Printing Daily Weather Forecasts with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

I want the weather forecast waiting for me on my little Raspberry Pi-powered internet printer in the morning. I tried signing up for the Printer Weather forecast app but it never worked – maybe it’s not running at the moment. I couldn’t work out how to install it myself, so I was a bit stuck.

Then I had an idea. I use IFTTT to email myself a weather forecast every morning. IFTTT stands for If This, Then That (or is it ‘If That, Then This’?). It glues together different web sites and services like Gmail, Flickr and Twitter in ways that can be incredibly useful. I had an idea to use the weather service on IFTTT combined with JD Harper’s really neat idea for using Dropbox text files as a way of printing to a GoFreeRange printer.

Adafruit IoT Pi Printer Project Pack – Includes Raspberry Pi – Build an “Internet of Things” connected mini printer that will do your bidding! This is a fun weekend project that comes with a beautiful laser cut case. Once assembled, the little printer connects wirelessly to get Internet data for printing onto 2 1/4″ wide receipt paper. Based on a Raspberry Pi computer, this is a powerful mini Linux machine. We have example python code for a few different printouts including a daily weather forecast report, sudoku puzzles, image printer and a tweeter printer that connects Twitter’s search API and retrieve and print tweets according to your requests.
