A working re-implementation of the weather module for Sopel

Project description

version build issues alerts coverage-status license

Introduction

sopel-weather is a weather lookup plugin for Sopel.

Since Yahoo deprecated their weather API on January 3, 2019, a reimplementation of the weather plugin was necessary

Installing

If possible, use pip to install this plugin. Below are example commands; you might need to add sudo and/or call a different pip (e.g. pip3) depending on your system and environment. Do not use setup.py install; Sopel won’t be able to load the plugin correctly.

Published release

pip install sopel-modules.weather

From source

Clone the repo, then run this in /path/to/sopel-weather

pip install .

Configuring

You can automatically configure this plugin using the sopel configure –plugins command.

However, if you want or need to configure this plugin manually, you will need to define the following in ~/.sopel/default.cfg

[weather]
geocoords_provider = GEOCOORDS_PROVIDER
geocoords_api_key = GEOCOORDS_API_KEY
weather_provider = WEATHER_PROVIDER
weather_api_key = WEATHER_API_KEY

Usage

Requirements

Modern weather APIs require Latitude & Longitude as inputs to their APIs, so we need to leverage a GeoCoords API to convert location searches to coordinates.
