A Python wrapper for the Jawbone UP API.

Project Description

Kiefer (German): jawbone.

A simple Python wrapper for Jawbone’s UP API. kiefer fully supports Python 2.7 and Python 3.4.


You can easily install kiefer using pip:

pip install kiefer


kiefer takes care of the tedious OAuth2 process.

Before you can start, you need to create a config file with your client_id, client_secret, redirect_uri and the scope of your app. You can use the included config_example.json as a template.

You can create your Jawbone account and app here: Link

After creating the config file all interaction that is needed is copy-pasting a URL:

from kiefer.auth import KieferAuth

auth = KieferAuth('config.json')
access_token = auth.get_access_token()


After retrieving your access token, initialize the client:

from kiefer.client import KieferClient

client = KieferClient(your_access_token)

A KieferClient instance offers methods to retrieve following metrics from the Jawbone UP API:

  • band events
  • body event(s)
  • heart rate
  • custom events
  • goals
  • meal(s)
  • mood(s)
  • move(s)
  • settings
  • sleep(s)
  • time zone
  • user information
  • workout(s)

A (s) indicates that you can retrieve a list of events as well as a single event.
