DEPENDENCIES:

- KDE 4.10.1 or later (4.10 has a bug with notifications)

- libdeclarative-multimedia (for debian based distros, including ubuntu, of course)
or
- qtmobility (for Arch)

make sure you have these dependencies installed before add tomatoid to your panel, it may crash your plasma-desktop.

if you still have problems, try to install pulseaudio and ensure it is running: pulseaudio --start


Pomodoro is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down periods of work into 25-minute intervals called 'Pomodoros' (from the Italian word for 'tomatoes') separated by breaks. Closely related to concepts such as timeboxing and iterative and incremental development used in software design. The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility.

Tomatoid is a pomodoro timer for KDE and is written in QML + Javascript

Hello

Currently there is no implementation of Tomatoid for Plasma 5. I am working on it but is is not coming very soon, because I have many things going on right now. But it is coming this year, and I will implement many new things too. I hope to release it in the next 6 months.

Just a question:

There's a way to control the pomodoros by command line?

Report

No,not currently, sorry. I will port tomatoid to plasma 2 once it is released, and if it is possible in the new framework I will add this feature.

I use keyboard shortcuts to navigate between windows and tasks.

Could you add keyboard shortcuts, that are configurabe in KDE's system configuration, to add a task, begin a pomodoro with one task, stop a pomodoro, etc...

It would be great!

Hi. Thanks for your suggestion.

Currently it is not possible for a pure qml plasmoid to add a native kde configuration module for shortcuts or notifications.

If this feature is added to Plasma Next, I'll implement it in Tomatoid too.

Well, this would be very appreciated! In Tomatoid there is no way to use keyboard, even simple tab to change focus from estimated to task name. I'm waiting for full keyboard support.

Sorry for the delay.

The keyboard support is available in the new release

It happens right after you enable the applet?
Did you install the qtmobility package?

Weird.. I am running Arch right now with no problems on Tomatoid.

It may be because the pulseaudio service is not running. Can you try to start it?

pulseaudio --start

Only after installing pulseaudio, did I get it to work.

You need the qt-mobility package installed.

Already have it installed but it keeps crashing my plasma session - I need to remove .kde4/share/config/plasma* in order to have a working Plasma again.

Tomatoid worked fine for me up to 4.10.1, from .2 onwards is impossible to make it run.

I already packaged Tomatoid for Arch and Chakra but I will post a warning to alert users about a possible glitch that may render their Plasma unusable until above mentioned actions are taken.

OTOH I'm a fan of this plasmoid (thank you!) and I would love to help debug this issue as I'm unable to run it in my Chakra 4.10.3 desktop :'(

Thank you for packaging tomatoid. I'll include it in the download options. For the debugging, can you run

plasmoidviewer ~/.kde4/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/tomatoid

And send the output please?

I tried to reproduce the error... The output is the same as yours, but I had no crashes. These 'anchor loops' messages are just warnings, so it's unlikely that this caused the problems.

I am running chakra with kde 4.10.3.

If you know of someone with the same problem please let me know.

Hello Arthur, a fellow archer just reported the same issue:
"On installing first-time and trying to use the widget on KDE 4.10.3, Plasma crashes and the widget is not added. I'm assuming that if you had the widget installed and working before 4.10.2 or 4.10.3 that you would encounter msx's problem."
