    • Don't mess with the solution file

      Don't edit the solution file with the VS extension. Noone on my team should have to know about Codealike and its configuration should not be committed to the repository.

      • Xcode

        A Codealike plugin - like that for Visual Studio but for Xcode - please - pretty please even with a cherry on top :) That would be totally awesome.

        • Add Testing to Activities

          The Activity statistics show the time spend Coding / Debugging / Building.

          It would be really interesting to know which time from Coding is spent writing Tests. During a TDD session I could measure how much of my time is spend on productive code and how much on writing test.

          I could think of different ways to implement this. One way would require knowlede about the TestFramework itself. For instance a Microsoft test is decorated with a [TestClass] attribut.
          Another way would be to have a convention that every project that is named "Projectname.Tests" would be treated as a Test…

            This feature is already in the backlog. The priority is “new feature”. Stability and performance always take precedence against “new feature” but we are certainly investigating how to accomplish that in a way that support both Visual Studio and Eclipse with the many test frameworks out there.

          • Support for VIM

            Build a Codealike plugin - like that for Visual Studio but for VIM.

            • Tracking Other Development Activities

              Would love to have the ability to also tack activities in SQL Management Studio (or track that type of activity through VS).

              Also would love to have you describe what my idle time activities look like (without the in depth of detail found in activity within VS).

              Thanks
              Jeff

                            Thanks for your suggestions. Would you let us know why you would need to reset counters? What would you like to achieve by doing that?

                          • Prevent random Visual Studio crashes for TimeTrackerService

                            My Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 often crashes because of exceptions in TimeTrackingService

                            Codealike.Client.Factories.Metrics.TimeTrackerService+<>c__DisplayClass9.<OnTextBufferModified>b__7(System.Object, System.EventArgs)

                            Sometime only once a day but today it crashed al least 5 times.

                            You should add exception handling, log the exception to the eventlog and add an info to the visual studio status bar. This is way better than letting visual studion just crash.

                            • Make login pop-up window not "always on top"

                              When I open a solution in Visual Studio and Codealike is still not logged in, it opens the login screen, which is set up to be top-most ("always on top" of other windows). Since I manage my passwords in another application, I need to switch between windows to retrieve the password; but, more than that, I NEED to remember that Codealike will be top-most and get the password BEFORE clicking "Sign in", because:

                              - When I click "Sign in", it opens ANOTHER top-most modal window, which is the only one I can move away now, and it doesn't help so…

                                In IntelliJ, every time Codealike uploads data to the server, a toast notification appears. I find this to be quite annoying, and it doesn't seem to provide much value except when debugging. An option to disable this would be great. Thanks!

                                • Define productive websites

                                  You should have "productivity" websites(stackoverflow, msdn.com, github.com, etc.), so when I browse them, you will still count it as productive time, so the red/green circle won't go away and I will be closer to being on fire.
                                  A better solution would be to let the user define the websites. For example, maybe I'm working on Facebook and I'm testing the website :)

                                      • Eclipse CodeAlike Perspective

                                        A hole new codealike perspective for Eclipse. All the metrics inside the IDE, with nice graphics and fully integrated metrics with the project explorer. For example, I click on the StupidTest.java file and CodeAlike visualized all the metrics relevant for that file. Another great idea is not wasting time / money with MacOS X users and XCode / Sublime / IntelliJ / other minorated environments. Spend that time / efforts improving the plugin for Eclipse / Visual Studio.

                                        • Implement time tracking

                                          For certain projects/tasks we need to report time spent to our clients. It would be great if codealike could track time spent on tasks.
