Was it response to ability to use TWC API key or Jolla Weather?

Only in the Ubuntu channel, so haven't heard anything about jolla weather, but can assume that'll be the same. Seems a bit silly when we're just a conduit for the weather to get to the same watch, doesn't it ;)

From Jolla Weather we do not really need API key or whatever, just ability to peek at the data it managed to collect and shows on the phone.
Also I found Yahoo actually uses TWC as a provider, so effectively Yahoo Weather is a proxy to TWC. Of course it has different data format caching and update frequency, but still should provide comparable results.
Currently (re)searching which API provider would be best to use

I'd think Jolla's deal with their provider will be just as restrictive as the others, so takimg

Ok, I think daemon part is ready, going to merge to master and send PR. No UI so far but with DBus you can manage SMS, Contacts, and weather
That is with TWC weather provider
