Why did I make it?

I want to work regardless of when and where. So, I needed to calculate my working time.

My first try was toggle-style program. I felt that it is demanding tool. because users have to click button every time the work starts or ends.

And the next try was kimmobrunfeldt's git-hours. Mechanism of kimmobrunfeldt's git-hours looked reasonable to me. However, When I tried to install via it didn't work well on my computer because of the node.js dependency.

So, I revised kimmobrunfeldt's git-hours with Go language. Also, while I was revising it, I added some features that help to create an estimate sheet. Git-hours opens to everyone to download and run. Hope it helps those in need.
