  • NotePlan_Themes

    Official collection of custom themes for NotePlan 3

  • I've been using Kagi for about a year and love it. Searching without ads, with a bunch of power-user features, and a thoughtful approach to AI, has been very nice. - https://kagi.com

    I've also been enjoying NotePlan. I stumbled upon a system I like for managing my work in Obsidian at work using some plugins, and then found NotePlan is basically an app designed around the exact system I cobbled together, with some added quality of life improvements. My data is in plain text files, so that makes it future proof (to a degree), which I also like. - https://noteplan.co

    Merry Sky is another. A spiritual successor to Dark Sky, since Apple bought it and shut it down. It's not as nice as Dark Sky was, but hopefully it gets there. It's nice for seeing the upcoming week of perception forecasted in one visual view. - https://merrysky.net

  • jbak2Templates-Skins

    Custom templates and skins for jbak2 android keyboard

  • ultra-weather

    UltraWeather gives user-friendly, actionable weather forecasts.

  • Thanks for the feedback!

    - I have sometimes noticed the `%20` issue; it should be simple to fix. (The location name can come from multiple sources.)

    - The app first tries to estimate your location based on your IP address. There is less friction (no additional prompts/permission required) but it can be very inaccurate. Eventually, you will be able to specify most settings/input via URL params. For example, you will be able to enter all or none of: lat/lng, location name, C/F, etc. When a value isn't provided, a logical default will be used (like lat/lng from location name, or location name from lat/lng).

    - Showing previous dates is very intentional (https://blog.leftium.com/2013/12/how-to-display-temperature-...). Weather stats are very relative, so "trendcasts" combine past history with future forecasts. (Also see the previous version: https://uw.leftium.com/)

    - "I did really like the Dark Sky way of having a vertical bar for the precipitation, with the temps plotted next to it." I'm not sure exactly how that looked. Can you share any screenshots?

    - The daily precipitation forecast bars will have an option to toggle showing the previous history. I was playing around with how they would look. The "current time" marker will track the cursor/finger on hover so you can see exact numbers in the sticky top section (Merry Sky sort of has this, but it's not sticky and hover only works in a few places.)

    - You can already click any temperature stats to toggle between Fahrenheit and Celsius. I default to F because I still believe it is the more "human" metric for weather temperature. I use mm for precipitation because I feel that is the more useful unit for precipitation, but in the future this will also be configurable/togglable.

    - Sunrise/sunset is one of the features I plan to steal from Merry Sky. The data is available in the JSON, but Merry-Timeline doesn't support rendering like Merry Sky (https://github.com/guillaume/merry-timeline/issues/4). I will probably end up writing my own forecast timeline component.

    - Merry Sky already kind of has forecast bars lined up horizontally; I think shading the days with alternating colors would make it more readable. Openweather also has this (although it also needs to shade to make the days more distinguishable, too.) I'm not a big fan of horizontal scrolling, but I may add it as an option.
