work_log

Description

A simple time tracker that logs your work times to a file using a command line interface.

Installation

sudo gem install work_log

The work_log command should now be available in your command line interface.

Usage

Currently work_log supports the following arguments:

work_log start    # Log that you started working.
                  # You can pass a starting time in human readable words, e.g.
                  # work_log start two hours ago
                  # Default time is DateTime.now
                  # Shorthand: work_log s

work_log end      # Log that you finished working.
                  # You can also pass a time (see start)
                  # Shorthand: work_log e

work_log all      # List all entries
                  # Shorthand: work_log a

work_log week     # List the entries of the current week
                  # Shorthand: work_log w

work_log last     # Show the last logged entry

work_log since    # Show all entries since a given time, examples:
                  # work_log since yesterday
                  # work_log since 2 weeks ago

work_log undo     # Removes the last entry from the log

Hint: Changing the location of the saved file

Especially interesting in combination with Dropbox to add backup/multiple device sync capabilities to work_log. ;)

Per default, the entries are saved in your home directory:

~/work_log.yml

But you can change location of the saved file by creating a file called .work_log_gem in your home directory.

touch ~/.work_log_gem

And enter the following valid YAML (watch the indentation):

logfile: "/Users/yourUserName/some/other/path/work_log.yml"

Note that this must be the absolute path to the file.
