Main Configuration File

Default location: $HOME/.config/minetime/config.yml. Format: YAML

The default location may be overwritten by the MINETIME_CONF environment variable.

Here’s an example of the main configuration file:

  activity_id: 9
- 10001
- 10002
- 10003
- my_report_string_id
  9: Developpement

Configuration directory and file are not created upon installation. You may create them manually or launch minetime for the first time and the configuration wizard will kick in.

You can find your API key on your redmine account page ( /my/account ) when logged in, on the right-hand pane of the default layout. Rest API has to be activated on the redmine instance. See Redmine Rest API Documentation for more in depth details.
