Kimai is software that tracks work time, and classifies it. Kimai project tracks time and prints out a summary of your activities on demand. Yearly, monthly, daily, by customer, by project, by action ...
It's simplicity is it's strength. Due to Kimai's web browser based interface it runs cross-platform. Also it runs cross-network. Likewise you can install it as a web service or as a single-user program on your local workstation.
While there are many programs one can use for time and project tracking, they tend to be overkill for my rather simple needs. Kimai came about because I was tired to feed lame boring excel tables ...
Kimai does not have to run to do the recording. Even with a recording running you can quit your Browser. Your time is still recording until you stop it from any web browser that has access to your installment. It is designed to hold lots of users but you can use it for a single user if you need to.
Kimai is based on PHP/MySQL technology. If you don't have a web server installed on your machine you can use XAMPP (Windows and Mac). XAMPP comes with everything you need for Kimai.
Kimai is localized in English, German, Nederlands, Spanish and French so far. Greek and Luxemburgian are available soon. You can always send us your self-made language files. Those are immediately available via online update and will be shipped with the next release also.
· Kimai runs best with Firefox or Safari
· You first need a database running on your mysql server
· Enter database name, server, host, etc. into the /includes/conf.php file
· Call up install.php in your browser (e.g. http://localhost/kimai_0.6.1/install.php)
(the database tables are generated automatically or updated if needed)
· Setup ready!
Don't try to use Kimai with InternetExporer. That won't work yet!
We're still working on support for Explorer and other browsers.
