como: batteries complete
como is a minimalistic utillity to monitor your battery.
The answer is simple: Alessandro Volta grew up in the town of Como and since he invented the battery I thought it would be a great name.
What is this?
With como you can check out how your battery is doing. You can easily
automate this process so that you don't need to worry about it. Every once in a while you can quickly check out your battery
info. You can
export this data into the portable
.csv format and
import it again later. You can even import data form another battery utility such as coconutBattery.
Most importantly you can take all this to the next level, if you choose to do so.
Upload your battery data to the como web application to check everything out in a nice interface wherever you are. You can always easily
open your computer's personal page.
It's as simple as that:
$ pip install como
Afterwards run the
init command to get everything setup and stop worrying.
$ como init
como - Saves the current battery state.
como info - Prints information about battery and battery history.
como import <file> - Imports statistics from .csv file (time, capacity, cycles)
como export - Exports data to
como.csv file to current directory.
como upload - Uploads data to server.

como stores all battery information (with zlib compression) in the file
You are free to do whatever you want with the data in that file,
its yours after all.
