Very interesting. I've been missing such a library 4 years ago when I wrote
a QML app to display the weather on a RPi.

I remember looking at the plasma weather-engine but most of the data sources 
didn't have information about wind, and wind is very very important where I 
live (it's actually blowing up to 105 km/h at the very moment) :)

Feel free to grab any code from qrpiweather that might be useful, BTW.

The backend I ended up using was "Open Weather" (api.openweathermap.org).
But well, that was 4 years ago, things might have changed since :)
