The status bar in your text editor or IDE shows two numbers: your KPM (keystrokes per minute) in your last recorded minute and your session time for your current session. We use the following icons to indicate your status:
The KPM count and rocket are subtle reminders of coding focus and intensity during sessions. The longer the rocket stays visible the higher your average KPM will be. Longer sessions are generally more productive, because you can maintain context and more easily retain logical constructs related to your code. Session time helps as a subtle reminder to try and target longer, more productive sessions (as opposed to short sessions with lots of interrupts).
Yes, you have the option to delete your data under account management.
If you are having trouble installing your plugin, please follow these steps:
Yes. Software works with multiple text editors or IDEs across multiple devices. See our plugin library here.
Software collects data from your text editor or IDE and Google calendar to provide a range of insights that can help build productive habits. For instance, Software can help you identify natural times during the week when you achieve coding flow and set block times and reminders on your calendar to take advantage of those times. Software will automatically track how much you code during regular work hours versus nights and weekends, and can help you code more during regular work hours to achieve a happier work-life balance. Software can also help you track a range of weekly performance metrics, including coding time, total keystrokes, keystrokes per minute, lines of code, etc. to see if you are increasing or decreasing work volume week by week or month by month. Over time, we will provide even more data and value across developer tools.
When you code offline, your data is temporarily stored in your data.json file in your .software folder. When you regain connectivity, we batch send data from this file to Software.com. You can check your last update time for each plugin in your session.json folder.
Your software matters. We track the data behind your software to help you code smarter.
Software is free for individuals and teams. For access to historical data beyond six months, modest data charges may apply (pricing will be determined after beta). In the future, we will provide enterprise features and pricing as well.

Yes, your plugin collects music data from iTunes and Spotify APIs to correlate coding data with songs, genres, and playlists you listen to as you work.
