    I just updated the module, after I noticed the layout is slightly broken when added to an area on the right side of the screen.

  • Hey @yawns, looks great!

    Even the differentiation between tram and bus, cool!
    I was surprised by the delay times as well, when I thought about building such a module (and thus starting to learn JS) I just had a rough look at the VRN API which doesn’t offer any real time data.

    I have two feature requests:

    • configurable number of shown connections
    • configurable direction (or destination)

    Hi, glad you like it.
    What do you mean with configurable direction?

  • I mean that I dont want to see all connections leaving from that particular stop but just in one direction.
    E.g. if I lived near a final destination I would just want to see the city-bound connections.

  • Hey @yawns!
    I finally had a deeper look into the API and your code and felt free to adapt it a little according to my needs.

    I did the following things:

    • added the so called poles to be defined in the personal config
      this enables one to choose certain tracks/platforms at a particular stop (this was what i spoke about when I replied to your post the first time)
    • added a time offset, which it would take one to reach the acutal stop (by foot).
    • correction of the current time format from 12h to 24h, which led to an error when I tested the offset. (from hh --> HH)
    • edited the readme

    Because I’m completely new to Github I hope I did the most of it right till now. Guess the next step would be to create a pull request if you like, right?

    Looks good, I like your changes. Yes please, submit a pull request and I will add it to the main repository so other users can benefit from your changes

  • Alright,
    i found a bug which led to still showing connections after the offset.

    Newest release has

    • offset bug fixed
    • new option to choose how many departures shall be shown (between 1 and 10)

    I’m gonna test this release a few days and then send a pull request 🙂

  • Alright, I sent you a pull request.

    Additionally, I’m currently testing another new feature where

    • delay is shown for all connections which have already started even if there is no delay.
