EasyWeather – Many Weather Services, One Bright Engine

Many weather services, one bright engine

EasyWeather 1.4 is a lightweight and versatile jQuery plugin displaying weather information for any location.
Its compact size and numerous options make it perfectly suitable for providing local weather information in portals, websites, blogs and apps.

How it works

EasyWeather is an amazing plugin that unifies different weather sources in one tiny widget.
It currently works with 2 weather providers but it is designed to work with an unlimited
number of sources. It implements a cascading fallback mechanism ensuring data is retrieved even if
a provider is down or the consumer itself is throttled by a service. If the first provider fails to
return the requested information, EasyWeather will contact the next one to maximise the availability
of the service. EasyWeather’s engine uses the same mechanism to detect users location and it
currently supports 2 different geolocation services.
