A simple command line script to publish to iDoneThis

Project description

pydidit is a command line tool to post to iDoneThis service


to install just run:

sudo pip install pydidit

This will install didit script to your path.


pydidit uses environment variables to configure the default behaviour.

You can add the following lines to your .bashrc or .zshrc shell initialization scripts:

export DIDIT_API_TOKEN=<my_idonethis_api_tag>
export DIDIT_TEAM=<my_team>

To post your progress you have several options:

  • putting your progress as an argument like:

    didit I can now post progress using a simple command line tool

    or like:

    didit 'I can now post progress! With simple command line tool!'
  • running didit without parameters will open an editor where you can enter your progress. This has an advantage, that it makes it much easier to enter multiline texts


  • Enable showing and/or editing the last post
