    Does this actually work? I have it set up (API key, timed event, my synchro.net we address, port 6667, port open on the network side, & etc.). It's running seemingly without issue--no errors. And the only output I get in my log is what you see below:

    1/3 12:15:12a WEATHER Running timed event: WEATHER
    1/3 12:15:12a WEATHER Timed event: WEATHER returned 0

    However, no weather in my IRC room... :( Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

    did you get an api key from the website?

    i have 2 different types of bots that do weather scripts but i couldn't get that synchronet weather bot to work. does it even have documentation yet?

    I haven't found any for the synchronet weather bot, but I think i have narrowed it down to this error: ""IRCBOT !JavaScript C:\sbbs\exec\load\modopts.js line 37: ReferenceError: argv is not defined". Still troubleshooting, but haven't found the resolution as of yet.

    Where can I get this other bot?

    No, you asked does this actually work and I responded with evidence
    that it does.

    Ok. So, I've narrowed down the issue.

    The error I'm getting says, "owm.call_api is not a function".

    In sbbs/exec/ircbots/weather/weather_commands.js, "owm.call_api" is called upon twice. Once on line 18 for the "weather" function and again line 60 for the "forecast" function.

    It seems that this is an error in the script. I've tried various things (defining "owm.call_api", & etc.). So far, nothing has worked. I have no idea where else to go with this.

    you have to talk to the script creator. and ask him to please create some documentation , too. i suggest you just run eggdrop and i can give you a script that works for weather.

    Don't I have to install Unix to run egg drop? I have no idea who created the script. It's not in the script unless I should just assume that DM made it.

    Eggdrop gave me errors when extracting from the tar and the zip. Not looking like something I'd be eager to install.

    Well, that's not Eggdrop's fault... It's probably the most widely used
    bot there is, and works fine.

    Obviously you have a bad/corrupted download.

    I have modified KenDB's syncWX weather app to work with weatherapi.com. While it is NOT perfect, it does work for getting the weather displayed at logon and as an external app. You do have to setup to separate external (door) apps. Here is the link to the github for the files: https://github.com/mhansel7399/SyncWeather

    I hope this helps.

    Did you want to submit a merge request at gitlab.synchro.net? Would that be useful for other SyncOps?

    I think it would be helpful for other SyncOps. I am still really new to all of this. I was just happy to get the code to work and modify it so it can be used either at login or external. I will need a little assistance with this merge thing you speak of.

    Bravo! I am psyched to see someone was able to update it to a new API. I kept meaning to do something with it, but don't have the time I used to for projects like that.

    Thanks!
