Peter, I had a look at GitHub but for me it’s just too much hassle to get into it. I’m a user having no clue about programming and it’s structure. I only have two points to add regarding your instructions:

1) Setup a Raspberry Pi To Intercept PWS Information (via Access Point)

“Do not enable the WiFi interface by providing a wpa_supplicant.conf file but do enable ssh. You can now ssh into the Pi via the ethernet network and contiue the setup process.” That way you have to connect the Pi Zero to a monitor for configuration (correct me if I’m wrong). I simply copied an empty ssh file into root and was able to ssh into the Pi. As most users might need an HDMI adapter for the Zero this could ease the process.

2) Installating a Local Weather Service onto a Raspberry Pi

Step 1: When executing pi@OSPi:~ $ curl -sL | sudo -E bash -l an advice was shown to sudo apt-get install -y nodejs The instruction shows sudo apt install -y nodejs Again, I don’t know if that is relevant or not.

Those instructions are well written and it was easy for me to follow them. As a result all working fine now.
