Track Eclipse editing activity along with 'idle' time: any plugin or suggestions? [message #306497] Mon, 31 July 2006 18:02

Hi,
Does anyone have suggestions on how to track time working on Eclipse
project files (i.e. source files)? I want something which keeps track of
idle time (i.e. I walk away from computer/workbench for 5+ minutes).

I can think of two obvious approaches, assuming there is not already
a plugin:
1) create a plugin to track editor activity and idle time.

2) analyze local change history, cvs, or some other resource history
information that already exists.

I think solution #1 is the doable, but I need some pointers to the best
approach for using existing Eclipse API to track activity vs. idle. I
assume/hope there is some 'hook' where I can capture keystrokes
throughout the workbench.

I think solution 2 will not be able to track idle/break
time.

My goal is something like a 'smart' time sheet plugin for people who use
eclipse extensively.
Thanks in advance,

Sean
