Draw up wireframes for the whole app, and figure out all of the react companents Design the entire api Consider balsamiq Consider installing Windows

Reasons for making

  • Practice my stack
  • Figure out my process for building things
  • Make the task management system I want myself
  • Potentially sell it if it is useful enough
  • People wanted to be able to use the old tomatoes together again, and it was broken


  • ReactJS/React Native
  • Typescript
  • Browserify
  • Python 3
  • Django/Django Rest Framework
  • Django Channels/ for websocket stuff

Make it so that you can enter your distracting communication website into the app and it will show that site only during the tomato break Slack, Gmail, Hangouts

Free version can be just the tomato timer, and you can create todo lists but not save them other than in local storage Paid version adds todo lists/projects, tagging things, saving how many tomatoes you have done, stats and graphs I want to make the tool that will help me create more apps and maybe it will be helpful to other people too

Make it easy to download your data Make it open source and say if you want to have the full version without paying, you can set it up yourself

This app may also allow me to focus more while working if I put the twitch chat into the system

Use twitch streams for marketing
