Finished all the relevant code for heart rate in #exist, including Withings and Runkeeper now too, but can’t test every service without a means to put fake data in there so I’m putting that off for a little bit. I’ll come back to it when I can make myself care more.

Moving on now to drafting a set of new attributes that we’ll support, things that people can put into Exist even if we don’t have a service that provides them (yet). Things like commits, emails sent and received, time spent meditating. Should hopefully be handy for people wanting to use the API to track stuff themselves.

On a slightly related note, yesterday I discovered that #mysql has just added a #json field type which means I might be able to put off our switch to postgres potentially forever. Woo! That makes my life a lot easier.

I’d love an update on this post transition. It’s one of the only reasons I still choose Postgres.

The json support, you mean? If I did it over I’d probably pick postgres, even though I’m less familiar with it. But I think mysql’s basic support will do. I don’t think at this stage we’ll be doing complex queries on the content, just getting all values for a key, etc. But yeah, I’ll log about how it goes :)

Whoa, that’s great news about MySQL. I always felt kinda dirty storing JSON strings in MySQL text fields.
