Weatherlink API
« on: June 18, 2018, 10:50:50 PM »
As our move to WeatherLink 2.0 proceeds, we are approaching an important update that will affect anyone using the WeatherLink 1.0 API. This may affect you if you use the current API to:
Display data on a personal or community web page.
Share data with a 3rd party service that is dependent on the API.
Access your weather data from our servers.

The current www.weatherlink.com/xml.php API is scheduled to be decommissioned at the end of July, 2018. The new api.weatherlink.com/v1, available in JSON and XML formats, will be the ONLY functioning API after July 2018. This API works for WeatherLink 1.0 and 2.0 and can be used immediately, but it requires the use of a unique API token.

To generate a unique API token: Watch the Generate API Token video
 
Log in to WeatherLink 2.0 using existing WeatherLink user credentials.
Access the account information in the right sidebar, under the username and account picture.
On the account information page, click Generate API Token.
Fill in the required fields and click the Generate button.
The unique API token will display in the API Token field.

These important changes will help us make continual improvements to the API so that you can access your personal weather station data or share it with 3rd party services faster and with maximum reliability.

If you are aware of any person or 3rd party that may use the WeatherLink 1.0 API, please help us spread the news of the upcoming changes.

Thank you,

All of us at Davis Instruments

Thanks for posting.

The last time I checked, WeatherLink 2.0 has some pros, offset by some cons. It will be interesting to see how it plays out, especially given the slow and painful death of Weather Undergound. WU is likely already dead, but may unaware, as it appears unaware of so many other things. Haha.
