I was wondering if I could produce webpages daily by automatically creating a standalone python script, outside of QGIS. My webpage should ideally contain various layers and an interpolation on top of them. I was wondering if without opening QGIS at all, I could use the QGIS2Web Plugin, as well as the Openlayers Map Plugin and call the requisite functions from these in a Python Script that I can schedule. I would want all of this to work on a Virtual Machine - so can't really call QGIS.
Note: I did come across various similar questions but there isn't any specific answer to my question.
I have so far been able to pretty much get most of my work working on the Python Console inside of QGIS. (I am using 2.18) - I was able to find the functions for basically reading shapefiles, performing interpolation, and then to call the function for QGIS2Web Plugin. What I aim to do is to essentially automate all of this, with different data on a daily basis.
Edit: I understand I haven't been able to put across the issue. Let me clarify.
I have a shapefile of a particular location, and data for a few points inside this shapefile's extent. I would like to interpolate over this region and produce a heatmap. I realised that using the Openlayer Plugin, I could add a google satellite image map layer to the current layers consisting of the layers for interpolation, data, as well as the initial shapefile, making the heatmap look more realistic as it would now be on top of an actual geographical area. Then I was just using the QGIS2Web tool to make HTML pages out of them.
What I really want to do is to automate this process, since I will be receiving the data real-time through sensors. Till now I have been successful enough in running successfully the processes of reading the data, the shapefile and performing interpolation, along with using QGIS2Web to create the HTML, through the in-built Python Console present in QGIS.
I was wondering if I could just do all of the above processes by using a Python Script outside of QGIS, by just appending the corresponding directories to which these belong.
