Mindful Time Tracking: Simplify Your Focus and Boost Productivity Effortlessly.


pace is a mindful productivity tool designed to help you keep track of your activities with ease and intention.

Born from the desire to blend simplicity with effectiveness, pace offers a command-line interface (CLI) that encourages focused work sessions, thoughtful reflection on task durations, and a harmonious balance between work and rest.

Whether you're a developer, a writer, or anyone who values structured time management, pace provides the framework to log activities, reflect on progress, and optimize how you spend your time.

⚠️ Note: pace is currently in active development and is not yet ready for production use. Expect breaking changes and incomplete features. We encourage you to try it out and provide feedback, but please be aware that it is not yet stable. You can find updates to pace in the CHANGELOG.

Some of the inspiration for pace came from the following projects:

Minimum Rust version policy

This crate's minimum supported rustc version is 1.74.1.

The current policy is that the minimum Rust version required to use this crate can be increased in minor version updates. For example, if crate 1.0 requires Rust 1.20.0, then crate 1.0.z for all values of z will also require Rust 1.20.0 or newer. However, crate 1.y for y > 0 may require a newer minimum version of Rust.

In general, this crate will be conservative with respect to the minimum supported version of Rust.
