Take a break 1.3 (Plasma 5 Plasmoid)

Sat, 2016/04/30 - 2:17pm
ThumbnailTake a break 1.3
(Plasma 5 Plasmoid)
Widget (plasmoid) for plasma panel.
Shows an icon when it is time to take a break.

Problem: Sometimes you don't remember that you have to take a break. And sometimes you remember that you have to take a break, but you don't remember when you took a break last time.

Solution: The 'Take a break' widget, that shows an icon when it is time to take a break.

Characteristics:

  • Not intrusive: It doesn't show any dialog nor any buttons to be clicked. It just shows an icon in the panel when it is time to take a break.

  • Unattended: You don't have to do anything. Everything is automatic. The widget detects when you are taking a break and when you come back.

  • Easy configuration: You only have to enter two values in the widget config: The 'work time' and the 'break time'.


  • And of course, easy use:

  • At start, the widget shows a countdown with the minutes to take next break.

  • When the countdown reaches zero, a tired face icon is shown in the panel, with a red background. It means that it is time to take a break.

  • The tired face with the red background is kept if you continue working.

  • If you are idle (not using mouse nor keyboard) for the configured 'break time' less one minute, the program considers that you are taking a break, and shows a yellow background in the tired face.

  • If you are idle for the configured 'break time', the program considers that you have completed the break, and shows a green background in the tired face.

  • If you come back (use the mouse or keyboard) while showing the green background, the countdown will be shown and restarted.

  • If you come back while still showing the yellow background, the program considers that you haven't completed the break, so a red background will be shown again.

  • What if you took a short break, but you want to restart the countdown? No problem, you only have to click on the widget whenever you want to restart the countdown.


  • The widget works in horizontal panels, in vertical panels, and in desktop.

    Want to save space in the panel? Use the "hide&show" mode:

  • To enable the "hide&show" mode, just control+click on the widget (click on the widget while pressing the "control" key).

  • Least important information (the countdown) will be hidden, and most important information (the tired face icon) will be shown.

  • If you want to see the countdown, just pass the mouse slowly over the widget zone, and the countdown will be shown for five seconds.

  • To disable the "hide&show" mode, just control+click on the widget again.

  • If you don't want the countdown to be shown when passing the mouse over the widget zone, then enable the "hide&show" mode by using "control+shift+click" instead of "control+click".

  • Alternatively you can configure the "hide&show" mode at "Advanced" preferences.



  • REQUIRES

  • KDE 5 (Plasma 5).



  • AUTOMATIC INSTALLATION

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...' -> 'Get new widgets' -> 'Download new Plasma widgets'.

  • Search for 'Take a break', and click on 'Install'.


  • The installation is done. Now we are going to add the plasmoid to the panel:

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...'.

  • Search for 'Take a break', and double-click on the item found. The plasmoid will be added to the panel. If you prefer to add the widget to the desktop, then drag the item found and drop it to the desktop.

  • Move the plasmoid to your favourite place.



  • MANUAL INSTALLATION

  • Download the file 'take_a_break.plasmoid' to some folder in your hard disk.

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...' -> 'Install widget from local file...'.

  • A file selection window will be shown. Go to the folder (where you saved the file to), select the downloaded file, and click on Ok.


  • The installation is done. Now we are going to add the plasmoid to the panel:

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Add widgets...'.

  • Search for 'Take a break', and double-click on the item found. The plasmoid will be added to the panel. If you prefer to add the widget to the desktop, then drag the item found and drop it to the desktop.

  • Move the plasmoid to your favourite place.



  • HOW TO UNINSTALL

  • Right click on any panel widget (for example, in the kde menu widget) and select 'Panel options' -> 'Panel preferences'.

  • Rigth-click on the plasmoid (Take a break), and click on 'Remove this Take a break'.


  • The plasmoid has been removed from the panel. Now we are going to uninstall it. Open a shell and run this command:

    plasmapkg2 --remove org.kde.contrib.takeabreak
