Raspberry Pi Weather Station (No sensors required)

Software Preview

About This

I wanted to create a Weather Station for my Raspberry Pi. I started tinkering with sensors, but then I realized that "Why not just use an API?" and so I did. I used OpenWeatherMap API to power this application.

Of course, if you wanted to work with sensors, go ahead and make adjustments to the script. The GUI is ready you just need to plug in the sensors and get it running.

Try It Out!

Lets try this application out shall we, first thing you need is an Operating System running on your Raspberry PI. I suggest Raspbian OS. Then make sure its plugged in to a Display and Power it up.

You also need Python Installed, If you are using Raspbian, You already have it installed on your system. Lets just update your system if it hasn't been updated in a while.

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade

Once that is done, type in this command to download piWeatherman from GitHub.

$ git clone https://github.com/abhishtagatya/piWeatherman
$ cd piWeatherman

Now you are in the piWeatherman directory, now we are going to install some of the dependencies and requirements.

$ sh install.sh

You are then greeted with a Registration Form, just fill it in and make sure to get your API Key from OpenWeatherMap and your locality.

For example : Jakarta, Indonesia

Enjoy your awesome weather station! Here is mine :
