  • Hi all,
    I apologize for the silly question but this thing is making me crazy.
    I would like to have a weather forecast with more than 5 days but when I set the option in the config I only can see the sam amount of days. Can you tell me where’s my mistake? Here’s my code:

    var config = {
    	address: "localhost", // Address to listen on, can be:
    	                      // - "localhost", "127.0.0.1", "::1" to listen on loopback interface
    	                      // - another specific IPv4/6 to listen on a specific interface
    	                      // - "", "0.0.0.0", "::" to listen on any interface
    	                      // Default, when address config is left out, is "localhost"
    	port: 8080,
    	ipWhitelist: ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1"], // Set [] to allow all IP addresses
    	                                                       // or add a specific IPv4 of 192.168.1.5 :

    Another question: I would have liked to try the Wunderground module but it seems that there’s no way in getting a free api, can you confirm it? Is there a way to obtain it and to get the module work?
    Thanks again mates.

    Can you tell me where’s my mistake? Here’s my code:

    maxNumberOfDays: "10"

    Get rid of the quotes:

    maxNumberOfDays: 10

    Take a better look at the wunderground site. I’m pretty sure the basic membership with API key is still available



  • @mykle1 Thank you so much mate, you always give precious advices. I tried in the wunderground site to get a free api but there’s a statement in which the say they won’t give free api anymore. Could you make a check for me? Is there another way to obtain it? Thanks again.



  • i got an api key the other day without any trouble. just have to login and go to key settings…

  • @sdetweil It’s strange because every time I try to get an api key I find myself in this page:
    https://www.wunderground.com/weather/api
    There’s no way in obtaining the api, I don’t know where the problem is… Can someone help me?



  • This post is deleted!


  • @hriereb i see… i created a new userid and see the same thing… IBM now owns this stuff and has decided not to provide free api access anymore… what a shame…



  • @sdetweil Have you tried to get a meteoblue api? I can’t even get that kind of api despite a normal subscription.
