iOS Build a Weather App with Swift (Retired) Pulling Data From the Web Making a Network Call

1,594 Points

Unable to make network call, returns nil

I use this code in my Stormy app:

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    private let apiKey = "1456cc16a85d13c054c0a3a49cec0bad"

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

        let baseURL = NSURL(string: "https://developer.forecast.io/forecast/\(apiKey)/")
        let forecastURL = NSURL(string: "37.8267,-122.423", relativeToURL: baseURL)

        let weatherData = NSData(contentsOfURL: forecastURL!, options: nil, error: nil)


    override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
        // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.


The console says nil and no network call was made since I still have 1000 free calls left.
