I have a SQUIX Color Weather station that worked perfectly until WunderGround discontinued their 'free' API.  I have been trying to find the correct Arduino Sketch/Libraries etc. to load so that I can continue to use the Weather station.  I have read the ThingPulse ESP8266 WiFi Color Display Kit guide but it does not help.  Specifically following the "Install the ESP8266 toolchain" section does not identify the specific package I need from GitHub. I have downloaded and unzipped "esp8266-weather-station-color-master.zip".  When I try to compile the Arduino sketch "esp8266-weather-station-color", it throws an error "Error compiling for board LOLIN(Wemos) D1 mini Pro" which is the board identified in the guide for the Color Display Kit.  Just for grins I set the board the "NodeMCU" and it also fails.  I installed the "esp8266" board (v2.4.2) in the IDE as described in the guide.  ??   Anyone have experience going from the SQUIX code to the ThinkPulse code?

What are the compile errors you are getting? Did you install the latest version of all the libraries listed in the guide?

I believe I have installed the latest libraries. Is there a way to attach the Error Dump file ?  The specific fatal error is:
"Error compiling for board LOLIN(EMOS) D1 mini Pro."
Prior to this error there was a message that read,
"collect2.exe:  error:  ld returned 1 exit status"
After that message there were six lines each describing a library being used...
"Using library simpleDSTadjust…"
"Using library SPI..."
"Using library ESP8266WiFi..."
"Using library XPT2046_Touchscreen..."
"Using library Json_Streaming_Parser-1.0.5..."
"Using library Mini_Grafx-0.0.12..."

"Using library Mini_Grafx-0.0.12..." - this definitely isn't the latest. We're currently at 1.2.2. I propose you first go to Sketch > Include Library... > Manage Libraries.... and update the libs.

Recent versions of the Arduino IDE regularly flash a notification popup when new versions of libs become available.

Done, same error....

I've discovered ANOTHER package on github:
https://github.com/fowlerk/ESP8266-Color-Weather-Station-v8.git
This file is considerably larger than those I had previously downloaded.
Is this the correct package??

That link is not a correct version, you should use the thingpulse sources
