  • This sounds/ looks like a better solution that the existing Kimai package.



  • Forgot about this but yes, FOSS alternative to what Upwork offers. I'll add to my wishlist. Might be able to sponsor but could do with a few others chipping in as I don't want to undervalue app-devs.

    It was already there! (that's actually how I was reminded of it! 😛 )

    Now you've got it there twice!

    Feels like it's almost time to just go ahead start a Cloudron App Dev collective on Open Collective! (or wait for @murgero @atrilahiji to finish packaging Fosspay and use that)



  • Nice! I’ve been looking for a simple and decent looking time tracking tool.

    Although:

    For each employee, you can specifically enable screenshot capture and activity tracking for keyboard and mouse. These instruments will help you get insights about how good is workflow built in your company.

    What in the holy mother of dockerwhale 🤯

    I’d be quite hesitant to include and promote actual spyware on the Cloudron app store.

    Yikes.

    I guess could just not enable those features? Or even comment them out in the code or something!



  • For interest, currently we use timecamp.com and I looked at activitywatch.net but couldn't figure out how to get it to work.

    The killer feature for us being able to tag application window names, website titles and URLs for attribution to connected projects or tasks.

    I haven't tested Cattr to see if it does that - be amazing if it did but I couldn't see that.

    So it's a nice looking app to have for some uses, but in practice, I try to avoid anything that relies on human interaction for logging.
