A uniform interface to GPX services like mapmytracks or gpsies

Project description

Gpxity is a Python - library making it easy to move GPS-based tracks between different backends.
In this context, a backend is a place where tracks can be stored.

And there is a command line utility **gpxdo** helping you organize your tracks.
It lets you list, copy, merge, remove, edit, fix, compare backends and tracks.

Find the documentation here:

The library currently implements those backends:

* :class:``: Directory for .gpx files on an accessible file system
* :class:`~gpxity.backends.server_directory.ServerDirectory`: Directory suited for server implementations
* :class:`~gpxity.backends.gpsies.GPSIES`: For tracks on
* :class:`~gpxity.backends.mmt.MMT`: For tracks on
* :class:`~gpxity.backends.trackmmt.TrackMMT`: For tracks on a very simple server emulating a
few MMT commands (just what oruxmaps uses for uploading)
* :class:`~gpxity.backends.mailer.Mailer`: Mails tracks

Some backends might not support everything Gxpity wants and you will get the
exception NotImplementedError().

Sometimes you might just change a harmless thing like the description but
the backend does not allow changing this separately, so we have to re-upload
the whole track. If it is is big and the remote server slow, this might
take some time. Right now this library has no asynchronous interface,
so it can really take some time until your program continues.

Sometimes Gpxity uses undocumented ways to access a backend - this is done
when there is no documented way or when the official API implementation is
buggy or too slow for real-life use.

Backends might change their behaviour, I intend to update Gpxity quickly
in that case. The unittests of gpxity should notice all relevant changes.


1.3.1 release 2018-08-19

* Adapt to latest gpxpy 1.3.3
* Fix bugs

1.3.0 release 2018-08-18

This release renames class Activity to Track, and it renames Track.what
to Track.category. The latter means that .gpx files should be adjusted:
where the keywords now contain "What:", change that to "Category:".

* new: Track.last_point() avoids having to iterate over the full list
* new: gpxdo diff
* gpxdo: bash completion if argcomplete is installed (pip install argcomplete).
Put this into your .bashrc: eval "$(register-python-argcomplete gpxdo)"
or see
* new in Track: speed(), moving_speed(), warnings()
* gpxdo --long shows warnings about strange tracks
* gpxdo --total
* gpxdo set --help shows all legal categories
* gpxdo ls: if no file/directory given, use "."
* gpxdo: unify how backends/tracks are displayed. Remove leading "./" from names.
* gpxdo --debug shows backtrace for errors
* Backend.merge() now also accepts a single Track
* Backend.diff() now accepts an Track, a Backend or a list of any of them on for both sides
* GPSIES: workaround for sporadic bug in editTrack
* Track.clone() does not pass id_in_backend anymore
* Backend.scan() tries to keep known tracks
* Backend.diff() now compares all attributes
* new: Track.identifier() and Backend.identifier() and use them for better output in gpxdo
* new: gpxdo set for setting/clearing any attributes
* Track.add_keyword(): given a duplicate, silently ignore it
* gpxdo kw now accepts a list of comma separated keywords
* gpxdo: filter by keywords: --only-kw
* gpxdo --last-date now includes that date
* gpxdo --first-date and --last-date now also accept YYYY-MM and YYYY
* gpxdo --date is new: specific date YYYY, YYYY-MM or YYYY-MM-DD
* gpxdo --set --id-from-title is new
* gpxdo --set --id-from-time is new
* gpxdo --similar
* new: Track.similarity(other)
* gpxity now uses the python logging module for all output
* gpxdo: replace --debug and --verbose by --loglevel
* new backend Mailer
* new: class Lifetrack
* new: bin/gpxity_server. This is unfinished work, it is intended as a server for

1.2.6 release 2018-06-05
* utility for testing installation in a docker container
* version number is not in the source anymore, creates

1.2.2 release 2018-04-25
* gpxdo ls --long is no longer ignored
* explicitly enforce utf-8 when reading or writing .gpx files
* improve
* require gpxpy 1.2.0

1.2.1 release 2018-04-17
* Backend has a new arg "timeout"
* README has a link to readthedocs
* Auth: added an example
* Backend.sync_from is gone, there are now Track.merge() and Backend.merge()
* diverse fixes for gpxdo
* Track.what is now always in internal format
* Simplify specific backend code by moving more code into the general Backend class
* Track.dirty is gone, there now is Track.rewrite()
* Backend: renamed save() to add()
* Track.identifier is new, to be used by gpxdo
* Track.length is the track length
* gpxdo ls has many more options, including --sort
* gpxdo rm has a new option --dry-run

1.2.0 release 2018-04-09
* New backend GPSIES for
* New: Command line utility "gpxdo" exposing commands for listing, copying,
merging, removing, editing, fixing, comparing
* New class BackendDiff
* Backend: rename copy_all_from to sync_from and add parameters
* hide class Authenticate from public API
* Define assumption about points having to be ordered by time
* Do not use slow GPX.get_time_bounds()
* Track.last_time now is a property
* MMT: Map Track.keywords to MMT tags
* Track.keywords now returns them sorted
* MMT: login only once per backend instance
* Make list(Track) sortable (by title)
* New: Track.adjust_time()
* Track: Improve __str__ and __repr__
* Backend can now be used as an iterable
* New class BackendDiff
* MMT now supports life tracking
* New generator Track.segments()
* Simplify usage of auth.conf
* fix illegal XML generated by gpxy for GPX 1.1
* New: Backend.match implements client-side filtering
* New: BackendException
* New: Map values for "what" between different backends
* New: Backend.legal_whats shows the values for "what" supported by a backend

1.1.2 release 2017-03-4
* a first example
* simplify authentication
* simplify Backend API
* len(backend) is the number of tracks
* Allow backend[x] and x in backend
* hide Backend.tracks, directly add needed methods to Backend
* MMT: Download track sometimes did not download the entire track
* bin/test and bin/coverage now accept test method names (without `test_` prefix)
* Directory: removes dead links without raising an exception
* Track.description never returns None
* Track: Parsing illegal GPX XML now prints a more helpful error message
* Track.clone() first does load_full
* Track(gpx=gpx) now handles keywords correctly
* now accepts ident=str
* Directory tries not to use illegal file names for symlinks
