I always felt like if i would somehow measure time i spent on various work tasks i could then analyze it and eventually improve efficiency. In company i work for we manage our tasks through Redmine and our internall CRM. In both of them it’s possible to track spent time.
The problem is it’s very very important to make this as much seamless as possible. Well that is important for all apps and tools in general but here it’s really big thing.
Somethimes my morning looks like this. Following things happen in ten minutes together:
So now i need to fast switch between very different contexts. I don’t have time to track my time really. And i don’t remember it retrospectivelly.
Neither of Redmine or our CRM offers this really. They are designated or optimized for something else.
There is a ton of these apps. But when it comes to web apps i’m often unhappy how they work. It might be some small thing in fact but as i’m a developer myself it’f kind of professional deformation and i just can’t get it out of my head. And when it’s such crucial to work it properly i decided to write it myself. After all i can be upset only on myself if it doesn’t work.
And another reason - it will serve as a place where i can test all technology things which interests me.
I released the code under MIT license.
I Might blog about it here :)
