This is a <strong>C# (.NET 6)</strong> library that provides simple means of obtaining weather data from the OpenWeatherMap's API.

There are two <strong>asynchronous</strong> methods which return an Object containing all the weather data for a given city: Current weather data:

GetCurrentWeather(string city, string units)

Weather forecast data:

GetWeatherForecast(string city, string units)
GetWeatherForecast(double lat, double lon, string units)


In order for the library to work you need to have an <strong>appsettings.json</strong> file containing your OpenWeatherMap's API KEY in your project's output directory with the following parameter:

  "openWeatherApiKey": "YourKeyGoesHere"

Example usage

using SimpleWeather;

var weatherController = new WeatherController();
var currentWeather = await weatherController.GetCurrentWeather("Lovech", "metric");
var weatherForecast = await weatherController.GetWeatherForecast("Lovech");

Console.WriteLine($"The current weather in {currentWeather.City} is {Math.Round(currentWeather.Main.Temperature)}°C degrees with {currentWeather.Weather.Description}.\n");

Console.WriteLine("The weather forecast for the next 7 days is:\n");

foreach (var day in weatherForecast.Daily)
    Console.WriteLine($"The weather for: {day.DT.ToString("dd.MM.yyyy")}");
    Console.WriteLine($"Min temperature: {Math.Round(day.Temperature.Min)}°C");
    Console.WriteLine($"Max temperature: {Math.Round(day.Temperature.Max)}°C");
    Console.WriteLine($"Wind speed will be: {day.WindSpeed} m/s");
    Console.WriteLine($"Wind direction will be: {day.WindDirectionLong} ({day.WindDirectionShort})");
    Console.WriteLine($"The weather conditions will be: {day.Weather.Description}");
    Console.WriteLine($"Probability for precipitation: {day.PrecipitationProbability}%");
    Console.WriteLine($"The moon phase will be: {day.MoonPhase}\n");

This will produce the following result:

The current weather in Lovech is 17°C degrees with clear sky.

The weather forecast for the next 7 days is:

The weather for: 15.04.2022
Min temperature: 9°C
Max temperature: 22°C
Wind speed will be: 2.2 m/s
Wind direction will be: South-southwest (SSW)
The weather conditions will be: clear sky
Probability for precipitation: 0%
The moon phase will be: Full Moon
The weather for: 21.04.2022
Min temperature: 5°C
Max temperature: 17°C
Wind speed will be: 7.63 m/s
Wind direction will be: West (W)
The weather conditions will be: few clouds
Probability for precipitation: 0%
The moon phase will be: Waning Gibbous
