Sorry for the long radio silence: we’ve been working very hard on a lot of new things, and we’re finally starting to roll them out!

First, we’re consolidating our branding under the Dark Sky name, getting rid of Forecast.io entirely. We’ve found that people often don’t realize the two are related, and this causes a lot of confusion.

This means a few things:

  • The developer portal has moved to https://darksky.net/dev/.
  • The attribution requirement of the Terms of Service (which are now located at https://darksky.net/dev/docs/terms) have changed: when showing attribution, you should display “Powered by Dark Sky” and link to https://darksky.net/poweredby/. Please make this change to your app or service at your earliest convenience!
  • The API endpoint has changed from https://api.forecast.io/ to https://api.darksky.net/. The previous endpoint will continue to work for the foreseeable future, but please change your software as soon as possible.

Secondly, we’ve rewritten our developer site from the ground-up. It should now be much easier to use, and will allow us to add new developer features much more quickly and easily than we were able to before. Expect further updates in the near future!

Thirdly, we hate bothering you with emails, so we’ve created a Dark Sky Status Blog that you can use to keep on top of any updates or outages with the API. (You are currently reading this post on it!)

If you have any questions, please drop us a line at developer@darksky.net.
