We wanted to play with APIs and thought that a weather app would be a fun way to do it.
What it does
You text it a zip-code and it texts you back an emoji with the current weather in that zip code
How we built it
The texting operations were handled through the Twilio API. The weather information was pulled through the OpenWeatherMap API. Interpretation was done in python.
Challenges we ran into
None of us had much experience with APIs or much coding in general
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We got it to work!
