Welcome to Weather!
This is something I've been working on to get familiar with the new behaviors. There aren't a lot of features yet, HOWEVER I'm adding more soon!!!

Right now units are just auto based on the location, but when I complete the "options" menu, there will be a list of units to choose from. There will also be a list of languages to pick from, and more!
As for actual weather features, I still have some things such as cloud cover, visibility, humidity and more to add. There will also be forecasts and weather alerts. I'm not sure yet but I might add time machine requests where you can get the weather for a past, present, or future date.

IMPORTANT: since this is only a "test" project, I'm not paying for unlimited API calls. So please don't over use it! Especially the location finder.
NOTE: you may get a huge decimal with the temp or something. I'M WORKING ON FIXING IT!

VERSION 1.3

Last Updated: March 24, 2017

Fixed the long decimals. Let me know if it is still happening!
I haven't had time to work on this lately, but I WILL finish it soon!

How did you get the API?

March 25, 2017

I just searched on google. There's lots to choose from, but I like this one! There are a lot of features I haven't completed yet! The only thing is that this one only accepts Latitude and longitude for getting the weather, so I had to use another API to search locations and get the latitude and longitude to use with the weather API. I think I found it through programmable web, and I'm pretty sure you can find lots of different ones there. The location searching API is called map quest.

March 25, 2017

Btw the one I used has limited API calls unless you pay, but there are some completely free ones like open weather map.

Did you use the Blue Sky API? Also, can you post the API link? (Not to promote exploitation, but to give an API example for integration.

March 25, 2017

Forgot the last parentheses!

March 25, 2017

It's called dark sky. I can't post my link because it has the key for my account with dark sky and I'm not allowed to share it. But the documentation on the website will show you how.

Last question. All APIs can be used with HyperPad, no?

March 25, 2017

I don't know for sure, better question for hyperpad!

Love this!

Thanks!

I think new behaviours led to new ideas.I havent had the chance to have a look at them,they seemed a bit confusing to me.do you know after last update is it possible to create a score ranking for games?

March 25, 2017

Thanks for liking! What do you mean by score ranking? If you mean like leaderboards, yes! The socket.io behaviors are for multi player too! I'm hoping to make a game with them soon.

Has anyone had it give them a big decimal? Just curios cuz I'm trying to get it fixed!

March 18, 2017

Yeah I got a crazy decimal but I went out and then in it was normal I think you can fix this with the round number behaviour.

March 18, 2017

Thanks for letting me know. The problem is actually that I'm dividing the round number and it gives a huge decimal sometimes. I can't us the round behavior again, because the reason I divided by 10 was to move the decimal place. I think I have a different way to fix t though. Th also for liking!

Your Welcome

What are the units for wind speed? I tried the weather app, looked for an Australia time and found only one and it seemed a bit strange (like the location within Australia was a space), told me the temperature was 24 (is this celcius?) and wind speed was 24 (m/s?) south. Siri said temperature was 24°C (weather app got that right 🙂) and wind speed was 5km/h WSW.

Thanks for commenting! Currently, the units are automatically based on the location you pick, so I don't know what they are for you. As for the location searching, I have it showing the country, state, and city. If you search for something and it doesn't find it, it will just give a country only result(so it will look like , ,US or something) I could have it leave out those results or something, but maybe people want to check the weather for a whole country, who knows lol 😂 . For best results, you should type at least country, state and city, but you could also type your zip code, and even your street address if I remember right. For more well known cities, like London, you can just type "london" and the first choice is London England. The location search is actually a separate API from the weather one...the weather API I chose only supports coordinates to get weather, so I used a map API to get the coordinates for locations, to use in the weather API call.

March 11, 2017

If you read the description, you'll see that there is going to be options for the units. And language options. And maybe more!

March 11, 2017

Ok I just tried searching "Australia" and got just , , AU. The API searches for what you search..and there is only one Australia so that's all you get. The I searched a county in Mn and got ,Mn,US. So basically what ever level of detail you give it, it returns results of the same detail. Now it returns more detail than I display(for space sake) like country, state, county, city p, and maybe even street. Btw you can also search with your country code. So you can add as much detail as you like.

QUESTION: should I add settings for how much(and what) info about the location is displayed?

March 16, 2017

You could do that, but focus on humidity and wind speed and all of that stuff first. Simple features, then special adjustments.

March 16, 2017

Yeah....thanks for liking!
