This is a Plasma data engine, applet and runner for public transport timetable data. The applet shows a departure/arrival board for a given stop. It can also show journeys to or from the given "home stop". It displays additional information like delays, news about journeys, routes, vehicle types (with icons). Timetable data is available for trams, buses, subway, trains, ferries and planes (using flightstats.com). You can set alarms for departures and filter departures (by type of vehicle, target/origin, delay, transport line string/number, intermediate stops). Filters can also be combined.
Timetable data gets received from provider plugins. Since version 0.11 there are two types of plugins: GTFS and script providers. Script providers need a network connection and can be used to read timetable data from any document type, eg. XML, binary or HTML. GTFS providers only need to import the GTFS feed once and can then be used offline (but a network connection can be used for GTFS-realtime).

04.12.2012: Version 0.11 alpha released

To install PublicTransport download a package for your distribution. If there is no such package you can ask the appropriate packagers for your distribution to create one. Please leave a comment if a new package is created or if you use a package not mentioned in the download list here, so that I can add it.
If you want to install PublicTransport, but there are no packages available for you (yet?) or you want to try the newest version with no new package yet, you can use the installer script (install.sh) included in the Sources download.
But note that software installed with that installer script isn't managed by your package manager in any way and may produce conflicts with installed packages, eg. if PublicTransport is already installed via the package manager. The script should be quite easy to use and also lets you uninstall the software again. You need GIT to use the installer, because the sources are actually downloaded using GIT by the script (from git://anongit.kde.org/publictransport).

There's also a script for packagers, that can download tarballs for all PublicTransport components for a specific version.
You can clone the GIT repository from git://anongit.kde.org/publictransport (read only), which also clones all history. From your local clone of the repository you can checkout all tagged versions (see the HINTS_FOR_PACKAGE_MAINTAINERS file).
If you want to contribute code, you need a KDE account and you can clone the repository with SSH from this URL: git@git.kde.org:publictransport (read + write). You can of course also send me patches via email.

Note: The Sources tarball does not contain the sources, but a script to download them from it's GIT repository and the translations from KDE's SVN. The script asks for the version to compile and install.

Adding a Service Provider Plugin
- Install TimetableMate, maybe not included in the packages, but in the source archive.
- The filenames start with the country code, followed by "_" and an abbreviation of the service provider, e.g. "ch_sbb" for switzerland, service provider "SBB".
- You can test your script and the URLs with TimetableMate. It also offers syntax completion with documentation and templates for the parser functions, that get called by the data engine.
- Also works for GTFS providers
- After installation of your plugin you can open the configuration dialog of the public transport applet and the new provider should be in there.
- You can also open/edit existing providers by simply clicking "Open in TimetableMate..." in the provider data dialog (accessible from the configuration dialog).
- Checkout the documentation of the data engine, it contains much information about the data sources of the engine and how to create new provider plugins.

You are welcome to optimize the scripts in the existing providers in the "serviceProviders" directory in the data engine source directory.

Comments are appreciated.


(version 0.11 beta)
Many crash/bug fixes, visual polishing, see http://fpuelz-kde.blogspot.de/. (The install.sh script is actually unchanged, just select the new version)

(version 0.11 alpha 2)
Providers are now hosted on openDesktop.org, download via GHNS, many fixes etc. See http://fpuelz-kde.blogspot.de/. (The install.sh script is actually unchanged, just select the new version)

(version 0.11 alpha)
Many improvements, new features, GTFS support, etc. See http://fpuelz-kde.blogspot.de/.
Update: Improved install script, automatically select latest version for installation, show available versions sorted by date, allow switching to another version when starting the script again with the repository already cloned

You're right, it was missing since version 0.5, where I introduced the accessor info xmls.. Sorry. I have now created an xml for vrn.de and will include it in the next version.

 No Icons

Hi, very nice plasmoid!
But there are no icons. I installed them from source and they are in "/usr/share/icons/oxygen/" but they aren't shown in the applet. A reboot didn't help.
Anything I can do?

this is awesome, thank you very much.
and i got a bug for you.
the "max. shown depatures" seems to not take into account that i filtered the buses. eg. when setting the limit to 5 it will only show me 1 subway.

Hi, first of all thanks for this nice plasmoid.

However there is a small bug. It displays the same connection twice (with one minute delay). This might be due to the fact, that there is another bus stop nearby...

I am using version 0.5.4 and the db.de data provider. My home stop is: "Universität Mensa, Saarbrücken"

Other random suggestions:
- Allow the use of regular expressions as filters
- Allow to filter by line

But all in all, it is really working great :-)

 install problems

 by yeus on: Sep 29 2009
Score 50%

first I tried the deb packages...

(I am using kubuntu 64)

I have to --force-architecture the debian-packages because of 64bit version...

Applet shows up in Applet list. But when I drag it onto the desktoip it says:
"Component not found: publictransportation"

After this I tried the sources.. but cmake fails with an Error:

"CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:4 (install):
install FILES given no DESTINATION!"

any ideas?

Hm.. Where does cmake give the error? When configuring the applet, the data source or the icons?
And which version of KDE are you using? It's a bit strange, as all the CMakeLists.txt have correct DESTINATIONs. Maybe your build environment isn't correctly setup or you're missing some dev-packages for KDE4.

But this should solve your problem with the 32-bit-deb-package:
Move the file /usr/lib/kde4/plasma_applet_publictransport.so to
/usr/lib64/kde4/plasma_applet_publictransport.so. And also move the data engine file to the lib64-directory.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
