Watchers are the parts of ActivityWatch that do all the data collecting.
ActivityWatch comes bundled with two watchers by default:
aw-watcher-afk - Watches for mouse & keyboard activity to detect if the user is active.
aw-watcher-window - Watches the active window, its title, and it’s url (on Chrome-based browsers & Safari).
The default watchers are collecting some of the most important data. But there is more to collect, so here are some other watchers that let you do so.
Watches properties of the active tab like title, URL, and incognito state.
aw-watcher-web - The official browser extension, supports Chrome and Firefox.
Watches the actively edited file and associated metadata like path, language, and project name (folder name of git root)
If you want to more accurately track media consumption.
Other watchers which are very useful too.
aw-watcher-input - (WIP) Tracks the number of keypresses and distance that mouse is moved.
bcbernardo/aw-watcher-ask - (WIP) Periodically poses questions to the user and records her answers.
