About:There are multiple Facebook pages that are run by people in my area that post severe weather alerts, but the problem is, the page manager has to manually post each warning. In order to avoid this time consuming action, I wrote an application that runs in Node that automatically grabs alerts from Weather Underground, and posts new alerts to the Facebook page that it is linked to. The application also stores the hashes of alerts that have already been posted inside of a lightweight JSON database. This is to ensure that alerts don’t get posted more than once. I wanted to get into Node and JS & TypeScript in general, so I thought that this would be a nice way to introduce myself to those technologies.
