There are very few online services which provide in-depth and up-to-date weather information for free.
In this short tutorial, we will be looking at one such free API provided by worlweatheronline.com and fetching the data using jQuery and AJAX.
Here is a list of all timezones in the form of a HTML drop down that you can use in your projects:
<select name="timezone"> <option value="-12" >(GMT -12:00) Eniwetok, Kwajalein</option> <option value="-11" >(GMT -11:00) Midway Island, Samoa</option> <option value="-10" >(GMT -10:00) Hawaii</option> <option value="-9" >(GMT -9:00) Alaska</option> <option value="-8" >(GMT -8:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)</option> <option value="-7" >(GMT -7:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada)</option> <option value="-6" >(GMT -6:00) Central Time (US & Canada), Mexico City</option> <option value="-5" >(GMT -5:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada), Bogota, Lima</option> <option value="-4.5">(GMT -4:30) Caracas</option> <option value="-4" >(GMT -4:00) Atlantic Time (Canada), La Paz, Santiago</option> <option value="-3.5">(GMT -3:30) Newfoundland</option> <option value="-3" >(GMT -3:00) Brazil, Buenos Aires, Georgetown</option> <option value="-2" >(GMT -2:00) Mid-Atlantic</option> <option value="-1" >(GMT -1:00 hour) Azores, Cape Verde Islands</option> <option value="0" selected="selected">(GMT) Western Europe Time, London, Lisbon, Casablanca, Greenwich</option> <option value="1" >(GMT +1:00 hour) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris</option> <option value="2" >(GMT +2:00) Kaliningrad, South Africa, Cairo</option> <option value="3" >(GMT +3:00) Baghdad, Riyadh, Moscow, St. Petersburg</option> <option value="3.5" >(GMT +3:30) Tehran</option> <option value="4" >(GMT +4:00) Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Yerevan, Baku, Tbilisi</option> <option value="4.5" >(GMT +4:30) Kabul</option> <option value="5" >(GMT +5:00) Ekaterinburg, Islamabad, Karachi, Tashkent</option> <option value="5.5" >(GMT +5:30) Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, New Delhi</option> <option value="5.75">(GMT +5:45) Kathmandu</option> <option value="6" >(GMT +6:00) Almaty, Dhaka, Colombo</option> <option value="6.5" >(GMT +6:30) Yangon, Cocos Islands</option> <option value="7" >(GMT +7:00) Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta</option> <option value="8" >(GMT +8:00) Beijing, Perth, Singapore, Hong Kong</option> <option value="9" >(GMT +9:00) Tokyo, Seoul, Osaka, Sapporo, Yakutsk</option> <option value="9.5" >(GMT +9:30) Adelaide, Darwin</option> <option value="10" >(GMT +10:00) Eastern Australia, Guam, Vladivostok</option> <option value="11" >(GMT +11:00) Magadan, Solomon Islands, New Caledonia</option> <option value="12" >(GMT +12:00) Auckland, Wellington, Fiji, Kamchatka</option> </select>
Hand-coding a HTML drop down menu using the <select> and <option> tag with many options is a task that many developers/designers find tiring and frustrating.
That is why I’ve created this simple tool that generates the code for HTML drop down menu with as many options as you like!
The URL is : http://www.dynamicguru.com/html-drop-down-generator/
You simply have to enter the name of variable, (for the ‘name’ attribute of select tag) and start adding options in an easy and straight-forward fashion.
Once you are done with specifying option values, hit the Get code button and it will generate all the necessary HTML code along with a preview.
You can add as many options as you please!
If you require support for multiple option selection, check the ‘multiple’ check-box in the form.
This tool can be used to create HTML drop downs with too many options like a drop down menu of all countries, drop down menu of timezones, drop down menu of languages etc.
Let me know if you encounter any bugs or need help with any issue.
