Tracking your sport activity with open source software

Filed under
Software

If you're a FOSS enthusiast who keeps fit by exercising or playing sports, it's time you used an open source application to track your activities. With these programs you can get a good overview of your exercises or create diagrams and statistics for specific time ranges and sport types.

SportsTracker

SportsTracker is a good place to start recording your sporting activities. It is not bound to a specific kind of sport -- you can create categories for any sport type, such as cycling, running, swimming, or tennis. Once you have a category, you can use it to log the time you spent doing that activity.

Pytrainer

Pytrainer is an alternative to SportsTracker that also allows you to log all your sport activities. It was originally programmed for cyclists, but it can be used for other types of individual sports, such as running or swimming.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
