Weather Extension
« on: September 08, 2020, 12:07:28 AM »
Hi everyone,

I'm the creator of a weather extension for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Edge. It's a quick way to check the weather forecast in your browser. I would love some feedback on the app. Please let me know of any features that could be added.

Add Davis Weather Link Live data to it...  WLL is a device Davis sells, that gives a JSON file of current conditions as read by the Davis sensor suite...

I like the radar with storm tracks.

Do you have a mobile app version?

Thanks! No I do not have a mobile app. Weather Extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Edge browsers.

Mind sharing more information on this? I am not familiar with Davis Weather Link.

If you have access to a WLL, you get this JSON file by calling as follows:

Your FAQ says that forecast data comes from Dark Sky. What are you going to do from now on that Dark Sky has been squandered away by Apple?
(shame on Apple...they should serve penance for not playing along with others)

Yes, it is a shame. My plan is to switch to another weather provider. I'm also hoping to allow users to pick from multiple different weather provider APIs. What is everyone's favorite weather data provider?

I think most weather station owners have decided that by uploading to PWSweather.com then this allows you a contributor's limited free license to the Aeris Weather API for forecast data. Aeris Weather owns PWSweather.
I don't want to speak for others. Maybe others have other options that they prefer.
