Description

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.

Installation:

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://whatpulse.org/files/linux/setup-input-permissions.sh

If your browser won't let you download .sh scripts, use this:

curl -o setup-input-permissions.sh https://whatpulse.org/files/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.

Known limitations:

  • Not supported in Wayland (yet).
  • Unpulsed and application traffic is not counted.

Feedback:

Please send your feedback either to the forums ( http://whatpulse.org/forums ) or support@whatpulse.org.
