GTK tool to popup an alarm message and play a sound after a configurable time

Description

The main design goal was to create a small and fast starting CLI tool which doesn't require any configuration. Instead you just start the tool with as few characters as possible.

Usage

popup after 5 minutes:

# ga 5

…with a message:

# ga 5m tea is ready

…at a fixed time:

# ga @12 dont forget the call

You can also pause/resume or cancel the alarms.

Dependencies

  • GTK+ 2.12 or higher
  • GLIB 2.14 or higher
  • libnotify 0.3.2 or higher to trigger the notification popup
  • Optional: libcanberra 0.10 or higher for the event sound

…and a running notification-daemon to show popups

TODOs

Options:

- stopall (stop ALL timers)
- pauseall (pause ALL timers)
- resumeall …
  • recognize several running timers → collapse them

    • -c (dont collapse) or something like this
  • add option to specify popup-urgency

  • when activating the tray icon show a countdown window

  • Internationalisation

    • 24h/12h format (configurable, dependent on locale)
  • option to just count the time while beeing "online" so the time during suspend-to-ram eg. isn't counted

  • avoid gettimeofday()

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
