Pester

Simple, disposable alarms and timers for macOS.

Building Pester

  1. Clone this repository.
  2. cd /path/to/Pester
  3. git submodule update --init --force
  4. Open Pester’s project file (in the Source folder) in Xcode and build.

The Xcode and macOS versions I use to build Pester are mentioned at the bottom of the version history in the Read Me — or Xcode builds them into Pester’s Info.plist — though there should be a reasonable amount of slop. The most common thing to break is Perl dependencies, as macOS tends to include at most 2 versions of Perl. This is one reason why recent versions of Pester no longer support as many macOS versions as they once did (Apple’s free yearly updates, more aggressive deprecation policy, and my vanishing free time don’t help).

Running tests

Pester’s tests cover some trickier bits such as the exception-y deserialization process and interaction of Date::Manip with macOS date formats.

  1. Select Product → Test in Xcode.

Note that testDateCompletionSupportedLocales is expected to fail for some Spanish and Italian relative dates — these appear to be Date::Manip issues (patches welcome!)

Need ideas?

Open Pester to do.ooutline in OmniOutliner — it contains many ideas I haven’t had time to implement. If you don't have OmniOutliner, use this HTML version instead.
