Configuration widget for CycleStreet routing

Marble is a virtual globe and world atlas — your Swiss army knife for maps. Find your way and explore the world!

We'd like to integrate as a routing backend in Marble.

  • Have a look at the API at
  • Create a configuration widget for the cyclestreets plugin that allows changing the following parameters:
    • plan, in the user interface a label "Route type:" and a combobox with the values of the plan attribute. Default should be "balanced" as recommended by CycleStreets.
    • speed, another combox with the values "slow (16 km/h)", "normal (20 km/h)" and "fast (24 km/h)". Ideally the speed values shown in the combobox respect Marble's units settings (i.e. prints 10/12/15 miles when miles are selected by the user)
  • Make sure the values selected by the user are correctly saved and restored when restarting Marble
  • Integrate the selected values in API calls and test that they're respected by testing a couple of routes (test that the speed setting has an effect by temporarily printing the "time" attribute of the returned route to the shell)
