A minimalist command line app for life logging.
- Python 2.7
- OSX or Linux
- Basic knowledge of how to use the command line
You can install wid with either pip or easy_install, I like pip:
$ pip install whatidid
You will need to initialize the
~/.widrc file and get your database structure setup before you can use the application.
$ wid init
You can update your updates by using
wid update command:
$ wid update -m "This is my status" -t tag1,tag2,tag3
You can list all of your updates by using the
wid update-show command:
$ wid update-show Monday: This is my status Tuesday: Did something
You can email someone by the
$ wid-update-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: This will be moved into the
wid command soonish.
All of the configuration options live in the
The [storage] category
Defines where the data is stored, this can be any location on the disk your user can write to.
path = /Users/foo/Dropbox/.whatidid
The [formats] category
Defines how the date should be formated from the results of
update-show-format = %m/%d/%Y
On the command line:
$ wid update-show 11/18/2012: Did something 11/19/2012: Did something else
