Displaying Weather Dashboard in your Amibroker

1 min read

Thought of brining weather data into Amibroker. Googled for free weather api data. OpenWeathermap came to my notice. Using Openweathermap one can get weather data for any location on the globe immediately.

Sample Weather Output

{"coord":{"lon":77.6,"lat":12.98},"weather":[{"id":803,"main":"Clouds","description":"broken clouds","icon":"04n"}],"base":"stations","main":
{"temp":294.15,"feels_like":297.36,"temp_min":294.15,"temp_max":294.15,"pressure":1012,"humidity":100},"visibility":6000,"wind":
{"speed":1.39,"deg":288},"clouds":{"all":75},"dt":1602971629,"sys":
{"type":1,"id":9208,"country":"IN","sunrise":1602981608,"sunset":1603024139},"timezone":19800,"id":1277333,"name":"Bengaluru","cod":200}

Amibroker AFL Code to get the Weather Dashboard

Code requires Amibroker 6.17 as some of the new AFL functions like InternetClose( handle ) , InternetOpenURL( “url” ) , InternetReadString( handle ) – which is essecial to read from internet resource/http api is available from v6.17 or higher version.
