#minitimer - A timer in your terminal

minitimer is a very simple timer that lives in the terminal of your system. It also provides a named pipe which you can pass commands to to control a running instance of minitimer.


minitimer requires:

  1. A POSIX-like system
  2. A C99 compiler

Build by using:

$ make

If you'd like to customize the building process, set your desired variables in config.mk.

minitimer is configured by setting variables in config.h, using config.def.h as a template.


You may install minitimer by running the following command as root:

# make install

This will install the binary under $PREFIX/bin, as defined by your environment, or /usr/local/bin by default. The Makefile supports the $DESTDIR variable as well.


All contributions are welcome! If you wish to send in patches, ideas, or report a bug, you may do so by sending an email to the minitimer-devel mailing list.
