Overview

toggl-cli is a command-line interface for toggl.com.

It certainly does not implement the full toggl API, but rather some core functions. The goal is to make using toggl quicker and more efficient for those already familiar with command-line tools.

toggl-cli is written in Python and uses version 8 of the toggl API (thanks to beauraines for the help).

Latest Update

15 Dec 2014: Thanks to FedericoVaga .togglrc now supports API token authentication. You will need to add api_token to the auth section, and prefer_token to the options section.

11 Nov 2014: Major refactoring into a more MVC OO structure.

30 Oct 2014: Added a feature that starting, stopping, and continuing an entry prints out the time it started or stopped. This requires a new option in ~/.togglrc: time_format = %I:%M%p is the default. See strftime() for more options.

Requirements

  • iso8601 module
  • pytz module
  • requests
  • python-dateutil

Configuration

Upon first running the program, a configuration file ~/.togglrc will be automatically created.

  1. Update that file with your toggl username and password.
  2. Update the timezone entry (e.g. US/Pacific).

####Continue Behaviour####

Setting continue_creates to false will cause continue to continue already existing same-day entries as a duration continuation, rather than create a new entry. continue_creates defaults to false for toggl-cli users where .togglrc already exists, and to true for new users as per the default of the toggl web UI.

Limitations

  • When creating a time entry for a given project, the project must already exist.
  • Project users, tasks, tags, and users aren't supported.
  • Only the default workspace is supported.
