Hmmmm, what's this?

Man, I wish I was sure you were doing a Dark Sky plugin, I wouldn't have started my own "Louisiana Weather Plugin". However, you are welcome to build off my current code:
Code: Select all
statesToUpdate = []
statesToUpdate.add({ 'key' : u'currentTemp', 'value' : u'Hot as sh!t' })
statesToUpdate.add({ 'key' : u'currentHumidity', 'value' : u'Dripping. Wet.' } )
statesToUpdate.add({ 'key' : u'currentWeatherDescription', 'value' : u'It's hot. Damn hot! Real hot! Hottest things is my shorts. I could cook things in it. A little crotch pot cooking.' })

if datetime.datetime.today().weekday() or datetime.datetime.today().weekend():
    statesToUpdate.add({ 'key' : u'chanceOfRain', 'value' : u'100%' } )
else:
    statesToUpdate.add({ 'key' : u'chanceOfRain', 'value' : u'Probably 100%' } )

if datetime.date.today() >= datetime.date(2019, 1, 6) and datetime.date.today() <= datetime.date(2019, 1, 7):
     statesToUpdate.add({ 'key' : u'season', 'value' : u'Winter. Ish.' } )
else:
    statesToUpdate.add({ 'key' : u'season', 'value' : u'Summer' } )

I don't even want to think about what the control page icon would be to display that.

At least some changes are being made. I think their original plan has backfired on them; in that you would have to pay a hefty monthly price. Notice that they killed off new developers when they stopped issuing API keys. Now they are going to offer something to developers and to the people who provide the data. This change tells me that the original plan wasn't well received at all.


Since there are no details, anything is just speculation. I'm guessing they're going to try to keep this as quiet (therefore the "we'll contact you") as possible to reduce the outrage, but that nothing is really going to change. IBM isn't interested in consumers directly.

Thanks for the update Korey. This sounds promising:

For developers who use WU API data for non-commercial purposes, you will have access to a new plan for a personal use, low call volume API. Stay tuned for more details as we build this out.


I have to agree with Jay that the proof is in the pudding. Until we know what "low call" means, we're only left to guess.

In the spirit of managing expectations, until I see what the "new" API looks like and what the service plan is, I can't commit to re-supporting the WU architecture. For now, FUWU is where it's at. The WU plugin "suite" will still be available on GitHub but will--for now--remain out of the Indigo Plugin Store because WU is not offering new API keys.

Thanks for the report. I'm not a PWS owner, so I haven't been watching this.
