TogglPy

Latest PyPI version

TogglPy is a python library for interacting with the Toggl API.

Features

  • Make requests against any (Toggl) API endpoint with request data as a dictionary
  • Generate and save PDFs of summary, weekly, or detailed reports
  • Fetch reports as JSON
  • Get all workspaces or all clients
  • Get a specific workspace or client, by id or name
  • Query projects, by client, or by a single name
  • Add custom time entries

Setup

  • Install the project with pip:
pip install -U TogglPy
  • Import the content:
from toggl.TogglPy import Toggl
  • Create a Toggl object:
toggl = Toggl()
toggl.setAuthCredentials('<EMAIL>', '<PASSWORD>') 

OR:

toggl.setAPIKey('<API-TOKEN>') 

I learn best by examples:

Manual GET requests against any Toggl endpoint:

from toggl.TogglPy import Toggl

# create a Toggl object and set our API key 
toggl = Toggl()
toggl.setAPIKey("mytogglapikey")

response = toggl.request("https://api.track.toggl.com/api/v8/clients")

# print the client name and id for each client in the response
# list of returned values can be found in the Toggl docs:
# https://github.com/toggl/toggl_api_docs/blob/master/chapters/clients.md
for client in response:
    print "Client name: %s  Client id: %s" % (client['name'], client['id'])

Or, if you want to add some data to your request:

data = {
    'id': 42,
    'some_key': 'some_value',
    'user_agent': 'TogglPy_test',
}   
response = toggl.request("https://api.track.toggl.com/api/v8/some/endpoint", parameters=data)

Making a POST request to any Toggl endpoint:


data = { 
    "project": 
        { 
            "name": "some project", 
            "wid":777, 
            "template_id":10237, 
            "is_private":true, 
            "cid":123397 
        }
    }

response = toggl.postRequest("https://api.track.toggl.com/api/v8/projects", parameters=data)

Generating PDF reports:

Must authenticate with your personal API token to use these endpoints.

# specify that we want reports from this week
data = {
    'workspace_id': 0000, # see the next example for getting a workspace id
    'since': '2015-04-27',
    'until': '2015-05-03',
}

# download one of each type of report for this time period
toggl.getWeeklyReportPDF(data, "weekly-report.pdf")
toggl.getDetailedReportPDF(data, "detailed-report.pdf")
toggl.getSummaryReportPDF(data, "summary-report.pdf")

Finding workspaces and clients

This will print some raw data that will give you all the info you need to identify clients and workspaces quickly:

print toggl.getWorkspaces()
print toggl.getClients()

If you want to clean it up a little replace those print statements with

for workspace in toggl.getWorkspaces():
    print "Workspace name: %s\tWorkspace id:%s" % (workspace['name'], workspace['id'])
for client in toggl.getClients():
    print "Client name: %s\tClient id:%s" % (client['name'], client['id'])

If you want to find a specific client or workspace:

john_doe = toggl.getClient(name="John Doe")
personal = toggl.getWorkspace(name="Personal")

print "John's client id is %s" % john_doe['id']
print "The workspace id for 'Personal' is %s" % personal['id']

The reverse can also be done; use .getClient(id=0000) or .getWorkspace(id=000) to find items by id.

Starting New Timer

# You can get your project pid in toggl.com->Projects->(select your project)
# and copying the last number of the url
myprojectpid = 10959693
toggl.startTimeEntry("my description", myprojectpid)

Stopping Current Timer

currentTimer = currentRunningTimeEntry()
stopTimeEntry(currentTimer['data']['id'])

Creating a custom time entry

# Create a custom entry for today, of a 9 hour duration, starting at 10 AM:
toggl.createTimeEntry(hourduration=9, projectname='GoogleDrive', hour=10)

# Or speed up the query process and provide the clien't name:
toggl.createTimeEntry(hourduration=9, projectname='GoogleDrive', clientname='Google', hour=10)

# Provide *month* and/or *day* too for specific dates:
toggl.createTimeEntry(hourduration=9, projectname='GoogleDrive', clientname='Google', month=1, day=31, hour=10)

# Automate missing time entries!
for day in (29, 30, 31):
    toggl.createTimeEntry(hourduration=9, projectname='someproject', day=day, hour=10)

Automate daily records

# toggle_entry.py
import datetime
if datetime.datetime.today().weekday() not in (4, 5):
    toggl.createTimeEntry(hourduration=9, projectname='someproject', hour=10)

Add your daily records as a cron job:

(crontab -l ; echo "0 22 * * * toggl_entry.py")| crontab -
