One of the great things about the Pi (and more generally Linux, and even more generally computers, and even more generally, life) is that there is rarely a single 'best way'.

The 'best way' is to do your research, look at what others have done, define your own requirements as best as possible, and ask specific questions when needed.

That way you can avoid unhelpful philosophical responses like this one. :D

[EDIT:] Here a few links to get your research started; 'different' ways, none of them 'best'. ... pberry_pi/ ... ation.html ... tion_setup

The answer is "It depends.".

Most of what it depends on is the make, model and interface requirements of your weather station.

i agree with DougieLawson, depends

i got one of these Weather Stations and i was going to follow this guide by pingu512 to set it up, then realised he had already made a prebuilt image of his setup, so i used that instead

I am not a linux guru, I am a beginner and i found it relatively easy to setup from the guide of Pingu512

Hi, I just finished my weather station which reads temps via a digital DS18B20 and posts them via a RESTful interface to a Java web application on a cloud server. The server displays the weather station web site with diagrams and charts of the temperature over time. Take a look at this blog post and GitHub account for the python and java code. ... ry-pi.html
