Simple time tracking for simple people
rdial is a simple way to track the time you spend on tasks. It tracks the name of a task, its start time, its duration and optionally a message… nothing more.
rdial is released under the GPL v3 license.
rdial’s mandatory dependencies outside of the standard library are:
The package has been tested on many UNIX-like systems, including Linux and OS X, but it may work fine on other systems too.
$ pytest tests
The database is just a directory of simple text files, making it useful to use and abuse in other applications. A sample database could be a file named task.csv with the following contents:
start,delta,message 2011-05-04T08:00:00Z,PT01H00M00S,working on issue 4 2011-05-04T09:30:00Z,,
and a task2.csv file with the following contents:
The format is a CSV file containing the following fields:
- Start time expressed in UTC
- Task duration
- Message associated with the event
The start time and duration fields are given as ISO 8601 formatted strings.
If a line does not contain a duration entry, then the task is considered to be running.
$ rdial start <task_name> $ rdial stop $ rdial report +-------+----------------+ | task | time | +-------+----------------+ | task | 1:00:00 | | task2 | 1 day, 0:15:00 | +-------+----------------+
