HI everyone!

This is the official thread for the app Laufhelden which is a sport tracking application for Sailfish OS.

You can download and install the app from here.
The code is here.

I would like to use this thread for everything related to this app, e.g. feature requests, discussions about existing and new features, ...

This should also be the platform to coordinate the development of the app.

There is a file in which you can see what new features are coming to the next release and what is all planned for further releases. I will update the file from time to time.

Have fun using the app !

If you like to contribute you can record voice files for your language and send them to me or create a pull request on github. At the moment there are files for english and german.

You can find the voice files here.
The filenames should speak for themselves. Currently there are 6 voice files per language but I plan to add more in one of the next releases.
I recorded the files with my Jolla 1 phone and saved them as WAV. On Ubuntu I use Audacity to edit and cut the files.

Personally I really like female voices, maybe you own one or have "access" to one of those

Forked from Rena, which is excellent
I have used my own slightly modified fork of Rena from the very beginning...

I have to check this out!

I could ask a few girls I know to help...

But wouldn't it make sense to also feature synthetic voice support ?

Feature parity with bwalter's Meerun ? :-D

More seriously:
if you add "skiing" to the list of sport, it would be great if there's a simple way to display "distance while going downhill" (i.e.: without lifts, as opposed to "total distance" as displayed by MeeRun).
MeeRun can display detailed path (and thus you can see each individual run downhill, or lift taken up), but lacks a simple display like most android/iOS ski tracking apps do.

Thank's for creating this thread.

I already did some work on the RecordPage.qml.

Below are some screenshots of the current state, one in silica display mode and one in amoled display mode. At the moment it just resembles meerun. There is still quite some work to make it fully work, but I'm on a good track.

How do you like it?

The current code is here

Synthetic voice support: I find synthetic voices in most cases annoying. Also no idea how to achieve that.
Feature parity: maybe one day, working on that
More seriously: the next release will have the pauses working and also an auto pause feature. This should help to see each individual run.
I will also add skiing to the activities.
I might add distance while going down/up in a future release.

Re synthetic voices: TTS engines have developed quite a bit. If you have access to PC, try http://mary.dfki.de/ for OpenSource version. For SFOS, you could use mimic (based on flite; recommended voices {"male": "ap", "female": "slt"}; English only) or picoTTS (de, en, es, fr, it). If you can prerecord you'll probably get better results, but TTS is an option these days as well.

Yeah that's meerun style man!
I looked into your code and really like your programming style, it's much more cleaner than mine...

However I see a few problems. There are reasons why I did not replicate meeruns record screen.
- I like Laufhelden beeing independantly of meerun and hopefully doing things better where it is possible, so no need to copy meerun style.
- I don't like the bad using of display space in meerun. I think the values letters should be larger.

Don't get me wrong I really appreciate your work. But the meerun record page style is just not right for me.
My suggestion would be that we add your page layout as an option. Maybe you can keep your record page in a different qml file and the user can choose that one in the settings.
We can also make your style the default one as it may be the best for most of the users.

Keep up your good work!

This is because of my laziness
I don't like to write more than necessary and also don't like to debug and this helps.

This should be the last option, because it makes maintenance much harder. It was just a starting point for me, so let's see if we can add some options to make it all people happy.

What are your main itches? Bigger letters are not a big problem.
