Open Weather Map API support

Recently, Yahoo change its API and forcing everyone to use OAuth 1.0 in order to access its data. You may experience empty weather info to Jubito's front-end, as well null responses from relational functions, such %todayconditions%, etc.

I decide to implement the new functionality with openweathermap.org API as the weather data source, which I found it more simple and clear.

So, let's see what you have to do.

1) Register and get your API key
2) Expand Settings and go to Weather->Setup
3) Paste the URL you get including your APPID as a parameter, i.e.:
http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/forecast/city?id=524901&units=metric&APPID={APIKEY}


You're all set. Now you can use some of the old functions, plus, the new ones for humidity and pressure. Find all the function set in GitHub wiki.

Now your dashboard should look like this:
