Welcome to the Cumulus Wiki. This community Wiki is for sharing knowledge of the Cumulus Weather Station software.

The current maintained and supported version of the software is known as Cumulus MX. There is limited support available for the legacy Cumulus 1 software - any remaining users are encouraged to migrate from Cumulus 1 to Cumulus MX. A number of developers are contributing to MX, but the bulk of the development has been done by Mark Crossley.

If you are new to Wikis we suggest you spend a few minutes reading basic articles about them. Familiarise yourself with:

  • Are you willing to contribute to this Wiki's documentation?
  • Are you new to Cumulus MX? If so, you are the best possible person to know what newcomers need in this Wiki. You also know what you have discovered, and can document it to be useful for others.
  1. As a starting point, we suggest you read How to Edit,
    • that is full of hints on how to write Wiki pages,
    • including Cumulus Wiki specific help.
  2. If you
    • want a suggestion to start you off ...
    • or want to make a suggestion ...
      • ... How_you_can_contribute is the page you should go to, its content should be updated when work done, or suggestions need to be recorded.
  • This Main Page (only administrators can update this page) provides direct links to a set of category pages. In the future, anyone will be able to edit the new, and amended, "category" pages, those are now the entry points grouping the rest of the documentation in this Wiki.
    1. The pages specific to MX and specific to legacy software are now in separate columns
    2. This main page does provide direct links to key pages that are unlikely to be renamed/removed, but administrators have limited time to edit such links.

  • The old Fine Offset stations were long ago documented in some pages linked from Category:StationSpecific
  • There is minimal documentation for Davis stations and Instromet stations, can you rectify this?
  • There is no documentation yet for the newer Ecowitt devices, can you rectify this?
  • This Wiki documents the legacy Cumulus 1 in good detail due to many different contributors
  • Cumulus MX nowadays is different from the early MX beta; do you use/understand any of the new functionality meaning you can document it for those new to that functionality? Some of the early MX documentation has been deleted, and some pages make it clear that they apply to an earlier MX release.
  • MX offers much functionality. Some pages use the {{Template:WorkInProgressBanner}} to indicate other contributors are needed to expand the current content
