Introduction

This page will be used as an information center for Weather applet and its Ions. Currently there is not much information available, but feel free to add whatever you think belongs here.

Development

Ideas

Feel free to add ideas about anything Weather engine or applet specific.

- Geolocation for initial startup configuration.

Rather than always requiring the user to specify their location, a good approximation can be gained automatically, if the approximation is reasonable this can be used as the default location. In the event the approximation is invalid, the current behavior would be used. The approximation can be made using data sources such as the current locale (en_GB), ip based geolocation etc. Even a rough guess that only gets the country is a decent start.

Possible weather sources
