wxkb.io – A super fast weather site in under 10kb
by Julian Norton & Ryan Williams
Weather websites suck. They are slow, bloated, riddled with ads, and destroy your data plan with megabytes of useless assets. Weather in under 10kb (wxkb.io) aims to deliver a brief, recent forecast available to anyone with a browser. WX is the original shorthand in Morse code for weather, the technology where brevity was vital. X is also the roman numeral for 10, hence WXKB. It guesses the closest location based on IP address while allowing access to hourly weather anywhere in the world.
