Jogger 🏃🏼‍♀️

An nCurses based application for logging time to Jira tickets. Because time logging has far too much friction and I get in far too much trouble for not doing it. Jogger


This package relies on ncurses and therefore probably only works on Windows under WSL.


sudo apt install -y build-essential pkg-config libssl-dev libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev
cargo install jogger
