WakaTime for Kakoune Kakoune

The open source plugin for productivity metrics, goals, leaderboards, and automatic time tracking.


  1. Install wakatime-cli:

    curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wakatime/vim-wakatime/master/scripts/install_cli.py | python

    If the above command doesn't work, download install_cli.py and run it manually with Python 3.

  2. Create a ~/.wakatime.cfg file with contents:

    [settings] api_key = XXXX

    Replace XXXX with your actual API Key.

  3. Put wakatime.kak in your autoload folder, located at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/kak/autoload.

    (Usually ~/.config/kak/autoload or /usr/local/share/kak/autoload)

  4. Use Kakoune like normal and your stats will automatically show on your WakaTime Dashboard.

For information about the ~/.wakatime.cfg format, see the wakatime-cli docs.
