command line interface for the website

Project description


This is a command line interface for the website.

Using it, you can script updating / publishing your velomobile's odometer value (overall km distance of your velomobile), so you do not need to manually log in / fill out a form / log out.


You need to have Python >= 3.5 installed. See if you don't have it already.

On a shell (linux terminal, windows cmd.exe), enter this to install the vmnlcli software:

pip3 install vmnlcli         # system-wide installation, might require root/admin
pip3 install --user vmnlcli  # install into user's home/profile directory

Only once, you need to find out the VMID (internal numerical identifier of for your velomobile):

vmnlcli --email '' --password 'CarsS*ck' vmid

Let's assume it displayed that your VMID is 12345678.

Now you can write 2 small wrapper scripts (they slightly differ for linux vs. windows).

Linux wrapper scripts


vmnlcli --email '' --password 'CarsS*ck' --vmid 12345678 update $1


vmnlcli --email '' --password 'CarsS*ck' --vmid 12345678 update --date $1 $2

Windows wrapper scripts


vmnlcli --email '' --password 'CarsS*ck' --vmid 12345678 update %1


vmnlcli --email '' --password 'CarsS*ck' --vmid 12345678 update --date %1 %2


You just came home, odometer showed 4321 km and you want to update the site:

myvm-now-km 4321

Or, you noted that your odometer showed 4321 km at 2019-12-31 and you want to update the site with that:

myvm-date-km 2019-12-31 4321
