Port to Gnome Shell as an extension

Asked by Ole Ernst on 2011-08-14

Hi all,

I just wanted to ask, if there are any plans of porting your nice applet to the Gnome Shell. I really loved your applet and used it quite often in Gnome 2.x. It's a pity I can't use is it any more. There is already a timer like extension (https://github.com/codito/gnome-shell-pomodoro) but it's quite hard to set an exact time (seconds range) and it's not about the use case of your applet.

Thanks in advance!

Ole

I don't have any plans, yet, to port it to gnome shell, but I will be
glad to merge patches. In my opinion, it makes sense in this case to
start a project from scratch.

Thanks for the quick answer!

I actually sat down and wrote that extension based on the pomodoro one. It should have pretty much the same features as this applet now.
Would be happy to have some beta testers and comments on the code.

Cheers Ole

You are awesome :) . Can you share the code with us?

This is some awesome work... Would you mind if I point out your
extension as the successor of Timer Applet.

I would like to see the following things in the Gnome 3 extension:
 - Support for presets (which includes not changing the running timer
when changing the time)

Expect a pull request any time soon. :)

You have done some incredible work there, Sir...

Kudos,
Kenny Meyer

I have created a Debian package for this Shell extension. It's in the NEW queue right now and you can build it from sources here (with git-buildpackage + pristine-tar): git://git.debian.org/collab-maint/gnome-shell-timer.git

Excellent! Development of the gnome shell extension is not discussed
here, but on GitHub.

Thank you very much for your time.

P.S.: Are you olebowle? If yes, excuse me. :)
