Project description

GTimeLog is a simple app for keeping track of time.

latest version build status test coverage screenshot


GTimeLog is packaged for Debian and Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install gtimelog

For Ubuntu, a newer version can usually be found in the PPA:

You can fetch the latest released version from PyPI

$ pip install gtimelog
$ gtimelog

You can run it from a source checkout without an explicit installation step:

$ git clone
$ cd gtimelog
$ ./gtimelog

System requirements:

  • Python (2.7 or 3.3+)
  • PyGObject
  • gobject-introspection type libraries for GTK+, Pango


This is work in progress:

GTimeLog was mainly written by Marius Gedminas <>.

Barry Warsaw <> stepped in as a co-maintainer when Marius burned out. Then Barry got busy and Marius recovered.

Many excellent contributors are listed in CONTRIBUTORS.rst


0.10.1 (2016-09-22)

  • Fix error on Python 3 when using task_list_url (GH: #92).
  • Fix some PyGIWarnings about unspecified versions on startup.

0.10.0 (2015-09-29)

  • Use Tango colors in the main text buffer (GH: #13).
  • Allow tagging entries (GH: #19)
    • The syntax is category: text -- tag1 tag2
    • Per-tag summaries show up in reports
  • Use GtkApplication instead of own DBus server for enforcing single-instance.
    • Drop –replace, –ignore-dbus command-line options because of this.
    • Require glib and gio to be version 2.40 or newer for sane GtkApplication-based command line parsing (check with pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0 gio-2.0).
  • Remove obsolete code:
    • Drop support for Python 2.6 (PyGObject dropped support for it long ago).
    • Drop PyGtk/Gtk+ 2 support code (it didn’t work since 0.9.1 anyway).
    • Drop EggTrayIcon support (it was for Gtk+ 2 only anyway).
    • Drop the –prefer-pygtk command-line option.
  • Disable tray icon by default for new users (existing gtimelogrc files will be untouched).
  • Improve tray icon selection logic for best contrast (GH: #29).

0.9.3 (2015-09-29)

  • Adding new entries didn’t update total weekly numbers (GH: #28).
