Timetrap

Sam Goldstein just created a neat little gem called Timetrap, a simple tool to help you track time right on the command line. Once you install the gem on your machine, Timetrap will keep track of a list of timesheets. Each timesheet has many entries, and you can check in-and-out of a timesheet as you need to. After you’ve created some entries in your timesheet, you can display the entries, showing information like the date, time in and out, duration, and notes, all right there in your console. Timetrap has built-in support for 6 output formats, including text, csv, ical, json, and ids. There’s even an interface for writing custom formats.
