Perl-AustralianWeather

Australian Weather AGI for Asterisk
submitted by Dan Roe (nov 2006) - updated (sep 2007)

This Perl AGI downloads the latest observation data from www.bom.gov.au
It then reads it out to the caller and hangs up.

Updated - Sep 2007

You can find an improved version at: http://shells.homeunix.net/unicommAsterisk/download/agi/weather.agi.

HOWTO

First we create a small macro in extensions.conf
... so it's nice and neat to call

     [macro-applicationWeather]
     exten => s,1,Answer()
     exten => s,2,Wait(1)
     exten => s,3,AGI(bom.agi)
     exten => s,4,Hangup()


Next in your main context, along with all your other numbers.
Call the macro like so: (dial 6)

     exten => 6,1,Macro(applicationWeather)               ; Weather Application


The only thing left to do is customize the Perl AGI script.
Save it to /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/bom.agi
