• This application is a time management tool, that uses the pomodoro technique. it intends to improve productivity and concentration by taking programmed breaks.
Then, install:

sudo dnf install gnome-shell-extension-pomodoro


## Technique

Pomodoro technique have six steps:

• Decide on the task to be done.
• Set the pomodoro timer (usually is 25 minutes).
• Work on the task until the timer rings.
• After the rings, put a checkmark on a piece of paper (todo list e.g.).
• If you have fewer than four checkmarks, take a short break (3–5 minutes), then go to step 2.
• After four pomodoros, take a longer break (15–30 minutes), reset your checkmark count to zero, then go to step 1.

it can be used like TODO list.

## Testing

Once installed, you’ll have this window:

If you press play, pomodoro starts by default with 25 minutes on timer.
