Weather integration with geocode-glib and geoclue


  • Increasing the range of cities available in gnome-weather.
  • Adding support of detached location to location-entry in libgweather.
  • Adding support of geocode-forwarding to libgweather to get the cities which are not listed in the static database of locations.
  • Finding the nearest city using coordinates of geocode place, fetched from geocode forwarding and using METAR code of that nearest place, show the weather information.
  • Make sure everything works fine after this and nothing crashes.
  • Working on few more bugs and new features after the above ones are accomplished.

Benefits to GNOME community

  • The above changes will help to reduce dependency on static database of locations for gweather location entry. GNOME applications using libgweather such as gnome-clocks, Weather and gnome-initial-setup will be benifited as the range of available cities will increase.
  • Most of the bugs in libgweather are related to missing cities in database so they won't be bugs anymore after the proposed work will be accomplished.
  • There are new designs ongoing in github so I'll work on that and more bugs and new feature as soon as the above proposed work will be accomplished.
