Python API for Velib.

Project description

Veliberator provides a Python API for getting informations about the stations of the Velib’ bike renting network.


The packages provides few binaries to tests and to initialize the datas.


    Must be used at first to grab the general datas about the stations.


    A test script for finding a free place to park a bike.


    Launch the tests suites packaged in the module.


To retrieve the informtions of a station you only have to have the ID of the station, and run to initiate the data.

The in your python interpreter :

>>> from veliberator.stations import Station
>>> station = Station(42008)
>>> station.informations.address

The informations attributes contains many data such as :

  • address

  • postal_code

  • city

  • lat (the latitude of GPS coordonates)

  • lng (the longitude of GPS coordonates)

  • opened (boolean who told if the station is open)

  • bonus (boolean who told if the station is a bonus station)

You could retrieve the live status of the station easily :

>>> station.status
>>> station.get_status()
>>> station.status
{'available': 24, 'ticket': True, 'total': 25, 'free': 0, 'datetime': datetime.datetime(2009, 7, 17, 12, 00, 00, 000000)}

And we can retrieve the station ids around our station by distance :

>>> station.get_stations_around()
[42006, 42010, 42012, 42014, 42016]
>>> station.get_stations_around(3)
[42006, 42010, 42012]

Other methods on the Station objects are available, but the source is often more explicit.
