Project Status Update: 'Track-a-Cat' 🚌


(Carl V. Lewis) #1

Hi Brigade! :bus:

For our next meetup, we’ll be having a more nuts-and-bolts hacknight and working in tandem with CAT planners and IT staff to build a framework and plan to implement real-time tracking in CAT’s trolley line.

So… I’m moving this project from ‘Proposed’ to ‘Active.’

We’ve got a GitHub repository set up. Here’s the project page on GitHub. Here’s the project page on opensavannah.org.

@brianontheroad is project lead. Comment on this topic if you’d like to be a contributor.

@grant.sparks and @bkoupal from CAT are on board and will be at the event on May 11.

Hey @grant.sparks or @bkoupal – can one of you two fill out this form from Google so that they can begin the process of setting up a real-time feed of the GTFS? https://support.google.com/transitpartners/contact/provide_live_updates

One of us could, but it asks for some information we don’t have handy.

So the awesome Sarah Walters has offered to help with the design bits of this.

We now own the domain trackacat.org. Boom. $6.99

I would very much like to be on board. I will be present Thursday. I’ve noticed in the GitHub repo that Jekyll theme was present is that the direction we are headed in ?


(Carl V. Lewis) #6

No, @morrell136, that was for a landing page. We’re going to let our direction be dictated by discussion Thurs. night. Will you be able to make it?


(Carl V. Lewis) #7

Duh, just read you were coming. Great!

I figured, think the duh is on me though couldn’t possibly see how ssg would be adequate for this endeavor. Looking forward to working with you guys.
