Orgstat is a statistics visualizer tool for org-mode. Given a set of org-mode files (gpg supported), it parses AST, applies modifications such as tag filtering, pruning or selecting a subtree (which yields a report) and generates output using specified params. Currently supported output types are:
- Timeline output: that's a svg image describing what took your time on every day of selected report range.
- Summary output: you specify the template string with
%reportName%in it and it replaces each such occurrence with total hours spent on report. Useful for putting this info into your status bar.
- Block output: that's what you'd expect from default org report generator, though formatting is more similar to one that
treeunix utility provides.
orgstat uses haskell build tool stack. In order to build the project, run
stack build in the project directory.
orgstat is also available on hackage, you can use
cabal install orgstat to get it. If you're using
nix package manager you can find
nixpkgs has effectively everything available on hackage directly.
orgstatExample.yaml configuration file (config is used to parametrize report) and
ξ> stack exec orgstat -- --help ----- OrgStat ------ Usage: orgstat [--version] [--help] [--conf-path FILEPATH] [--debug] [--xdg-open] [--select-output ARG] [--output-dir FILEPATH] Statistic reports visualizer for org-mode Available options: --version Show version --help Show this help text --conf-path FILEPATH Path to the configuration file --debug Enable debug logging --xdg-open Open each report using xdg-open --select-output ARG Output name you want to process (by default all outputs from conf are processed --output-dir FILEPATH Final output directory that overrides one in config. No extra subdirectories will be created!
That's how i use
summary to put things into
# all these reports are defined with range: week and single filterbytag modifier with appropriate tag - name: curWeekStats type: summary template: "%thisWeekWork%/%thisWeekStudy% %thisWeekA1%/%thisWeekA2%/%thisWeekA3% %thisWeekI%/%thisWeekE%"
Then you run
stack exec orgstat -- --select-output resolveOutput --output-dir ~/ and it puts report into
0:57/0:09 2:03/2:48/3:16 1:57/2:34 inside. Add a bit of cron and xmobar task to read the text out of this file. That's it.
Bugs and issues
If you experience any problems with the application, you can use
block output and
--debug to debug yourself (or you can just create an issue).
