How to use it

If you need some help, the best place to start is this article on dev.to.

If you prefer there is also a (long) youtube video available.

There is another article on how I personally might use the app - and still another one on how I implement the 'eat the frog' prioritizing scheme in the app .

If you have further questions, please refer to the discussions page.

🌐 Web Version

Check out the web version eventhough it is a bit limited: Time tracking only works if the app is open and for idle time tracking to work, the chrome extension has to be installed.

If you want the Jira integration and idle time tracking to work, you have to also download and install the Super Productivity Chrome Extension.

  9. Sponsor the project

Running the development server

To run the development server you need to have node installed at least in the version 14. Go to https://nodejs.org for installation instructions.

Clone repo

git clone https://github.com/johannesjo/super-productivity.git

Install dependencies

cd super-productivity
npm i -g @angular/cli
npm i

Run the dev server

ng serve

Afterwards you can open http://localhost:4200 in your browser. For most adjustments this should be enough and also enables you to use the redux dev tools.

If you want to run the app standalone do the following:

ng serve

# in a new console tab
npm start

Packaging the app

Packaging the app is done via electron-builder. To start packaging run npm run dist. If you want to add new platforms and experiment with the build options the easiest way to do so is manipulating the build property in the package.json, but you can also use the command line interface of electron builder.

Run as Docker Container

docker run -d -p 80:80 johannesjo/super-productivity:latest

Custom themes (desktop only)

In addition to color coding your projects and tags and to the dark and light theme you can also load completely custom css to restyle everything. To load a custom theme you simply need put them into a new file named styles.css directly in the user data folder.

There is a great set of themes available for download in this repository as well as some info on how to role out your own custom themes.

Custom WebDAV Syncing

If using the integrated WebDAV Syncing is not working out for you, you can also try to sync all app files, which are located in the user data folder.

Automatic Backups

For the desktop version automatic backups are stored per default in the backup sub folder of the user data folder. Once you located a backup you can restore it on the settings page under Sync & Export/Import/Export/Import from file.

User Data Folder

Where user data is stored differs from os to os. The most common locations are: Mac OS: ~/Library/Application Support/superProductivity/ Windows: C:\Users\<YOUR_USER_NAME>\AppData\Roaming\superProductivity/ or %APPDATA%\superProductivity Linux: ~/.config/superProductivity/

The path should be shown when you go to the "Automatic Backups` section on the configuration page (minus the "backup" sub folder). You can also see it printed out when you start the app from the command line.

For web browsers data is simply stored for the current user inside the browser storage.

Using a custom folder to save user data

You can specify a custom folder for saving your data by starting the application with the --user-data-dir parameter like so:

superproductivity --user-data-dir=/path/to/my/data
not_used
Daily Planner Daily Planner
Daily Summary Daily Summary
