Today I made a simple pomodoro time tracker. I spent good two days looking for pomodoro tools that are simple and integrate well into my workflow and existing tools. But I didn’t find what I’m looking for, so I made one myself.
This exercise reminds me that sometimes it’s easier to roll your own solution than find some external tools and figure out how to set them up.
My pomo utility integrates well into tmux status line and other shell scripts. It also comes with a simple monitoring utility that can send notifications to a notification daemon such as dunst. Did I say that it it also works on Mac OS?
