#Tasker  Action: Fetch and Speak Weather for Australian Locations

Usually the weather underground is used for such kind of action, but for some reason it is now working for Australian locations. So I decided to use the weatherzone's weather feed as the source, and it turned out working perfect.

The location in this xml is Sydney Airport. For other locations, find out the rss feed url in weatherzone, and replace the Path in the HTTP Get with the string in the url started with ?.

Until now I didn't add the forecast part, but if someday I feel really boring maybe I'll do it. So that variable is there, but not working now.

Copy the code to a text editor and save it as a xml file. And Enjoy!

BTW, regex almost killed me. I'm really not a techie.

#Tasker   share
Customised Sound Profile Switch

Unfortunately, we don't have a quick approach to the very convenient Silence/Vibration/Sound in Lollipop. But no worries, tasker will give what you need, and better.

Let's start with the actions.

Apparently we need an action to silence the phone. It looks like:
A1: Interrupt Mode [ Mode:Priority ] 
A2: Silent Mode [ Mode:Vibrate ] 
A3: Media Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A4: DTMF Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A5: Notification Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A6: Ringer Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A7: Notification Pulse [ Set:On ] 
A8: System Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A9: Alarm Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ]
I call this action "Total Silence".

And then we need a second action to set the sound volume to a normal profile. Like:
A1: Interrupt Mode [ Mode:All ] 
A2: Silent Mode [ Mode:Off ] 
A3: Media Volume [ Level:5 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A4: DTMF Volume [ Level:5 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A5: Notification Volume [ Level:5 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A6: Ringer Volume [ Level:3 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A7: Notification Pulse [ Set:On ] 
A8: System Volume [ Level:5 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
A9: Alarm Volume [ Level:7 Display:Off Sound:Off ]
I call this "Normal".

Now let's go to the switch.
There's several ways to do it:
1 two tasker shortcuts (it's not a switch, of course)
2 a tasker scene to trigger two different actions
3 (which I preferred)Minimalistic Text Widget to display the sound volume information as well trigger different tasker actions by single-tap or double-tap.
