Can I Go Outside Yet?
01 July, 2017
Originally, my idea was that it would send a notification via email each time an API responded with a southerly wind at the Bureau of Meteorology’s Sydney Airport weather station on a given day.
I quickly realised IP based geolocation in HTML5 was now accurate enough to get you somewhat accurate weather forecasting using www.wunderground.com, so I quickly figured out how to use their API for a fun little weather app.
On the technical implementation side, I wrote a simple router in Angular to switch between tabs in the app, and used leaflet and markercluster libraries to display weather stations over a map of Australia.
