WeatherBot gets alerts

code × March 5, 2017

I didn’t expect WeatherBot to become a series of posts, but the weather has been fluctuating so much scary.

WeatherBot has severe weather alerts now:

WeatherBot severe weather alerts

How it works

  1. If there are any alerts in the request, then loop through them.
  2. Get the title, start, expiration date, and link to the alert.
  3. Evaluate the severity of the alert and assign an emoji (advisory :grey_exclamation:, watch :exclamation:, warning :bangbang:).
  4. Post to Slack.

I’m looking forward to using this bot as a reminder to open up my laptop and stay inside :grimacing:.
