Interesting, thanks for the article.
Couple of suggestions:
Make the activities a list saved into a separate file that could be selected from a combo box.
A minimal mode for the window, with the activity combo box, start and stop buttons.
Thanks for the feedback!
I tend to use very specific activity, such as Phabricator object codes or article names. The combo box would feel like overkill for that, I feel.
Hmm...that sounds tricky to pull off, but very appealing if I could! I'll add that to my feature wishlist. (In the meantime, the system tray icon mostly fills this role by displaying the timer duration and allowing you to pause and resume.)
Guess it depends on your work patterns, but if you have specific activities that you work on, then a list is more effective than having to type in all the time.
