How to use withings-go


Go library zono-dev/withings-go is for Withings API.

Currently it support resource the below.

Getting started

1. Create your account and register your app

Before you can use withings-go, you need to create your Withings account and register your app; if you own a Withings product, you should already have a Withings account.

Access Register your app to register your app.

Callback URL must satisfy the following conditions described in Withings API FAQ.

  • Localhost and IP as callback url or redirect uri are not allowed.
  • Starts with https.
  • Be a valid URL.
  • Not be greater than 255 characters.

So even if you use the withings API for personal use only, you will need your server and domain which start with https.


Client ID, Consumer Secret can be use after you complete filling in your information.


2. Install withings-go

Just run go get github.com/zono-dev/withings-go/withings.

3. Create your settings file

Create .test_settings.yaml in your working directory.

RedirectURL: "Your Redirect URL"

The following text is taken from Withings API FAQ.

The redirect_uri is set as parameter and its value is specified as Callback Url in your partner application (or contained if it is a list). It must at least have same domain.

The endpoint https://wbsapi.withings.com is not working

Correct URL is https://wbsapi.withings.net

The endpoint https://account.withings.com/oauth2_user/authorize is not working

Correct URL is https://account.withings.com/oauth2_user/authorize2

4. Create your Go app

Copy main.go in zono-dev/withings-go to your working directory.

Run go build -o getMeasurements and getMeasurements will be generated.

5. Run your app

getMeasurements will read your .test_settings.yaml automatically.

When first time you run getMeasurements, you’ll get the message in your console as follows.

URL to authorize:http://account.withings.com/oauth2_user/authorize2?access_type=offline&client_id=yourclientid&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fexample.com&response_type=code&scope=user.activity%2Cuser.metrics%2Cuser.info&state=state
Open url your browser and Enter your grant code here.
 Grant Code:

Access the URL to authorize URL in your browser and login withings site that will be permit to access your measurements.

If you allow that your app access to your measurements, your browser will be redirect your Redirect URL with Grant Code in GET parameters.

For example, Grant code is 12345678910abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz in https://example.com/?code=12345678910abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz&state=state.

Caution: Your grant code is available for 30 seconds, so you need to type it in your console immidiately.

Then your measurments will be displayed in your console.

Note: The time location used in sample code is JST, so you need to adjust it to your location. See the next section for customization.

6. Customize your app

Some customization points are in the sample code.

  • Timezone: jst in mainSetup()
  • Duration to get data: t and adayago or lastupdate in mainSetup()
  • Kind of data: Args for GetMeas(), GetActivity(), GetSleep(), GetSleepSummary()
