you.
My font doesn’t look right, what do I do?
Edit the surf_report.css file in the includes folder. I would only edit the first element, AKA, #magicSeaweedSurfReport.
Fonts should be edited there because the rest of the report is responsive to those font sizes.
This is the first version.
