A Ruby Gem equivalent in functionality to Pymesync ( and a basic Ruby application (using Sinatra or similar basic framework) that provides simple data graphing of times logged byt project, user and activity.

Knowledge Prerequisite:

Ability to program in Ruby, with basic knowledge of Ruby Gem design. Familiarity with Python. Basic application design using a Ruby framework, and some understanding of data visualization/graphing.
