Poncho Weather App

Poncho is a dead simple mobile web app for viewing current and next-day weather conditions. It works on Android and iOS, although it's tailored for non-tablet smartphone devices like Android phones, iPhone and iPod Touch. It's a mobile web app instead of a native app, so it may work on even more platforms, but I haven't tested it on anything else. If you go to app.getponcho.com on your device's browser, you can bookmark and/or add the app to your homescreen and run it virtually just like a native app.

It runs mainly on Spine, a lightweight MVC javascript framework for building web applications. Instead of the bloated jQuery, it uses the more lightweight and mobile-geared Zepto framework. It uses YQL (Yahoo Query Language) as the weather API to pull the current weather conditions and also uses HTML5 LocalStorage to store the user's locations. I needed to choose a javascript templating language as an efficient way to display the data. Javascript templates are in Mustache because of it's small size and efficient rendering.
