How to Build Weather App using HTML CSS & JavaScript

Hello Everyone, In this tutorial we are going to build weather app using HTML CSS & JavaScript. In the last tutorial we are created Preview Image Before Upload Using JavaScript. We have to learn how to create a weather app using HTML & JavaScript.

In this weather app, you can get the weather details of a particular area as well as city by entering the city name or you can also get your current location weather details by clicking on the “Get Device Location” button. If you entered an invalid city name then show an error message to you.

To build the weather app we are use api. You have to get api code and add into JavaScript file. This is a best project for JavaScript beginner and intermediate programer.

HTML

To create weather app using javascript, Firstly, You have to create index.html file and copy paste the below html code to your index.html file


<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- Coding By Codegyan - codegyan.in -->
<html lang="en" dir="ltr">
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">

        <p class="info-txt"></p>

          <input type="text" spellcheck="false" placeholder="Enter city name" required>
          <div class="separator"></div>
          <button>Get Device Location</button>
        </div>
      </section>
      <section class="weather-part">
        <img src="" alt="Weather Icon">
        <div class="temp">
          <span class="numb">_</span>

          <i class='bx bx-map'></i>
          <span>_, _</span>
        </div>
        <div class="bottom-details">
          <div class="column feels">
            <i class='bx bxs-thermometer'></i>
            <div class="details">
              <div class="temp">
                <span class="numb-2">_</span>

      </section>
    </div>
    
    <script src="script.js"></script>

  </body>

CSS

After that, you have to create style.css file for adding css to your html. Now you have to copy paste below css code to your style.css file.

JAVASCRIPT

Lastly, You have to create a JavaScript file with the name of script.js and copy paste the given codes in your JavaScript file.

NOTE :  You have to add your API key in the API URL otherwise this weather app won’t work and it returns “something went wrong” error. You can get this key from the official OpenWeatherMap site for free.


const wrapper = document.querySelector(".wrapper"),
inputPart = document.querySelector(".input-part"),
infoTxt = inputPart.querySelector(".info-txt"),
inputField = inputPart.querySelector("input"),
locationBtn = inputPart.querySelector("button"),
weatherPart = wrapper.querySelector(".weather-part"),
wIcon = weatherPart.querySelector("img"),
arrowBack = wrapper.querySelector("header i");

let api;

inputField.addEventListener("keyup", e =>{
    if(e.key == "Enter" && inputField.value != ""){
        requestApi(inputField.value);
    }
});

locationBtn.addEventListener("click", () =>{
    if(navigator.geolocation){
        navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(onSuccess, onError);
    }else{
        alert("Your browser not support geolocation api");
    }
});

function requestApi(city){
    api = `https://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?q=${city}&units=metric&appid=your_api_key`;
    fetchData();
}

function onSuccess(position){
    const {latitude, longitude} = position.coords;
    api = `https://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?lat=${latitude}&lon=${longitude}&units=metric&appid=your_api_key`;
    fetchData();
}

function onError(error){
    infoTxt.innerText = error.message;
    infoTxt.classList.add("error");
}

function fetchData(){
    infoTxt.innerText = "Getting weather details...";
    infoTxt.classList.add("pending");
    fetch(api).then(res => res.json()).then(result => weatherDetails(result)).catch(() =>{
        infoTxt.innerText = "Something went wrong";
        infoTxt.classList.replace("pending", "error");
    });
}

function weatherDetails(info){
    if(info.cod == "404"){
        infoTxt.classList.replace("pending", "error");
        infoTxt.innerText = `${inputField.value} isn't a valid city name`;
    }else{
        const city = info.name;
        const country = info.sys.country;
        const {description, id} = info.weather[0];
        const {temp, feels_like, humidity} = info.main;

        if(id == 800){
            wIcon.src = "icons/clear.svg";
        }else if(id >= 200 && id <= 232){
            wIcon.src = "icons/storm.svg";  
        }else if(id >= 600 && id <= 622){
            wIcon.src = "icons/snow.svg";
        }else if(id >= 701 && id <= 781){
            wIcon.src = "icons/haze.svg";
        }else if(id >= 801 && id <= 804){
            wIcon.src = "icons/cloud.svg";
        }else if((id >= 500 && id <= 531) || (id >= 300 && id <= 321)){
            wIcon.src = "icons/rain.svg";
        }
        
        weatherPart.querySelector(".temp .numb").innerText = Math.floor(temp);
        weatherPart.querySelector(".weather").innerText = description;
        weatherPart.querySelector(".location span").innerText = `${city}, ${country}`;
        weatherPart.querySelector(".temp .numb-2").innerText = Math.floor(feels_like);
        weatherPart.querySelector(".humidity span").innerText = `${humidity}%`;
        infoTxt.classList.remove("pending", "error");
        infoTxt.innerText = "";
        inputField.value = "";
        wrapper.classList.add("active");
    }
}

arrowBack.addEventListener("click", ()=>{
    wrapper.classList.remove("active");
});
