Project-Readme for this version

wego is a weather client for the terminal.

##Features

Screenshots

  • show forecast for 1 to 7 days
  • nice ASCII art icons
  • displayed info (metric or imperial units):
    • temperature
    • windspeed and direction
    • viewing distance
    • precipitation amount and probability
  • ssl, so the NSA has a harder time learning where you live or plan to go
  • multi language support
  • config file for default location which can be overridden by commandline
  • Automatic config management with ingo

##Dependencies

  • A working Go 1.5 environment (You can use goenv if your distribution does not support Go 1.5 yet)
  • utf-8 terminal with 256 colors
  • A sane monospaced font containing all the required runes (I use dejavu sans mono)
  • An API key for the backend (see Setup below)

##Installation

To install or update the wego binary into your $GOPATH as usual, run:

go get -u github.com/schachmat/wego

##Setup

  1. Run wego once. You will get an error message, but the .wegorc config file will be generated in your $HOME directory (it will be hidden in some file managers due to the filename starting with a dot).
  2. __With a forecast.io account__ (new default)
    • Create your account on https://developer.forecast.io/register
    • Update the following .wegorc config variables to fit your needs: backend=forecast.io location=40.748,-73.985 forecast-api-key=YOUR_FORECAST.IO_API_KEY_HERE
  3. With a Worldweatheronline account
    • Worldweatheronline no longer gives out free API keys. #83
    • Update the following .wegorc config variables to fit your needs: backend=worldweatheronline.com location=New York wwo-api-key=YOUR_WORLDWEATHERONLINE_API_KEY_HERE
  4. You may want to adjust other preferences like days, units and …-lang as well. Save the file.
  5. Run wego once again and you should get the weather forecast for the current and next few days for your chosen location.
  6. If you’re visiting someone in e.g. London over the weekend, just run wego 4 London or wego London 4 (the ordering of arguments makes no difference) to get the forecast for the current and the next 3 days. Unfortunately that does not currently work with the forecast.io backend, as it only supports latitude,longitude location specification.

You can set the $WEGORC environment variable to override the default config file location.
