Help wanted: update sbt getting-started guide for Yahoo changes

#1

see https://github.com/sbt/website/issues/758

Yahoo has deprecated the API that the example relied on. Could someone volunteer to find a replacement…? (It can be pretty much any web API that’s simple enough to use in a short example like this.)

#2

The replacement is https://www.metaweather.com/api/.

#3

I’ll create a pull request this week and it will be a great opportunity for me since I am learning sbt now.

By the way, is there any contribution guideline I should follow?

We do but since this is more about creating a sample application in Scala, not making changes to sbt itself, I don’t think you have to worry too much about the guidelines.

all done at https://github.com/sbt/website/pull/765, thank you Lei Zhao!
