WatchTower helps you track the time you spend on each project and on each file in the projects.

Introduction

Did you ever wonder how much each of your projects really costs? Watch Tower comes to the rescue.

WatchTower runs in the background and monitors your editors (see Supported Editors) and records the time you spend on each file and thus on the project in total. Using a simple but powerful web interface, you can view details and statistics about each project and each file.

Features

  • Track editors (see Supported Editors) and record all files tracked under git or placed under code_path defined in the config file.
  • Display all projects on the home page that has been worked on the current month, the date range can be changed using the date picker on the home page
  • For each project, a detailed overview of each file with the elapsed time within the selected date range

Supported Editors

  • TextMate
  • Xcode

Supported Operating Systems

  • Mac OS X

Installation

The installation has been made as simple as possible, here's the steps required:

$ gem install watch_tower --pre
$ watchtower install
$ watchtower load_bootloader

This creates a configuration file which you should review before invoking WatchTower, located at ~/.watch_tower/config.yml the configuration file is self explanatory.

Update

It is important to run

$ watchtower install_bootloader
$ watchtower reload_bootloader

because the path to watchtower binary file is hardcoded in the boot loader.

Usage

The installation process should create a launcher on login which starts WatchTower you can open the web interface by going to http://localhost:9282 or using the command

$ watchtower open
