Description:

This is a Plasma data engine, applet and runner for public transport timetable data. The applet shows a departure/arrival board for a given stop. It can also show journeys to or from the given "home stop". It displays additional information like delays, news about journeys, routes, vehicle types (with icons). Timetable data is available for trams, buses, subway, trains, ferries and planes (using flightstats.com). You can set alarms for departures and filter departures (by type of vehicle, target/origin, delay, transport line string/number, intermediate stops). Filters can also be combined.
Timetable data gets received from provider plugins. Since version 0.11 there are two types of plugins: GTFS and script providers. Script providers need a network connection and can be used to read timetable data from any document type, eg. XML, binary or HTML. GTFS providers only need to import the GTFS feed once and can then be used offline (but a network connection can be used for GTFS-realtime).

Installation
To install PublicTransport download a package for your distribution. If there is no such package you can ask the appropriate packagers for your distribution to create one. Please leave a comment if a new package is created or if you use a package not mentioned in the download list here, so that I can add it.
If you want to install PublicTransport, but there are no packages available for you (yet?) or you want to try the newest version with no new package yet, you can use the installer script (install.sh) included in the Sources download.
But note that software installed with that installer script isn't managed by your package manager in any way and may produce conflicts with installed packages, eg. if PublicTransport is already installed via the package manager. The script should be quite easy to use and also lets you uninstall the software again. You need GIT to use the installer, because the sources are actually downloaded using GIT by the script (from git://anongit.kde.org/publictransport).

There's also a script for packagers, that can download tarballs for all PublicTransport components for a specific version.
You can clone the GIT repository from git://anongit.kde.org/publictransport (read only), which also clones all history. From your local clone of the repository you can checkout all tagged versions (see the HINTS_FOR_PACKAGE_MAINTAINERS file).
If you want to contribute code, you need a KDE account and you can clone the repository with SSH from this URL: git@git.kde.org:publictransport (read + write). You can of course also send me patches via email.

Note: The Sources tarball does not contain the sources, but a script to download them from it's GIT repository and the translations from KDE's SVN. The script asks for the version to compile and install.

Adding a Service Provider Plugin
- Install TimetableMate, maybe not included in the packages, but in the source archive.
- The filenames start with the country code, followed by "_" and an abbreviation of the service provider, e.g. "ch_sbb" for switzerland, service provider "SBB".
- You can test your script and the URLs with TimetableMate. It also offers syntax completion with documentation and templates for the parser functions, that get called by the data engine.
- Also works for GTFS providers
- After installation of your plugin you can open the configuration dialog of the public transport applet and the new provider should be in there.
- You can also open/edit existing providers by simply clicking "Open in TimetableMate..." in the provider data dialog (accessible from the configuration dialog).
- Checkout the documentation of the data engine, it contains much information about the data sources of the engine and how to create new provider plugins.

You are welcome to optimize the scripts in the existing providers in the "serviceProviders" directory in the data engine source directory.

Comments are appreciated.

It's the kwebkit issue. I'll try it again.

This is the error message. I did install kwebkitpart.

/home/carl/Downloads/Second/src/publictransport-0.10beta1_timetablemate-0.2.2/timetablemate-0.2.2/src/timetablemate.cpp:60:23: fatal error: KWebKitPart: No such file or directory

Ok, did you also install the development package, kwebkitpart-dev or kwebkitpart-devel?

Hmm. We don't have such a package, kwebkitpart-dev or development.

Report

Yes, only TimetableMate needs KWebKitPart. To compile it, the development files (headers) are needed. If there are no packages available for Arch, you would have to install the header files yourself from the KWebKitPart sources to compile TimetableMate.
Maybe I can make KWebKitPart usage optional. But TimetableMate is only needed to add support for new service providers, so it's not needed by the average user.

In fact I'm trying to make a package for Arch Linux, by using the compile scripts in each of the subdirectories. I succeeded, but only by not including timetablemate.

A new version. Great.

Is it possible to change the conjunction of the filter?
I want to to this:
if ( (vehicle = S or RB) AND ( (destination = frankfurt) OR (destination = bad soden))

Destination filters work just fine, but I need to add vehicle type in order to get rid of the busses to frankfurt. But if I add the vehicle type filter I get trains to everywhere else...

Thank you

Hi,
you can write the filter like this:

if ( ((vehicle = S or RB) AND (destination = frankfurt)) OR ((vehicle = S or RB) AND (destination = bad soden)) )

Thanks for the ebuild-update :)

Yeah this works fine.
I missed the small + to use multiple querys in the same filter...

Report

Finswimmer

Unfortunaly, it does not work quite well.
I am using above filter combination.

It shows RB 60 Frankfurt till I update timetable.
If I disable and enable the filter RB 60 is shown until I (manually) update the timetable.

I started it with plasmoidviewer publictransport from konsole. Only while editing the filter this was shown:
Object::disconnect: No such slot QObject::dataUpdated(QString,Plasma::DataEngine::Data)
Object::disconnect: (sender name: 'Stops de_rmv|stop=Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof')


After that (enabling/disabling filter) does not show any output.

What could be the problem?

Thank you

Finswimmer

Hm.
RE 60 is shown correctly while RB 60 is not.
Strange.

(If you want test it, the Stop is Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof and I am using RMV)

Report

Finswimmer

I tested the new .10beta. The problem still exists. It happens also when the only filter is "target contains frankfurt". It shows 2 RB and one Airport-Bus, only RB disappears.

Hi!
Thanks for that applet. I'd really love to use your installer, but it filas in two ways:
- my ubuntu uses sudo by default, root password is not set - auth fails, somehow replacing 'su' with 'sudo' doesn't work so far
- it fails to detect that installation failed.

A very nice script which allows to compile things and build a distribution package automagically is provided with the YaWP-applet - maybe you can adapt that script a little?

(un-)installation on ubuntu works when one replaces "su" with "sudo" and removes the -c option and the quote signs around the command in that line, e.g.
Quote: sudo ./.scripts/helper_install.sh -u $installDataEnginePT -v $installDataEngineOSM -w $installAppletPT -x $installRunnerPT -y $installIconsPT -z $installTTMate -s $show_install_output

sudo works for me, too on openSuse. Maybe I can somehow check if "sudo" is available and otherwise try "su". Something like checking if "whereis sudo" returns something (I'm no shell script expert ;)).
I'll look into how it's done with the YaWP-applet.

The "CMakeLists.txt" for TimetableMate is bad. Instead of

target_link_libraries( timetablemate ... kwebkit )

it should be
target_link_libraries( timetablemate ... ${KDE4_WEBKIT_LIBS} )

Then it compiles and works again :)
Will be in the next version.
