I want to install the weather app Stormcloud from the source on GitHub (found here)

I downloaded the zip file and opened the README file inside it. It told me to download node-webkit and to drag stormcloud to node-webkit. I don't understand what it is asking me to do. Can anyone help?

You need to download prebuilt Node Webkit binaries.

Download the zip file from and extract it.

Now open a terminal and enter the following command path/to/nw path/to/stormcloud
(You will need to change them according to the file locations)

You can make a .desktop file to associate Stormcloud with its icon and use the Unity launcher count feature.
