Project Overview


Settings for atom-wakatime are under Settings -> Packages -> wakatime -> Settings.

Additional settings are in $HOME/.wakatime.cfg for wakatime cli.


Atom writes errors to the Atom Developer Console. To check for errors:

  1. Turn on the debug checkbox in Settings -> Packages -> wakatime -> Settings
  2. Inside Atom, go to View -> Developer -> Toggle Developer Tools
  3. Clear the developer console (the circle button top left of the console)
  4. Inside Atom, go to View -> Developer -> Reload Window

That will reload all plugins including WakaTime, and you should see the startup process logged in the developer console. If there are no errors in your developer console after startup and editing a file, then check for errors in your ~/.wakatime.log file.

For checking your ~/.wakatime.log file, see wakatime/wakatime#troubleshooting.

Note: Behind a proxy? Configure Atom to use your proxy when installing wakatime:
