Dieses Plugin ermöglicht die Zeiterfassung von ChromePlugin Tickets in Kimai.

ChromePlugin to Kimai Bridge

This plugin allows time to be logged from ChromePlugin tickets into a Kimai instance.

  • Allows a Kimai instance to be accessed from a browser pop up
  • Log time attached to specific Trello card or Github issue
  • View time logged against a card or issue


The plugin

Clone the repo into your plugins folder of a Kimai installation (it must be in a folder named ChromePluginBundle:

cd /path/to/kimai
cd var/plugins
clone ChromePluginBundle

Reload the plugins:

cd /path/to/kimai
./bin/console kimai:reload

The chrome extension

Right now it’s not in the chrome store, it will be, but for now there is a packed crx file in the var/plugins/ChromePluginBundle/Resources/ folder. Because the extension needs to access your Kimai instance it has to have the hosts: https://*/* permissions which google (quite correctly) finds very permissive and this holds up getting it into the store.

Get it here.

Set up

This will add a new icon to your chrome extensions. The first time you click it you will launch the options page. Here you must add a URL pointing to the web root of you Kimai server. Save the options and then you can use the extension.

Linking to Trello/Github

Time can be logged directly against a project from a Github issue/project or Trello board.

  1. Navigate to the Github issue/project or Trello board, and open any card.
  2. Activate the extension, the white arrow in a green circle.
  3. The pop up will say it cannot find a project associated with this board.
  4. Copy the ID, e.g. tobybatch_ChromeKimaiBridge
  5. Log into Kimai as an admin and navigate to the project you want to associate with this project.
  6. Edit the project, you will find a field call External Board ID
  7. Enter the board id and save the project.
  8. Return to the github issue/trello card and activate the extension.
  9. Log time and view logged history.

The external board id accepts multiple board references in a comma seperated list.


Dateien kopieren

Extract the ZIP file and upload the included directory and all files to your Kimai installation to the new directory:


The file structure needs to look like this afterwards:

├── ChromePluginBundle
│   ├── ChromePluginBundle.php
|   └ ... more files and directories follow here ...

Cache leeren

After uploading the files, Kimai needs to know about the new plugin. It will be found once the cache was re-built. Call these commands from the Kimai directory:

How to reload Kimai cache

bin/console kimai:reload --env=prod

It is not advised, but in case the above command fails you could try:

rm -r var/cache/prod/*

You might have to set file permissions afterwards:

Adjust file permission

You have to allow PHP (your webserver process) to write to var/ and it subdirectories.

Here is an example for Debian/Ubuntu (to be executed inside the Kimai directory):

chown -R :www-data .
chmod -R g+r .
chmod -R g+rw var/

Test Kimai before executing these commands (they are likely not required in a shared-hosting environment). You probably need to prefix them with sudo and the group might be called different than www-data.


Updating the plugin works exactly like the installation:

  • Delete the directory var/plugins/ChromePluginBundle/
  • Execute all installation steps again:
    • Dateien kopieren
    • Cache leeren
