Bike sharing at your terminal

Project description


Have you ever thought

Damn, I wish I could check the status of my local bike sharing network on a terminal

Well, now with cmdbikes you can!


This is a silly client to showcase python-citybikes, a python wrapper for the Citybikes API. You can learn more about the project at

If your network is not supported, add an issue or a PR on pybikes.


$ pip install cmdbikes


$ cmdbikes show --help
Usage: cmdbikes show [OPTIONS] ADDRESS

  Display status of station on a given address.

  --geocode / --no-geocode  Geocode station positions into a readable address
  -n INTEGER                Number of stations to show.
  --color / --no-color      Use colors on output
  --json                    Return JSON representation
  --help                    Show this message and exit.
