What is copo?

copo is a command line pomodoro timer that allows you to set whatever work to rest ratio that you want, without needing to use an advert-ridden website.

The copo tool is written in Rust and uses the progress bars provided by the indicatif crate to illustrate how long you have left on your timer, instead of just a hh:mm::ss time string.

How do I install copo?

Currently, to install copo, you'll first need to download the Rust toolchain. This can be done with this command - curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh (if you're using windows, look here). Then run cargo install copo and you'll be ready to go.

How do I use copo?

You can run a copo timer, you have to specify both the 'work' and 'rest' durations. For the sake of example, let's say that we want 30 minutes of work to 15 minutes of rest. To run a timer, you would need to run copo *work duration* *rest duration*, so our example would be written as copo 30 15. If you ever forget, just write 'copo --help' and you will get a summmary of the application's parameters and arguments.
