I want to receive weather data from openweather map api service. I don’t know PHP but my friend says you can do it with jQuery too.

Can I know how to do it?
Any sample code for it?

I have been trying to find answer of this question for days but could not get it. Please help.

You do not need jQuery,
JavaScript can do this

    fetch([url])
      .then((response) => response.json())
      .then((data) => console.log(data))

If you want to learn more about this,
google for fetch api or ajax

Well, you receive data from api via “JSON” string. You’l need a way to get this string. You could use either $.getJSON or $.ajax . You can find many examples of use of these two which you can customize to suit your needs.
So search for “JSON string” and “JSON” for javascript/jquery.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at https://freecodecamp.org.

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:
