This is a command line tool I hope to develop overtime. In time it will be able to support the booking of rooms on the DCU Glasnevin Campus. Along with this, it will be able to display room timetables information as well as be able to check the availability of a room in a few different ways.
Currently the dcurooms script can show you which rooms in the Henry Grattan building and the School of Computing are free and booked currently.
git clone https://github.com/theycallmemac/dcurooms.git
python setup.py installas root to install.
You’ll want to log in to:
Clone this repo into your home directory by running:
git clone https://github.com/theycallmemac/dcurooms.git ~/
cd in the clone and run:
pip3 install -r requirements.txt
After this you can run:
alias dcurooms="python3 ~/dcurooms/scripts/dcurooms"
You can run this on your command line, or alternatively add it to ~/.zshrc
Buildings are referenced using their assigned building letters. The School of Computing is given the letter “L” and the Henry Grattan is given the letter “C”. Don’t ask me why it’s like that, it’s a very odd naming convention.
