Ruby GTFS-realtime Language Bindings

Gem Version

Provides Ruby classes generated from the GTFS-realtime Protocol Buffer specification. These classes will allow you to parse a binary Protocol Buffer GTFS-realtime data feed into Ruby objects.

Deprecated

As of February 2019, the official google-protobuf Google protoc tool doesn't support extensions in proto2 files. A 3rd party tool, ruby-protocol-buffers, can be installed using gem install ruby-protocol-buffers, but doesn't seem to match the existing structure of the Ruby GTFS-rt bindings, as the unit tests fail. As a result we are deprecating the Ruby bindings until official support for proto2 files is implemented in the Google protocol buffer tools.

Add the Dependency

To use the gtfs-realtime-bindings classes in your own project, you need to first install the Ruby gem:

gem install gtfs-realtime-bindings

Example Code

The following code snippet demonstrates downloading a GTFS-realtime data feed from a particular URL, parsing it as a FeedMessage (the root type of the GTFS-realtime schema), and iterating over the results.

require 'protobuf'
require 'google/transit/gtfs-realtime.pb'
require 'net/http'
require 'uri'

data = Net::HTTP.get(URI.parse("URL OF YOUR GTFS-REALTIME SOURCE GOES HERE"))
feed = Transit_realtime::FeedMessage.decode(data)
for entity in feed.entity do
  if entity.field?(:trip_update)
    p entity.trip_update
  end
end
