Yesterday I heard/read from someone about this cool application that would fetch weather information and convert it into a wallpaper that got refreshed every so often. This program is called Weather-Wallpaper!

Since we like cool and simple applications, we quickly packaged it for Foresight Linux but realized that the weather information being displayed was using the metric system. Now, without starting stupid arguments about the fact that the United States uses the imperial system, I took upon myself to add that feature to the still young code.

Since this was written in python, it was pretty straight forward to make the changes for a working prototype. The limitations at this point are strictly limited to the limitations on PyMETAR, an important part of this application… but this can be solved too! I’ve sent my hack, errr… code to the author and if he accepts it, I may even contribute to a configuration window and more! :)
