It’s possible to not need AutoLocation and use the Tasker lat/lng but I was after testing the application, and you could use a different widget tool like Minimalistic Text, or even just a notification in the status bar.
Sign up to the API at Forecast.io https://developer.forecast.io/register
You don’t need to provide card details as the you get 1000 calls per day, and you shouldn’t get close to using them all (my peak is only 84 calls). At worst it would just stop working for the rest of the day.
Make a note of your API key.
Build this profile in Tasker (note you need your API key from step 1 as !!!!YOURAPIKEY!!!!)
Build this profile in Tasker
Profile: Display Unlocked (61) Event: Display Unlocked Enter: Get Location For Weather (62) A1: AutoLocation Location [ Configuration:Starting Location Monitor Location Report Name: Weather Update Type: Balanced Package:com.joaomgcd.autolocation Name:AutoLocation Location Timeout (Seconds):0 ]
Have a Zooper widget which has a text field with the content
Turn your phone off, wait a few seconds, then turn back on and unlock.
If the Forecast.io call is working you should first see a toast with “Getting Weather”, followed by the one line text.
