OpenWeatherLite

Build Status

Simple ruby wrapper for the OpenWeatherMap api. The only hard requirements for this client is to register for an api key. This project intentionally does not implement all of the api endpoints to keep it light. Inspiration came from using it on a raspberry pi to ping the current weather state every 30 seconds.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'openweatherlite'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install openweatherlite

Example

  weather = OpenWeatherLite::Weather.new('api_key')
  weather.by_zip_code(60606)
