Kuri is a sport tracking application for Sailfish OS. Kuri means "run" in Esperanto. Funnily it also means "discipline" in Finnish.


  • On SFOS 4.5 some user have problems to start or install Kuri. This is related to the deprecation and removal of QtBluetooth. For user which are affected by this issue qtconnectivity-bluetooth from OpenRepos can be installed. A proper fix is not yet available
  • You need to enable the chum repo to resolve the Mapbox GL Native QML dependency for map display
    • download the chum rpm for your architecture
    • install the rpm, e.g. via the file browser
    • install Kuri (if installation still does not work, perform a `devel-su pkcon refresh`)
  • All strings should now be translatable, so please start translating
  • Not everyting from the new Record Page is working, yet
  • With v0.5 the location of the config file and recorded activities changed as preparation for a future Sailjail activation
    • config is now stored in '.config/org.kuri/kuri/kuri.toml'
    • activities are now stored in '.local/share/org.kuri/kuri'
    • activities are migrated on first start, config is not migrated

Kuri takes inspirations from MeeRun, but it will take some time until all of MeeRuns features are implemented.

This application is a fork of Laufhelden by jdrescher. The reason for the fork is that it isn't maintained anymore.

Thanks to translators!

Thank you for the update. Kuri is working now.

Have a nice day.

Hi @elBoberido ,

Do you know if  Garmin HRM-Pro (https://www.garmin.com/en-US/p/682155) which has bluetooth can work with Kuri?


elBoberido's picture

Sorry, I can't tell you if that device works. Maybe you can ask in https://forum.sailfish.org whether someone uses that device

Alex's picture

Hey @elBoberido,
upgrading SailfishOS to 4.3.0.xx will remove Kuri because it has a dependency to a mapboxgl-qml version that requires OpenSSL 1.0. Could you please provide an updated version of Kuri (that uses the latest version of mapboxgl-qml)? :)

elBoberido's picture

That's weird. I also updated to the 4.3 EA release but did not have the problem you described. Do you have the latest mapboxgl-qml installed? It is not directly provided by Kuri but must be installed and updated manually from rinigus repo.

Alex's picture

Well I was able to install Kuri again after updating mapboxgl-qml, thanks. :)

lxmx's picture

Getting a "Could not load the page" message when trying to start a workout on an Xperia X.

elBoberido's picture

I guess this is due to a missing mapboxgl-qml dependency. Can you try to install it manually?

Juanro49's picture

It's work fine, but I can't login to strava

elBoberido's picture

What error do you get?

pasik2's picture

Can you add 64 bit support for Sony Xperia 10 II? Thanks!

elBoberido's picture

Done. Please report if there are issues.

inte's picture

It is now always crashing when trying to start. I used it some time ago and connected to strava i think. Thats all... I could try after deleting my data if that helps?

elBoberido's picture

Sorry for not replying, was hit by real life. If you still have the data, please don't delete it but just move them to a different location. It might help debugging if it's related to the data.

On my X, SFOS3, it crashed on startup after some "uptime". In this situation I have rebooted the phone. Didn't investigate, has a taste of "out of memory"...

elBoberido's picture

I also noticed that it's getting really slow after a few hours recording. I guess I have to refactor the recording a little bit.

SKD's picture

I unfortunately have the same problem since I started using my XA2 (sometime last summer). Whenever I try to start the app the icon appears for some time and then it's just gone.

elBoberido's picture

I also had this from time to time. It's running in the background and you can kill it with e.g. Lighthouse.

Recently I found how to reproduce it, so I hope to fix it soon.

inte's picture

I get a segfault error on sfos4 while Laufhelden still works.
Don't know if its your modifications or the strava account I added...

Do you have more information, like what you did before the crash? Is it reproducible?

Hello! Thanks for picking up the relay baton with this sports tracker.

I have troubles adding my BLE (random address type) HRM device to Kuri:

  • if I use the Sailfish OS Bluetooth settings and hit search device the device does show up
  • if I use the Kuri settings, preselect the correct type (BLE random address) and hit scan, the devices does not show up.
  • If I copy-paste the device config line (hrmdevice="DF:81:53:0E:F4:81,HRM508NE-0079890")  from Laufhelden's to Kuri's config file, Kuri can connect to it and receive heartrate.
elBoberido's picture

Can you still reproduce this with v0.4.0?

elBoberido's picture

I'm currently not able to fix the Bluetooth issues by myself, since I don't have an appropriate device. I will happily accecpt any patch for the issue, though. Sorry that I cannot do more at the moment.

Looks like connection to pebble works

Hello, greetings from Brazil. I loved the app, i have laufhelden here , but the differences are a great thing. The clock in top, the progressbar for Gps is awesome. I want to provide translation . I can help for translate to Portuguese and Norwegian.

elBoberido's picture


translations are always welcome. Currently you need to create a PR on gitlab. You should be able to login with a github account if you have one.

Just copy the `translations/harbour-kuri.ts` file and append the locale for Portuguese, e.g. `translations/harbour-kuri-pt.ts` or `translations/harbour-kuri-pt_BR.ts` if there are big differences between these Portuguese flavours. For each tranlated string, you have to remove the `type="unfinished"` atribute. I hope it's not too cumbersome, I did not have time to move the translations to a maybe more convenient online service.

If it's too much to fully translate it immediatelly, I'm also happy to merge partially translated files.

I've used MeeRun for several years and I'm still using it even though it's not developed anymore.

I'd really would like to migrate all my workouts to any new app I might use. So is there anyone here who might be interested in converting MeeRun workouts to gpx or some other format? Or pointing me to a right direction on how to do it? I have programming experience and tried to figure out MeeRuns file format but did not have skills to figure it out.

There is an export to gpx feature in MeeRun so I could just export workouts one by one. But the programmer in me really want's to automate it. Probably won' me any time though...

elBoberido's picture

Sorry for not responding quickly.

I also have some MeeRun trainings which I want to import to Kuri. It's on my todo list, but I currently don't have much time. Hopefully I can do it in September/October. My current plan is to use the exported GPX files, but I will also check if I can reverse engineer the file format. Any help is appreciated.

If you want to reverse engineer it by yourself, you could try the following:

- record a short track with MeeRun, maybe 1 or 2 seconds

- repeat that for a few times

- export those files to GPX

- open the MeeRun files in a hex editor and compare them to the GPX file

- the MeeRun files will have a few similarities at the top, e.g. the date and training type

- try to change the MeeRun files in a hex editor and open it in MeeRun

- strings may either have the length as 4/8 bytes as length in front of the actual string, a `\0` or both

- list, like the track points, will most probably have their length prepended as 4/8 bytes

- keep in mind that the files might be encoded in little endian, so a length of 333 will be `0x4D 0x01 0x00 0x00` instead of `0x00 0x00 0x01 0x4D`

If you need help, just ping me. I try to find some time to support you if you want to implement this feature.

So where is code?

Oh, I just updated the description.
