1. This is probably the oddest website you will visit today…
It is the shipping forecast, but written in doge, put together by Chris Applegate.
2. It’s not just a joke. It’s an actual forecast for Dogger, Fisher, German Bite and all the others.
It is integrated with the Met Office reports and everything.
3. I asked Chris Applegate, who put the service together. He responded with…
The Met Office provides an XML feed of the Shipping Forecast concise which is updated several times a day.
I coded a bit of Python to process the feed and add Doge words to it, and then there’s a really simple webpage and script that just flashes up each forecast with random colours and placing.
