A time tracking tool for git repos

Project description

Hourly

Hourly is a command-line time tracking tool for git projects. Hourly parses your commit messages for clock-in and clock-out keywords to precisely estimate work hours. Designed for developers and project managers, hourly makes it easy to see how and where you spend your time. When configured with Stripe or BTCPay, hourly can generate invoices for your specified wage.

Usage

Work sessions

To clock in:

hourly-in

The above command updates the header of your work log (WorkLog.md by default) and commits it with the message "clock-in".

Stage any changes to your code base. When you are ready to commit:

hourly commit.message="my commit message"

Hourly updates the work log with your commit message. Feel free to use the work log to provide additional context. When you are finished committing other work for this session, you may clock out:

hourly-out

Again, hourly updates the work log and commits it with the message "clock-out" along with any other staged files. Read more about configuring your work log.

Timesheets

When you are ready to generate a timesheet for your repo, run hourly from your git directory:

hourly-report

Hourly parses all the commit messages for clock in/out keywords and uses git's timestamps to determine how long each session lasted.

For example, here's what happens when you run hourly on the hourly repo itself:

hourly-report repo.start_date="2018-10-21" repo.end_date="2019-3-10" repo.ignore="pro bono"

pay period: 2018-10-28 13:44:48-04:00 -> 2019-02-25 12:49:51-05:00
ignoring pro bono
                     TimeIn           LogIn                   TimeOut          LogOut TimeDelta     Hours
0 2018-10-28 13:44:48-04:00        clock in 2018-10-28 13:56:35-04:00       clock out  00:11:47  0.196389
1 2019-02-25 10:19:10-05:00  clock in T-1hr 2019-02-25 12:49:51-05:00  clock out T-5m  02:30:41  2.511389
0 days 02:42:28, 2.71 hours worked

To save the timesheet as a csv file, include an ouput prefix:

hourly-report repo.start_date="2018-10-21" repo.end_date="2019-3-10" repo.ignore="pro bono" report.filename=Pembroke
pay period: 2018-10-28 13:44:48-04:00 -> 2019-02-25 12:49:51-05:00
ignoring pro bono
                     TimeIn           LogIn                   TimeOut          LogOut TimeDelta     Hours

Invoicing

To generate an invoice using stripe:

hourly-report invoice=stripe repo.start_date="Jan 1, 2020" stripe.customer.email=myclient@momandpop.com

The above command generates a time sheet for this repo, calculates earnings, prepares a stripe invoice, and asks you to confirm details. After confirmation, an email will be sent from your Stripe account to myclient@momandpop.com.

The btcpay invoicing is similar:

hourly-report invoice=btcpay repo.start_date="Jan 1, 2020"

After confirmation, hourly tells your btcpay server to generate an invoice and displays the corresponding payment url. Note that BTCPay can be configured for lightning, so streaming payments are possible!

Visit the Payments section for more info.

Getting Started

Hourly is hosted on github under the Apache 2.0 license

https://github.com/asherp/hourly

Install

pip install hourly --upgrade

Requirements

You can get these dependencies like this:

pip install pandas gitpython plotly
pip install hydra-core --upgrade

For invoicing:

pip install btcpay-python
pip install stripe

For hourly's docs:

pip install mkdocs mkdocs-material markdown-include mknotebooks

Tests

For integration tests, hourly may be tested against the hourly repo.

Unit tests are based on pytest suite with pytest-cov

pip install pytest pytest-cov

To run the tests, navigate to the base of this repo, then

py.test tests.py --cov=hourly

Configuration

Hourly uses Hydra for customized configuration. The full options are given by hourly's help command:

hourly --help
A simple hour tracker for git projects

This application helps users clock in and out of git repos,
as well as generate timesheets for invoicing.

Hourly's default configuration including comments can be seen here.
{! hourly/cli/conf/hourly.yaml !}

Each of these can be overridden at runtime. For example,

hourly commit.clock=in vis=null report.timesheet=False

This will update the WorkLog.md file and commit a clock-in message without visualizing or printing the timesheet.

!!! note hourly-in is just syntactic sugar for hourly commit.clock=in vis=null report.timesheet=False.

But if we want to override hourly's defaults without typing them in each time, we can specify an hourly.yaml file in our git repo. Hourly will look for this file (via the config_override option) and override its default configuration.

!!! bug Your project's config_override will even override command line arguments!

An example of a custom override file is found in the top-level of the hourly repo:

{! hourly.yaml !}

A common use case would be permanently overriding the filename of the work_log you are committing against, to avoid merge conflicts if multiple developers are working on the same project.
