- WEATHER DATA: Acquire your FREE API key and replace the default key in /js/weather.js : LINE 11 https://home.openweathermap.org/users/sign_up
var weatherApi = 'https://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?callback=?';
- TICKER DATA: You will need to create your own FREE feed.mikle ticker widget where you can customize your news sources and style. To do so, go to https://feed.mikle.com and replicate the settings of the screenshot image "/img/feedmikle.jpg" located in this repo. You will then have your own custom ticker widget URL which you will then input into index.html as outlined below.
