Welcome to my new Weather Widget Project.
A weather widget is a application that can be downloaded on your PC, laptop or a mobile device and perform the job of providing easy access to weather information.But I was always trying to make something different.So I go through the internet to get some ideas.After few days of my work, finally I made it.I am sharing this so that any one can make it easily.
This is an ESP8266 based Weather Display unit which retrieve localized weather information from http://www.wunderground.com/ by WLAN and display it on a 128×64 OLED Display.
The Widget display following things
1. Current Time with Date
2. Current Day Weather Information like Temperature,Pressure,Humidity and Rain fall.
3. Future forecasting for 3 days
I would like to give credit to my friend Dani Eichhorn who did all of the programming parts.He is updating the software on his Github page regularly with new features.You can visit SquixTechBlog to see more projects on ESP8266.
