OpenWeatherMapAPI

Open Weather Map iOS API

This projects allows you to quickly and easily fetch data from openweathermap.org.

API Changes

Version 0.0.5

The methods for getting the daily forecast have changed names. So instead of: dailyForecastWeatherByCityName:withCount:withCallback: they are now called: dailyForecastWeatherByCityName:withCount:andCallback:

Added new methods for setting the lang parameter to the api:

 - (void) setLangWithPreferedLanguage;
 - (void) setLang:(NSString *) lang;
 - (NSString *) lang;

The method setLangWithPreferedLanguage sets the lang parameter according to the prefered language on the phone.

Usage

Installation

Using the API is really simple if you have CocoaPods installed.

  1. Add the dependency to your Podfile

    pod 'OpenWeatherMapAPI', '~> 0.0.4'
  2. Include the header #import "OWMWeatherAPI.h".

  3. Setup the api:

    // Setup weather api
    OWMWeatherAPI *weatherAPI = [[OWMWeatherAPI alloc] initWithAPIKey:@"YOUR-API-KEY"];
  4. Select the default temperature format (defaults to Celsius)

    [weatherAPI setTemperatureFormat:kOWMTempCelcius];

Getting data

The api is at this time just simple wrapper for the http-api. So to get the current weather for the city Odense you can call it like this:

[weatherAPI currentWeatherByCityName:@"Odense" withCallback:^(NSError *error, NSDictionary *result) {
    if (error) {
        // handle the error
        return;
    }

    // The data is ready

    NSString *cityName = result[@"name"];
    NSNumber *currentTemp = result[@"main"][@"temp"];

}]

The result data is a NSDictionary that looks like this (json):

    {
        coord: {
            lon: 10.38831,
            lat: 55.395939
        },
        sys: {
            country: "DK",
            sunrise: 1371695759, // this is an NSDate
            sunset: 1371758660   // this is also converted to a NSDate
        },
        weather: [
            {
                id: 800,
                main: "Clear",
                description: "Sky is Clear",
                icon: "01d"
            }
        ],
        base: "global stations",
        main: {
            temp: 295.006,      // this is the the temperature format you´ve selected
            temp_min: 295.006,  //                 --"--
            temp_max: 295.006,  //                 --"--
            pressure: 1020.58,
            sea_level: 1023.73,
            grnd_level: 1020.58,
            humidity: 80
        },
        wind: {
            speed: 6.47,
            deg: 40.0018
        },
        clouds: {
            all: 0
        },
        dt: 1371756382,
        id: 2615876,
        name: "Odense",
        cod: 200
    }
