Project:- 4/500 Weather App Project LiveRun


This is a simple weather app that allows users to get current weather information for any location. The app uses an external weather API to fetch real-time weather data and displays it in a user-friendly interface. This project is ideal for learning how to work with APIs and building interactive web applications using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS.


  • Real-time Weather Data: Fetch and display current weather information for any location.

  • Search Functionality: Allow users to search for weather information by city name.

  • Responsive Design: Ensure the app works well on various devices, including mobile phones and tablets.

Technologies Used

  • JavaScript: For fetching data from the weather API and updating the DOM.

  • HTML: For structuring the app's interface.

  • CSS: For styling the app and making it responsive.


Follow these steps to set up and run the project on your local machine:

  1. Clone the repository:

     git clone
  2. Navigate to the project directory:

     cd Basic Projects/3-weather_app
  3. Openindex.html in your web browser: You can open the index.html file directly in your web browser by double-clicking on it or by using a live server extension in your code editor (like Live Server for VSCode).

  4. Obtain an API Key: Sign up for a free API key from a weather service provider, such as OpenWeatherMap.

  5. Add Your API Key: Update the JavaScript file with your API key in the appropriate place.
