You may have heard about FitBit badges support in Ubuntu Accomplishments system. Matt Fisher and Chris Wayne have written a new collection of accomplishments which pulls in your FitBit badges to other trophies. You can learn more about what awesome work they did by reading their articles [Matt] [Chris].
To those of you thinking “Hey, that app is Ubuntu accomplishments. How does FitBit relate to Ubuntu?”: that’s what a separate collection means. All trophies are grouped in sets – each set may relate to a different community, may be developed by completely different people – and such sets are called collections. You can think about them as of plugins or add-ons. Collections are installed separatelly, and are optional. That means that you are free to install FitBit accomplishments alongside Ubuntu trophies, and that you can also use just FitBit badges and remove default collections that award you for being active in Ubuntu community.
Now why do I consider FitBit trophies a milestone for the project?
