Release Android Arsenal

Non-official API wrapper of OpenWeatherMap.org for Android made with Retrofit 2.0

Add to your project build.gradle

allprojects {
	repositories {
		...
		maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
	}
}

Add to your app module build.gradle

dependencies {
        compile 'com.github.zurche:open-weather-map-android-wrapper:v0.1'
}

Also remember to add the INTERNET permission in your Manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>

Check a usage example of this library here: https://github.com/zurche/color-weather

The wrapper currently supports the following endpoints of OpenWeatherMap API:

OWService setup

To use the API you need a valid OpenWeatherMap API KEY, once you get it you are able to setup and create your OWService object:

private OWService mOWService = new OWService("<YOUR API KEY GOES HERE>");

You can configure it with the desired language and metric units in which you need the forecast temperatures retrieved:

mOWService.setLanguage(getActivity().getResources().getConfiguration().locale);
mOWService.setMetricUnits(OWSupportedUnits.METRIC);

five-day forecast

To retrieve 5 Days Forecast the library populates the ExtendedWeather object with the retrieved information. To set the location you need to get the weather forecast create a Coor object with the desired Lat/Lon value:

Coord coordinate = new Coord();
coordinate.setLat(-31.42);
coordinate.setLon(-64.18);

mOWService.getFiveDayForecast(coordinate, new OWRequestListener<ExtendedWeather>() {
      @Override
      public void onResponse(OWResponse<ExtendedWeather> response) {
          ExtendedWeather extendedWeather = response.body();
          //Do something with the object here!
      }

      @Override
      public void onFailure(Throwable t) {
          Log.e(TAG, "Five Day Forecast request failed: " + t.getMessage());
      }
  });

current-day forecast

To get the current day forecast you also need to send the Coord object with the Lat/Lon pair of the location to retrieve the weather from and the library will respond with a CurrentWeather object populated with the temperature information:

Coord coordinate = new Coord();
coordinate.setLat(-31.42);
coordinate.setLon(-64.18);

mOWService.getCurrentDayForecast(coordinate, new OWRequestListener<CurrentWeather>() {
    @Override
    public void onResponse(OWResponse<CurrentWeather> response) {
        CurrentWeather currentWeather = response.body();
        //Do something with the object here!
    }

    @Override
    public void onFailure(Throwable t) {
        Log.e(TAG, "Current Day Forecast request failed: " + t.getMessage());
    }
});
