TLDR

Don't use ; in descriptions, it starts a comment.

./hledger-time-report.hs --start 01/11 --end 01/18 > report.csv
./meetings.sh 01/01 01/11
# check monthly summary:
hledger print -f timekeeping.journal -b 2020/02/7 -e 2020/03/25 | hledger -f- b Report

Quick command reference

Projects balance

hledger -f timekeeping.journal b          # <- this does both
hledger -f timekeeping.journal b project
hledger -f timekeeping.journal b unbilled

Filter by active accounts

hledger -f timekeeping.journal b $ACTIVE_CAC_ENTRIES
hledger -f timekeeping.journal b $ACTIVE_CAC_PROJECTS

Sort entries by date (juse use print)

hledger -f timekeeping.journal print

Date range

Retrieve entries in a particular range, starting at -b and ending before -e:

hledger -f timekeeping.journal print -b 2020/01/07 -e 2020/01/08

List collaborative meetings

hledger print -b 2020/01/06 -e 2020/01/08 | hledger -f timekeeping.journal print tag:collab-meeting

or just do meetings.sh 01/06 01/08.

Output to CSV file

These methods also remove any comments after the description.

stdout:

hledger register -f timekeeping.journal Misc -O csv

Directly to a file:

hledger register -f timekeeping.journal Misc -o foo.csv

Pull entries for a particular report as CSV

This combines queries and CSV output:

hledger print -b 2020/01/06 -e 2020/01/08 | hledger register -f- Misc -O csv

Billing

We send out a bill about once per week:

  1. Create a summary description using the date filter
  2. Bill for x = floor(current balance):
Last/Day/Of/Report
  Billed                  x
  Project                -x
  

The current balance for a project can be obtained like:

hledger -f timekeeping.journal b -N --format "%(total)" Metajelo

Week-to-week carry-over

Note this shouldn't be needed using the billing method outlined above.

Ideally generate these entries automatically as a script:

Given an amount x held-over (due to not being an integer),

we first give that time back to the project to make it an integer:

Last/Day/Of/Previous/Report  ; NONINT: hold-returned:
  Project                -x
  Time                    x
  

Then we give time back to that project

First/Day/Of/Next/Report  ; NONINT: hold-taken:
  Project                 x
  Time                   -x
  

After looking at the Transaction type, it is probably easier to generate these without using the hledger API.

Rewrite account names

Importing values

To avoid balancing a transaction, enclose the account in (). However, this is probably not a good idea, better to keep things in balance; instead, use two accounts Time, for the journal's current time spent, and PriorTime, for time imported from a previous journal.

End-of-year closing

See hledger close, or synonymously: hledger-equity.hs (hledger equity). But note: simonmichael/hledger#1165
