TL;DR: lots of questions about building a pomodoro script in TaskPaper. Mostly: is there a way to have timers and notifications?
I wrote a pomodoro script for TaskPaper but I don’t like how hacky it is. I have started writing a v2 and have some API questions (or perhaps requests) as a result.
This is what I’d like to achieve:
- External app (Alfred in this case) gets list of candidate items for next pomodoro. v1 does this fine. I did this externally but maybe
getOutlineEditors()would have been better.
- External app picks an Item and adds
@pomo(<countdown>)to it in TaskPaper. I think that I know how to do this. Something like:
- But now comes the part that I don’t know how to do. I’d like to be able to register for timer callbacks and (1/minute) change the attribute. Down to 0.
- And then the other part that I don’t see a way to do: I’d like to fire a notification when the timer hits 0?
Have I misread the docs and there is a way to do the countdown and notification steps? Or is there no such feature?
