Notification tray icon that shows temperature and humidity readings from local sensors and from the internet.


I have two TX29 DTH-IT temperature and humidity sensors at home, one on my balcony and one in my living room. I collect their readings on my Raspberry Pi and provide a local HTTP API to read the current temperature and humidity.

To make them accessible on my PC, I scripted this quick little tray icon that fetches the temperature and humidity values from my sensors (and one pair of values for my city from a free internet service) and shows them in the icon’s menu. It’s nice to be able to see the current in- and outdoor temperature at a glance.
