I’ve noticed the traffic coming to this site has included plenty of traffic from search terms including “weather” and “alarm clock functionality”, specifically for the Raspberry Pi. Given that interest I’ve uploaded some simple Python code for dealing with the Yahoo Weather API to Github. It can be found here:
I’ll be adding to it soon, it’s currently got plenty of stuff that’s only half way in development so although it’s perfectly functional, what I’ve decided to put on GitHub is not exactly feature rich at the moment! 😀 It handles:
- WOEID Location
- Temp High/Low
- Weather condition description
It’s a cinch to add additional data gathering methods to it as you wish though – feel free to hack about with it and send a pull req of anything interesting.
