Well after the seeming debacle that the BOM RESTful interface was, and now that the Weather Underground API has closed, I need to find a new source of data for my magic mirror module. I tested using the Dark Sky data, but its so severely out of wack that its not workable. Was still returning values of 37C when it was 27C on the BOM data and 28C on the WUnderground. Ages ago I used to use the FTP service that they offered to scrape the XML data, but this was through a python script, and it seems that the data format has changed. What makes it worse is that the GRIDS linking (https://developer.bom.gov.au/catalogue/gridded-forecast/) now requires an API key which there is no way to register for, as the developer portal has now been closed too. What is worse is that the majority of documentation for the BOM data is now linked to the defunct developer portal, and so is lost in limbo. I notice that a bunch of apps (such as Pocket Weather AU) are evidently still getting data from the BOM, and likely even GRIDS data given that the current weather changes per suburb rather than just per weather station. Anyone played with the new BOM system enough to know how it works these days?
