Productivity Tracker Powered by Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

From by  via Instructables

Productivity Tracker is a magic mirror, but instead of displaying the time, weather and a motivating quote, it displays 4 things;

  • The percentage of the time you have spent on productive material on your computer and phone for that day.( RescueTime)
  • A radar graph showing how much time you spent along with the categories of the programs-apps you used compared to yesterdays usage.(RescueTime)

And if the percentage of the time you’ve spent on productive material is over 50% the LEDs will display a bright green color. If it is under 50% it will display a red color, signaling you to be more productive! You can also set a goal yourself.

In the first step, I will explain the idea behind productivity-tracker. Next, I’ll give you two different tools&parts list, so you can build the full project or a basic version(Doesn’t include the LEDs) that does not require soldering skills. Later I will show you how I prototyped my version of the project, so you have an idea on how to model your own prototype. Also, I will get into detail at the code section so you can customize the code for your own needs. At the end, I will give you a Trouble-shooting guide based on the problems I encountered during this build. And expand the list with your questions.

The purpose of this instructable is not just to give you a cookbook. I’ll show you the way I built this project and provide you with open-ended questions, so you can add your own ideas, and take this project even further. I strongly encourage you to share your build when it’s done! Let’s get started.
