ScreenTime™ for non iOS devices

Project description


ScreenTime™ for non iOS devices


Now adays most modern mobile phones are equiped with software to keep track of its usage while many desktop devices do not so I decided to make one. Also it is made entirely from the Python standard library.


pip3 install --user screentime


usage: screentime [-h] [--begin] [--end] [--summary]

Keep track of Daniel's unhealthy screen usage.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  --begin, -b    begin a new session
  --end, -e      end a session
  --summary, -s  get infromation on previous sessions

The program works based on sessions. A session is a period of time that you spend on your device. This means that you have to manually say tell it when you start and stop using your device.

Begin a session

$ screentime -b

Ending a session

$ screentime -e

View a summary of your screentime

$ screentime -s

Some issues you should know about

  • You have to manually tell the programm when you are using your device
  • The screen time information is presented in the most plain and boring way possible
