Countdown to a date.

Project description


Countdown to a date.

This package is a simple command line app for counting down (in days) to
a date. Call ``hmt`` at any time to see the days remaining for all added

For example:


$ hmt -a 2018-09-20 Birthday
Date added.
$ hmt
Birthday 2018-09-20: 118 days (2832 hours) remaining.


Install with:


$ pip install howmuchtime

*If hmt is not installed as a script, try re-installing with* ``sudo pip install howmuchtime``


Add a date to countdown to with:


$ hmt -a <YYYY-MM-DD> <optional name>

If you no longer want the countdown to a date, remove it with:


$ hmt -r <YYYY-MM-DD>
$ # or using a name
$ hmt -r <name>

Finally, to view the countdown, just call hmt:


$ hmt
