This is a simple reporting utility for timeclock, which is a time tracking package for GNU Emacs.

You will use timeclock from GNU Emacs to check in and check out of projects during your workday.

Then at the end of the week you can run timeclock.pl to get a daily report of your work time.


If you haven't changed your Emacs/TimeClock setup, no configuration is needed. The script will read your timelog file from the default location which is ~/.timelog

If you have changed the location of the timelog file (I've placed mine in a Dropbox folder), you can create the file ~/.timeclockrc and define the location of the timelog file there. Example:

 $timelog = "$ENV{HOME}/Dropbox/timelog";

Emacs Integration

You could add the following to you .emacs file to integrate timeclock.pl into Emacs:

 (defun timeclock-show-daily-report()
   "Creates and displays a daily report of timeclock entries."
   (let ((process-connection-type nil)   ; Use a pipe.
         (buffer-name "*timeclock daily report*")
         (script-name "timeclock.pl"))
     (when (get-buffer buffer-name)
         (set-buffer buffer-name)
         (set-buffer-modified-p nil)
     (set-buffer (get-buffer-create buffer-name))
     (start-process command-name buffer-name "perl" "-S" script-name)
     (switch-to-buffer buffer-name)))

And the use M-x timeclock-show-daily-report RET to display the report.
