  • Uses Google's "OneBox" to look up the sunrise in any city by name. If no city is specified, it defaults to Seattle. For the sunset time, you change the search query to "sunset", like so, . sunset() { city=${1-Seattle}; w3m "google.com/search?q=sunset:$city" | sed -r '1,/^\s*1\./d; /^\s*2\./,$d; /^$/d' ;} . "OneBox" is Google's term for that box that appears before the organic search results that has useful information that Google thinks you might be looking for (mathematical calculations, weather, currency conversions, and such). I'm not actually using OneBox correctly, but that's because I'm not sure that there is a "correctly". I looked for a command line API, but couldn't find one, so I settled on parsing stdout from the fantastic w3m web browser. I use the sed script to show only the first hit by deleting everything from the beginning of the file until it sees " 1." and then deleting everything from " 2." to the end of the file. Ugly and fragile, yes, but it works fine. . BUG1: w3m represents the picture of the sun rising, "weather_sunset-40.gif" as "[weat]" which is slightly confusing and probably should be removed. . BUG2: The output is more easily readable by a human, which means it's less useful for scripting. Show Sample Output

  • Just feed classical duckduckgo request replacing the "!" for the bang by a "-" (ie. "ddg -gi mickey mouse") and the result will be opened in w3m (think of installing w3m-img for image support in xterm or tty) To put it in the .bashrc, remove the "\" that escapes the "!".

Get the weather forecast for the next 24 to 48 for your location.
This shell function grabs the weather forecast for the next 24 to 48 hours from weatherunderground.com. Replace <YOURZIPORLOCATION> with your zip code or your "city, state" or "city, country", then calling the function without any arguments returns the weather for that location. Calling the function with a zip code or place name as an argument returns the weather for that location instead of your default. To add a bit of color formatting to the output, use the following instead: $weather(){ curl -s "http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/ForecastXML/index.xml?query=${@:-}"|perl -ne '/([^
