Redmine Time Tracker

RedTimer is an easy-to-use platform-independent time tracker which allows the user to track time while working on an issue. Furthermore, a user can create new issues using RedTimer during which the time tracking will already start.


After starting RedTimer for the first time, the settings window will be displayed. In the settings window, you can specify the URL of the Redmine instance and the API key which can be found in the Redmine account settings.

Settings window

In the main window, you can enter or select an issue. After issue selection, the issue data will be displayed and the timer can be started.
