Darksky alternative

Wondering if anyone has a Darksky alternative for Grafana Cloud? e.g. an Openweather Plugin, etc?

Welcome to the :grafana: Forum!

Indeed, since Apple acquired Darksky and greedily locked out the API, I was just exploring different weather plugins. I think one simple way to do this (though I have not yet tried it) would be to use one of the JSON plugins (this or this) and then query an API that offers a free tier. I have found several that may work:
https://openweathermap.org/price
https://weatherstack.com/product
https://www.weatherapi.com/pricing.aspx
https://www.weather.gov/documentation/services-web-api#

If I get a chance to install / try these out, I will post here how it goes.

Thanks to @marcusolsson for developing such a great plugin.
