Timekeeper for Eclipse

This is a simple time-tracking plug-in integrating with Eclipse Mylyn Tasks.


Whenever a task is activated in Mylyn it will automatically show up in the Workweek view with a bold label, and the amount of time the task is active will be tracked. An activity will be added to the task, which is the entity keeping track of the time and a short note. Multiple activities can be added to each task.

When the task is deactivated the end time is registered on the activity and the active time is added to the toal for the task on the particular day. It is also possible to manually edit the start and stop times by clicking into the cell.

The context menu and toolbar buttons can be used to browse back and forward by one week. The current locale is used to determine week numbers. Left of the navigation buttons there is a button for copying and exporting the displayed workweek in various formats. The export definitions can be modified or new ones can be added using Freemarker templates found in the preference settings.

See the wiki for more about usage.


You can install from the Eclipse Marketplace or drag into an running Eclipse instance.


Clone the project and from the root execute:

mvn clean verify

When the build completes successfully there will be a Eclipse p2 repository at net.resheim.eclipse.timekeeper-site/target/repository which you can install from.


This project started out as an experiment, attempting to make use of the Java 8 Date/Time API along with new collection features such as Streams. Hence Java 8 is absolutely required for this feature to work.

This project is using JProfiler for debugging performance issues.
