Ever spent time dumbly calculating when IRCTC.com will open ticket counter for Diwali or some important festivals and holidays?
That's why I built this handy utility. Now don't miss any more money on expensive "Redbuses"!
$ gem install irctc
It's a command-line awesomness.
To find when the counter opens for a future date, use the
$ irctc -f 'nov 23, 2012' Don't forget to book in '2' days! For the given date, tickets are available from this date: (Thu) Jul 26, 2012 $ irctc -f 'nov 13, 2012' Ticket counter already opened '8' days ago. For the given date, tickets are available from this date: (Mon) Jul 16, 2012
To find for what future date the counter opens for the given date, use the
$ irctc -p 'jul 24, 2012' On the given date, tickets are available for this date: (Wed) Nov 21, 2012
Note: As of now, the irctc ticket counter opens 120 days before the day you need to travel.
More awesome functionality can be added! For example, a gmail integration would be great. It could send mail for the interested people for their preferred days. I'm working on it already. Feel great to provide a helping hand.
