Unofficial Python bindings for the WalkScore API
(Unofficial) Python Bindings for the WalkScore API
The WalkScore Library is a Python library that provides Python bindings for the WalkScore API. It enables you to retrieve WalkScores, TransitScores, and BikeScores from the API within your Python code in Python versions 3.6 and higher.
The WalkScore Library is completely unaffiliated with WalkScore. It is entirely unofficial and was developed based on publicly available documentation of the WalkScore APIs published to the WalkScore website. Use of WalkScore is subject to WalkScore’s licenses and terms of service, and this library is not endorsed by WalkScore or any affiliates thereof.
COMPLETE DOCUMENTATION: http://walkscore-api.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html
To install the WalkScore Library, just execute:
$ pip install walkscore-api
- Python representation of WalkScores, TransitScores, and BikeScores.
- Easy serialization and deserialization of API responses to Python objects, dict objects or JSON
- Built-in back-off/retry logic if the WalkScore API is unstable at any mometn in time
- Robust error handling to surface meaningful information to help you debug your code.
from walkscore import WalkScoreAPI
You can either use a single object to communicate with all of the available WalkScore APIs, or initialize a single object for each API:
api_key = 'YOUR API KEY GOES HERE' walkscore_api = WalkScoreAPI(api_key = api_key)
address = '123 Anyplace St Anywhere, AK 12345' result = walkscore_api.get_score(latitude = 123.45, longitude = 54.321, address = address) # the WalkScore for the location result.walk_score # the TransitScore for the location result.transit_score # the BikeScore for the location result.bike_score
