ASCII Weather Report

Asciiw is a little weather site I made using the wunderground api which shows the basic weather status for your location along with some nice handcrafted ASCII animations.

Asciiw.userboundcom

Each animation is custom drawn in ASCII and cycled through with javascript. For example, here's the animation for rain!

               ,--.,            
      ,--,--. (     ),   ,--.,  
     (       (,___,__)  (     ),
    (,___,____,)       (,___,__)
                 |              
      |                   |     
            |                   
                |      |        
          |                     

             |      |           

By default asciiw uses my zip code in Madison, WI but can be switched to any zip code adding /?zipcode to the URL.

For example, to get the weather for Blacksburg, Virginia zipcode 24060 simply visit asciiw.userbound.com/?24060.
