Setup

Configuring your API

Once you’ve installed the Fitbit plugin, you’ll need to first create a developer account to secure access to an OAuth key.
After registering a developer account, you’ll then need to register a new app within the Fitbit developer portal.
Once the details of your app have been added, you’ll be provided with a client ID and secret key for your OAuth 2.0 integration.
Now, you’ll need to copy both the client ID and client secret keys into their relevant fields within your plugin settings.
Note: It’s also possible to enable a generic redirect URL within the Bubble plugin settings itself.

Logging a user in through Fitbit

After configuring your OAuth credentials, you can now use the ‘signup/login with social network’ step within a workflow. From the event dropdown menu, you’ll see an option to select the Fitbit OAuth provider. This event can be added to an element like a login button.
After a user clicks this button, they’ll be redirected to a Fitbit portal where they can verify their account, then be redirected back to the destination URL of your application.
Now, you can choose to display information from a user's Fitbit account by using the ‘current user’s Fitbit’ operator.

Accepting a friend invitation

To display a list of a user’s Fitbit friend invitations, start by adding a repeating group element to the page. The type of content for this repeating group will need to be configured as ‘Fitbit Friend Invitation’.
Now, you’ll also need to update the data source to display the ‘current user’s Fitbit friends invitations’.
Now, within the repeating group cell, you can display information from a user’s Fitbit profile who has sent a friend invitation.
From here, when the accept button is clicked, you can create a workflow and choose from the ‘accept Fitbit friend invitation’ event.
When configuring this workflow event, you’ll need to set the FromUserID to be the ‘current cell’s Fitbit friend’s invitation’s User ID’.

Inviting a Fitbit friend

In order to allow the current user to send a Fitbit friend invitation, select the ‘invite Fitbit friend’ workflow event.
Within this workflow event, you’ll need to configure an email value associated with a user’s Fitbit account. This can be attained through an input form.

Adding a Fitbit subscription

When adding a new Fitbit subscription, select the ‘add a Fitbit subscription’ event within your workflow editor.
When adding a new subscriber, you’ll need to associate a SubscriptionID to the current user. This unique ID will be shared with Fitbit. As Fitbit states within their API docs, this ID has a character limit of 50 characters.
Within a Bubble input, it’s possible to use the formula operator to generate a random character string.
Now, when configuring your subscription workflow event, it’s possible to use the value of this input field as the SubscriptionID.
We’d also recommend storing this SubscriptionID as a field under your user data type. This will allow you to reference this unique ID if the user chooses to delete their subscription at a later date.

Deleting a Fitbit subscription

When deleting a user’s Fitbit subscription, select from the ‘delete a Fitbit subscription’ workflow event.
When configuring this workflow step, you’ll need to provide the subscription type that the user will be canceling.
Note: If the CollectionPath is not provided, subscriptions will be deleted from all collections.
Next, you’ll need to verify what subscription ID you’ll be deleting. If you’ve stored the current user’s subscription ID within your database, you can reference this here.
