Cute, minimal weather app - also known as Weather.exe

Ok, but what is it?

Weather started as a little side project of mine. It's an app built in Electron, powered by OpenWeatherMap.

How to run it?

  1. First of all, you have to supply your OpenWeatherMap api key (you can find it here) and your city name to index.html (lines 33, 34) and main.js (lines 73, 74) - the tutorial is here

  2. Then, run npm install in the project directory.

  3. Now, package Weather using electron-packager . --icon assets/icon.png

  4. Run the Weather.exe or, if You are on Mac,

If You just want to preview it, just download the already built package here!

What can it do?

Currently not much. Weather lives in system tray waiting for you to open it. It only displays current temperature, pressure, humidity, min - max temperature and wind speed.
