This is a personal dashboard I built to aggregate and visualize all the different tracking services that track my life. The dashboard is updated in real time and can be found at https://qself-dashboard.herokuapp.com/
Right now it visualizes:
- Time spent online, along with productivtity and unproductivity (Rescuetime)
- Steps and location (Moves)
- Chess (lichess.com)
- Weight (Withings smart scale)
- Pomodoro time (Toggl.com)
- Todo's (Todoist)
- Time spent programming (Wakatime)
- Top artists and songs for the month (Spotify)

Installation and Setup
First make sure you have python3 installed and are using it throughout, since some of the syntax doesn't port over to python2.
git clone https://github.com/Andreilys/personal_dashboard
Install Postgres Now, enter your API credentials into personal_info_template.py and rename it to personal_info.py. Run these commands next:
psql CREATE DATABASE qself_dashboard; \q Run python manage.py db init python manage.py db migrate python manage.py db upgrade #you should now be able to run the application python3 app.py
You'll now need to give permission to Spotify for the app to access your data (Which will save a .emailCache file) followed by withings (make sure you are just copy+pasting oauth_verifier and not including oauth_token) and Moves which should then create permanent pickle files in your personal_dashboard folder.
You're done setting it up locally!
Setting up on Heroku
With the application working locally, you might be interested in hosting it on the cloud, I prefer heroku so i'll walk you through instructions on how to set up there. First things first, make sure you register an account on heroku and download their Heroku Toolbelt, afterwards login with heroku login.
Once logged in run these commands
heroku create (your app name) git remote add pro email@example.com:YOUR\_APP\_NAME.git git add personal\_dashboard/personal\_info.py -f git add migrations -f git add nokia\_data.pkl -f git add moves\_data.pkl -f git commit -m "adding personal info and migrations folder" (may need to login to github for this) git push pro master heroku config:set APP\_SETTINGS=config.ProductionConfig heroku addons:create heroku-postgresql:hobby-dev --app (YOUR\_APP\_NAME) heroku run python manage.py db upgrade --app (YOUR\_APP\_NAME)
Thats it! The other thing you should consider doing is setting the timezone of your heroku app so that everything is in sync, you can do this with the following command (Substituting the timezone with your own)
heroku config:add TZ="America/Los\_Angeles"
