At the end of each day, I find myself crawling through the git logs to record my activities for the day on our timesheet software. It eventually occurred to me that with a few super simple arguments passed to the git log command, I could have a basic output of my timesheet for that day.
Step 1. Edit Your bash_profile file:
$ subl ~/.bash_profile
Step 2. Add an alias to your profile:
git log --oneline --author="`git config --get user.name`" --since='6am'
Step 3. Save your profile
Step 4. Check your daily timesheet:
david:~/Projects/octopress❮source❯$ timesheet 2a08dac Adjust navigation mobile styles and hide search field 816cfef Apply custom style to site b96240c Add Murky-Mussels Theme
Nothing complicated at all, but hopefully someone else finds this as helpful as I did. Thanks to @chris_mccord for adding the user.name snippet to this alias.
