wthrr lives in your terminal and her passion is meteorology.

If you spend time in the TUI, you'll have a little companion nearby who knows about the weather.


How to use?

Just call


Without having added an address or options, wthrr uses the config saved as default.
If you haven't configured anything as default yet, wthrr can try to search for a weather station near you and save the searched location as default.

It's always possible to specify an address. E.g.,

wthrr melbourne

Depending on the place you are looking for, you might need to be more specific. For example, the above call will get Melbourne in Australia. If you are aiming for Melbourne in the US, ask for melbourne,florida. If the address contains spaces, separate them with a hyphen or enclose them in quotation marks (e.g., new-york or "new york").

To search explicitly for a weather station in the vicinity, call

wthrr auto

As a final example, we instruct wthrr to use Fahrenheit and mph as units and add the hourly forecast for the day

wthrr -u f,mph -f d

First Run Hourly Forecast
Week Forecast *Terminal Colors

*Rendering and colors are influenced by the terminal used and its theme and font.
E.g., the first of the above screenshots show wthrr in nvim(toggleterm) using kitty as terminal with a Dracula theme and JetBrainsMono Nerd font. The last screenshot shows wthrr in Yakuake/Konsole, also with a Dracula color scheme.


The address, units and default forecast can be saved as default values in wthrr's config file by adding the -s flag to a run. This will save the config in wthrr.ron.
