Usefull python wrapper for creating OpenMensa feeds

This small python library helps you to work with OpenMensa by:

  • support writing canteen feeds: The feed module makes it very easy to generate a valid OpenMensa Feed V2. This is in production use for the majority of canteens in OpenMensa.
  • python wrapper for OpenMensa data: Access data (canteens, meals) transparent from openmensa. (in development)

More information about OpenMensa and all possibilities for developers.

Documentation

Documentation is hosted by ReadTheDocs: for the Full documentation about PyOpenMensa

The documentation is created with Spinx and the documentation source code can be found in the doc/ directory.

tldr: Documentation

  1. You need Python 2.6, 2.7 or >=3.2.

  2. Install pyopenmensa:

    1. via pypi

      pip install pyopenmensa
      
    2. via git

      git clone git://github.com/mswart/pyopenmensa``
      
  3. Create Feed builder:

    # import LazyBuilder - the container for all meals
    from pyopenmensa.feed import LazyBuilder
    canteen = LazyBuilder() # canteen container
    
  4. Add feed data (PyOpenMensa can do basic parsing and converting):

    from datetime import date
    canteen.addMeal(date(2013, 3, 4), 'Hauptgericht', 'Gulasch',
        notes=['Mit Süßstoff', 'Schwein'],
        prices={'student': 203, 'other': '3,05 €'}
    )
    canteen.setDayClosed('5.3.2013')
    
  5. Receive XML Feed:

    print(canteen.toXMLFeed())
    

    And you have a valid OpenMensa V2 Feed:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <openmensa version="2.0" xmlns="http://openmensa.org/open-mensa-v2"  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" si:schemaLocation="http://openmensa.org/open-mensa-v2 http://openmensa.org/open-mensa-v2.xsd">
      <canteen>
        <day date="2013-03-04">
          <category name="Hauptgericht">
            <meal>
              <name>Gulasch</name>
              <note>Mit Süßstoff</note>
              <note>Schwein</note>
              <price role="other">3.05</price>
              <price role="student">2.03</price>
            </meal>
          </category>
        </day>
        <day date="2013-03-05">
          <closed/>
        </day>
      </canteen>
    </openmensa>
