Clone or download


Build Status

ActivityWatch server, for secure storage and retrieval of all your Quantified Self data.


Install program and dependencies:

sudo python3 install 

The aw-server binary should now be available to you in your PATH (if it is set correctly).


Run aw-server:



If you want to run aw-server in development, you probably want to run a development instance beside your personal (stable) instance. You can do this by giving aw-server the --testing flag. This will start the server on another port and use a seperate datastore.

aw-server --testing

API Examples

You can also get a very decent API browser by browsing to localhost:5600 after starting the server.

There are also some API examples in the documentation.
