Pomo

Command-line application for the Pomodoro time management technique.

Description

With Pomo you can add, remove, list, view, and start timing tasks all via the command-line with a simple, slick interface. You are reminded of the remaining time on a task via Growl. These notifications appear half-way, at the 5 minute point, and when the task duration has expired.

Task Selection API

Taken from pomo help:

Most of the subcommands work directly with tasks,
and because of this pomo provides a unified task selection api
shown below which can be used with most of the commands 
(those with [task ...] in their synopsis). 

n          : selects a single task by index : Ex: pomo remove 1
[n ]+      : selects several tasks by index : Ex: pomo remove 2 8 1
n..n       : selects a range of tasks       : Ex: pomo remove 5..9
n..-n      : selects a range of tasks       : Ex: pomo remove 2..-1
first      : selects the first task         : Ex: pomo remove first
last       : selects the last task          : Ex: pomo remove last
complete   : selects complete tasks         : Ex: pomo remove complete
incomplete : selects incomplete tasks       : Ex: pomo remove incomplete
all        : selects all tasks              : Ex: pomo remove all

Examples

View global or command specific help: $ pomo help $ pomo help add $ pomo help remove

Get started by adding a task: $ pomo add "Fix IE stying issues"

And another: $ pomo add "Destroy IE" --description "because IE is terrible"

List your tasks (or use pomo which defaults to pomo list): $ pomo list 0. Fix IE stying issues : 25 minutes 1. Destroy IE : 25 minutes

Start the first task: $ pomo start Started Fix IE stying issues, you have 25 minutes :) (=........................) 24 minutes remaining

Once you have completed the task, list again: $ pomo list ✓ 0. Fix IE stying issues : 25 minutes 1. Destroy IE : 25 minutes

Or take a break: $ pomo break $ pomo break 10 $ pomo break --length 10

List only remaining tasks: $ pomo list --incomplete 1. Destroy IE : 25 minutes

List only completed tasks: $ pomo list --complete ✓ 0. Fix IE stying issues : 25 minutes

At any time mid-task you may terminate pomo via CTRL + C, at which time you may manually complete the task: $ pomo complete first $ pomo complete last $ pomo complete 1 $ pomo complete all $ pomo complete incomplete $ pomo complete 5..7

The next time you run pomo start the first incomplete task will start: $ pomo start

Or choose a specific task: $ pomo start first $ pomo start last $ pomo start 5

You may also remove tasks $ pomo remove first $ pomo remove last $ pomo remove 2 $ pomo remove 1 $ pomo remove 6 $ pomo rm first $ pomo rm 2..5 $ pomo rm 1..-1

View task details: $ pomo view first $ pomo view last $ pomo view 5 $ pomo view 1 2 3

Remove all tasks: $ pomo remove all $ pomo rm all

Or if you prefer, create a directory specific task list. Pomo will auto-detect ./.pomo in this directory, and utilize it's contents. $ pomo init
