Dojotools is intended to help in coding dojo sessions.

Our huge feature list is:

  • Watch a directory for changes and run a user supplied command when a file changes

  • Keep track of the round time (in the simplest way possible)

The only dependency is pygtk (to create the status icon), but if you want notifications, you should also have pynotify installed.

Notifications, will not work very well in Ubuntu, since Canonical’s Notify-OSD does not behave the same way as libnotify does in other linux distributions.

You can revert to the old notification-daemon following instructions in this Ubuntu forums post by gradinaruvasile:

We still need notifications for other platforms.

Another optional dependency is python-firmata if you want to use an Arduino to show the status of your tests using a real, physical semaphore.

If you want to do so, install python-firmata, upload the firmata sketch to your Arduino, and leave it connected to your usb port.

Because of the way we initiate the communication with the Arduino, this will probably not work on Windows for now.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
