** Description changed:
Co-maintained and in sync with Debian GNOME.
Built for all supported architectures.
It is a simple standalone app to show the weather.
If installed, it adds the weather status to the clock menu in GNOME
Shell. (This was introduced in GNOME 3.24 and is available in Ubuntu
The app optionally uses GNOME's geolocation services powered by geoclue.
This can be enabled or disabled from GNOME Settings>Privacy>Location
Services. GNOME shows an indicator in the right of the top bar when
Location Services is in use.
GNOME Weather has been part of core GNOME since GNOME 3.20 (early 2016).
No known security issues
Uses gjs/mozjs which the Ubuntu Security Team reluctantly accepted into main
- The Ubuntu Desktop bugs team will need to subscribe to this package
No upstream tests or autopkgtests.
No universe binary dependencies
+ debhelper compat 11, minimal dh7 style rules
- Actively developed upstream. Last release was 3.26.0 in September.
- Debian packaging uses svn, but we're hoping to convert to git this year
(which will allow for Ubuntu branches):
The app is minimally feature complete.
The weather data itself comes via libgweather which is written in C and
uses libsoup and has been in main for years. I believe the default
provider is METAR.
See libgweather/weather-metar.c and libgweather/gweather-weather.c
