KItinerary: Supported Providers

More test data is always welcome and helpful, also for providers already listed as supported below. There's always some corner case we can improve :)

Project details: https://phabricator.kde.org/project/profile/280/

Note that the below list is inherently incomplete, a provider not being listed does not automatically imply it doesn't work, as it might still be covered by generic extractors, or by an existing custom extractor for the same backend system.

Data Formats

  • JSON-LD: HTML content containing structured data in JSON-LD format
  • Microdata: HTML content containing structured data in XML format
  • PDF: PDF files
  • HTML: HTML content without structured data
  • Text: plain text content
  • iCal: ical calendar files
  • PkPass: Apple Wallet pass files

Extractor Types

  • Generic - structured data: built-in extraction of JSON-LD and Microdata content
  • Generic - IATA BCBP: built-in extraction of IATA BarCoded Boarding Passes (BCBP)
  • Generic - PkPass: built-in extraction of Apple Wallet boarding passes and event tickets
  • Custom: custom extractor script

Train and Long-distance Bus Operators

Mixing train and bus operators here as some of them operate both types.

Operating area: If an operator is only active in a single country, that allows to make assumptions e.g. about the timezone of the destinations.

Ticket token types:

  • UIC 918.3 with RCT2 payload: the EU standard for international tickets
  • UIC 918.3 with vendor payload
  • Vendor-specific proprietary formats encoding (some) trip data
  • Vendor-specific proprietary formats not encoding trip data

Ticket token supported: means you can use KDE Itinerary to validate your ticket on automatic scanners or during manual ticket inspections.
