Easytimer

A simple timer to remind of things at intervals. Like for example to take a break, or have some more coffee.

After reading recent articles on how sitting all day is bad for you, and that even a 5 minute standing break every hour makes a huge difference, I decided to make myself a very simple timer to remind myself to take breaks.

I am fairly certain this isn't the first of its kind, but it was an interesting project.

Hopefully it will grow over time as I add more features and tweak parts of it.

HOWTO

Launch timer.py (it's a python script, so do what your platform dictates) and then right click the system tray icon. Click setup to set your timer interval and a custom message (if you want). Once setup, right click again and select start - the icon will turn green. To stop the timer right click and select stop. This is not a pause and so the timer is reset when you start it again.

That's about all there is to it.
