Time tracking you can host anywhere. Full export support in multiple formats and easily extensible.
This app is currently very unstable. Everything may, and probably will, change. All migrations are going to be wiped and setup properly before release 1.0 so you will not be able to upgrade to 1.0 from early development.

There is a demo instance of Timestrap on Heroku that resets every 10 minutes.
All installations and the demo create a superuser to get you started, if this is a production deployment you will want to change these.
The easiest way to run Timestrap and the only installation that I can actively support since I use it myself in production.
For manual deployments to Heroku, make sure to create two environmental
variables before pushing using
heroku config:set DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=timestrap.settings.heroku heroku config:set SECRET_KEY=ChangeMeToSomethingRandom
This creates a minimal docker server setup for Timestrap. This currently is in development and may not have persistent data without fiddling. Any help to improve the docker configuration files would be appreciated.
Docker Compose is used for running multiple containers since we require a PostgreSQL database and, not yet but soon, a Redis server for messages and events.
Make sure to update the environmental variables in
timestrap/settings/docker.py file to see if you'd like to change
anything then run:
docker-compose up --detach --build
To migrate the database, create your first superuser, and create the initial site configuration you then need to run:
docker-compose exec web python3 manage.py migrate
The Timestrap application should now be running on port 80 of whatever system you ran these commands on, if you ran this locally then that would be http://localhost/.
All data should be stored in the timestrap_db volume. If you wish to rebuild Timestrap at the latest you can do the following from the timestrap repo you cloned:
git pull docker-compose up --detach --build docker-compose exec web python3 manage.py migrate
All data will be kept during this process and you'll have the latest version of Timestrap.
If you'd like to contribute code to Timestrap you'll need to do this!
You'll probably need to install pipenv with pip, run
pip install pipenv to
get this. Same with yarn for node,
npm install --global yarn. On some systems
you may have to install some additional development files. For example on
Ubuntu you will need to install
apt install build-essential. On Alpine you
apk add python3-dev nodejs-dev postgresql-dev gcc musl-dev libffi-dev.
Once you have all of the above you can get started!
yarn install pipenv install --dev
After all the dependencies install you can migrate the database and run the server.
pipenv run python manage.py migrate pipenv run python manage.py fake yarn start
Timestrap should now be running at http://localhost:8000 and the test server will automatically recognize and recompile changes to any file allowing for quick modification and review.
Once you've made your changes you can share your changes by creating a pull request!
