Common interface to the WakaTime api.

Project description


Fully automatic time tracking for programmers.

This is the common interface for the WakaTime api. You shouldn't need to directly use this package unless you are creating a new plugin or your text editor's plugin asks you to install the wakatime cli interface.

Go to to install the plugin for your text editor.


Install the plugin for your IDE/editor at

If you are building a plugin using the `WakaTime API <>`_
then follow the `Creating a Plugin <>`_


Options can be passed via command line, or set in the ``$HOME/.wakatime.cfg``
config file. Command line arguments take precedence over config file settings.
The ``$HOME/.wakatime.cfg`` file is in `INI <>`_
format. An example config file looks like::
debug = false
api_key = your-api-key
hidefilenames = false
exclude =
include =
offline = true
proxy = https://user:pass@localhost:8080


Each `plugin <>`_ should install wakatime for you, except for the `Emacs WakaTime plugin <>`_.
If your plugin does not install wakatime cli(this package), install it with::
pip install wakatime
