A couple of days ago, the public transport operator in Poznań started releasing real time timetable updates in a standard way (GTFS Realtime) . This means no more unstable API and simpler, less hacky code.
Also, I’d like to support potential Linux-based mobile devices.
I feel like rewriting Bimba from scratch (but after I finish my master’s degree…)
Recently, I released version 2.1 which brings alerts provided by ZTM but also cleaner and less ugly empty states and loading indicators.
Today, version 2.2.0 was released which uses new info from VM to show buses with low floor and ticket machines (or drivers that sell those).
However, the not-yet-big-but-major-already news is my friend finished the first version of trip planing and we’ve already started working on integrating it!
That was a long time (I know 😓) since I promised the v2.0 but I finally released it today. I hope it will soon appear in F-Droid. It’s the first release You can download from NotABug and the last one You can find on GitHub.
As promised, You can now use Virtual Monitor without offline timetable. I had to basically rewrite the logic from scratch but I hope it was worth it.
Also, repository has been moved to https://notabug.org/apiote/Bimba.
That one on Github will stay but is only a mirror (as explained in readme).
It seems like all known and pressing bugs has been squashed, timetable model has been rewritten and soon Bimba‘ll be out of 2.0-beta and into 2.0.
For the short-sighted roadmap:
- my friend said he’ll try to write trip planing logic,
- main feature written by me will be now to allow using Bimba without offline timetable.
