A tool for receiving textual weather information.
# as root make install # to uninstall make uninstall
The reasoning behind this tool is that it provides a way to get the bare minimum of information you need. All the CLI weather tools I've used, while nice, have not been very 'script-friendly'. This tool gives you only the bare minimum of what you ask for. Each item is separated by a new line. I've intentionally left out some items present in the OpenWeatherMap reponse simply because most of the time I never look at them.
Note: You will need to sign up for a free OpenWeatherMap API key in order to use this tool
simple-weather -t -l seattle -k myapikeyhere # get the temperature in seattle" simple-weather -c -l seattle -k myapikeyhere # get the 'condition' i.e. sunny, cloudy, etc." simple-weather -w -l seattle -k myapikeyhere # get the windspeed" simple-weather -tcw -u m -l seattle -k myapikeyhere # get all three, and use metric units" simple-weather -h # show this help message" simple-weather -v # show version" # note the order of arguments does not matter
