Get Your Weather In Your Terminal

First off, where have you been???

Ok, our school was finally in person and I had not been in school for a while and thus I had not coded in a fat 4 months. I finally decided to come back but this time I've got more projects in the pipeline.

Why did you make this project??

The goal of this project was to make a safe way to get local weather data, because websites can be annoying such as making us remove ad blockers, and even steal our personal data, which in my opinion is a very big deal.

Therefore, I made it so you input your latitude and longitude (doesn't even need to be exactly yours), and better yet is that none of this data is stored, but in upcoming versions of my console stuff, every bit of data stored will be local, and will be safe for you to use!.

Upcoming changes/Ideas

  • Make city name an option to get weather, less specific but still just as accurate

  • Add more commands and features that will make switching to a console even worth it in the first place

I don't know why this is overrated. I see that you are using openweathermap's API, and putting in the latitude and longitude of the places. But openweathermap has loads of more functionality, like you can put in the city name rather than the latitude, longitude. I made this a while back with relatively elegant CSS, aswell as metric, imperial and kelvin options, but all I got was 3 upvotes

RESULT:

i am not hating or being bitter or anything, I am just saying you could take this a lot farther than you have done.

For those concerned, here is the repl:

@OldWizard209 you're fine, nothing wrong.

That's a really kewl project, sorry ReplTalk didn't take to it. Oftentimes it just depends on when you post your project if it gets trending quickly because of a few eyes then you get more visibility.

Side Note: Thanks for removing the link to your post. It really wasn't as big a problem as others made it but thanks anyways.

OldWizard209 (1643)

That's a really kewl project

Thanks. And also I really appreciate you for apologizing on behalf of ReplTalk. I completely accept the reality that real hardwork projects don't get recognized and overrated users who post low effort projects get all the recognition. But, I guess thats life. Thanks anyways :)

It's about the title lol @RayhanADev

FlaminHotValdez (716)

kinda off lol the high where I live is 87 and low is 60...

repl gave me 99 and 55

(This is fahrenheit btw)

Whippingdot (681)

maybe try to change it so you can input city names instead?

RohilPatel (1597)

I love how nobody reads the description and goes right for the code @Whippingdot

Whippingdot (681)

no read it, just after i put the comment lol @RohilPatel

RohilPatel (1597)

It only works in the United States and if there are cities that have the same name you will never know if ur getting the right weather data and using coordinates makes you feel like a hacker @Whippingdot

ch1ck3n (2393)

69 69 is apprantely very cold

FlaminHotValdez (716)

@ch1ck3n I think 69 69 is in siberia or smth

RayhanADev (2622)

Hey welcome back! Kewl project, maybe add a feature so if you input nothing (like on the first step) it uses a default value.

RohilPatel (1597)

Yep thank you! Yes! I'll look into that and add it to the next version! @RayhanADev
