Project Description

Hamster RC

Hamster RC (Remote Control) is a little web application that lets you control the Hamster time tracker running on your desktop from a remote browser as the one running on your mobile device.

So far it shows the facts made the current day and lets you start and stop a new activity. It communicates with Hamster via DBus.

I wrote it because many times I have to go here and there in the office and I don’t spend the whole day sitting at my desk. I need to track where I spent my time and carrying my phone around is something I usually do anyway. I have my desktop IP address saved as a bookmark in my mobile browser so it’s quite easy to access Hamster now :-)

Installation

Just type:

easy_install hamster-rc

Remember that you need python binding for dbus installed. Unfortunately this is it not easy in an isolated environment such as virtualenv or buildout. In my preferred distribution (Fedora) this is provided by the dbus-python package. The rest of python dependencies (mako, webob and routes) are installed automatically by easy_install.

Usage

Once it is installed, run it like this:

hamster-rc --host=192.168.0.2 --port=10000

and it will listen on that IP address and TCP port. It runs on localhost:8888 by default, which is not very useful since you want to access it from the outside.

Now, point your browser to http://192.168.0.2:10000 and just click on the buttons!

Development

You can get the last bleeding edge version of hamster-rc by getting a clone of the Mercurial repository:

hg clone https://bitbucket.org/lgs/hamster-rc

Future

Some features I may implement in the future are:

  • Simple authentication
  • HTML5 local storage support for saving the facts when you lost connection to the server. Later, when there is connection again, it could sync these facts back to Hamster.

Feel free to send me patches for these and other features you would like to have. Other feedback is also welcomed.
