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.

bah.. what am i saying.. all messages active and inactive should be non-intrusive.. if it's not life or dead situation i wanna look at it when i have time for it :)

that's what i meant.. they are fixing active dialog so it pops up when the applet is not big enough.. but yea it's not ideal for error messages.. the passive messages should be non-intrusive.. the same thing annoys me with system tray messages for 2 year now :p

It's still inside the applet if it's big enough. I have the weather applet in a panel, so it popped up also before. But I don't know any other plasmoid that shows such a popup message. I don't think there's much broken now, maybe only visible with publicTransport ;)
But popup messages of all online applets when the network goes down isn't too nice ;)

ehm and i have problem with filters..
don't know how can i send you debug but i can reproduce it.. i have 7 active plasmoids and when i change filter in the one that is set to +30 mins plasma crashes..

I just fixed a crash when changing the filter settings. I think that's also your bug :)
It crashed when it tried to add a departure that was already added to the model. I don't know why it tries that but at least it doesn't crash anymore.

Report

yep.. i tried 0.8.1 and it's not crashing anymore :) but there's one small thing: after i change filter it takes little while to apply first departure (+30mins) filter

Report

Yes, the "first departure" thing isn't a filter, it's just saying what data you want to download (and then filter it).
There must be something wrong when it displays departures before the given "first departure" time.
I think it's because it already has downloaded data when the filter gets changed. Therefore the data contains earlier departures, which should be sorted out. So I'll make it sort out old departures when filters change.

Report

takanowaka

yea.. that's the solution and i realized that this situation is just corner case because of imhd.sk accessor ;) i mean imhd.sk can only search departures for "now" that's why it always contains departures before "first departure"

Report

it's probably because it only applies filter and +30 is applied on another applet refresh

I'll try to fix that. It could be somehow because there're no departures for that stop. Maybe it's fixed if the applets adjust to changed global settings.

hi.. after adding plasmoid on desktop plasma freezed (or better said it became extremely slow.. it took cca 3 mins to show plasmoid on desktop) don't know if this helps but here's log from plasmoidviewer http://dpaste.com/176727/

Report

Hm, the log doesn't have much information in it. But I guess plasmoidviewer didn't freeze? Is the bug reproducible? Maybe there were "bad" settings from old versions that caused something to go wrong.
Did you have filters in your config? Or alarms (well I don't think as you just updated to 0.8)?

Report

takanowaka

yes i can reproduce it.. actually it's preventing me from using new version :) i didn't have any active filter if i remember correctly.. and nope plasmoidviewer didn't freeze.. so i guess you're right about those old settings.. where are they stored? i'll delete them and try again

Report

The settings are in ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc. There are global settings for the applet in [AppletGlobals][plasma_applet_publictransport], try to delete those first. If that doesn't help the per-applet settings are in something like this

[Containments][X][Applets][X]
geometry=872,489,400,300
immutability=1
plugin=publictransport
zvalue=568. But that's only stored for applets that are already in the desktop.

Please send me the "bad" settings, so I can try to fix the freeze.

good news is that removing settings from plasma-desktop-appletsrc solved the problem; bad news is that due some mysterious lock up of that file i edited it in notepad and after i saved changes i realized it's not making backups like kate - so the bad settings are lost.. sorry :|

Hi,

thanks for the coll plasmoid and your very quick help on compiling it on KDE 4.3 (Kubuntu Karmic).

hey.. i was thinking about making 2 stop sets for 1 bus stop (each should use separate filter) so i get:
1st stop set with destination city center and
2nd stop set with destination outer part of city
but this would require filter by stop sets and some kind of id (name) for each stop set so you can bind filters to it
don't know if this is really necessary but that's up to you to decide ;)

Report

fpuelz

That's already possible: 1. in the details of the stop settings dialog is a combobox for choosing the filter config for the stop settings. 2. In the filter page there's a tab "Filter Uses" where you can set the filter config for each stop settings (but that might not work with the current version, I've fixed that for the next release).

ehm.. i'm still thinking about combining those stop sets and this is what i came up with.. not sure if it's possible though..

Hullo.

I really like this plasmoid, but the problem is that the ebuild is quite outdated — 0.5.4 to be exact.

It'd be way cool if it got updated :]
