Early inspiration came from the original CLI utility for Harvest written in Ruby by Zach Hobson, hcl. The CLI is kept lean thanks to the NodeJS-based API for Harvest, harvest by Paul English. Sow focuses on time entry and history. Its aim is to make it easy to do CRUD- like actions on time tracking, and produce some very simple reports all from the CLI. Most commands have a shortcut as well to make usage as fast as possible.
