Temps – A Smart Beautiful Weather App for GNU/Linux

Temps - Linux Weather Desktop
Written by Martins D. Okoi

I’ve written on a couple of weather applications before, including Cumulus and Simple Weather Indicator and today I bring you yet another free and beautiful Linux app with thanks to the open source community. It’s reminiscent of Cumulus weather application and it goes by the name of Temps.

Temps is a beautiful cross-platform weather application that lives in the menu bar of any desktop. Being true to the open source spirit, it uses code from several open source projects like Menubar, OpenWeatherMap, Electron, and Chart.js, to mention a few.

It features a clean User Interface with sans-serif fonts, bold minimalist icons (which were developed by the developer himself), and support for OpenWeatherMap which it uses to fetch weather information.

Temps also has the ability to display the weather for any location in the world along with a 4-day forecast for the same location, and data readings of barometric pressure, wind chill, and humidity.

Another beautiful thing about Temp is its default animations to indicate rain, thunder, and snow conditions.

    As an avid XFCE user, I sort of cringe every time I hear about a new weather applet; we have had this for about a decade built-in. And then, you have most people creating these things and requiring an API key to use them. If I’m on a different system, I just use “curl http://wttr.in/location” for weather; use “+” to replace spaces.

      Hehe I can relate.

      It’s one of the perks & curses of the open source community. The wheel is reinvented a lot of times. So I just test and keep using the best of them all because what may satisfy one person may not satisfy the other.
