If you’re doing consulting work and/or wanting to keep track of time spent on your todo list items from a command line interface (CLI), look no further than the following two scripts. They are simple to use and have a fair amount of power and flexibility in them. The first is a shell script which tracks your todo items. The second is a Python script which wraps itself around the todo list and give you the ability to punch in and out of the task your working on. Be sure to visit the homepages of each tool to get more information.
