Overview

Sponge's Weather Web Part displays the current weather information based on the user's location. It uses the HTML5 geo-location and Yahoo's Weather API to do so.

Installation

  • At first, you have to install Sponge. See the Install page on how to do that.
  • Once this is done, navigate to the Site Collection you want to enable the Weather Web Part.
  • Go to Site Settings --> Manage Site Collection Features --> and activate Sponge Feature alt text
  • Go back to a SharePoint site and click Edit Page button --> Add a Web Part --> Sponge Web Parts --> Weather Web Part.

The Weather Web Part will automatically get the weather information based on the location. alt text

If the user's Browser does not support the HTML5 geo-location API, like IE <= 9, this error will be shown. alt text
