Authentication

After signing up at the dahsboard, you will get your access token. In below sections, we will use a temporary token for demo purpose: S45Fnpxcwyq0QT4b. In production or development, you should use your own.

API request

We support json and jsonp

Parameters

API response

To understand the API response better, you should know the control parameter granuand all the variables.

Parameter granu in request

granu is a short code for temporal granularity, it is the request parameter to control which part of data will show in the result. The default value is realtime,minutely,hourly,daily, and you can set any one or a combinations of below four code: realtime, minutely, hourly, daily.

The supported variables

All the supported variables are physical variables on or near earth's surface

  • temperature
  • precipitation: a group of variables
  • wind: speed and direction
  • humidity: relative humidity
  • pressure
  • cloud coverage
  • visibility: horizontal visibility on earth's surface
  • dswrf: downward shortwave radiation flux
  • air quality group: including aqi, pm25 and others
  • life index group: indicators for comfort or not, or status of ultraviolet radiation

and also skycon

  • skycon: it is a collection of short descriptive code of weather phenomenon on earth surface introduce by DarkSky and was released into public domain.

The heading part

The heading part gives you basic settings of the API response, it is the start point of any weather calculation.

yaml
status: ok                    # API response status
api_version: v2.5             # API version
api_status: active            # API status: alpha, beta, active, deprecated
lang: en_US                   # The i18n language parameter in response, supported languages are include en_US, en_GB, zh_CN, zh_TW, ja
unit: imperial                # The i18n unit parameter in response, supported unit system are include metric, imperial and SI
tzshift: -14400               # Timezone shift measured in seconds
timezone: America/New_York    # Timezone
server_time: 1585894300       # Server time measured in unix timestamp or total seconds from 1970-01-01 00:00:00
location:
- 40.7128                     # The requested latitude
- -74.006                     # The requested longitude

You should notice that this API are latitude-longitude based, we do not support city-based queries.

The real-time part in result

This part of result will show when realtime is in granu parameters.
