I’ve bumped up the version number of Rforecastio (github) to 1.1.0. The new
features are:

  • removing the SSL certificate bypass check (it doesn’t need it
    anymore)
  • using plyr for easier conversion of JSON->data frame
  • adding in a new daily forecast data frame
  • roxygen2 inline documentation
library(Rforecastio)
library(ggplot2)
library(plyr)
 
# NEVER put API keys in revision control systems or source code!
fio.api.key= readLines("~/.forecast.io")
 
my.latitude = "43.2673"
my.longitude = "-70.8618"
 
fio.list <- fio.forecast(fio.api.key, my.latitude, my.longitude)
 
fio.gg <- ggplot(data=fio.list$hourly.df, aes(x=time, y=temperature))
fio.gg <- fio.gg + labs(y="Readings", x="Time", title="Houry Readings")
fio.gg <- fio.gg + geom_line(aes(y=humidity*100), color="green")
fio.gg <- fio.gg + geom_line(aes(y=temperature), color="red")
fio.gg <- fio.gg + geom_line(aes(y=dewPoint), color="blue")
fio.gg <- fio.gg + theme_bw()
fio.gg
