Dark Sky Plugin

Dark Sky (previously Forecast.io) is a provider of weather data. It collects data from a wide range of sources (USA NOAA, UK Met Office, the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, ...) and statistically aggregates them to provide the most accurate forecast possible for a given location.

This plugin allows you to get historical data and weather forecasts in Dataiku DSS provided by Dark Sky API.
Given a location (latitude/longitude), you can get weather data, day by day and/or hour and hour.
It will help you to enrich your projects and machine learning models.
