JavaScript Node.js Basics 2017 Create a Command Line Weather Application Parsing Data and Printing - Solution

For OpenWeatherMap, I checked whether the query is a number or a city before passing the url.

// app.js

const weather = require('./weather.js');

const data = process.argv.slice(2,3);

//  Are we searching using a zipcode or a string?
let query = "";

if (isNaN(data)) {
    query = `q=${data}`;
} else {
    query = `zip=${data}`;


URL then looks like this and use normal https.get(url):



Some issues though with the Cleveland OH example :( still trying to make it work with this api because the query cannot be Cleveland_OH.
