WP TAF METAR Widget is a plugin that allows you to show the TAF or METAR (aviation weather) information from any airport directly to your WordPress WebSite, by just giving the ICAO code of the wanted airport.

initial version


Added Metar & a cache system to prevent from being called to often.

Added a cache system compatible with multiple airports requests, so it doesn’t charge too much databases
