A CLI tool for checking your Presto card balance.
I wrote about this tool on my blog: https://blog.cedricblondeau.com/2017/12/23/check-your-presto-card-balance-in-a-terminal-using-presto-card-cli/
yarn global add presto-card-cli
Requires NodeJS 8+.
The tool requires the user to set up credentials before accessing the balance.
# Set credentials presto-card set-credentials ? Enter a Presto account username: <username> ? Enter the password for this Presto account: <password> # Print balance for a given user, username is a required argument presto-card balance <username>
How does it work?
This tool uses node-keytar to store credentials. On macOS the passwords are managed by the Keychain, on Linux they are managed by the Secret Service API/libsecret, and on Windows they are managed by Credential Vault.
Get the balance
This tool uses presto-card-js as a back end.
SyntaxError: Unexpected token error
This may happen when using an old version of NodeJS. This tool requires NodeJS 8+.
Error: Module version mismatch. Expected 48, got 59. or equivalent
This may happen if
presto-card-cli has been installed with a different version of NodeJS than the current one. Re-installing may help.
Q: I have only one card and it's kind of boring to type my username again and again when I want to check my balance. Can't we set up a default account?
Not at this time. But we can create an alias in the meantime.
alias pb='presto-card balance supercat'
Q: What if I don't have a Presto account? Can I use this tool with a Presto card number?
Not at this time.
