• Weather Door

    From Dmxrob@1:103/705 to All on Tuesday, February 05, 2019 16:58:20
    Just curious to see how many of you know that Weather Underground, now owned by IBM, is turning off its Free API as of mid-February. I know the popular Weather door out there for Synch right now relies on it. I've forked the code from github and currently trying to get it setup such that it will use the NOAA feed from the government.

    Just a heads up if you do use that door.

    If you get that working I am sure there will be some folks here interested
    in it.

    That's pretty cool, thanks for working on that. I'd be interested in that if you have success.

    EC's openweathermap.ssjs https://github.com/echicken/synchronet-web-v4/tree/master/web/sidebar/.extras ... the openweathermap.js is in the sbbs/exec/load directory or at http://cvs.s ynchro.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/exec/load/openweathermap.js?revision=1.8&view=ma rkup
    ... you'd need a key from openweathermap they are free ... or perhaps someone could share theirs with you :p also, sbbs/exec/load/ircbots has a couple *.ssjs files for use/reference

    to use it in the /sbbs/web ... simply doing a load('openweathermap.ssjs');
    in a location you'd like it displayed works (ie for one of my uses I had an index.xjs and I place it in a <div> <?xjs load('openweathermap.ssjs'); ?> </div> )

    EC helped me out in that regards a lot :-)
