Timewarrior Database Correction Script

This is the correction script for the interval flattening bug (TI-102). The script exports all intervals stored, purges the database, and re-enters the intervals.

TimeWarrior 1.1.1 or higher correctly enters intervals.

Use this script when you have used

  • TimeWarrior earlier than version 1.1.1
  • Exclusions
If none of the above applies, you probably do not need to run this script.

This script will export your stored intervals, purge your database and re-enter your data such that exclusions will be applied and properly written to the database.

!!! YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO BACKUP YOUR TIMEWARRIOR DATABASE BEFORE PROCEEDING !!!

Running the Correction Script

After making a backup copy of your timewarror data by making a copy of all the files in ~/.timewarrior/data, run this:

$ curl -O https://taskwarrior.org/download/timew-dbcorrection.py
$ python timew-dbcorrection.py
...

The script may run for a few minutes, depending on your machine and your database complexity. It shows a progress bar. Do not kill the script or you will need to restore from your backup.
