Weather Sparklines for Adium

This is an Adium Xtra script that uses the Forecast.io API to draw a sparkline of the forecasted temperature for the next 24 hours.

Usage

Assuming you already have Adium, download the Weather Sparklines.AdiumScript. (Since it’s actually a directory, you’re probably best off downloading the .zip from Github.)

Before you can use it, you need to get an API key from Forecast.io. Once you have that, double-click Weather Sparklines.AdiumScript to install it.

Next, get your latitude and longitude. There’s a Google Maps Labs tool to do this.

Finally, set your status message to /wxtemp{LAT LON YOURAPIKEY}. Note the spaces between the latitude, longitude, and API key.

I deliberately made the sparkline only 8 characters long instead of the 9 that will properly show up in the Gmail web interface so you can add commentary without having the ellipsis cut off the graph.

Details

This probably isn’t really robust enough for a public release, so I’m just throwing it out here.
