Indego Bike Share PHP Library

About

I am mostly fooling around with PHP to get more used to object-orientation as opposed to doing just procedural PHP all of the time. In my journey, I've made a re-usable PHP library for the Philadelphia Indego Bike Share API!

Check out the City of Philadelphia GitHub if you think this library is interesting!

Example

Code

When combined with the provided Indego class, the following code will generate the example output in the next section:

// Require the Indego class
require_once('Indego.class.php');

// Instantiate the Indego class which will immediately discover all of the stations
$indego = new Indego;

// Just get "university" stations
$uni_stations = $indego->getStations('university');

print_r($uni_stations);

Providing a argument/filter to getStations() to return a list of stations only limits the results within the Indego class.

Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a signifcant amount of documentation for the API being used nor does there seem to be any parameters available to limit the stations being retrieved from the API.

Calling getStations() without any arguments will return a list of all (currently, 103) stations!

Command-line script

The included indego-cli.php script is a fun command-line PHP script that I wrote which uses the Indego class/library to get the bike share data from the citys API!
