Python library to parse ANT/Garmin .FIT files
Welcome to the rewrite for the next generation (ng) of python-fitparse.
Here’s a preview of what’s to come. Any and all feedback is welcome.
WARNING: This is a WIP considered HIGHLY unstable. You want to use the master branch for now.
- New, hopefully cleaner public API with a clear division between accessible and internal parts. (Still unstable and partially complete.)
- Proper documentation! [Available here](http://dtcooper.github.com/python-fitparse/).
- Unit tests and example programs.
- (WIP) Command line tools (eg a .FIT to .CSV converter).
- Component fields and compressed timestamp headers now supported and not just an afterthought. Closes issues #6 and #7.
- FIT file parsing is generic enough to support all types. Going to have specific FitFile subclasses for more popular file types like activities.
- (WIP) Converting field types to normalized values (for example, bool, date_time, etc) done in a consistent way, that’s easy to customize by subclassing the converter class. I’m going to use something like the Django form-style convert_<field name> idiom on this class.
- The FIT profile is its own complete python module, rather than using profile.def.
- Bonus! The profile generation script is _less_ ugly (but still an atrocity) and supports every [ANT FIT SDK](http://www.thisisant.com/resources/fit) from version 1.00 up to 5.10.
- A working setup.py module. Closes issue #2, finally! I’ll upload the package to [PyPI](http://pypi.python.org/) when it’s done.
- Support for parsing one record at a time. This can be done using <FitFile>.parse_one() for now, but I’m not sure of the exact implementation yet.
This software is offered under a slightly modified ISC-style license.
