Important Notes

  • This is my first project using Node, so feel free to submit pull requests or post on the issues/wiki and I will do my best to improve the project.

  • Right now the data for warnings comes from the Deutsche Wetterdienst. So the warnings are only available for germany. If you find an similar API for other countries, feel free to give me a hint or to implement this API in this module yourself.

  • Because it's only data for germany, i did not translate any of the warnings to english. Also feel free to do that.

Special Thanks
