Redminer is a commandline interface to the Redmine API. The Redmine API is limited in scope, and so is this tool.
I needed an easy way to post time entries to Redmine.
Redminer is held together with spit and baling wire. It works for me, but I don't like it. I recommend against adopting it at this time.
Nevertheless, if you're looking for a commandline interface to Redmine, here you go.
- List recent time entries
- Search back a bit to find recent time entries owned by you
- Add a new time entry
- List your user info
- List projects
- List issues
- Fetch issue by id -- useful for making sure you've got the right id when you go to add time to it.
Redminer depends on the OS X keychain for storage of your login info, and on your sufferance for its continued existence. It begs a thousand pardons that it should be so ugly and yet live.
Add a new Internet password named "redmine" with the correct host. Add "api: <yourkey>" to the comments field.
Choose File > New Password, or just hit Cmd-N.
- First field is the web address of your Redmine host (include the http:// or https:// part).
- Second field is your Redmine username.
- Third field is your Redmine account password.
- Now add the password entry to the Keychain using the button in the lower right.
Now double-click to edit the password:
- Change the name to just "redmine".
- In the Comments field, put "api: 1234…abcd", replacing the part after "api: " with your API key.
- Non-fugly user interface. (YAML hash dump? Really?)
- An actual user interface supporting flags and some flexibility, not one that barely works.
- Custom printers for issues and such. Leave dumping the whole object tree to
--debugor something like that.
- Maybe expose some more of the Redmine API. Maybe.
