looks like we have a year and half at least of Darsky service.

Our API service for existing customers is not changing today, but we will no longer accept new signups. The API will continue to function through the end of 2021.
DarkSky via paid API. No clue what I am going to do if/when they turn it off.
Unfortunately I never signed up for the API accoutn even though I had emailed them back and forth clarifying if I can use it. So it looks like I am out of luck for now
Does openweather map still work? What features am I missing with it?

I'm really going to be disappointed when the Darksky api stops working. The amount of information provided was incredible. It replaced at least two different drivers for me and I still have more information than I ever had before.
I just was looking at the OpenWeatheMap API. It looks like it now has a lot more details then the CQC driver is currently pulling.
I am running v1 of the driver and I see:

Cur Himidy
And then 3 days of forcasts.

But on their website for the one call api They have a lot more fields.  How hard would it be to edit the current driver?

The V2 driver would have more values generally. And of course use the standard V2 field names for the common stuff, which is always a good thing. Non-V2 stuff can be supported as well of course. It's all XML (or maybe that one is JSON) so that values have to be parsed out and stored.
Is there a V2 driver? I have the most recent stables version and under openweather there is only one driver.

Thank you
I think the Open Weather Map one is only V2, as far as I remember.
