MMM-PublicTransportVVO

  • MMM-PublicTransportVVO
    Display live departures from public passenger transport service of the 'Verkehrsverbund Oberelbe' (VVO).

MMM-PublicTransportVVO is a module for the MagicMirror project by Michael Teeuw.

It shows live public transport information for Verkehrsverbund Oberelbe (Germany) based on http://widgets.vvo-online.de api data.

You can enter a delay time for "How long does it take to get to my station?". Then the module calculates the next reachable departures and draws all unreachable departures in a different style or color.

Screenshot

The module looks like this:

Example for Dresden, Postplatz with  delay of 2 minutes, colored true, 5 minute timeorminuteBorder and departuretimeDecoration is true

Installation

Just clone the module into your MagicMirror modules folder:

git clone https://github.com/ChristianGeie/MMM-PublicTransportVVO.git

The stationId

How to get it

You will need a stationId for your module. Its a little bit tricky to get it. Go to https://www.vvo-online.de/de/fahrplan/haltestellenfahrplan/index.cshtml. Turn on the "Investigation-Mode" in your Browser, so you can see the HTML source code. Put your favorite station name in the input field do a search. After this, do a search in the source code for the same station name. when you find a block like this:

<select class="select " id="stopid" name="stopid" data-placeholder="Haltestelle" aria-label="Haltestelle" aria-required="true" data-stops-only="true" data-regional-only="true" data-pointstring="33000037|||Postplatz|5658730|4621656|0||" style="display: none;"><option value="33000037"><img style="display:inline" aria-label="Haltestelle" src="/assets/img/trans-icon/ico-stop-15x15.png" data-hoversrc="/assets/img/trans-icon/ico-stop-15x15-h.png" data-src="/assets/img/trans-icon/ico-stop-15x15.png"><span class="clearfix"><strong class="right"></strong><span class="displayname">Postplatz, Dresden</span></span></option></select>

The important flag is data-pointstring. The first integer is our stationId, in my example 33000037.

How to verify it

curl http://widgets.vvo-online.de/abfahrtsmonitor/Haltestelle.do?hst=33000037

returns a array including station name, location and given stationId like this

[[["Dresden"]],[["Postplatz","Dresden","33000037"]]]
