[Announce] Rockpool - Pebble daemon for Sailfish
 
Unofficial Pebble smartwatch support for Sailfish.

Package: https://openrepos.net/content/abranson/rockpool

Code: https://github.com/abranson/rockpool

RockWork (upstream): https://launchpad.net/rockwork

Rockpool is a port of the Ubuntu Touch application RockWork, which is a port of the Sailfish application Pebbled, which can trace its history back through several other pebble apps. It exists because a large amount of work was done in RockWork to support different OSes and the v3 version of the Pebble firmware, which was released with the Pebble Time and is now available for earlier models. Development on Rockpool and RockWork is currently done in parallel, with changes merged each way, and they should eventually merge.

Rockpool does a few things that Pebbled and even RockWork do not; most notably pushing pins from your calendar and from watch apps to Pebble's timeline, dismissing or replying to notifications on the phone from the watch, and supporting the full Music protocol including the track progress bar.

If you are already using pebbled, then you only need to stop the daemon to try out Rockpool. You can do this by unchecking the 'Active' toggle on Pebbled. Rockpool is flagged as conflicting with pebbled's service, so starting one should stop the other.

Please feel welcome to contribute on GitHub, either by filing issues or chipping in. Please contribute to translating Rockpool to other language here: https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/.../translations/

Latest version: 1.3-1

I've tried Football Pal app, and it didn't work:
https://apps.getpebble.com/en_US/app..._settings=true
The scores wont be updated
I'll try some more watch apps

Ah there are two things that don't work:
  1. Timeline integration through pebble.com. This is awaiting implementation in RockWork's libpebble. It looks like they'll have to support the timeline pin's JSON format for that too.
  2. WebSockets - This is implemented in RockWork, but using the Qt WebSockets implementation that was introduced in Qt5.3. Sailfish is on Qt5.2 :( I've had to preprocess all of that out, else it won't build.

I'd like to get onto the first one as soon as we're integrated into RockWork, although if it gets done in the meantime I can pull it over. The second one, no idea!

There's an external WebSockets implementation that might help:

I've been using this since yesterday, and it is working really well for me. Thank you again for the time you've spent working on this, I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes.

I particularly like that you can open/dismiss messages on the phone from the watch, very convenient for getting rid of the notification LED.

Yeah the actions are cool and were really simple to do. I don't think the other plain 'dismiss' option works yet until I do as RobertMe suggested and integrate Javispedro's notification monitor that can pick up the notification ids after they've been sent. Then it'll be able to remove notifs from the watch when you dismiss them on the phone too. I think there's also potential to add extra actions - the Jolla apps give one to open the message and another to just open the app. There's a lot of potential in here.

Really I'm just stalling the QML as long as possible. If anyone fancies a shot at it... :D

My Pebble Steel is still on firmware v2.9. Is firmware update supported? Or is the Android way currently the only way?

QML is great tho, it's the nicest way of doing GUI-stuff I know. Not that I know much. But still, it was the first time I actually enjoyed making a GUI. I'm not much help here tho, as I'm procrastinating my own little QML project for over a year now :(

I don't know whether it's possible to use the FW upgrade on rockpool yet, but my PTS is on 3.6.1, which I upgraded using Pebbled, so you don't need an Android device to upgrade.

Pebbled doesn't check for 3.8 upgrade firmware, which is the one that upgrades Pebble classics to v3. It has to flash twice too because there's an intermediate firmware to flash on the way.

The Rockpool daemon can flash, you'll see the new firmware available message in the logs. It can probably be triggered through DBus, but I wouldn't recommend it until it's tested.

I've just pushed a new version to Openrepos. This one can track notifications and close them from the watch, thanks once again to javispedro's libwatchfish. And it has a new icon on the non-functional app launcher thanks to Greg!!
