As a developer, my productivity is largely quantifiable by the number of keystrokes (and mouse clicks) I produce during a day. I’ve been tracking this data (and a lot of other data that could be useful) with WhatPulse.

WhatPulse provides an unauthenticated Web API (because the stats are public), which should make it fairly easy to track pulses. See for more details.

    Whatpulse would be very interesting to have. Like you i love it. And whatpulse data probably correlates with a lot of things.

    I’d be very glad to see this happen, even if it’d be only for WhatPulse Premium users for whatever reason. Additional info:

    I’d look into doing something myself in order to learn programming, but I can’t see a keystroke attribute that I can use. This one’s on you, guys and gals ;)

    I’ve added your requested attribute to this developer thread 😊

    This in combination with Rescue Time would be fantastic!

    In addition to keystrokes, WhatPulse also tracks: clicks (Mouse clicks), uptime (WhatPulse uptime I believe, not computer uptime), download and upload (Network logging via WinPcap).

    My public profile might help show this in practice, if you’re interested in adding the other attributes before the new 2020 roadmap.

    With the focus on re-engineering Exist itself next year, I realise that integrations are going to take a back seat for a while, so I thought I might look at working on some “third party” integrations to pull data into Exist for others, and WhatPulse is a prime candidate for my first project.

    We probably won’t be adding new attributes any time soon, I’m sorry, as we only just did a batch.

    No problem, I figured I was a bit late to the discussion for anything to be done at this point. The information is here for posterity at least now.
