10 Very nice looking widget for big or default panel size, but for smaller panel, icons are little bigger. Any option to change icon size? Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion! I am working on streamlining the icon process, and I will take this into account.

Dude! I've been waiting soo long for a nice weather app for kde5. PLEASE finish making this the prettiest and most comprehensive weather widget kde has ever seen (I know you can do it). Those dudes who want weather in their docks are all virgins. I'm old. I'm set in my ways. I want a REAL desktop with a pretty, comprehensive, and configurable weather app that's always there, reminding me I'm still alive and there's actually a world out there - with weather!
Honestly, I haven't tried your app. yet - but I like what I'm seeing so far. If you haven't done it yet, please allow for a completely invisible background (or none at all). That's a deal breaker for me. Thanks again for a really interesting weather app. I'm installing it now. Best of luck.

Wow thanks! I really wanted a comprehensive desktop weather widget too! I went ahead and added the configurable background. I still have a lot I want to do with this so this is very motivating!

Thank you so much!

Update on forecast page:
I have the page setup and information displaying, but I am working on icon spacing problems. The icons are from two different sources, and when they are together, the output looks choppy.

Just noticed that you have implemented the forecast page. Icons look fine for me. Keep up the great work on this widget. Would love if you could add the Feels Like temperature to the popup information being displayed. Cheers!

Added feels like temp to the forecast page tooltips. I mainly just want to have all of my icons come from one source rather than two.

10 Very nice. Thanks for creating this. Of course I have a request. Any possibility of allowing the user to adjust the icon size or at least add some padding when used in a dock? Or maybe have the icon size match the system tray icons.
Right now it is just a bit crowded.

An update on icon sizing. I got the icons from two sources. The icons from Wunderground are setup differently than the Meteocons. I noticed that the Meteocons are more cramped than the Wunderground icons. I am working to change the padding of them.

Thank you very much!

Currently, the font size is dynamically calculated based on whether the widget is in a horizontal or vertical panel.
I do want to add something where the font size could be edited to make it fit in with other widgets in your setup.
Also, I never thought about changing the icon size so thinks for the idea!

It would be interesting if it followed the same font size as the date and time widget or if it was possible to set it manually, it is visually inconsistent when they are side by side.
Thanks for the updates, great job!

If I'm not mistaken the Event Calendar widget, you have this option to control the font size, sometimes @ odd-k can use it as a base.
Great job!

The widget should have similar behavior to Event Calendar now. Users can choose a specific pixel size or set it to 0 and have the widget calculate it dynamically.

Congratulations on the widget!
I would like to leave two suggestions:

1. Monochrome icon option for the system tray. (https://br.pinterest.com/pin/457678380855431693/)
2. Dynamic icon, which changes according to the climatic condition and reports the temperature beside it. (https://extensions.gnome.org/extension-data/screenshots/screenshot_613.png)

This widget is promising. However, it's difficult for me to use it since it only shows me Imperial units.

Thanks so much for the feedback!

The latest update of Manjaro broke some Qt stuff so I'm not able to work on this because of that. However, adding other unit configurations was high on my TODO list.

Thanks again!
