iRail is back
The copy of the letter to the NMBS/SNCB can be viewed here.
Minor modifications have been made to make it work correctly again with the new route planner of the NMBS/SNCB (changelog); and I’ll keep working on it to optimise it (next on the todo list is a better results page). Also, feedback is always welcome… But mail me; not the NMBS/SNCB. 😉
Also, dear NMBS/SNCB, please provide us with an API. Clearly, I’m not the only one interested in open data and APIs. This would make small projects like this quite a bit easier and would greatly increase the end quality. Data scraping just doesn’t fit web2.0.
Have a nice day,
Edit: Due to a bug in the querying, not all station information is displayed correctly and an error page is shown. Working to get it solved.
