MMM-socialbicycles

Station monitor for the socialbicycles (e.g. Wavelo in Kraków, Poland) bike-sharing network.

This module is an extension of the amazing MagicMirror2 project by MichMich which has inspired me to share my coding skills with others as well. Check it out, you know you want to :).

This module is based on MMM-nextbike by yo-less. Thanks for the great work!

Current version

v1.0.0

Languages

As of version 1.0.0, MMM-socialbicycles features language support for Polish (pl), German (de) and English (en) mirrors.

Prerequisite

A working installation of MagicMirror2

Dependencies

Installation

  1. Navigate into your MagicMirror's modules folder.
  2. Execute git clone https://github.com/0lek/MMM-socialbicycles.git.
  3. Execute cd MMM-socialbicycles.
  4. Execute npm install.

Module behavior

Please note that this module auto-creates a module header which displays the name of the chosen socialbicycles station.
It is therefore recommended not to add a 'header' entry to your config.js for this module.

This module automatically disappears from your mirror as soon as a station has run out of bikes. It reappears shortly after the first bike has been returned to your chosen station.

This module has been programmed to allow for multiple instances. Simply add more MMM-socialbicycles config entries to your config.js file to display multiple stations and configure them according to your needs.

Configuration

Sample minimum configuration entry for your ~/MagicMirror/config/config.js:

...

{
    module: 'MMM-socialbicycles',
    position: 'top_left',
    config: {
        stationID: '', 		// Your station ID
        sobiAccessToken: ''	// You Oauth access token
    }
} 							// If this isn't your last module, add a comma after the bracket

...

Getting an access token

Socialbicycles has introduced a mandatory OAuth2 authentication (or maybe I just can't get basic HTTP auth to work :)). Anyways, you need an access token. For that you need to register your app here:

https://app.socialbicycles.com/oauth/applications

It's all self-explanatory. You don't need the clientID or clientSecret (for now), only the access token at the bottom.

Figuring out the correct cityID and stationID

That's a little bit complicated, but not too much. What I did - example based on Wavelo, but should be same for other systems that use Socialbicycles infrastructure.

  1. Go to en.wavelo.pl
  2. Click on map
  3. Right click on the map and select "Inspect Element" (for Safari)
  4. Select the right-last tab, "Network"
  5. Now click on the station in the map that you're interested in and observe the element inspector. You'll be looking for a new row with a digit-only name and the domain app.socialbicycles.com.

Example

  1. Bingo! The number in the name column is the ID you want. You can right-click on the item and select "Open in New Tab". You'll get a JSON with all the data that's available. You can double-check there.
  2. Enter the ID into the config.js file. That's it!
