Short Description
Fork of Ansiweather with Dockerfile.
Full Description


AnsiWeather is a Shell script for displaying the current weather conditions in your
terminal, with support for ANSI colors and Unicode symbols.

Weather data comes from the OpenWeatherMap free weather API.


AnsiWeather requires the following dependencies :

  • A command to fetch HTTP data such as FTP, cURL or wget
  • jq (lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor)
  • bc (arbitrary precision numeric processing language), for doing float arithmetic


After cloning the repository, simply invoke the script by typing :


AnsiWeather packages are available for :


pkg_add ansiweather

Pkgsrc (NetBSD, SmartOS, Mac OS X, etc.)

pkgin install ansiweather


pkg install ansiweather


apt-get install ansiweather

Homebrew (Mac OS X)

brew install ansiweather


docker build -t ansiweather .
docker run -it ansiweather

In case no location is specified, AnsiWeather will fallback to the default location.

Example : Rzeszow,PL
