Compare the current weather at your location with the weather at the exact opposite point on Earth.
What is included in the sale ?
All source code included. I will redirect traffic and all links to your domain. Buysellads ads on site may be removed and replace with your own ad space.
What is the technological stack ?
For every search, the site makes two requests to the Dark Sky API.
Dark Sky provides current weather and weather forecasts for any coordinate point on Earth, even in the middle of the ocean or the North and South Pole.
Search is provided through the Google Places API. Despite using the Algolia Places API at first, I could not figure out how to raise the rate limits on Algolia despite entering my billing information and reading through the docs. Google is cheaper, and provides much the same functionality.
Reverse geocoding and elevation data is provided by Google as well.
World maps are drawn using d3.
Which parts of the project are incomplete ?
The site has been up and running for roughly six months. Everything is running smoothly. Algolia search integration was replaced with Google Places API within the first week after launch, and is much cheaper anyway.
Why are you selling ?
This is my first project I'm going to have a go at selling on 1kProjects, we'll see how it goes.
How can the future owner turn your project into a business ?
Ad revenue has been my revenue source for this project.
With a little better marketing this site is begging to go viral.
