When installing lineageos on your device, you will perhaps miss the out of the box functionality of the cLock stock app to display a weather forecast. To do so, you need to install a third-party weather provider service. The first idea was to code a weather forecast provider that uses the open data from the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD).
However, although some basic functionality could be established in a test version, the lineageos classes to integrate a weather provider service turned out to be quite inflexible (e.g. you need to provide a forecast for exactly 7 days to achieve full functionality, some additional data available form the DWD could not be displayed, etc.).
Therefore, this idea was dropped in favour of a widget that could be placed comfortably on the home screen and adjusted to the needs of the user, displaying more detailed weather data that would have been possible using a weather provider service.
Furthermore, this approach makes this app also available to anyone, not requiring lineageos to be installed on the device.
Please also note that the DWD presents huge amounts of open weather data. The scope of this app is to poll a simple, 24 hours weather forecast from the DWD, and not more at the present time.
