Note: 

You need to enable the repository of rinigus to install this app!

 

Note 2:

You need to disable the map on a Jolla 1 phone!

 

Laufhelden is a sport tracking application for Sailfish OS. Laufhelden is german, meaning run heros.

I made this app mainly because Meerun is not maintained anymore. Features are well behind Meerun but there are some little advantages.
Meerun is closed source meaning if the developer won't maintain any longer, the app will die. Laufhelden is opensource so that problem should be avoided.
I am working out a few month with the app and really enjoy it, hope you also will!

To import workouts you can place GPX files in the directory ~/Laufhelden/
GPX files exported from Meerun will be recognized and hopefully workout type as well as a few other things will be imported.

Current features are:
- recording workouts
- workout types: running, road bike, mountainbike, walking, inline skating, skiing
- view recorded tracks and show statistics
- save track as GPX file
- autosave every minute
- connecting to bluetooth heart rate device (supports Zephyr HxM BT and Polar Wearlink iWL, no BLE)
- show battery level of heart rate device
- alarm thresholds with voice output for heart rate too high/low and pace too high/low
- default music player is paused and resumed when alarm threshold is triggered
- 4 display modes for record screen: AMOLED mode, LCD mode, silica mode, night mode
- automatic night mode
- upload workouts to sports-tracker.com
- upload workouts to strava
- pebble integration (needs Rockpool 1.4)
- lock page
- metric/imperial units

 

I hope there is a lot to come in the future. I am only one person so don't expect any of these too soon.
- voice announcements (distance, duration, heart rate, average pace, ...)
- better statistics with diagrams
- indoor workouts without GPS
- BLE heart rate devices support (waiting for kimmoli: https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-x/development/rom-sailfish-os-t...)

Yes, Mapbox installed successfully as far as I can tell. I haven't tried using terminal. That wasn't something I had expected I'd need to do.

ABreen's picture

I've downloaded the mapbox component. Laufhelden shows installing but never finishes installing on my Sony Xperia X running Sailfish X

jdrescher's picture

Mapbox GL native bindings was installed successfully?

Have you tried pkcon refresh in the terminal?

Trying to upgrade from 0.9.7-8 to 0.9.9-2 on XperiaX using Warehouse, getting Error Status: dep-resolution-failed Extra details: nothing provides mapboxgl-qml needed by harbour-laufhelden-0.9.8.9.armv7hl

Current version works fine! Upgrade fails. So is there something to do to get it work?

jdrescher's picture

You need to enable the repository of rinigus to get the mapbox-qml component.

sf_user's picture

Tried but didn't manage. Sorry, I'm a user not a developer. Thanks anyway. So I have to keep using the old version.

jdrescher's picture

Sorry, my answer wasn't very precise. You don't need to be a developer don't give up yet.

Just search for the app "Mapbox GL Native bindings for Qt QML" in Warehouse and install it. Then install or upgrade to the new version of Laufhelden.

Thanks :)

Finnish support disappear new update :/

jdrescher's picture

Thanks for the report, I will check this.

OSM scout server is not being called properly no map tiles are shown even with correctlt offline downloaded maps in the relevant area with the relevant language.

jdrescher's picture

There is a bug in record page. The map plugin does not change the style URL. So it would not load tiles from OSM Scout Server. This only works on workout details page.

Really sorry for all the bugs. I should do more tests before release...

rinigus's picture

To work with Mapbox GL based map viewers, OSM Scout Server has to provide vector maps. Which profile do you use in OSM Scout Server? Note that the Default profile does not include vector tiles. You would have to select "Recommended for vector and raster maps" if you wish to use the server with different types of clients. After changing the profile, please download the missing maps in the manager.

[This is assuming that you use OSM Scout Server default settings]

Also, to be sure that its an issue with the maps, please add OSM Scout Server logs. They should show whether the server was called by Laufhelden. On my device, Laufhelden calls the server correctly and shows the maps. So, its surely possible...

Much improved and sped up GPS aquisition and handling. App worked great but while running my battery died, on app restart and exercise resume it freezes and crashes, resume exercise has not bee successfup. Otherwise new metric and imperial unit option is fantastic!

jdrescher's picture

Thanks for your report. There is a bug in the current release (0.9.8-9). Until the bugfix is released it makes sense to use the previous version. Especially for big workouts. For further details see here: https://github.com/jdrescher2006/Laufhelden/issues/45

Hallo Jens, vielen Dank für diese großartige App! Wird es in Zukunft eine Zeit- und Distanzansage geben? Diese vermisse ich ein wenig. VG

jdrescher's picture

Hi, let's stick to english so that the others have a chance to understand, shall we?

Yeah this is one thing I would also really like to have.

But I need to record awfully lot's of audio files for that. I have also to figure out how to play that files in the right sequence accordingly.

The next release is about imperial units and MapBox support. Maybe after that.

silta's picture

Thanks a lot for edit mode!

jdrescher's picture

No problem you are welcome.

I am eager to get this application running, but I get into problems with installing qt5-qtconnectivity-qtbluetooth. I have had this problem while installing other applications. It must be something specific for me and my SFOS on my Jolla, since other users seem to have this application istall and usable. Is there some clue to get the Qt5 Bluetooth library installed? 

moli's picture

Sorry for the noise: I dug into pkcon, and saw that it could "search name" the 5.2.0 version of qt5-qtconnectivity-qtbluetooth. I tried to install, but pkcon reported that the package was not found "on the medium". I tried a "pkcon refresh" and another search, now showing the package in version 5.6.0, which could then install. It beats me that users have to "pkcon refresh" manually to get up to speed. Is there no automation for this in Sailfish or with the Warehouse application for OpenRepos?

jdrescher's picture

I think, I could do this in the installer of the app. But I don't know if that makes sense. Maybe it could be for some users/phones a dangerous operation.

olf's picture

A pkcon refresh takes a couple of minutes on a Jolla 1 phone with many repositories activated, thus please do not consider to trigger this automatically.

martonmiklos's picture

Great app, it is good to see promising open source successor for the Meerun.

silta's picture

At first thanks for display pace in minutes and seconds. Since I'm on XperiaX it's no longer possible to force installation of meerun, so Laufhelden is the choice for me. (rena also works good, but is very basic and seems not developed further) So thank you once more for your good work.

It would be nice if it could be possible to edit name, description and type of sport afterwards.

Thanks, silta.

jdrescher's picture

Hi silta, your request makes sense and I will add that to my todo list.

I found the autosave and renamed it. I got a close or wait message and laufhelden wasn't responding, when trying to save. After renaming i was able to start a new workout

jdrescher's picture

Ok, I will have a look at the autosave mechanism. There might be bugs.

gomerus's picture

I noticed, that loading a "bigger" walking autosave of 8km was taking really long. Is there a way to optimize this? Also it is counter intuitive to have to start a new workout, to load the autosave.

jdrescher's picture

Next release will resume workout directly on start of the app.

I was not aware that loading of autosave can take long. What phone do you use? I noticed that on Jolla 1 the loading of the GPX files takes very long.
