Simple parser for Garmin TCX files

Project description

Build Status

master:Build Status
Requirement Updates

python-tcxparser is a minimal parser for Garmin’s TCX file format. It is not in any way exhaustive. It extracts just enough data to allow me to post data from my Garmin ForeRunner 410 watch to DailyMile’s API.

Data extracted:
  • latitude & longitude of start point of workout
  • type of workout (running, walking, etc)
  • time of completion of workout (in ISO UTC)
  • distance of workout (in meters)
  • duration of workout (in seconds)
  • calories burned during workout (as estimated by device)
  • average, max and min heart rate during workout
  • average pace during workout
  • average altitude during workout
  • ascent and descent of workout
  • max and min altitude
  • time stamp of each data point (in ISO UTC)
  • average and max cadence (cycling activities)

Installation

Install it from PyPI:

pip install python-tcxparser

Usage

Basic usage example:

>>> import tcxparser
>>> tcx = tcxparser.TCXParser('/home/vinod/Downloads/20121226-212953.tcx')
>>> # Duration of workout in seconds
... tcx.duration
1992.78
>>> # latitude/longitude at start of workout
... tcx.latitude
35.951880198
>>> tcx.longitude
-79.0931872185
>>> tcx.activity_type
'running'
>>> # ISO UTC timestamp when workout completed
... tcx.completed_at
'2012-12-26T22:03:05Z'
>>> # distance of workout in meters
... tcx.distance
4686.31103516
>>> tcx.distance_units
'meters'
>>> # calories burned (as reported by device)
... tcx.calories
379

Maintainer Information

We use Github Actions to lint (using pre-commit, black, isort, and flake8), test (using tox and tox-gh-actions), and calculate coverage (using coverage).

We have a local script to do these actions locally, named maintain.sh:

$ ./maintain.sh

A Github Action workflow also builds and pushes a new package to PyPI whenever a new Release is created in Github. This uses a project-specific PyPI token, as described in the PyPI documentation here. That token has been saved in the PYPI_PASSWORD settings for this repo, but has not been saved anywhere else so if it is needed for any reason, the current one should be deleted and a new one generated.

As always, be sure to bump the version in setup.py before creating a Release, so that the proper version gets pushed to PyPI.
