The British Rail Fares Engine is a library, API and user interface that can be used to return Britsh rail fares.
It relies on data from Rail Delivery Group. The rules around journey/fare validity are very specific to British rail and are not useful for other data sets.
It does not test the validity of journeys as it has no concept of a journey. The journey planner and fares service integrates fares from this fares engine with journeys from a journey planner and validates the two.
It is assumed that MySQL is installed locally and there is a database called
fares set up. The database credentials can be overriden by setting environment variables
If you have a username and password for DTD you can set the credentials with
SFTP_PASSWORD, you can also override the host with
SFTP_USERNAME=dtd_username SFTP_PASSWORD=dtd_password npm run data-download npm run data-clean
Starting the service will load some data into memory (~30 seconds) and then start the service on port 8002. Browsing
http://localhost:8002 will display the test user interface.
Issues and PRs are very welcome.
