NAME ^

App::TimelogTxt - Commandline tracking of time for tasks and projects.

VERSION ^

This document describes App::TimelogTxt version 0.12

SYNOPSIS ^

    use App::TimelogTxt;
    App::TimelogTxt::run();

DESCRIPTION ^

This module encapsulates all of the functionality of the timelog application. This module delegates much of the heavy lifting to other modules. It does handle the UI work and the configuration file.

INTERFACE ^

At the moment, the only real interface to this file is the run command.

In the methods below, the $app parameter is an object of the class Timelog::CmdDispatch. This is a subclass of App::CmdDispatch that adds support needed for some of our configuration.

run()

This is the main routine of the module. It creates the command parser object, parses the command line and dispatches the work to the correct function.

init_timelog( $app, $dir )

Implementation of the 'init' command.

This routine creates the log directory if the directory doesn't exist. The optional $dir argument is the path to this directory. If $dir is not provided, use the default ~/timelog directory. If the configuration file doesn't exist, it creates that as well using the currently known values.

log_event( $app, @event );

Add the specified event to the end of timelog.txt

edit_logfile( $app )

Implementation of the 'edit' command.

Open the timelog.txt file in the configured editor.

list_events( $app, $day )

Implementation of the 'ls' command.

Display the events for the supplied $day. If no $day is supplied, use today.

list_projects( $app )

Implementation of the 'lsproj' command.

Extract all +project entries from the events in timelog.txt and display a sorted list, one per line.

daily_report( $app, $day, $end_day )

Implementation of the 'report' command.

Display a report of all events for the given days on STDOUT. If $end_day is not supplied, only display the report for $day. If $day is not supplied, default to today.

daily_summary( $app, $day, $end_day )

Implementation of the 'summary' command.

Display a report of all project times for the given days on STDOUT. If $end_day is not supplied, only display the report for $day. If $day is not supplied, default to today.

report_hours( $app, $day, $end_day )

Implementation of the 'hours' command.

Display a report of the hours the given days on STDOUT. If $end_day is not supplied, only display the report for $day. If $day is not supplied, default to today.

extract_day_tasks( $app, $day, $end_day )

Read the timelog.txt file and create an array of App::TimelogTxt::Day objects that contain the information for the days from $day to $end_day.

start_event( $app, @event )

Implementation of the 'start' command.

Add an event to the timelog.txt file.

push_event( $app, @event )

Implementation of the 'push' command.

Copy the current item from the timelog file to the stack and add the supplied event to the timelog file.

pop_event( $app )

Implementation of the 'pop' command.

Remove the most recent event from the stack and add it as a new event to the timelog file.

drop_event( $app, $arg )

Implementation of the 'drop' command.

Remove one or more items from the stack. If $arg is not supplied, remove one item. If $arg is a positive number, remove that many items from the stack. If $arg is 'all', clear the stack file.

list_stack( $app )

Implementation of the 'lstk' command.

Print the current stack on STDOUT.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

App::TimelogTxt requires no environment variables, but may use VISUAL or EDITOR if an editor is not configured in ~/.timelogrc.

App::TimelogTxt uses the file ~/.timelogrc for configuration information.

The configuration file is expected to contain data in two major parts:

General Configuration

The first section defined general configuration information in a key=value format. The recognized keys are:

editor

The editor to use when opening the timelog file with the edit command. If not specified, it will use the value of either the VISUAL or EDITOR environment variables. If non are found, it will default to vim.

dir

The directory in which to find the timelog data files. Defaults to the timelog directory in the user's home directory.

defcmd

The default command to by used if none is supplied to timelog. By default, this is the 'stop' command.

Command Aliases

The config file may also contain an '[alias]' section that defines command aliases. Each alias is defined as a shortname=expanded string

For example, if you regularly need to make entries for reading email and triaging bug reports you might want the following in your configuration.

  [alias]
    email = start +Misc @Email
    triage = start +BugTracker @Triage

DEPENDENCIES ^

App::CmdDispatch, Getopt::Long, File::Path, autodie.

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.
