Redmine2mite, a plugin to connect web-based project management with time tracking

Redmine2mite: bugtracking meets time tracking

Hear hear, Redmine users! Thanks to a plugin developed by Thomas Klein, time entries tracked on issues within Redmine can now be sent automatically to your mite.account.

Redmine projects might be bundled with mite.projects. For each project in Redmine, you might specify which mite.services should be selectable. Furthermore, dynamic comments are available: you can specify if information such as the title or the ID of a ticket should be added to the notes of your time entries.


Redmine2mite makes use of our open API. To setup the connection, you’ll have to activate the mite.api within your account first. You’ll find this option by clicking on your user name in the upper right-hand corner in mite. Please activate the corresponsing checkbox there, copy your API key and save your changes.

Having installed Redmine2mite successfully, you’ll find a new link in the upper right-hand corner within Redmine, labeled »mite«. There, you’ll have to specify your login credentials from mite (login & API key). Once your Redmine account is connected with mite, you might specify how projects should be bundled as well as which services should be available on a per project basis.


Please head over to GitHub to get the latest version of Redmine2mite. Thomas Klein who developed the plugin published it under the free MIT license. Help yourself, grab it, fork it, improve it! And please don’t forget to get in touch with Thomas if you’re missing anything or simply want to give props.

This absolutely made my day! Awesome… \o/

all cool, but what about client app in the tray with the ability to track time for redmine and mite, with idle function.

Julia on Feb 16, 2010 at 10:00

@Alex: This idea sounds pretty cool indeed! We have to add though that we don’t have any plans at the moment to add features/clients to those integrations with the ticketing systems ourselves.

But, are you a developer? If so, you might want to have a look at our API and hack something by yourself? That’d be gorgeous! Redmine2mite is published under a Open Source licence, so please go ahead, and build something on top of it to enhance it.

yes, but i need desktop app too, and that is not free at all (as far as i can understand)
So maybe i’ll get new app.. we’ll see

Hallo Julia,

leider wird ihr Modul nicht mehr unter Redmine 2.x unterstützt. Es wäre sehr gut, wenn ihr das fixen würdet.



Julia on Nov 12, 2012 at 14:14

@Sergej: Thomas, der Entwickler, plant eine Unterstützung auch von Redmine 2.×. Wir werden das gerne unterstützen, aber sicher. Falls dir die Zeit wegerennt: das Plugin ist OpenSource, vielleicht wärst du bereit zu helfen?

mich würde interessieren bis wann eine zu Redmine 2.1 kompatible Version zur Verfügung steht? Müsste in den nächsten Tagen entscheiden ob wir demnächst euer mite verwenden.

Welche Redmine/Ruby Version ist eigentlich zu dem aktuellen Redmine2mite Plugin 1.6 kompatibel?

endlich steht mein redmine, nun soll mite rein :-)
Ist euch bekannt, wenn das Plugin mit redmine 2.1.x laufen wird? grüße

Julia on Jan 21, 2013 at 18:06


Seit einigen Tagen steht eine aktualisierte Version von Redmine2mite parat, die auch Redmine>=2.0 unterstützt.

Sascha Silbermann on Jan 7, 2016 at 11:03


das Plugin unterstützt derzeit nicht die Redmine Version 3.×. Wird es dazu ein Update geben?

Beste Grüße
Sascha S.

Julia on Jan 7, 2016 at 11:07

@Sascha S.: Aktuell wissen wir leider noch von keinen konkreten Update-Plänen von Thomas. Aber das Plugin ist ja OpenSource. Vielleicht wärst du dazu bereit, oder andere Entwickler*innen, das Projekt zu unterstützen und mit Hand anzulegen?

Got something to add?
