We wanted to make something that takes the guesswork out of getting ready in the morning. Specifically, we often struggle to decide whether 50F means sweater weather or a winter coat. Wheather helps make this decision for us! (Wheather is a portmanteau of weather and whether - helping us decide whether we should wear a coat!)

What it does

Wheather will send users daily text messages telling them what they should wear based on the weather in their area.

How we built it

We used React.js for the front-end and Flask for the back end. We also connected to the DarkSky weather API for weather data and Twilio to send text messages to users.

NOTE: Because we're using a free trial of Twilio, phone numbers need to be verified by hand before they can be used with Wheather.
