Emacs Minor Mode for WakaTime

wakatime-mode is an automatic time tracking extension for Emacs using WakaTime.


Enable WakaTime for the current buffer by invoking M-x wakatime-mode. If you wish to activate it globally, run M-x global-wakatime-mode.


Set variable wakatime-api-key to your API key. Point wakatime-cli-path to the absolute path of the CLI script (wakatime-cli.py).


Heads Up! WakaTime depends on Python being installed to work correctly.

  1. Get an API key from: http://wakatime.com.

  2. Install wakatime-mode for Emacs using MELPA.

  3. You will see a prompt asking for your API key. Enter your API key, then press enter.

  4. Download or clone the wakatime-cli repository.

  5. You will see a prompt asking for the path to wakatime-cli.py. Enter the path to the wakatime-cli.py file, then press enter.

  6. Use Emacs with wakatime-mode turned on and your time will automatically be tracked for you.

  7. Visit http://wakatime.com to see your logged time.

  8. Consider installing BIND9 to cache your repeated DNS requests: sudo apt-get install bind9
