Tomaatti Timer

Tomaatti (Finnish for tomato) is a Pomodoro timer 🍅 that makes it easier for anyone to get started with the Pomodoro Technique ® .

What? 😕 Yet another stupid Pomodoro timer?

Hey, it's not stupid at all! 😀. Just don't hesitate - give it a try. I bet, you will like it!

There are not so many projects on GitHub with Pomodoro timers that force you to commit the murder of their authors after several minutes of use. After several days of investigation, I felt like I'm over it and I need something different.

This project was born as the result of my stydying JavaScript and I expect it to grow into a fully-featured product, as my knowledge evolve. I have a more or less clear roadmap of incremental improvements 📈 some of which should make a real difference and stand out 🚀 Tomaatti Timer from the rest of existing Pomodoro timers (yeah, I guess your reaction 😆 :trollface:).

The ultimate goal behind the idea of creating Tomaatti Timer was not "yet another ephemeral Pomodoro timer" but rather a product with usefullness in mind, so that other people would like to use and can easily contribute to.

Getting started

The instructions below will help you to get the copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and/or teating purposes.


  1. git. As you are already using GitHub (aren't you? 😉), I expect you to have git installed on your machine and I also expect that you are familiar with basic git commands and flows. If not, feel free check this guide.
  2. npm. Node.js package manager is used to install, launch, and manage different packages within the project. If you need more info on how to use npm, check this guide.


Open your terminal and execute the following commands:

git clone
cd tomaatti-timer
npm i
npm run styles
npm run serve

Open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:8088.

Bingo! 🎉
