DarkSky Weather (also available from the AltAppStore)

I set up Darksky Weather last night.  Seamless install via AltAppStore and easily replaced the information that I was using from Weather Underground.
Scene triggers have been repointed to Darksky without any issues.

Thanks for the recommendation.

DarkSky Weather can also be used in Vera without AltUI installed.

Just grab and upload the 4 plugin files from -> https://github.com/999LV/DarkSkyWeather

To be able to see the advanced tab with the needed variables to configure the plugin please use the modified .json file from here instead of the one from github -> http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,40406.msg420817.html#msg420817

Manually create a new device using "D_DarkSkyWeather.xml" as device_file.

Configure the needed variables according to the DarkSky documentation.

NOTE: DarkSky plugin reqires the Lua libraries “ssl.https” and “dkjson” installed (should already be in an openLuup
environment (please refer to openLuup documentation). Not sure how to get these, I think they were included in some other plugin I'm using since I had them in my system.
