Documentation

WeatherWidget.io provides an easy, interactive interface which you can use to build and customize a weather widget for any website. Following you can find a description for all available fields of this interface.

Setting Description
Select Location

Search for the location for which you would like a weather widget. The location can be a country, city, village or area.

Required: Yes

Location Label 1

The first line of the label, e.g. the name of location. You can type anything you like, but try to keep it short (preferably less than 15 characters)

Required: No

Location Label 2

The second line of the label. You can type anything you like, but try to keep it short (preferably less than 15 characters)

Required: No

Language

The language of the weather widget. 20 languages currently supported.

Required: Yes

Units

You can select either International units (SI) with temperatures shown in degrees Celsius, or USA units with temperatures shown in degrees Fahrenheit.

Required: Yes Default: International

Option Description
Font

Select a font for the widget. Two types of fonts are available: (1) Stacks with "web safe" font-families, i.e. fonts that are usually found on most operating systems, and (2) Google fonts. For the "web safe" fonts only the first font of the stack is shown and if a user doesn't have installed on his/her system this font, then a fallback will be used.

Required: No Default: Tahoma

Icon Set

Three different icon sets are currently available. They are all SVG and will therefore always look sharp. One of the icon sets is animated.

Required: No Default: Iconvault

Current / Forecast

The weather widget can display the current weather, a weather forecast for the next few days, or both the current weather and the weather forecast.

Required: No Default: Both

Forecast Days

The number of days to be shown in the weather forecast (not applicable when only the current weather is displayed)

Required: No Default: 7

Theme Type Description
Flat

Themes made exclusively with flat colors. No gradients and no images are used. All colors can be customized in the "Customize" tab.

Gradient

A gradient is used on the background of these themes. You can change the color of the gradient by changing the "Background" color in the "Customize" tab. By adjusting the opacity of the "Background" color you can show more or less of the gradient effect.

Pattern

A small repeating image is used as the background of these themes. Adding a "Background" color in the "Customize" tab will hide the background image but you can still add a "Background" color with a lower opacity to create a "colorize" effect over the image pattern.

Image

A large image is used as the background of these themes. Adding a "Background" color in the "Customize" tab will hide the background image but you can still add a "Background" color with a lower opacity to create a "colorize" effect over the image.

Weather Conditions

A single "Weather Conditions" theme is currently available. This displays a different background image and colors according to the current weather. Please note that you can not customize the colors of this theme.

Color name Description
All

The colors can be set by either typing any valid color in an input field, or by clicking the color swatch next to the field and selecting a color using the color picker. Note that the rightmost column on the color picker selects the opacity.

Background

The background color of the widget. With an image based theme the background color is usually removed so that the image behind it can be seen. You can also make the background, semi-transparent by lowering its opacity in order to blend and colorize whatever lies behind it.

Required: No Default: None

Accent

This is the color background for all the odd forecast day columns (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7). Setting this to a color (e.g. black or white) with low opacity makes it easy to blend the accent with the background color.

Required: No Default: None

Text

The text color is used for the location labels, the current temperature, the current weather description and the day names. It is also used as the default color for all text and icon colors.

Required: No Default: #000000 (black)

High Temp

The color for the high temperature.

Required: No Default: Text color

Low Temp

The color for the low temperature.

Required: No Default: Text color

Shadow

The color for the drop shadow behind text and icons. This is sometimes useful to visually separate the text and icons from the background (most useful when the background is an image or when text and icons have a similar color to the background)

Required: No Default: none

Sun

The color of the sun in the icons.

Required: No Default: Text color

Moon

The color of the moon in the icons.

Required: No Default: Text color
