About the project

The project was first made for just one of 7 projects I was supposed to make in a week. More about that here. I really liked how this project turned out and wanted to improve on it, so I decided to continue on with this project when the week was done. And that's how Breeze came to be. At first, it didn't offer an accessibility friendly mode, and was pretty limited, but I think it's improving slowly. I really love using it to experiment with stuff.

Accessibility mode

Click the accessibility button on the homepage to get to the accessibility version, or just click here

Accessibility mode is a mode that removes anything that would make it hard to understand the website, changes the font to a dyslexia friendly one, removes the background so that it is easy and clear to read, makes the text bigger so it's clear to read, and has a spoken version of the weather so that people that prefer audio over text can use the website without any issues. To use the spoken version, click the big "SPEAK" button.

Terminal version

The terminal version of Breeze is currently an alpha side project, which can be downloaded via npm from here or npm i -g breezeweather
