Basilico is an event handling framework for the Mac OS X Pomodoro application. You can hook it into the application using the Script section of Pomodoro Preferences. More on this below. While being a framework for events, it also provides useful events out of the box.
Basilico runs on MacRuby. Actually the framework itself should run on any Ruby implementation (tests coming soon), but most of the built-in handlers use the
Basilico::AppHelpers module which depends on some OS X frameworks.
Adium, iChat and Skype status and status message
These handlers update your status and status message when starting or ending a pomodoro. Your status will be set to "Do not disturb" or "Away" when starting a pomodoro with "in a Pomodoro" as the status message. Upon ending or resetting the pomodoro your status will be set back to "Online" or "Available" and your status message will be cleared.
The logger event handler logs every event with the current time and all the arguments into the file
Setting up Basilico
You should have MacRuby installed. Then install the basilico gem:
$ gem install basilico
The only thing left is setting up the Pomodoro app to send events to Basilico. You will find example scripts in the
scripts directory of the repository. Open the preferences window of Pomodoro and setup the scripts in the Scripts tab.
The example scripts use rvm. You can simplify them if you have MacRuby installed some other way.
