What is Taxi ?
Taxi is a timesheeting tool that focuses on simplicity to help you write your timesheets without wasting time. All you'll do is edit a text file and write down what you've worked on and how long, like so:
23/01/2014 pingpong 09:00-10:00 Play ping-pong infra -11:00 Repair coffee machine
You can then get a summary of your timesheet:
Staging changes : # Thursday 23 january # pingpong (123/456) 1.00 Play ping-pong infra (123/42) 1.00 Repair coffee machine 2.00 Total 2.00 Use `taxi ci` to commit staging changes to the server
The easiest way to install Taxi is by using
pip. This will fetch the latest
stable version and install it on your system:
sudo pip install taxi
You'll mostly want to install a backend as well. Backends allow you to push your timesheets to a remote location. The list of available backends can be found below in :ref:`supported_backends`.
That's it! You should now be able to run
taxi. Head over to the
documentation for a complete guide
on how to use Taxi.
Upgrading to 4.0
Starting with Taxi 4, backends are shipped separately from Taxi itself. This allows you to plug Taxi on whatever backend you're using, or even allows you to use multiple backends in parallel.
The default backend Taxi used in previous versions is the Zebra backend. Since it is now shipped as a separate module, you'll need to install it as well if you're ugrading from a previous version of Taxi:
sudo pip install taxi-zebra
