I use WakaTime to measure and improve my focus. Reading Deep Work by Cal Newport made me realize the importance of deep sustained focus. WakaTime seamlessly helps me achieve this goal, and I strongly recommend it.

Install the plugin

  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.
