Kimai is free and open source. Kimai is software that tracks work time, and classifies it. It tracks time and prints out a summary of your activities on demand. Yearly, monthly, daily, by customer, by project, by action.

Its simplicity is its strength. Due to Kimai's Web browser based interface it runs cross-platform. Also it runs cross-network. Likewise you can install it as a Web service or as a single-user program on your local workstation.

While there are many programs one can use for time and project tracking, they tend to be overkill for my rather simple

One very important note about this software. It is not a Cocoa app and thus requires very special installation instructions.
It is made using PHP and MySQL and consists of a number of files in a folder... not a one-clickable icon like a cocoa app. You can only access it through a web browser and you really should understand how to properly secure an apache directory before using this or your data will be available for anyone on the web to see. This also means you will need to have PHP, the MySQL database and a webserver (Apache) running.

You will need to follow the installation instructions carefully and be able to:
- run the files from your webserver's doc root (don't know what that is? Don't download this app)
- edit php files (to set the configuration)
- understand how to change file permissions (if you don't know what the unix commands chmod or chown do, you may want to read up on that)
- you must remember to delete the install.php file after installing and before any attempts to update the app.

I'm surprised the author doesn't mention all of this as this application is quite different from most of what you find on Macupdate... more like something you'd find on sourceforge.com

There are many webbased apps on macupdate. So I see no reason why this shouldn't be here.

Oh, I agree with you entirely. I am happy to see things like Kimai on Macupdate.
It's just that users of "traditional" Mac programs often get confused when they download what appears to be nothing more than a folder full of files. Some extra explanation helps them to understand what it all is.

Kimai does not have to run to do the recording. Even with a recording running you can quit your Browser. Your time is still recording until you stop it from any Web browser that has access to your installment. It is designed to hold lots of users but you can use it for a single user if you need to.
