# como: batteries complete
[`como`](https://github.com/cwoebker/como) is a minimalistic utillity to monitor your battery.
## Naming ##
The answer is simple: Alessandro Volta grew up in the town of [Como](https://maps.google.com/maps/place?ftid=0x47869c481027ed63:0xb99b96af785ff524&q=Como+italy&gl=us&ie=UTF8&ll=45.905539,8.869743&spn=0.000239,0.000343&t=h&z=12&vpsrc=0)
and since he invented the battery I thought it would be a great name.

## What is this? ##
With como you can check out how your battery is doing. You can easily `automate` this process so that you don't need to worry about it. Every once in a while you can quickly check out your battery `info`. You can `export` this data into the portable `.csv` format and `import` it again later. You can even import data form another battery utility such as [coconutBattery](http://http://www.coconut-flavour.com).

Most importantly you can take all this to the next level, if you choose to do so. `Upload` your battery data to the como web application to check everything out in a nice interface wherever you are. You can always easily `open` your computer's personal page.
It's as simple as that:
`$ pip install como`
Afterwards run the `init` command to get everything setup and stop worrying.
`$ como init`
`como` - Saves the current battery state.
`como info` - Prints information about battery and battery history.
`como import <file>` - Imports statistics from .csv file (time, capacity, cycles)
`como export` - Exports data to `como.csv` file to current directory.
`como upload` - Uploads data to server.
`como open` - Opens personal battery information page.
`como automate` - Turns scheduling on or off. Saving and Uploading.
`como init` - Quick command to get everything setup on first start.
`como reset` - Removes all entries in database.
`como` stores all battery information (with zlib compression) in the file `~/.como`.
You are free to do whatever you want with the data in that file,
its yours after all.
So go out there and hack some code!
