Command line weather app
A command line weather app
Installation with pipx is recommended.
pipx install weather-command
Alternatively Weather Command can be installed with pip.
pip install weather-command
First an API key is needed from OpenWeather, A free account is all that
is needed. Once you have your API key create an environment variable named
constains your API key.
Each time the shell is restarted this variable will be cleared. To avoid this it can be added to your
profile. For example if your shell is zsh the API key can be added to the
~/.zshenv file. Doing this
will prevent the need to re-add the key each time the shell is started.
To get the weather for a city:
weather-command city seattle
Once installed you can also add aliases to your shell to make it quick to get a forecast. For example
if your shell is zsh you can add something like the following to your
alias we="weather-command zip 98109 -i --am-pm" alias wed="weather-command zip 98109 -i --am-pm -f daily" alias weh="weather-command zip 98109 -i --am-pm -f hourly"
After adding this to the
~/.zshrc you will need to restart your terminal. After that typing
will get the current forecast,
wed will get the daily forecast and
weh will get the hourly forecast.
