Last year, I bought a Timeular tracker and I’ve been using it the past months to check the time I spent on my activities and plan my days better. Furthermore, on work-from-home days, it’s hard to track how many hours I work per day, and the tracker helps me a lot with this! Therefore, I still recommend it.
I also wrote an article about the tracker and the Timeular application: Timeular: Tracking your time using an Octahedron. Both work great on Windows, Mac OS, and Android. However, Timeular doesn’t offer a Linux/Ubuntu application and that’s VERY ANNOYING!
If you are using Linux, Timeular recommends using the smartphone application to track your activities. But this is not the same apparently.
That is why, last night, I decided to write an application in Python. This app connects to the tracker and sends the tracking data to the Timeular servers. Timeular offers an API to do that. Thus, I took every code that I found on Github to write an application. So it’s not a clean application, but it works even better than the application written using GO.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
