Metrics are a measure of the evolution in time of some aspect of your life. It is often useful to quantify certain aspects of your life, and keep special tabs on it. Metrics allow you to track your weight, your retirement savings, days gone to the gym, miles run, etc.

Each metric contains many entries or records, for example:
Much like projects, metrics are created via the
jupiter metrics-create --metric $smartListKey --name "Metric Name" command. The command is

metric, and must be some nice string with no spaces or funny characters like
It will be used as a reference to the project in other commands.
Metrics have a name. It's the nicely looking counterpart to the key.
Metrics can also have a unit. It adds extra info about what exactly you're recording - weight, currency, the count of an event, etc.
Metrics can also have a collection period. This isn't yet used.
