Commands

add

Usage:  watson add [OPTIONS] [ARGS]...

aggregate

Usage:  watson aggregate [OPTIONS]

Display a report of the time spent on each project aggregated by day.

If a project is given, the time spent on this project is printed. Else, print the total for each root project.

By default, the time spent the last 7 days is printed. This timespan can be controlled with the --from and --to arguments. The dates must have the format YEAR-MONTH-DAY, like: 2014-05-19.

You can limit the report to a project or a tag using the --project and --tag options. They can be specified several times each to add multiple projects or tags to the report.

If you are outputting to the terminal, you can selectively enable a pager through the --pager option.

You can change the output format from plain text to JSON using the --json option or to CSV using the --csv option. Only one of these two options can be used at once.

log

Usage:  watson log [OPTIONS]

Display each recorded session during the given timespan.

By default, the sessions from the last 7 days are printed. This timespan can be controlled with the --from and --to arguments. The dates must have the format YEAR-MONTH-DAY, like: 2014-05-19.

You can also use special shortcut options for easier timespan control: --day sets the log timespan to the current day (beginning at 00:00h) and --year, --month and --week to the current year, month or week respectively. The shortcut --luna sets the timespan to the current moon cycle with the last full moon marking the start of the cycle.

If you are outputting to the terminal, you can selectively enable a pager through the --pager option.

You can limit the log to a project or a tag using the --project and --tag options. They can be specified several times each to add multiple projects or tags to the log.

You can change the output format from plain text to JSON using the --json option or to CSV using the --csv option. Only one of these two options can be used at once.

merge

Usage:  watson merge [OPTIONS] FRAMES_WITH_CONFLICT

Perform a merge of the existing frames with a conflicting frames file.

When storing the frames on a file hosting service, there is the possibility that the frame file goes out-of-sync due to one or more of the connected clients going offline. This can cause the frames to diverge.

If the --force command is specified, the merge operation will automatically be performed.

The only argument is a path to the the conflicting frames file.

Merge will output statistics about the merge operation.

Example:

$ watson merge frames-with-conflicts
120 frames will be left unchanged
12  frames will be merged
3   frame conflicts need to be resolved

To perform a merge operation, the user will be prompted to select the frame they would like to keep.

Example:

$ watson merge frames-with-conflicts --force
120 frames will be left unchanged
12  frames will be merged
3   frame conflicts need to be resolved
Will resolve conflicts:
frame 8804872:
< {
<     "project": "tailordev",
<     "start": "2015-07-28 09:33:33",

report

Usage:  watson report [OPTIONS]

Display a report of the time spent on each project.

If a project is given, the time spent on this project is printed. Else, print the total for each root project.

By default, the time spent the last 7 days is printed. This timespan can be controlled with the --from and --to arguments. The dates must have the format YEAR-MONTH-DAY, like: 2014-05-19.

You can also use special shortcut options for easier timespan control: --day sets the report timespan to the current day (beginning at 00:00h) and --year, --month and --week to the current year, month or week respectively. The shortcut --luna sets the timespan to the current moon cycle with the last full moon marking the start of the cycle.

You can limit the report to a project or a tag using the --project, --tag, --ignore-project and --ignore-tag options. They can be specified several times each to add or ignore multiple projects or tags to the report.

If you are outputting to the terminal, you can selectively enable a pager through the --pager option.

You can change the output format for the report from plain text to JSON using the --json option or to CSV using the --csv option. Only one of these two options can be used at once.

restart

Usage:  watson restart [OPTIONS] [FRAME]

Restart monitoring time for a previously stopped project.

By default, the project from the last frame, which was recorded, is restarted, using the same tags as recorded in that frame. You can specify the frame to use with an integer frame index argument or a frame ID. For example, to restart the second-to-last frame, pass -2 as the frame index.

Normally, if a project is currently started, watson will print an error and do nothing. If you set the configuration option options.stop_on_restart to a true value (1, on, true or yes), the current project, if any, will be stopped before the new frame is started. You can pass the option -s or --stop resp. -S or --no-stop to override the default or configured behaviour.

If no previous frame exists or an invalid frame index or ID was given, an error is printed and no further action taken.

Example:

$ watson start apollo11 +module +brakes
Starting project apollo11 [module, brakes] at 16:34
$ watson stop
Stopping project apollo11, started a minute ago. (id: e7ccd52)
$ watson restart

start

Usage:  watson start [OPTIONS] [ARGS]...

Start monitoring time for the given project. You can add tags indicating more specifically what you are working on with +tag.

If there is already a running project and the configuration option options.stop_on_start is set to a true value (1, on, true or yes), it is stopped before the new project is started.

If the ‘–no-gap’ flag is given, the start time of the new project is set to the stop time of the most recently stopped project.

Example:

$ watson start apollo11 +module +brakes --no-gap
Starting project apollo11 [module, brakes] at 16:34

Options

Flag Help
-g, --gap / -G, --no-gap (Don’t) leave gap between end time of previous project and start time of the current.
-c, --confirm-new-project Confirm addition of new project.
-b, --confirm-new-tag Confirm creation of new tag.
--help Show this message and exit.

status

Usage:  watson status [OPTIONS]

Display when the current project was started and the time spent since.

You can configure how the date and time of when the project was started are displayed by setting options.date_format and options.time_format in the configuration. The syntax of these formatting strings and the supported placeholders are the same as for the strftime method of Python’s datetime.datetime class.

Example:

$ watson status
Project apollo11 [brakes] started seconds ago (2014-05-19 14:32:41+0100)
$ watson config options.date_format %d.%m.%Y
$ watson config options.time_format "at %I:%M %p"

-t, --tags only show tags
-e, --elapsed only show time elapsed
--help Show this message and exit.

stop

Usage:  watson stop [OPTIONS]

Stop monitoring time for the current project.

If ‘–at’ option is given, the provided stopping time is used. The specified time must be after the begin of the to be ended frame and must not be in the future.

Example:

$ watson stop --at 13:37
Stopping project apollo11, started an hour ago and stopped 30 minutes ago. (id: e9ccd52) # noqa: E501

sync

Usage:  watson sync [OPTIONS]

Get the frames from the server and push the new ones.

The URL of the server and the User Token must be defined via the watson config command.
