Weather (DARKSKY API) reach the limitation!

Thu Jun 04, 2020 9:49 pm

Guys , the weather is not showing anymore in the Dashboard View , such we have reach the limitation (1000 calls every day) in the DARKSPY API

From DarkSky site:
You get 1,000 API calls for free each day. After that, we prorate each additional call at a rate of $0.0001 per call. The counter resets every day at midnight UTC. As long as you make fewer than 1,000 calls each day, the API is free.


so i have two options , or i will find another alternative good weather API with more free calls , or i will pay for the extra calls after 1000.

Let me know what do you think - or if you know any other good weather API with more free calls -

Hey 0raid,

Afaik, DarkSky is closing anyway, so you/we have to find another way to pull the weather..

https://blog.darksky.net/ here is the link!

I keep my eyes open for another weather api!

Thank you for letting us know about this!

I just looked a little bit around and found an interesting site:

https://rapidapi.com/

you can test the api of different sites there, and also some weather providers.

For me Open Weather Map looks the best, you can enter the coordinates or the name of your city, and also can change the language of the output.

Looks like OpenWeatherMap - has 60 calls/minute = 1,000,000 calls/month for their FREE service - 40$ a month for their 1st tier of paid, allowing 600 calls/minute = 10,000,000 calls/month. https://openweathermap.org/price

Yes, but with actual 1000 calls/day we hit 31000calls/month and that's enough. Also 0raid could lower the rate of requests?
