CLI time tracking software indented for use with JIRA
This is some time/task tracking software. It can talk (barely) to/at JIRA and Freshdesk. 🐑 PLEASELIKEANDSUBSCRIBE
Install from pypi with pip. Like
sudo python3 -m pip install impetuous or
python3 -m pip install --user impetuous or something.
Clone the source code and install with
python3 -m pip install --user -e .[jira,freshdesk]. If you want. You don’t have to. I’m not the police.
The data is stored in a sqlite3 database at
~/.local/share/impetuous/data.sqlite. This can be overridden by setting
To start doing something, run
im doing something. Once you’re not doing anything anymore, run it again but doing tell it what you’re doing;
im doing. If you start doing something and you’re already doing a thing, it’ll try to stop the thing you’re doing before starting the new one. You can use
-w to specify the date and/or time you’re starting the thing.
im show will list time entries. It uses
--until to filter on entries to show. By default, that range is today. Sometimes it’s nice to look at yesterday, so you can pass
--yesterday for that. You can provide
-y multiple times to keep going back. These time range options should be given after
im and before the action (such as
--yesterday works by moving back the dates (given and default) for
Many actions can do dry runs with
When all else fails, use
im edit to open a YAML representation of your time entries in
im show, this only shows entries filtered by
im post will post your time entries to an external service you have configured. The responses are saved in the database, so impetuous will remember the result and won’t double-post if you run
im post again.
Configuration and JIRA and Freshdesk
Edit the configuration by running
im config-edit, which just opens the configuration file in
EDITOR. This is an example
[jira] api = jira server = https://funkymonkey.atlassian.net basic_auth = admin:hunter2 pattern = ((?:FOO-\d+)|(?:BAR-\d+)) [freshdesk] api = freshdesk server = https://funkymonkey.freshdesk.com api_key = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx pattern = freshdesk (\d+) name = sheepdesk abbr = 🐑
The section names are written into the database and used to track entry postings. If you change the section names, it’ll mess everything up. So don’t do it.
Each section defines an external service for logging time against. The
api determines how we can talk to it. You can add multiple sections and
call them whatever you want.
By default, the name and abbreviated name are taken from the section name, but you can set them as shown in the “freshdesk” section above.
Encoding Config Passwords
You can use im encode to get impetuous to encode your passwords in the configuration file. Then it decodes them when it uses them. It supports a few different encodings. You can encode it multiple times. I don’t know why you want to use this. But it’s there now.
This project does not follow semantic versioning yet as it doesn’t have anything considered to have a public API. The version numbers are entirely arbitrary and meaningless, just like everything else in life.
Oh man, I don’t know. Just run
python3 -m pytest and hope for the best I suppose.
Internationalization / Localization
python3 setup.py extract_messages
python3 setup.py update_catalog -l fr
- Modify the translation file ending in
.po… if you want
python3 setup.py compile_catalog
- Run with
You actually only need to do step 4 and 5 to run the program with localization if you don’t want to make modifications.
