Time tracking with TextMate

Post date: Nov 06, 2010 10:19:32 AM

Textmate is the text editor I use for work. I use it to edit my LaTeX files, Matlab and Fortran codes etc....

It is very powerful as you can customize almost everything and it is not expensive. You can learn more on the macromate website here.

It became useful for me to have an idea of how much time I would spent on my different projects. 

I first tried to install the matewatch program, after I couldn't have it to work after 2 hours so I gave up. That's really a shame because it looked very nice.

I get stuck with this error when trying to launch 'matematch start -v':

/opt/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rubyosa-0.4.0/lib/rbosa.rb:470: warning: Passing no parameters to XML::Parser.new is deprecated.  Pass an instance of XML::Parser::Context instead.

XML::Parser#string is deprecated.  Use XML::Parser.string instead

undefined method `returning' for Matewatch:Class

So I tried time_tap.

sudo gem install time_tap

    sudo gem install rack

First you need Ruby version 1.8.7 at least. You can install it from porticus.
