Yahoo! Weather Widget written in pure QML.

Designed to be reliable and fast.


Please check https://github.com/librehat/com.librehat.yahooweather/blob/master/README.md!

You need to install it using `cmake` if you wish to have localisation support!

* To find your WOEID, there are two ways.
The first one is what I recommend. Go to http://zourbuth.com/tools/woeid/ and type in your city's zip code or name or landmark. Click Lookup then voila!

Another one is included in Yahoo's documentation. Go to browse or search for your city from Yahoo! Weather. The WOEID is in the URL for the forecast page for that city. You can also get the WOEID by entering your zip code on the home page. For example, if you search for Los Angeles on the Weather home page (http://weather.yahoo.com), the forecast page for that city is http://weather.yahoo.com/united-states/california/los-angeles-2442047/. The WOEID is 2442047.

 More details for basic users

Dear dev,
Could you please add more information for basic users on your page to help us install your widget ?
currently having the following issue after installing it from Kubuntu - automated install from UI. Already spent 1 hour searching on google and installing packages manually without success.
file:///home/kyl/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.librehat.yahooweather/contents/ui/main.qml:20:34: Type Weather unavailable
file:///home/kyl/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.librehat.yahooweather/contents/ui/Weather.qml:12:1: module "QtQuick.Layouts" version 1.2 is not installed

That shouldn't be so hard to have a nice weather widget working without having to manually install dependencies from terminal. Let's think about 90% computer users. :)

> Could you please add more information for basic users on your page to help us install your widget ?
You can find this informations on home site of this project. Url (mentioned in description in this site) is following:
In "Installation" you can read, that to install you should run:
plasmapkg2 -i ./com.librehat.yahooweather-5.1.1.plasmoid
for upgrade (if you have already installed older version):
plasmapkg2 -u ./com.librehat.yahooweather-5.1.1.plasmoid
(I changed version to the newest in this moment)

Solution for your issue found in google:
Found using this key words in google: "kubuntu QtQuick.Layouts"
Please run below:
sudo apt-get install qml-module-qtquick-layouts

I also installed following packages:
sudo apt-get install qml-module-qtqml-models2
sudo apt-get install qtdeclarative5-models-plugin

If you need to install all dependencies automatically then you have to ask maintainer of this package in Kubuntu to add this dependencies.

After installation please relogin, and add again this plasmoid to desktop.

Location of Plasmoids installed manually (so like above) is following:
If you want you can remove old plasmoid manually, just removing proper directory.

 Wrong 'Feels Like' Temperature

Could you fix the 'feels like' temperature? :) I think that's not Celsius even though I chose that.
Take a look at the preview picture, it says:
England 11°C, but it feels like 52°C, which would be really hot :D.

As mentioned on GitHub issue: https://github.com/librehat/com.librehat.yahooweather/issues/16
This is a data error from Yahoo! side, but I'll address it in future versions.

I had to install both "qml-module-qtqml-models2 and "qml-model-qtqml-models2" and do a reboot before the installation of that pkg would do anything for the widget.

@hear it's Kubuntu-16.04 plasma-5.5.4 QT-5.5.1

what are you on ?

Running Debian Sid.
The widget does not connect to Yahoo so does not work.

 Bug in temprature

Thank you for this great app. I'm using the last version from master (1559c38285eebaab9a57032a6e2366046d22c2bd). I've noticed there is a bug: if I choose Celsius, the value of "Feels like" is still Fahrenheit. For example if it is 2 Celsius, it is shown as 28 Celsius.

Yes this is a known bug from Yahoo! side. I fixed it by using Fahrenheit and doing conversions myself in trunk. Will release a new version in following weeks along with other improvements. :)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
