Do you feel that you could have moved your hands, keystroke by keystroke, across the globe twice every day? Interested in finding out just how much you type a day? Do you know which applications you use the most? Do you know which applications use the most bandwidth?
WhatPulse is a small application that measures your keyboard/mouse usage, down- & uploads and your uptime. It sends these statistics to https://whatpulse.org where you can use these stats to analyze your computing life, compete against or with your friends and compare your statistics to other people.
Install by running:
snap install --devmode --beta whatpulse
The client tries to do this at install, but you may need to download and run
setup-input-permissions.sh in order for WhatPulse to access your input devices: https://files.whatpulse.org/linux/setup-input-permissions.sh
If your browser won't let you download .sh scripts, use this:
curl -o setup-input-permissions.sh https://files.whatpulse.org/linux/setup-input-permissions.sh sudo sh setup-input-permissions.sh
The UI will also warning you when the input permissions are not set up correctly.
All client features are available, except for a few that are limited by the confinement of the snap environment.
- Not supported in Wayland (yet).
- Unpulsed and application traffic is not counted.
