we have complained in the past about Deepblu and their Cosmiq+ dive computers being walled gardens that like to collect their users dives but don’t have any way to export the data.

Turns out, that walled garden doesn’t have a fence in the back.

I just learned that there is by sander.vandemoortel at (in CC)

a python script that downloads the data from there and exports it in UDDF. Reading the source, it turns out, deebblu has an api that spits out dive data without authentification, for example see my sample dive on

All you need to know is the hex string user id (which is public, it can be found in the url when looking at somebody else’s profile). So, if we were willing to parse json, it shouldn’t be too hard to import data from their webpage… Any volunteers?
