hvv

Navigate the seedy underworld of Hamburg in a truly dystopian way!

What is this?

This is a command-line application for interfacing with the routing service of Hamburger Verkehrsverbund. It tends to be less clunky and frustrating than the official website when you are in a rush.

Perks

  • Fast: optimized for speed and perceived responsiveness!
  • Friendly: unspecified command-line arguments trigger an interactive mode!
  • Flexible: written in (mostly) readable and sane Perl!

Installation

hvv depends on Mojolicious and IO::Socket::SSL, external Perl modules. They are likely available in your distro's repository.

Other than that, just drop hvv in your path and you are good to go!

Misc

  • The oldest supported version of perl is v5.18. If something does not work under v5.18 (or newer), please let me know.
  • I'd like to thank knoellle for inspiration and helping me understand some API quirks, and Bendodroid for discovering lots of bugs and breaking things as often as possible.
