SYNOPSIS ^

    > yt help

DESCRIPTION ^

YamlTime is an application that allows you do your personal project time tracking from the command line. It saves your data in plain text YAML files. You can use a version control system (like git) to back up the data.

YamlTime can supports multiple customers, multiple projects and multiple rates. It has reporting, spreadsheets, tagging, time/tag selection and 3rd party plugin modules.

YamlTime comes with a command line app called yt that does everything.

COMMAND LINE USAGE ^

The following commands are supported.

    yt                  - Show current yt status of today's tasks
    yt help             - Get help
    yt help <command>   - Get help for a specific command
    yt init             - Create a new YamlTime store
    yt new              - Start a new task
    yt stop             - Stop the current task
    yt go               - Restart the current task
    yt create <task>    - Create a new task for a specific date/time
    yt edit <task>      - Edit a task's yaml file in $EDITOR
    yt dump <task>      - Read a task file and print to STDOUT
    yt delete <task>    - Delete a task file
    yt check <tasks>    - Check the data in the range for errors
    yt status <tasks>   - Show the current yt status
    yt report <tasks>   - Create a report for a time period
                          using a certain reporting style

The <yt new> command will prompt you for some information. You can use tab completion for many of the fields. The values that you put in your config files are the values that are offered (and the only ones you can use).

Some of the fields may be left blank. You can use yt edit to fix up any task, later on.

Options

yt commands have the following options:

--from=<date_string>

Commands that need a time range, use this to set the start time. The default is the previous midnight. A human friendly string can be used, like: '3 days ago'.

--to=<date_string>

Commands that need a time range, use this to set the end time. The default is now.

--tag=<tag_list>

A comma separated list of tags. Matches tasks the match all the tags. You can specify more than once to combine ('or' logig) groups.

--style=<report-style>

This names a YamlTime reporting style. The default is CSV, which can be used as a spreadsheet.
