I have been on a big terminal kick of late and discovered and I wondered if I could bring that ascii joy to peoples docs.

What it does

This is a coda pack that will get a town that a user types in and returns an ascii image weather report.

How we built it

This was built with Typescript and the Coda sdk.

Challenges we ran into

I initially wanted to return the raw ascii but keeping the formatting was a difficult when the ascii was not in a terminal. I had to return the ascii report as a png to show it correctly.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • This is my first published Coda pack and is not the last one for this hackathon.
  • Published my first Doc as well.

What we learned

I learned a couple of things while developing this app:

  • Returning images as a response for Coda formulas
  • How to deploy a Coda pack
