Train timetable checker (Renfe Cercanias, Spain)

Project Description


What it does.

This script helps you to know when there is a train (Renfe, Spain) next to leave the configured station. Also, you can query the timetable of an specific route.

Nothing more, nothing less… :D

What I need.

To use pyrenfe, you only need:

  • python >= 2.7
  • requests (python module)
  • lxml (python module)

How to install it.

The package is uploaded to PyPI, so you just have to install the package with pip or easy_install.

$ sudo pip install pyrenfe

How to use

To run it, you only need to execute the program with the proper parameters. Here you have some examples:

See the help of the program.

$ pyrenfe --help

Check the next train between Atocha and Principe Pio (when it will leave and when will it arrive).

$ pyrenfe --origin 18000 --destine 10000

Show the same information, but inside a formatted table.

$ pyrenfe -o 18000 -d 10000 -p table

Check the timetable of all the trains between Atocha and Principe Pio for today.

$ pyrenfe --origin 18000 --destine 10000 --timetable

As you can see the origin and the destine are provided with numbers. Those numbers are the IDs of the stations. To take the IDs of your choice you have to fill the official form and then check in the POST which values are provided.

In the future I hope to add this functionality to the script (pull requests are accepted :D).
