Hey, this is a bugfix release of the latest TimeTracker for OSX. Please be sure to read the previous blog posts about it to know what it will do to your old settings files, etc.
Changes in this version
* changed NIB file format to 10.4 (might fix issues reported by some users)
* fixed a bug where workperiods (time records) in the right hand pane were not displayed when you had a filter on and had the “All Projects” item selected.
At the moment I dont have a 10.4 machine which is why I cannot really test it on 10.4 (although XCode says everything should be fine :). So if you are running 10.4 and have issues where time records dont appear properly please check the console for anything suspicious and mail me your findings (a screenshot and an exact description of what you were doing would be very helpful).
Hey, this is the latest version of TimeTracker. Please be sure to read the previous blogposts about this version regarding backing up your old data.
This version willi now properly read old TimeTracker data files in <$HOME>/Library/Preferences/com.slooz.timetracker but the new files will be stored to <$HOME>/Library/Application Support/TimeTracker/data.plist.
Be aware that the old file will only read if the new file version is not available (initial data migration) subsequently the old com.slooz.timetracker file will simply remain untouched (it still does not hurt to make a backup in case you are not using time machine).
Another added feature is the ability to filter also in the comments. Just enter a text and only matching entries with matching comments will be displayed. Also note that all the totals (on the other panes) are properly updated 🙂
Hey this is a new version of the TimeTracker. I have been trying to get the code integrated into the official source tree but so far Aaron seems to be very busy and we havent made much progress. So please read the previous post about my version of TimeTracker and some of its enhancements.
This new version adds
Icons from Esteban Reyes (thanks a lot!)
Day/Week/Month filter mode is now sticky (if you change the start date the filter will be immediately applied)
Compatible with OSX 10.4 Universal Binary (previous versions were Leopard only)
please read the first timeTracker post as well for instructions about backing up the data file
After lots of hackery I finally got a decent semi automated iGTD -> iPhone export working.
It goes like that:
it changes the default html export format of iGTD, based on the information here. You have to open the package contents of iGTD and replace the old export templates with these files. The template is inspired by the good looking OmniFocus bookmark exporter (OFfline)
then create a folder which will receive the exported html file
use this folder action script which is based on the information macosxhints
put the script into /Library/Scripts/Folder Action Scripts
How to use:
1. go to the context view (projects view does not work yet)
2. select File->Export to file
3. in the export dialog select “HTML table” as a format
4. save it in the folder that you have assigned the folder action to
In the near future I intend to extend this to also sync with an iphone data bookmark but for now this is already quite nice.
This Blog entry has
a nice description of what is necessary to get J2ME app development on
MacOSX going including antenna support. I figured out most of the stuff
myself before I stumbled over this post (grr).
To get the WTK recognized by eclipse, you need to try and lauch
<wtk-root>/bin/ktoolbar. This will fail since a folder called Mac
is missing. Just rename the existing Linux folder (in the specified
directory) to Mac and this should work. After this EclipseME will be
able to import the WTK as a device profile which you can then use to
build your project.
To debug you can then use MicroEmu in eclipse (as a standard java app rather than using EclipseME)
At the moment I am getting involved in a little program called TimeTracker. Back when I was mainly using Windows I used TimeTracker
which I liked quite a lot. The Mac version has similar features but
lacks filtering and reporting features which I am in the process of
Most of the features I need already work and I am in conversation with the project lead to get them integrated.
For the not so faint of heart here is a recent build which has these additional features
All Projects/ All Tasks view
mode (Day / Week / Month). Pick a date first and then click on day /
week / month to filter the records accordingly. In combination with the
AllProjects view this is a powerful reporting tool as also all sums
will be properly updated
preliminary csv export. Upon app close
all records will be also saved into <$HOME>/times.csv (now that
the filtering and summary views work, I hardly use it anymore)
ability to modify the parent task / project of an entry (no more delete and create new)
the idle watcher to also be invoked when computer goes on standby (very
nice for laptop users, just close the lid and timetracker will notice
that you dont work anymore)
highlighting of the current running time record (grey font) to immediately see which one is the active one.
added a “comment” field that allows you to write a descriptive comment of what you did.
The storage format of my version is not compatible with the currently
available version from googleCode. So if you got valuable data already,
be sure to backup:
