termdown demo

Usage: termdown [OPTIONS] [TIME]

  Starts a countdown to or from TIME. Example values for TIME:
  10, '1h 5m 30s', '12:00', '2020-01-01', '2020-01-01 14:00 UTC'.

  If TIME is not given, termdown will operate in stopwatch mode
  and count forward.

                           individually with --voice or --exec-cmd (defaults
                           to 3)

                           annunciations (except per-second ones)
  -q, --quit-after N       Quit N seconds after countdown (use with -b or -t)
                           or terminate stopwatch after N seconds
  -s, --no-seconds         Don't show seconds (except for last minute of
                           countdown and first minute of stopwatch)

                           --voice, respectively. For example, to get a
                           callout at five seconds only, use: --exec-cmd "if [
                           '{0}' == '5' ]; then say -v Alex {1}; fi"
