in other news, DE ICE trains have an API, I now have a fish snippet that formats it for my status bar if it detects that I'm on an ICE train's WiFi~
(uses Font Awesome for the icons, I find it much easier to get working in awesomewm as a fallback font than getting an emoji font to cooperate in it)
(Also I can show my battery level with the different battery icons!)
Now with Eurostar support!
Someone pointed out that I forgot to put a license in here
I usually default to MIT for historical reasons, but what are people’s thoughts on FOSS licenses?
@embr use the strongest copyleft you can and keep software free. People having to copyleft their own stuff to use it is a feature, not a bug.
@embr the strongest copylefts are the AGPL and GPL. If all you wasn’t here is a disclaimer of liability, though, that’s the opposite. You probably want 0-clause BSD or CC0. But I’d urge you to consider at least the MPL. It takes almost no effort to comply with, and you still get freedom protections on your code.
My Eurostar scraping is extremely cursed
@embr Yes 😟 I'm going to be in London soon so giving up. I couldn't get at the websocket data from the debugging tools in chrome or firefox, not sure whats going on there.
I ported the ICE API stuff to powerline, but it needs fixing to run the web requests in a background thread to make it performant. (and it needs a popup alarm to wanr you when there is 10 mins before your destination station).
