[RELEASE] Apixu.com worldwide weather data with outside lux. No PWS or server setup required

with WU no longer available took a quick pass at porting my apixu driver original created for HE. more on that driver here:

this is an alpha version … pretty much a straight port of the HE version with a couple of tiles added for ST. i expect to add the same tile layout as @takissd had for his SmartWeather Station Tile 2.0 which i used to use on ST prior to WU doing their thing.

off course since i use local outdoor lux value with settings for various rooms in my rooms manager app this driver publishes a robust but calculated value for outdoor lux that you can use with rooms manager. rooms manager is here:

again alpha version for ST … no known bugs … device tiles are not there yet but coming.

I have to check on the lux rates vs the old one but this seems to be working as expected.

It seems that apixu.com is now weatherstack.com along with a new API. Has somebody managed to make it work?

do you still need this or are you using an alternate weather device?

Tried to use the integrated weather app for lux but it stopped working. So, yes, it would be great to bring this back with estimated lux data.
