Kweather documentation/configuration?

I’ve been searching for the better part of 2 days, and the documentation for kweather seems non-existent: no man pages, kweather --help returns nothing useful. What I’m looking for is:

  • How to manually configure using kweatherrc. Some of the settings are self-explanatory (after adding a location), but others aren’t.

  • What is this for → /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.kde.kweather.service. Browsing dbus services comes up empty. Running /usr/bin/kweather --daemon doesn’t work.

    [D-BUS Service]
    Exec=/usr/bin/kweather --daemon
  • How to auto-refresh the currently-selected location.

In newer Debian KWeather is no longer included. Source code including documentation: GitHub - KDE/kweather: Weather application for Plasma Mobile

There’s no documentation on how to use/configure on the GitHub/GitLab pages, just how to compile/install and screenshots. I use Arch-based distros, so no Debian here. The console-based solution might be a good alternative, thanks for that.
