A countdown timer extension for Alfred.app

A simple countdown timer command for Alfred.app that uses Mountain Lion User Notifications.

Demo screenshot

The extension is described in closer detail on my blog.

Benefits

  • Helps you make great tea.
  • Solves your Pomodoro needs.
  • Uses Mountain Lion's User Notifications to tell you when time's up.
  • Plays a non-intrusive alarm sound.
  • Allows you to run multiple timers at the same time.
  • Allows you to add an optional label to the timer, e.g. "Laundry is done!". Thanks to Alexander Lehmann for the suggestion.
  • Shows you how to write Alfred extensions in Python.

Installation

Depending on whether you're running Alfred 1 or Alfred 2 you need different versions of the extension. Please also note that this extension / workflow requires OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) or greater to work.
