The client for this application approached me because they were looking to create a product that allows drivers to quickly connect with mechanics when dealing with car problems. They also were loooking to enable hobbyist and mechanics unassociated with any particular shop the opportunity to gig-work and manage their own time. I was able to effectively create user personas, competitive audits, sketches, wireframes and a final prototype and send over final assets to an engineer in around three months.

Mausam is a CLI tool that displays the current weather conditions of your location as a desktop notification.



  • Cross-platform
  • Arbitrary shell commands are supported.
  • Constant feedback about the weather updates (..and TODO: current forecasts).



You may get a API key from OpenWeatherMap for free for a generous request rate a day.

After subscribing add it to the .env file as <your API key> without </>.


From Source

git clone
cd mausam
cargo build --release
cargo install --path .



Mausam is a a weather update desktop notifier made with Rust. By default, the temperature unit in the response is in Kelvin, but it is converted to Celsius before being displayed in the notification.

Running Mausam

Using Your Current Location

To display the weather conditions of your current location, simply run the following command in your terminal:

Running Mausam Periodically with Cron

Schedule cron jobs to run on a time interval for the current user. More information:


Before you can run Mausam periodically with cron, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Have crontab installed on your system
  • Have Mausam installed on your system, which can be done using cargo, the Rust's toolchain. After installation, the binary will be stored in /home/<YOUR_USER_NAME>/.cargo/bin/ by default.
  • Place the .env file in the path/to/mausam directory, as this file holds the secret WEATHER_API_KEY.
