Kimai for mobile

jQuery mobile time tracking frontend for Kimai, optimized for usage on mobile devices

.zip file

Its a small website that lets you start and stop your time record from mobile devices.

It is built with jQuery Mobile support and works as a developer demonstration for the Kimai Remote API. For now its has the following features:

  • log in
  • read projects
  • read customers
  • read tasks
  • start the timer
  • stop the timer

Its a very lightweight solution made with only one HTML script, a couple of Javascript files and some spicy CSS sugar on top.

Please note, that this is ONLY a experimental release and many features of the complete version are missing. We don’t have plans to add more features, but we’d like to hear your thoughts,feature requests at the issue tracker and especially pull requests from frontend developers.


To install this mobile interface:

  • copy all the files into a sub-directory of your Kimai installation (e.g. mobile/)
  • point your browser to
  • log in with your existing Kimai account


This mobile time tracking solution only works with Kimai revision 1353 and later.
