PlatinumPitanga

An efficient cli time tracking application.

  • Influenced by git log
  • Storage in a simple log.json file in the current directory
  • Colored syntax
  • Export functionality
  • Two views, individual entries, or a more general overview where tasks are grouped by day.

What problems does this solve?

It adds efficiency to logging time - minimizing keystrokes compared to every other time tracking software I've tried. It adds efficiency to viewing log history.

Examples

Start a task:

$ pitanga start "Demonstrating an example" ""
Started task:
IN PROGRESS
11:07:13 07/03/2020 - ---
00:00:00 
Demonstrating an example - 

Stop a task:

$ pitanga stop
Stopped task:
11:07:13 - 11:07:39
07/03/2020
00:00:25 
Demonstrating an example -

What are the limitations?

  • It saves the data in a single log.json file - so could be deleted by accident? Make frequent backups!
  • No timezone support (everything is done in UTC).

Installation

nix-build -A platinumpitanga.components.exes.pitanga

I think the nix build is broken. Have been using stack instead:

stack build

Workflow

** One word: FZF **

These aliases are highly recommended:

alias ptl="pitanga log --last 5 | less -R"
pts () {
  echo "$#"
  if [[ "$#" = 0 ]]; then
    pitanga start "$(cat tasks.txt | fzf)" ""
  else
    pitanga start "$(cat tasks.txt | fzf)" "$@"
  fi
};
alias ptsp="pitanga stop"
alias ptr="pitanga resume"

I have each "project" in a directory, and within each directory I have a helper tasks.txt file.

For example tasks.txt might have the contents of:

work on abc
investigate xyz
etcxyz
