Full configuration

The example below shows a full configuration with three sensors that showcase the various configuration options.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: rmvtransport
    scan_interval: 120
    timeout: 10
    next_departure:
      - station: 3000010
        time_offset: 5
        destinations:
          - 'Frankfurt (Main) Flughafen Regionalbahnhof'
          - 'Frankfurt (Main) Stadion'
        products:
          - 'RB'
          - 'RE'
          - 'Bus'
          - 'S-Bahn'
      - station: 3006907
        products: 'Bus'
        destinations: ['Wiesbaden Dernsches Gelände', 'Mainz Hauptbahnhof']
        name: Destination
      - station: 3006904
        lines: 'S8'
        max_journeys: 5
        products: 'S-Bahn'

The first sensor will return S-Bahn, bus, RB and RE trains departures from Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof to Frankfurt Airport or Stadium that are at least 5 minutes away.

The second sensor returns bus departures from Wiesbaden Hauptbahnhof going to Dernsches Gelände and Mainz Hauptbahnhof. To retrieve the time of the second departure, you would use state_attr('sensor.ENTITY_NAME', 'departures')[1].time.

The third sensor returns all S-Bahn trains from Mainz Hauptbahnhof for line S8.
