How To Use (Easy And Common Way)

Applicable to people dont want to read below long text and only use VSCode in one computer

  1. Install this extension.
  2. Coding as you did before.
  3. Get your coding report by command CodingTracker: Show your coding activities report
    • press F1 to open VSCode command panel, then search command above and click it

How To Use (Fully guide) TLDR

VSCode Coding Tracker actually has two part: extension and server (C/S)

And extension use internal server installed in node_modules by default.

But you could install a server program on you server and use it on VSCode on different computers.

Server program repository: vscode-coding-tracker-server

Step1. Installing extension to your VSCode

Search vscode-coding-tracker in VSCode extension panel and install it.

Step2. Install and Launching tracker server in remote server or local

Local computer (controlled by VSCode)

You don't need to do anything.(And don't change the configuration codingTracker.localServerMode to false)

In this situation, the database files are located in $HOME/.coding-tracker/

Local computer (controlled by yourself)

  1. Set your vscode configuration codingTracker.localServerMode to false
  2. Open a terminal/command line
  3. Change path to %HOME%/.vscode/extensions/hangxingliu.vscode-coding-tracker-0.6.0
    • In Windows OS, enter command: cd %HOME%/.vscode/extensions/hangxingliu.vscode-coding-tracker-0.6.0
    • In Linux/Mac OS, enter command: cd $HOME/.vscode/extensions/hangxingliu.vscode-coding-tracker-0.6.0
  4. Execute npm i
  5. Launch tracker server by using command: npm start -- -t ${REPLACE_TO_YOUR_TOKEN}
    • Such as npm start -- -t test_token, means your upload token is test_token
    • And you can get more configurations and descriptions by using command npm start -- --help
    • Be care! It is necessary to add -- following to npm start to passing following arguments to tracker server
  6. And your tracking data is under ./database in default.

Remote server

  1. Set your vscode configuration codingTracker.localServerMode to false
  2. Login into your remote server
  3. Be sure to install node and npm environments
  4. Typing command npm i vscode-coding-tracker-server (Global install: append -g to the command)
  5. Launch tracker server by using command: npm start -- -t ${REPLACE_TO_YOUR_TOKEN}
  6. And your tracking data is under ./database in default.

Step 3. Configuring the upload token and your server address in your VSCode

configurations:

  • codingTracker.serverURL (set up such as "http://localhost:10345")
    • If you use local tracker server and use default config, you can ignore this config.
    • Because default value of this config is http://localhost:10345
  • codingTracker.uploadToken (set up such as "123456")
    • Setting up this value same as the token you launch your server
  • codingTracker.computerId (set up this computer name then you can easy to know which computer you coding more time)
    • (Optional config)
  • codingTracker.localServerMode (in default is true). Please refer above
  • codingTracker.moreThinkingTime (in default is 0 ). More thinking time for tracking
    • This config is making for people need more thinking time in coding activity.
    • The bigger value you set the longer time you get in report time
    • I don't recommend setting up this value bigger, Because I believe the default think time in extension is nice followed my usage

Step 4. See your report

Open command panel in your VSCode.Then search and click command CodingTracker: Show your coding activities report

Or, just open browser and enter http://${YOUR_SERVER_HOST_NAME}:${PORT}/report/?token=${API_TOKEN}

  • Such as http://127.0.0.1:10345/report/
  • Such as http://mydomain.com:10345/report/?token=myUploadToken

More commands:

  • codingTracker.startLocalServer
  • codingTracker.stopLocalServer
  • codingTracker.showReport
