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.

Warning

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


Installation

To install the WalkScore Library, just execute:

$ pip install walkscore-api

Dependencies

Python 3.x

Key WalkScore Features

  • 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.

Hello, World and Basic Usage

1. Import the WalkScore API

from walkscore import WalkScoreAPI

2. Initialize the API

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)

3. Retrieve a Score

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
