google.directions 0.3

A python api to google directions


This lib allows you to query the google direction api from your python code, i.e. without a browser. The parser will give you a dict of anything that google knows about the direction: Distance, waypoints, corrected addresses and much more.

Although you have direct access to the parser output, you may also use the convenient api as seen in the Usage part below.


>>> from google.directions import GoogleDirections
>>> gd = GoogleDirections('your-google-directions-key')
>>> res = gd.query('berlin','paris')
>>> res.distance

You also have access to the raw parser data:

>>> res.result["Directions"]["Duration"]
{u'seconds': 34329, u'html': u'9 hours 32 mins'}

Have fun!


If you extend the gdapi, I’d love to get your extensions. Just mail me the code and I’ll make a release. See below for the mail address.
