When I was finished with Serenum API, I started over with the website Serenum to show the data from the API with style.
All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!

I will prepare to make the move to met.no while waiting for their reply to the same question. Hopefully, they will not log as much or better yet, nothing at all.
Edit OpenWeatherMap have now replied to my email to them where I asked what they logged when calling their API. And they do log a lot! IP addresses, location, operating system, and more.
Do you use https://www.met.no/en as source which is Libre at all or you use some propietary source?
This is used by GNOME Weather application as well as some weather Android apps such as https://f-droid.org/packages/uk.org.boddie.android.weatherforecast/
Ah, self-reply: still dependent on the propietary "Open"WeatherMap service.
Sorry for a late reply.
And regarding the API at met.no. I didn’t knew YR was FOSS :O Really good! Will take a closer look into it!
However, it is unclear if YR log anything from when using their API (source: https://hjelp.yr.no/hc/en-us/articles/360003337614-Privacy-policy). This applies to OWM as well. I’ll wait for their reply over email before I decide to switch or not.
Many thanks for telling me this! :D
Edit: After reviewing api.met.no’s locationforecast, I will email them to ask what they log when calling their API. If they say that they do not log anything, I might choose YR over OWM, no matter what OWM says.
Maybe you saw something I didn’t but the few mentions I saw for yr.no were about using met.no data.
The API in question would be available in https://api.met.no/ got from https://www.met.no/en/free-meteorological-data/Download-services section.
Sounds like met.no is a different services than YR. I did send them an rmail yesterday. We’ll see what they say, but I do really like their API. So I might make the switch even if they log something when calling their API.
They even mention yr.no to be some derivative in that page:
Additionally, in their blog they mention that they provide(d) their own service different from met.no at https://hjelp.yr.no/hc/en-us/articles/360001940793-Free-weather-data-service-from-Yr
All I need now, is a Home Assistant integration.
Good idea! I have added it to the kanboard and will see what I can do 🙂 Thanks!
I like it.
Pardon my ignorance, but how does this differ from using some weather API directly?
I understand you, but I built Serenum API for a reason 🙂 You can find the reason here: https://lemmy.ml/post/178528/comment/124647
Please note that the pollen data have been removed from the API due to complications with Ambee.
This is really cool and useful! I’ll be using this! Thank you
Very nice 👏👏👏
@airikr Seems very cool, I will probably use it if I ever make a program thay needs weather data!
