Hi, chance of sun, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.
Any plans to move to a different provider/API? Curious what the advantage is to using Yahoo, especially since their data/detail isn't as good as other services.
No plans currently.
The problem is that a lot of the other sites' "free" API access limits the number of total API calls per hour/day, etc. Though I have no real data to back it up, sWeather seems pretty popular, and I fear that it would exceed most sites' free API limits. An option is to pay ($$$) for more API access but I don't get near enough donations to cover using a pay tier for most sites' APIs.
Yahoo!'s API is free, easy to work with (until now, sorta), and they never seemed to have an API call limit issue with sWeather. They recently changed things so that I have to use OAuth (pain in the ass) to access an entirely different API than what sWeather was using beforehand.
Which service did you have in mind?
