Short Description
Fork of the wttr.in project with up-to-date patches.
Full Description

This is a web frontend for a console weather application wego, using it as a backend.
You can check it at wttr.in.

Usage

You can access the service from a shell or from a Web browser:

$ curl wttr.in
Weather for City: Paris, France

     \   /     Clear
      .-.      10 – 11 °C     
   ― (   ) ―   ↑ 11 km/h      
      `-’      10 km          
     /   \     0.0 mm         

You can specify the location, for that you want to get the weather information.
If you omit the location name, you will get the information for your current location,
based on your IP address.

$ curl wttr.in/London
$ curl wttr.in/Moscow

You can also use IP-addresses (direct) or domain names (prefixed with @)
as a location specificator:

$ curl wttr.in/@github.com
$ curl wttr.in/@msu.ru

To get this information online, you can access the :help page:

$ curl wttr.in/:help

Installation

To install the program you need:

  1. Install external dependencies
  2. Install python dependencies used by the service
  3. Get Forecast API Key
  4. Configure wego
  5. Configure wttr.in
  6. Configure HTTP-frontend service

Install external dependencies

External requirements:

To install wego you must have golang installed. After that:

go get github.com/schachmat/wego

Install python dependencies

Python requirements:

  • ansi2html
  • Flask
  • geoip2
  • geopy
  • requests
  • gevent

You can install them using pip with this command:

pip install -r requirements.txt`

If virtualenv is used:

virtualenv ve
ve/bin/pip install -r requirements.txt
ve/bin/pip bin/srv.py

Also, you need to install the geoip2 database.
You can use a free database GeoLite2, that can be downloaded from http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/geolite2/

Get Forecast key

To get the Forecast API key, you must register here:

https://developer.forecast.io/

Configure wego

After you have the key, configure wego:

$ cat ~/.wegorc 
backend=forecast.io
forecast-api-key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

These are the only configuration values that need to be provided, the rest will be filled out by wego automatically.

Configure wttr.in

Configure the following environment variables specifing the path to the local wttr.in
installation, to the GeoLite database and to the wego installation. For example:

WTTR_MYDIR = "/home/igor/wttr.in"
WTTR_GEOLITE = "/home/igor/wttr.in/GeoLite2-City.mmdb"
WTTR_WEGO = "/home/igor/go/bin/wego"

Configure HTTP-frontend service

Configure the web server, that will be used
to access the service (if you want to use a web frontend; it's recommended):

server {
    listen [::]:80;
    server_name  wttr.in *.wttr.in;
    access_log  /var/log/nginx/wttr.in-access.log  main;
    error_log  /var/log/nginx/wttr.in-error.log;

    location / {
        proxy_pass         http://127.0.0.1:8002;

        proxy_set_header   Host             $host;
        proxy_set_header   X-Real-IP        $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-For  $remote_addr;

        client_max_body_size       10m;
        client_body_buffer_size    128k;

        proxy_connect_timeout      90;
        proxy_send_timeout         90;
        proxy_read_timeout         90;

        proxy_buffer_size          4k;
        proxy_buffers              4 32k;
        proxy_busy_buffers_size    64k;
        proxy_temp_file_write_size 64k;

        expires                    off;
    }
