gnotime — GnoTime — a time tracker


gnotime [--display displayname] [--geometry geometry]


GnoTime is a simple combination of a stopwatch, a to-do-list organizer and time-keeping/billing system.

In its simplest mode of operation, as a stopwatch, it simply counts the number of elapsed seconds while the timer is running. Unlike ordinary stopwatches, it will keep a log of each time that the timer was started and stopped. The log, or 'journal', can be annotated with comments, allowing a diary of events to be kept.

GnoTime functions as a billing system by allowing you to assign a value to an hour's worth of time. You can specify overtime, double-overtime rates and fixed flat-fees. Individual chunks of time as 'billable', 'not-billable', 'no-charge', 'hold', and so on.

GnoTime can also be used as a simple to-do list tracker. You can assign an urgency as well as an importance to a given project, assign an estimated start and end date, specify a sizing and a percent-complete value. Clicking on column headings will sort the list in the order of that column.

Custom reports can be created using standard HTML enhanced with embedded Scheme (a LISP -like programming language).
