Pomodoro plugin for Xfce4 panel

This bash script uses xfce4-genmon-plugin and libnotify to create a simple Pomodoro timer for Xfce4 panel. After xfce4-genmon-plugin is added to the panel - it should point to the script

To configure parameters please go to and configure:

size - Icon size in pixels

pomodoro_time - Time for the pomodoro cycle (in minutes)

short_break_time - Time for the short break cycle (in minutes)

long_break_time - Time for the long break cycle (in minutes)

cycles_between_long_breaks - How many cycles should we do before long break

notify_time - Time for notifcation to hang (in seconds)

The icons are stolen form

Instructions for XUbuntu (and probably other XFCE from the family)

  11. Stop procrastinating and start working :)

Happy Pomodoro !!
