A mite client for the command line

Project description


A CLI interface for time-tracking in Mite. Currently only adding entries and listing projects and services is supported.


You can install mite through pip:

pip install mite-cli


There are four subcommands, init, add, projects, and services.

init adds your profile configuration, so you don’t have to enter it every time. Call it once after installing mite like so:

mite init --team <your mite team name, e.g. portzero> --api-key <your api key>

After setting mite up, you can then use the add command. Right now, this verb seems a little redundant, but there are more subcommands to come, promise!

If you just call mite add, it will do the following:

  • Assume that you want to add an entry for today (change by providing the --date argument)
  • Assume that you want to add an entry for 480 minutes, i.e. 8 hours (change by providing the --minutes argument)
  • Open your favorite editor as determined by the EDITOR system variable so you can type in a note (you can also skip this if you provide a --note argument)
  • Fetch all of your active projects and lets you choose from them (skip this by providing a --project-id argument)
  • Fetch all of your active service and lets you choose from them (skip this by providing a --service-id argument)
  • Tell mite to add that entry and, if you chose a project or service interactively, show you those IDs so you can add them via arguments next time.

If you forget those IDs again, simply type mite projects or mite services to fetch and display a list of projects and services and their IDs.

And that’s it!

Have fun!
