Introduction

sopel-weather is a weather lookup plugin for Sopel.

Since Yahoo deprecated their weather API on January 3, 2019, a reimplementation of the weather plugin was necessary

Installing

If possible, use pip to install this plugin. Below are example commands; you might need to add sudo and/or call a different pip (e.g. pip3) depending on your system and environment. Do not use setup.py install; Sopel won't be able to load the plugin correctly.

Published release

pip install sopel-modules.weather

From source

Clone the repo, then run this in /path/to/sopel-weather

pip install .

Configuring

You can automatically configure this plugin using the sopel configure --plugins command.

However, if you want or need to configure this plugin manually, you will need to define the following in ~/.sopel/default.cfg

[weather]
geocoords_provider = GEOCOORDS_PROVIDER
geocoords_api_key = GEOCOORDS_API_KEY
weather_provider = WEATHER_PROVIDER
weather_api_key = WEATHER_API_KEY

Requirements

Modern weather APIs require Latitude & Longitude as inputs to their APIs, so we need to leverage a GeoCoords API to convert location searches to coordinates.
