Sometimes you just need to write something down, so logit.

Project description

Some times you just need to write something down. Since I spend most of my day at the command line anyways, this is just a simple means to accomplish that. Usage is as follows:

  • pip install logit
  • Open a terminal and logit:
>>> logit "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
>>> cat ~/.logit/*.log
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
>>> logit "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore." -s
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore
>>> logit -h
usage: logit [-h] [-s] [-f FILE] message
positional arguments:
  message               The message you want to log.
optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -s, --show            Show the log file after writing to it.
  -f FILE, --file FILE  The file to write to.

By default logit will write a daily log file in the format logit-mm-dd-yyyy.log to your home directory. If you wish to write those files elsewhere, you can set the following environment variable:

  • export LOGIT_LOCATION=’/Users/cgallemore/Dropbox/logit’

Now, the daily log file will be written to the logit folder in your Dropbox folder.
