Add and customize your WeatherBlox views

Once you've added your desired WeatherBlox to your application, you can futher customize the views and layouts to fit your needs.

Example view integration

The following example demonstrates how you would add a 5-day weather forecast to your page:

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" />
<script src=""></script>
<!-- designate the view's target element -->
<div id="local-forecast"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
// configure Aeris API access keys
const aeris = new AerisWeather('CLIENT_ID', 'CLIENT_SECRET');
// wait for the WeatherBlox library to be fully loaded and set up
aeris.on('ready', () => {
     // set widget variable
     var localForecast = new aeris.wxblox.views.Forecast('#local-forecast');
     // set API request parameters to be used when requesting data
     var params = { 
          p: ':auto',
          limit: 5
     // load and render the view
