A time tracker for the uncomplicated freelancer.

Time-tracking is a hugely important part of running my business — and perhaps your business too. Over the years I’ve tried out a large number of time trackers, native apps, browser-based apps, and even just pen and paper. None have cut the mustard, they were either too bloated, slow, buggy, or difficult to upgrade. Mostly they just didn’t work the way that I work.

So, I created TallyHo, with a ‘simple by design’ philosophy.

TallyHo is lightweight, uses easily readable/modifiable/backup-able textfiles as its database, and simply runs in your browser.

So, is it any good?

I’ve been using TallyHo for almost two years, longer than I’ve stuck with any other time tracker, so that’s a good sign. It’s open-source and lives on GitHub where you can read more about it and download for free.

I plan to rebuild TallyHo in React but I am still deciding what sort of database to use. Any suggestions?
