I hacked this together last night after trying a number of time-tracking/Pomodoro apps and realizing I disliked all of them and could just make one that fits my style. The goals for the tool are: simplicity, a command-line interface, and an optional plaint-text logging format that lends itself simple analysis with tools like awk and grep.

    Unfortunately, in many fonts, pom is nearly indistinguishable from porn, so this is a sort of unfortunate choice of name.

      This is exactly what I read the first time. I thought it was labeled as “productivity porn”.

      May I suggest tom (from tomato, from pomodoro?)

      Nice project, I will try it out at work tomorrow. Have been trying a few different solutions for time/task tracking, but this is a really simple approach.

      I would suggest that you set 25 minutes to default since this is the default interval time specified by the pomodoro technique

        Thanks! Just pushed this change.

        It has some errors on OpenBSD including the -s option for which. I’ll open an issue about it if you’d like.

          Yes, please do. I’d like to make it portable.

            Great! I’ll play with it a little more and let you know. Thanks!

          This inspired to me write one in Go that did what I wanted (specify number of pomodoros, break time, and pomodoro time).

            This link is 404'ing for me.

              Whoops – I forgot that I ended up renaming the repository.

                You accidentally linked to your old repository again, I think. Here is the current one.
