Unhappy Forecast module dies


Due to recent changes in the yahoo weather API the forecast module no longer works: "As of Thursday, Jan. 3, 2019, the weather.yahooapis.com and query.yahooapis.com for Yahoo Weather API will be retired." It is uncertain when if ever we will get this module back to working. However I have been looking into possible alternatives to the Yahoo weather API. Even if a suitable API is found it is a time consuming task to modify the source code for this module to work with another API. Sorry for any inconvenience but for now the only alternative is not use the module

Yes, I can see the alternative

I can suggest one nice solution for terminal. The only thing you have to install is "curl" tool for data transfer.

for example my sequence for getting the weather is this:
curl sk.wttr.in/Sliac?

Where sk is language (i think)
And Sliac is a town nearby.
The outcome is this:

OK, it is nice but too far from perfection. Unfortunately I posted this solution in old forum so I have to make it again.

So, if you are OK with the terminal solution, just make a command shortcut and that's it.
In case you want something more, you have to configure the key shortcut to switch between main screen and hover screen. I have ALT G. The binding is possible in settings and command is called Show/Hide gadgets. For better understanding I will show some screenshots.
Then install my Stickynotes module called moksha-module-stickynotes. Load the module. Place the gadget on the hover desktop (not background) and setup the module according the command I posted. The mandatory condition is putting "T" char in command for no colors layout.

curl sk.wttr.in/Sliac?T


Now screenshots:
Settings:

Hover screenshot:

Maybe it looks little bit complicated but feel free to ask any question. I will explain more...

Thanks but... well, actually, I was hoping for something more "2019-like", not some old-fashioned Ascii graphics.

Thanks the_waiter for posting this alternative. I think it is a great option, and I look forward to trying to get it to work on my system today. I will post if I have issues. I love CLI tricks and tips used in inventive ways like this one.

Of course, I know Google, too, but I was looking for recommendations, based on personal experiences.

Let's hope other users will add theirs.

gnome-weather perhaps?

There is also conky scripts and stuff but I am not going to look around and find one working for you or create one from scratch. But that is certainly doable.

I don't know of anything else that works but probably there are other options.

In all likelihood I will get the forecast module back to working just am overwhelmed at the moment at all the work on our themes I am doing. Sorry about not just jumping on fixing the forecast module but it currently has lower priority to stefan and I at the moment.
