Display the weather from several web services on your desktop

The Weather Desklet displays current and forecast weather on your Cinnamon desktop. It has plenty of options for configuring how it looks and comes with a selection of great weather icons, or you can use your own. For those who like to keep an eye on the weather in several locations it supports multiple instances.

At present the Weather Desklet can work with data from the BBC, Open Weather Map, Weather Underground, World Weather Online,, and (The Weather Channel).

The Weather Desklet includes translations into a growing number of languages.

For detailed usage instruction visit the Weather Desklet's website, or just install the desklet, right click on it and select 'Help'.

OpenWeatherMap provides and api and it seems to work since I can see humidity and the temperature, but the name says Error: 401. Refreshing doesn't seem to help.

Weather Underground no longer provides a free API. Let me know when there is an API a normal person would be able to use for free. Until then this is clunkware.

OpenWeatherMap is usable. Registering on their website provides you with the API key. Setting locations is done by finding the desired city on their website and then using the number in the end of the link. (For example, the link for Paris is with 2988507 being the number you want.)

Works great on Cinnamon 3.4.4 in Mint 18.2. Just takes a little reading of the docs to get the setup right (using Weather Underground API).

Tried this desklet, but setting it up proved to be too difficult.
