Hi there! I'm a PHP interface to the PTV live travel updates website. I scrape data, turn it into a common format, and then post it to Slack.
I'm currently in BETA.
To use me, clone me to a machine with PHP on it, copy
config.sample.php to a new file, enter your configuration in there, and set me up in cron like this:
*/7 4-23 * * * (cd /path/to/cloned/repository; php whatever-i-called-my-config-file.php)
This would run the script with your config every 7 minutes (or so), between 4am and midnight, every day.
You can also try setting up a Slack Slash command and typing eg.
/next5 in Slack to get the next 5 trains to leave from your stops. Additional arguments are supported -
outbound, some variations on those, and some station names. This service is also in BETA!
