Note: This is alpha software and not intended for serious usage, but only for tester and translators.

  • You need to enable the repository of rinigus to install the Mapbox GL Native QML component for map display
  • all strings should now be translatable, so please start translating.
  • Please check the bluetooth integration and online services. They might got broken.
  • Upload to Sports Tracker seems to be broken. I do not have an account or an iOS os Android device, therfore I cannot fix it. Pull Requests welcome.
  • It still uses the Laufhelden folder in the Home directory.
  • Not everyting from the new Record Page is working, yet
  • I don't have much time for Kuri, so don't expect to get it out of alpha soonish. I put it here just to have some motivation to work on it from time to time.


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

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!

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.

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...

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?

elBoberido's picture

Oh, I just updated the description.

Kudos to Jens Drescher and all the other conributors to Laufhelden. I did not do much, yet.
I do not use Sports Tracker, therefore I need support from other contributors. Patches are welcome.

This app is awesome. It works flawlessly, when Sports Tracker was regularly crashing. The Sports Tracker upload option does not work, but I can live without that.
Thank you !

@cartron Laufhelden is not maintained anymore and Jens moved to Android, so there will probably be no further releases

elBoberido's picture

@Karry this all started with the idea to contribute it to Laufhelden, over two years ago. But I never finished it and now Laufhelden is not maintained anymore, so I decided to create the fork.

elBoberido's picture

@oxygenh theoretically it should already support HRM. I don't own a HRM device (yet?), so I cannot check if it work's and therefore I need the support of the community

cartron's picture

HRM works in Laufhelden indeed, I tested it like one year ago.

Why forking Laufhelden and not just asking Jens if you could contribute??

Karry's picture

Did you consider to contribute to Laufhelden insted of creating fork? In any case, keep working ;-)

oxygenh's picture

Nice begin! How about hrm support?

elBoberido's picture

Hahaha, I guess that's the problem with such short names. In many languages there might already be a meaning for it.

osetr's picture

It's even more funny that in Russian it could mean "do smoke"))
