Restoring weather applet in kdeplasma-addons

I am missing the weather applet in my Plasma5 workspace. I found the 
sources in kdeplasma-addons/applets/weather, but it seems not yet ported 
and is disabled from the build.

So I would see to port it over now myself.

A few questions I have:

Is anyone already looking into it?
Any general plans with weather info display in Plasma5?

I see plasma_applet_weather is using some libplasmaweather from 
kdeplasma-addons/libs/plasmaweather, which is also not yet ported and 
disabled from build. Looks it is for code sharing with the weatherstation 
applet (which is unported and disabled from build as well).

Does it make sense to keep the current structure with the shared lib and 
the applet, at least for the initial port of the weather applet?

Are there any Plasma5 applet tutorials, especially for porting? seems about QQ2-only apps.
So far I was planning to look for some reference e.g. at the comic applet 
and how it got ported.
