Has anyone managed to get the wakatime plugin to work in Wing Pro 10?

Hi, I have several projects in Wing that I need to keep time details recorded for billing. Has anyone managed to get the wakatime plugin to work in Wing, any version? It works in Notepad++ ok and I see NP++ in the logs but after installing wakatime according to their instructions nothing shows up in the logs even with debug enabled, in either the wing or wakatime logs. I run the install, it says restart Wing and there's nothing in the Files or Tools menu, and nowhere to enter my API key. If you haven't managed to get this working either is there another time recording tool that works with Wing Pro?


  • Windows 11
  • Python 3. 10.11

-Wing Pro 10.0.4

It looks like the install script has not been updated for recent versions of Wing. You should be able to install it by running the install script to get the wakatime cmd line .exe and then downloading the Wing extension script from… & copying the file to the scripts subdirectory of your Wing settings directory listed in the about dialog box.

I was able to get the extension script to load and run the wakatime .exe but I wasn't able to go further without an apikey.

I will contribute fixes to the file back to wakatime.

Note - this issue has been fixed on the wakatime Wing installer at… as they have increased supported Wing all versions up to 99.

Thank you! The scripts folder had to be the /user/Appdata/Roaming location, not the Windows/Program Files/Wing 10 as provided in the About-Settings dir as you discovered!

Running the install gives a 304 on the API response as it's a proxy

[WakaTime] Current wakatime-cli version is v1.90.0
[WakaTime] Checking for updates to wakatime-cli...
[WakaTime] GitHub API Response 304
[WakaTime] wakatime-cli is up to date. Installed. You may now restart Wing.

This install doesn't add the file in the correct folder, so follow advice given by Support above. I had flagged this as an issue on Github repo but no response. There were a number of corrections to other supported IDE's but not Wing.

It now recognises my key and is working - thank you for your brilliant assistance and the solution.

I used wget for the python file for script - wget… and just copied into Roaming script location, but curl works as well.
