Project Overview


WakaTime for Jetbrains IDE's can be configured via Tools -> WakaTime Settings.

For more settings, WakaTime plugins share a common config file .wakatime.cfg located in your user home directory with these options available.


Inside your IDE, select Preferences -> Plugins, then find the WakaTime plugin. Click Uninstall. Then delete your ~/.wakatime.cfg config file.


First, turn on debug mode from File -> WakaTime Settings. Then restart your IDE.

Now, look for WakaTime related messages in your idea.log file:

If the plugin was not loaded, you won't have a WakaTime Settings menu. In that case, add this line to your ~/.wakatime.cfg file:

debug = true

(C:\Users\<user>\.wakatime.cfg on Windows)
