timezilla

a simple timer for the console/terminal

Version 1.1.0 Build Status Code Climate Issue Count License

how it works

  • the timer will count down from the specified time
  • when the time is up, three things happen:
    1. the terminal screen will flash red on/off
    2. the terminal bell will ring (every 30 seconds)
    3. a desktop notification is sent (only for the following operating systems*) * GNU/Linux using libnotify notify-send
      • copy clock.png into the application directory to display a clock icon in the notification * OS X 10.9+ using AppleScript display notification
  • P to pause
  • CTRL+C to exit

*see notifize package for more information on desktop notification support for other operating systems
