A command line weather tool
You’ve spent hours, days, months, maybe years customizing your terminal. And yet so many things draw your attention away from it.
GONE are the days of wasting non-terminal moments looking up the current weather! Now, ask your terminal:
$ weather portland,me It’s 6° and light snow
Thank you, terminal–I think I will spend more time inside with you.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MOAR!!
You can now set your location as an environment variable
WEATHER and never have to type that query again!
$ export WEATHER=portland,me && weather It’s 6° and light snow $ weather It’s 6° and light snow
The query you pass in will override the environment variable, though, so you can still check how people in less-fortunate climates are faring:
$ export WEATHER=portland,me && weather “los angeles,ca” It’s 76° and sunny
Live in one of those metric countries, you say? No problem!
$ weather “tokyo,jp” –units celsius It’s 8° and sky is clear
And units can be saved as an environment variable
WEATHER_UNITS as well:
$ export WEATHER_UNITS=celsius && weather It’s -8° and sky is clear
Or maybe you prefer pretty pictures. Get it, with
$ weather tokyo,jp –iconify 55°☀

$ weather -h
Installation couldn’t be easier:
$ pip install weathercli
(This is, of course, after you’ve run
easy_install pip and
pip install --upgrade pip. Simple!)
