@eaplmx@twtxt.net The big question is: How to deal with different sorts of exercises. Like situps and pushups require a counter, but a bike ride or hike do not. They require a distance, a route and what not. Should I go full overboard and make the exercise types completely user-configurable? Or should I just offer two different things built in with the option to expand later on in the code if necessary? Two fundamentally different solutions.

@eaplmx@twtxt.net You’re spot on. Making everything configurable opens a whole sea container of worms. You convinced me to make it as simple as possible. Haha, no, I do not have paying users, in fact it’s just me. Maybe up to three other mates in the future. It’s just a hobby project, so there won’t be anybody paying anything. And that’s perfectly fine for me as nobody can force me to do something. :-)

I’ll go with two predefined exercise types, that’s all that I need at the moment. Yeah, keeping extensability in mind is very important. Thank you very much for all your valuable input!

Our approaches differ in measurements, I don’t care about calories, although, that is most likely by far the best meaningful number. It’s just not something I’m interested in and I also don’t have any way to measure it. In that regard I’m like a child and want to play with counting exercises. ;-)
