Like it! Cool stuff.

Could you have an icon in the sidebar with the current condition, and then perhaps the temp in a title attribute or something?

You could also have a ‘more’ link pointing to the locale page…

I could do that. However, I don’t want to add more clutter to the sidebar.

I think the weather information is ideally located on the locale page. That page discusses my location, thus the weather details are meta data for that page, they aren’t really relevant anywhere else.

Astro::Sunrise is okay but, if I remember correctly, it has a dependency on the massive DateTime module. Surely this is overkill if you only want to calculate sunrise and sunset times.

I suggest you look at Astro::SunTime which has offers the same information but with a much smaller footprint.

Of course, if you use DateTime elsewhere, then my argument doesn’t apply. :-)

Thanks for the pointer Aaron. However, I do use DateTime extensively within my CMS. In fact, in my opinion, DateTime is one of those “must-have” modules - it is so useful!
