So I’m using LifeCycle and Timing to track my time. And I find it really frustrating that I cannot see daily timelines from both apps at the same time in the same place. So I’m working on an app that generates a timeline of my day.
The blue items are from LifeCycle, the green items are from LifeCycle and the red is also from Timing but it is Lunch so it got a special highlight.
This timeline includes:
Phisicly where I spend my time from LifeCycle
It gets workouts from the Activities and Apple Health apps (via LifeCycle)
My sleeping habits (via LifeCycle)
When I’m working from Timing
I’m planning on making this software open source and I made it very easy to add support to any app that exports data to CSV, PLIST, JSON or any other text-based format. So if people are interested I can add support to many other apps.
Is this something anyone is interested in? Should I make this into a proper open-source project so that anyone can install, use and customize it or should I just leave it as is on GitHub as a pet project?
Currently I have a setup where the file paths are predefined in a preferences file. So I export all my files into the same folder always.
This way I just need to run 1 command line command. You could even run it with siri shortcuts with the SSH item.
So the only manual part is the exporting. But I do know that timing can export with a scrip so I’m planning on implementing that. And I really wish that iOS apps could export with shortcuts because then 100% of this could be done with a shortcut.
As for the recommended apps, thanks for the suggestions, I’ll put theme in my Trello board. Also as of now since Lifecycle collects sleep data and I collect lifecycle data, every sleep tracking app is supported.
