Simple time tracking for simple people

Project Description

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.

Requirements

rdial’s dependencies outside of the standard library are:

It should work with any version of Python 3.5 or newer. If rdial doesn’t work with the version of Python you have installed, file an issue and I’ll endeavour to fix it.

The module has been tested on many UNIX-like systems, including Linux and OS X, but it should work fine on other systems too.

To run the tests you’ll need pytest. Once you have pytest installed you can run the tests with the following commands:

$ pytest tests

Database

The database is just a directory of simple text files, making it very easy 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:

start,delta,message
2011-05-04T09:15:00Z,PT00H15M00S

The format is a CSV file containing the following fields:

  1. Start time expressed in UTC
  2. Task duration
  3. 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 currently running.

Interface

$ rdial start <task_name>
$ rdial stop
$ rdial report
+-------+----------------+
| task  | time           |
+-------+----------------+
| task  |        1:00:00 |
| task2 | 1 day, 0:15:00 |
+-------+----------------+
