[MOD] Tube Travel Status Update
#1
This will only be of interest to people living in London, but I've written a short script to get live Tube updates and display it in XBMC.

I've modded my version of Cirrus Extended v2 to display it:

I've got a couple more tweaks to do and then I'll release the code.

Brilliant,

Can this be down with:

http://www.mybustracker.co.uk/ (user needs to enter bus code)
http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/ldb/ (user needs to enter station)

This would be awesome!

Great work el_p Smile

National Rail - yes, should be possible
Buses - not sure, may be possible for bus stop info - depends on how the data is provided.

I'll have a look later and let you know.

Very definitely possible - should be able to knock this out pretty quickly in fact! (Although I know I'll regret those words soon enough...)

That is fantasitc bro,

As soon as its out count me in! I could have done with this last night as i picked my GF up from the station and instead of having to follow it on line i can just pop it on the screen and watch in real time!

so we can have this imformation displayed?

The bus one is just time based arrivals at a particular stop. So if i enter my home bus stop i can literally watch it live on xbmc rather than on the web!

Amazing work el_p ... Amazing!

One step at a time Pat!

That one's a bit trickier than the live departure boards. I'll get that working first and then take a look at the live train information (although my personal experience of that service has been less than satisfactory!).

Slight delay here Nod I've got issues with my TV aerial so MythTV is not recording my wife's US dramas so I need to fix that first!

However, I've written a script to pull together the live train info so it's just a case of modding the skin to display it.

Hope to finish soon.

Almost there...

(and for the eagle-eyed who spotted that the first train is at 22:16 and "on time" but the time is 22:19, it's because I hadn't bothered to refresh the times for the screenshot!)

Looking great and eagerly awaiting a release Nod

Amazing work as usual dude.

The trouble is, these scripts tend not to be the download-and-run type, they work best when a skinner incorporates them directly into the skin (although I could conceivably change this).

Pat,

You should move to London. They're about to release the live bus stop data to developers.

When I get a chance I'll see if I can scrape the Edinburgh data for you.
