Time tracking with arbtt
Arbtt is automatic, rule-based time tracker. And I like it because it is implemented in Haskell.
I wanted to know how much time have I wasted watching YouTube videos.
I define productivity as the ratio between the time spent consuming information and the time spent producing something:
Further generalization of the above:
If I consume less I will be more productive. Consuming less information will give me the freedom of time.
How to save time using time tracking software? I use Arbtt to track and analyze time spent in front of a computer.
I create Arbbt rules to track time spent reading news, watching YouTube, etc. The rules are in the ~/.arbtt/categorize.cfg file:
What percentage of the time am I actually being productive (coding)?
