Python library for the University of Edinburgh's T@Ed Timetabling Service

Project Description


Python library for the University of Edinburgh's [T@Ed Timetabling Service][ted].

**Disclaimer: This library has not been condoned by the University of Edinburgh.**

`python-ted` is built by students, and simply scrapes the existing timetable web service,
since no APIs or timetabling data have been released by the university.

## Installation

pip install python-ted

### Requires

- [`icalendar`][icalendar]
- [`lxml`](
- [`requests`](

## Usage

>>> import icalendar
>>> import ted

# Initialise client and download course-list
>>> timetable = ted.Client()

# Regex match against course list:
>>> import re
>>> timetable.match(re.compile('Data'))
[<Course: INFR08015 (Informatics 1 - Data and Analysis)>, <Course: ...>, ...]
>>> timetable.match(re.compile('INFR08015'))
[<Course: INFR08015 (Informatics 1 - Data and Analysis)>]

# Get a specific course by course-code
>>> timetable.course(code='INFR08015')
<Course: INFR08015 (Informatics 1 - Data and Analysis)>
>>> timetable.course(code='invalid course code')

Each `Course` object has 3 main attributes:

- `title`: human-readable course name.
- `code`: University of Edinburgh course code (seen on timetables or exam scripts).
- `identifier`: T@Ed-specific course identifier.

>>> course = timetable.course(code='INFR08015')

# Scrape T@Ed for list of weekly course events, and build an ical calendar
>>> events =
>>> cal = timetable.calendar(events)

# Render calendar to a bytestring
>>> cal.to_ical()


- Get API access for T@Ed.
