An idea for integration with habit-tracking apps

There’s an app I’ve been using for some time now(not affiliated in any way) - called Loop Habit tracker.

I’d gladly use something like that with an android widget to mark the event I’m tracking for open research projects. I am currently tracking my workout routines, art and meal habits - it works very well.

Now that I think of it, this is a field of opportunity for your project - integrations with apps like these.

What do you think of it?

That’s really interesting. Does it already offer a way to export the data as a CSV or in a different format? In many cases that’s the easiest first step. :slight_smile:

Also: has anyone tried ? A friend/acquaintance of mine used to work on it, but I never really gave it a shot myself so far!

Haha that’s hilarious because I used to develop an app until I saw Habitica having literally 1:1 all the features I ever dreamt to add to my app :wink: Learnt a lot in the process though :wink:

The app does have SQLite database dump feature. I could make an integration for that… I’ve reached out to app developer, let’s see what they have to say.

The easiest way to upload the SQLite database to open humans would be through which @madprime made! You can define the data type once and that’s all that’s needed!

And fun to hear that you found Habitica like that! Have you used it for some tracking? :slight_smile:

I “defined” the datatype here

How do I actually upload? Do I need to define table schema?

Thanks! If you mark the DataType as uploadable (I’ve gone ahead and edited it thusly), it shows up here:

Still working on features for DataTypes – but as those grow, it enables folks to tag & share stuff according to DataType (e.g. tagging notebooks). There isn’t any automated processing of schema, but it might be helpful to describe schema in the “details” field of the DataType. :slight_smile:


Yep, agree with @madprime! Also, you could share a notebook showing how to read the database file on and link it in the description if you want!
