I’ve been using my Fitbit every day without break since I first got it in June 2012 and while the Fitbit dashboard is good, offering everything you could ever want, I felt the need to roll my own – as always.

Fitbit offer a fantastic API which I aimed to make full use of. When I started my project I couldn’t find anything else on the net like it. My project is slightly further along than this one, I am contacting the developer to offer my code and see if we can both work up a finished product.

NxFitness Core is stable and working on this site, but it is heavily tailored to my setup and the code has only recently been made public. The code is poorly commented and depends on my, but I am working on it. If you are interested in this code please email me

Ways to contribute

A common misconception about contributing to an open source is that you need to contribute code. In fact, it’s the other parts of this project that are most neglected or overlooked. You’ll do the project a huge favour by offering to pitch in with these types of contributions!

Code contributions that make the project better are always welcome. Please read the Git commit guidelines and Contributor covenant code of conduct and submit a pull request for addition to the main source.

Possibly the simplest way to contribute is simply to download and install the software yourself – use it as stable code or try and break it – and report any bugs you find, ether manually or enable the automatic error reports.

During setup just uncomment the sentry io dsn configuration line and core will report code bugs and unexpected exceptions to sentry it’s self. Despite this being incredibly useful I’ve disabled it by default. See the sentry explanation page for information about what is transmitted.

If you have something that will help please let me know.
