    ActivityWatch is a free, open-source time tracking application for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android, which tracks the users device usage (such as active application, web browsing, file editing, and more). Its user interface is web-based and written in JavaScript.

    As opposed to many other time-tracking softwares, ActivityWatch focuses on personal (non-commercial) use and privacy. Examples of such use include measuring productivity, managing excessive social media use, and Quantified Self-related goals.[5][6]


    Development first started in December 2014.[7] The first release was published in May 2015[2] and in 2016 the code was rewritten into a client-server architecture with a web interface, with the intention of making it modular and extensible.

    In 2018, the server component (originally written in Python) was rewritten in Rust to improve performance and allow for porting to Android.

    In 2019, an Android app based on the Rust server was released, with support for the Android-based VR headset Oculus Quest, making it the first time tracking application supported on that device.[citation needed]
