What is this?

This is a web version of the iOS app SF Live Bus, which shows all of SF MUNI approximately in real-time: Inbound & Outbound. This version was directly inspired by the London Underground version that made the rounds a few weeks ago.

How does it work?

The NextBus API is hit to fetch the data and populate a FirebaseFirebase endpoint — making it really easy to consume on the web in real-time. The Firebase related code is about 50 lines of JavaScript on the front end.
