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!
