I sure hope Apple didn’t singlehandedly kill the mobile weather app renaissance (for both iOS and Android!) by acquiring Dark Sky and announcing that its very popular API will be discontinued. I’m sure it’s hard for app developers to avoid vendor lock-in for weather APIs.

Just finished porting my web site,, from Jekyll to Hugo, and I believe I managed to not break its integration! Is this thing on?
