ACKNOWLEDGMENTS --------------- Icons by http://dryicons.com (Aesthetica Icon Set, version 1.12, http://dryicons.com/free-icons/preview/aesthetica/). GOAL ---- MyTime is intended to be a minimalistic time track tool. For me, that currently means the following: - During day-to-day work it takes up minimal screen space, so in a desktop environment it stays in the system tray. - It only has commands for the basic actions: start working on a new or on an existing task, stop working, and edit start/end times and task names for recent activities. - It generally stays out of the way until I use it once a week to generate a report of some kind. However, I do also have the following requirements: - The tool should work cross-platform, at least Windows and Gnome-on-Linux should be supported. - It should be based on a well-defined, simple, and compact time log file format. - It should be flexible in the reports that can be generated (but not necessarily through the GUI: a command-line interface is OK as well). So why did I start creating yet another time track tool? Well, I couldn't find one that fit the above ideas perfectly. And it was also a good excuse to try and create a simple GUI in Java, and to get to know Eclipse better, which I need to do for my day-time job. TODO ---- * Build initial screen to indicate starting/stopping work. * Allow editing of start/end times of work. * Create an 'About' screen, with acknowledgments for DryIcons' icons. * Allow specification of a task name. * Design an initial version of the time log file format. * In the context menu, show a list of recent tasks, and start the timer on a task that is selected. * Make every task/time change persistent to a time log file. Read this file on start-up. * Add a multi-level 'undo' function to the UI (the time log is not rolled back, but an undo entry is added). * Add a multi-level 'redo' function. * Allow specification of 'tags' for each task name, to help in reporting. * Try to make the application respond to (configurable) global keystrokes.
