It’s day 5 of the Ubuntu Core Apps Hack Days! We’ve seen a tremendous amount of work coming into the Core Apps, and have several new contributors joining the initiative. We’re keeping that momentum going throughout the week in #ubuntu-app-devel on Freenode from 9am to 9pm UTC, so come and be a part of this exciting project.
Today we’ll turn our attention to the Weather application, another one of the original Core Apps, and another one that is already largely complete. The Weather app gained multi-city support and a long range forecast early on, and has more recently added the ability to toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature displays. Between those, it met all of the criteria we set for dogfooding:
- Choose a location to view weather from. DONE!
- View current weather conditions. DONE!
- View a 10 day forecast. DONE!
- Configure C or F and display that chosen setting for all locations. DONE!
