Some time ago I found Weather Icons project by Erik Flowers. It’s customized font with appropriate CSS, which allows you to use weather icons on the website. In addition, those icons can be customized. They can have different size or color. Moreover, they are compatible with the Bootstrap. I thought, that it would be nice, if I had something like that for Android applications. That’s why I created simple open-source project called Weather Icon View. It’s customized view for Android, which allows you to use weather icons in mobile apps in similar way as in web apps. When you add mentioned library to your project, you can use it in XML layout in the following way:
<com.github.pwittchen.weathericonview.WeatherIconView android:id="@+id/my_weather_icon" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" custom:weatherIconResource="@string/wi_day_sunny" custom:weatherIconColor="@android:color/black" custom:weatherIconSize="200" />
You can also use it programmatically as it’s presented below.
WeatherIconView weatherIconView; weatherIconView = (WeatherIconView) findViewById(R.id.my_weather_icon); weatherIconView.setIconResource(getString(R.string.wi_day_sunny)); weatherIconView.setIconSize(200); weatherIconView.setIconColor(Color.BLACK);
