Check out the web version even though it is a bit limited: Time tracking only works if the app is open and for idle time tracking to work, the chrome extension has to be installed.
If you want the Jira integration and idle time tracking to work, you have to also download and install the Super Productivity Chrome Extension.
Due to certification issues it's recommended to download the app from the Microsoft Store:
You can also install the app using Chocolatey:
choco install super-productivity
Install via command-line:
# stable sudo snap install superproductivity # edge channel releases sudo snap install --channel=edge superproductivity # it is also recommended to disable updates to the app while it is running: sudo snap set core experimental.refresh-app-awareness=true
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/superproductivity-bin.git cd superproductivity-bin makepkg -si
Install via homebrew cask:
brew install --cask superproductivity

To run the development server you need to have node installed at least in the version 14. Go to https://nodejs.org for installation instructions.
git clone https://github.com/johannesjo/super-productivity.git
cd super-productivity npm i -g @angular/cli npm i
Run the dev server
If you want to run the app standalone do the following:
ng serve # in a new console tab npm start
Packaging the app is done via electron-builder. To start packaging run
npm run dist. If you want to add new platforms and experiment with the build options the easiest way to do so is manipulating the
build property in the package.json, but you can also use the command line interface of electron builder.
docker run -d -p 80:80 johannesjo/super-productivity:latest
In addition to color coding your projects and tags and to the dark and light theme you can also load completely custom css to restyle everything. To load a custom theme you simply need put them into a new file named
styles.css directly in the user data folder.
If using the integrated WebDAV Syncing is not working out for you, you can also try to sync all app files, which are located in the user data folder.
For the desktop version automatic backups are stored per default in the
backup sub folder of the user data folder. Once you located a backup you can restore it on the settings page under
Sync & Export/Import/Export/Import from file.
Where user data is stored differs from os to os. The most common locations are:
The path should be shown when you go to the "Automatic Backups` section on the configuration page (minus the "backup" sub folder). You can also see it printed out when you start the app from the command line.
For web browsers data is simply stored for the current user inside the browser storage.
You can specify a custom folder for saving your data by starting the application with the
--user-data-dir parameter like so:
