Well, Yahoo! is going through a (frankly) much needed UI/UX update on all their sites, and that has stranded a few Geek Tool users who rely on Yahoo for awesome .png image weather icons. Fret not, France to the rescue! (SAY WHAT?)
Yes, Yahoo! France still has our beloved weather icons that we can steal from (but for how long??). Use the following unix command to grab the weather icon, and save to the /tmp folder. Modify as you see fit of course:
curl –silent “http://fr.meteo.yahoo.com/united-states/california/aliso-viejo-12796580/” | grep “obs-current-weather” | sed “s/.*background\:url(\’\(.*\)\’) .*/\1/” | xargs curl –silent -o /tmp/weather.png
And in the meantime, if anybody has a new source for great weather icons for the future (for when the French finally surrender to the new Yahoo! UI), drop a comment! Thanks.
