Suggestions:

  • !wx as shorthand for !weather
  • ability to set locales so !wx without any arguments gives you the weather where you live
  • ability to query the weather of other users, ex: !wx jesusabdullah

Do you know of a weather service with a nice web API? Restful, soapy, whatever?

Consider this lib and this bit of yql.

Also consider: ☼ ☾☁ ☔ ❄ AWESOME

Looks like a good way to query the weather! Unicode is also highly excellent.

Just an update on the status of this issue:

  • !wx as shorthand for !weather: done
  • ability to set locales so !wx without any arguments gives you the weather where you live: not done--Would require some persistence. Not impossible, though, or even necessarily hard.
  • ability to query the weather of other users, ex: !wx jesusabdullah: not done -- setting locales is basically a prereq.
