Hackerspace Status API

See this post to the Hackerspaces list for background:


My thought was that since we are only “open” during specific hours (say, Tues & Thurs 7pm - 9pm) we could just build a simple PHP script that outputs the open/closed status based on the day/time. At least for version 1.0

Here's what I have so far:

That should only show us as being open (to the public) if requested on Tues or Thurs from 7pm to 9pm. Any other time would show us being closed and available to 'members only'

If anyone feels like improving it (or just looking at the code) it is here:


  • 2016-03-14 - Added the camera info and updated github version
  • 2012-08-23 - Updated the file to version 0.13 and validated feed using
  • 2012-03-04 - Updated the file to version 0.12 and added in some feeds.

Future ideas:

  • We could add in an open status for when we have the club meetings. Each group meets at a specific day/time and we should know what those are…
