Experimental NWS Alert Service

Postby phirephly » Mon Jan 23, 2012 11:11 pm

I liked Acrollet's national weather service cron job so much I thought I would try and improve it. I first rewrote it as a static script which is a little easier to understand, but that wasn't nearly convoluted enough.

I now present to you a web-form based subscription system such that you can easily subscribe to alerts for any US county or zone without needing a computer always on running unix.

This is all entirely written in shell on my alarm clock, so be patient; it's not the fastest web service out there. I'm interested to see how well it can handle itself.
