activitywatch v0.8.0b8 releases: Log what you do on your computer

The goal of ActivityWatch is simple: Enable the collection of as much valuable lifedata as possible without compromising user privacy.

We’ve worked towards this goal by creating an application for safe storage of the data on the user’s local machine and as well as a set of watchers which record data such as:

  • Currently active application and the title of its window
  • Currently active browser tab and its title and URL
  • Keyboard and mouse activity, to detect if you are afk or not

It is up to you as a user to collect as much as you want, or as little as you want (and we hope some of you will help write watchers so we can collect more).

Note: ActivityWatch is under development. There is still work to be done so we provide it with no guarantees with the hope that others may wish to help and give their feedback!
