What it does

This script will find the most recent raw file that PYWWS has produced in its data path, look for the last line and then look for the wind speed value (value 9- or counting from 0 as list arrays do – it is the 8th).

3 lights = rustling the leaves
6 lights = inside out umbrellas
12 lights = inside out houses

Installing Apache – a needed requirement with the new version, this is a very easy step to do

Connect to your Raspberry Pi with a tool like PuTTY…….
