The final goal will be to put a “I’m here” button which would tell the nearest stop and tell you the next useful bus to catch.

After learning a bit of Python to work with the Tumblr API I’ve noticed that it’s a quite nice web oriented language to use, so I choose it in combination with the Django project and programming dynamic web pages it’s not as bad as I remembered from high school. 🙂

After some searching I’ve found out that the tumblr team wrote an example in python to do just that (a bunch of person had the same problem apparently).
So, I learned python and went for it..
That’s what I came up with..
