Connect your RescueTime account to your GitHub repositories

What is GitHub?

GitHub is the best place to share code with friends, co-workers, classmates, and complete strangers. Over eight million people use GitHub to build amazing things together.

RescueTime can log Highlight events directly from your GitHub code commits.

If you don't have admin access to a project, or you have Git projects that are not hosted on GitHub, you should use our Git Post-commit hook instead.

You can directly connect your RescueTime account to your GitHub projects and log a Highlight event every time you push a commit. It's a great way to keep track of what you are accomplishing in your coding projects without doing any extra work.

Worth noting: You can only connect to projects that you have admin access for, and only your commits will be logged (even if others are making commits to the project).
