Minidoro app

Minidoro is Time tool that is open source under the MIT license. Minidoro is a very minimalist but reliable Pomodoro® Technique timer

Pomodoro® Technique is extremely simple but efficient time management technique developed by Francesco Cirillo.

The proposal is it's simpler to concentrate on work for a relatively short period (i.e., 25 min) keeping in mind you can take a rest or switch to another activity after that.

That's very simple:

  • You split your work for 25 minute intervals, separated by short break periods
  • In these 25 minute intervals try to focus on your work as much as possible, try to not distract yourself and to avoid other distractions
  • After a 25 minute interval take a 5 minute break. During this break do any other activities except for the previous work
  • Return to the work after the break (or not, if you've finished)
  • Take a long break about 10–30 minutes after every 4 work intervals

Wear OS notice

It would be a great feature that Minidoro running on Wear OS turns DnD mode on both Wear OS and Android device. It should be generally possible since Wear OS may turn DnD on Android devices. But there's one nuisance. It's not possible to allow any app to operate DnD Mode in Wear OS from Wear OS UI. The only way to allow Minidoro to operate DnD in Wear OS is ADB command (no root should be needed).

Install Minidoro, turn Wear OS in debug mode and connect to computer.

After that for Wear OS 2.2 (based on Android 9) and above run this: "adb shell cmd notification allow_listener com.github.ympavlov.minidoro/com.github.ympavlov.minidoro.dnd.DndModeServiceV21"

For any other Wear OS version below (based on Android 8.1 and below) use this: "adb shell settings put secure enabled_notification_listeners"
