Stretchly v0.19.1 (Windows)

break time reminder app

stretchly is an open source app that reminds you to take breaks when working with computer.

By default, it runs in your tray and shows reminder window every 10 minutes, that is open for 20 seconds, containing idea for microbreak.

Every 30 minutes, it shows window containing idea for longer 5 minute break.

User gets notified 30 seconds before breaks (and 10 seconds before microbreak) to be able to prepare to pause the work.

You can finish break or microbreak early, by clicking the link at the bottom or by using Ctrl/Cmd + x keyboard shortcut (when not in strict mode).

You can pause/resume reminding of breaks. On Windows and macOS, you can set app to start at login.

You can also skip to the next break or microbreak anytime from menu, or reset (restart) breaks.

Tray tooltip shows information about time left till next (micro)break, number of microbreaks until next break or time left in pause till breaks resume.

Microbreaks and breaks can be customized:

you can set duration and interval of break
you can enable/disable breaks
you can enable/disable strict mode (breaks can't be finished early)

you can choose from different color schemes
you can pick a sound to be played at the end of the break

you can set break window to be fullscreen
you can disable showing of break ideas
you can disable showing of break notifications
you can disable monitoring of system idle time for natural breaks (when user leaves and after return idle time is greater then break duration, stretchly will reset breaks)
you can choose language for interface

All settings can be reset to defaults.
Advanced settings

All settings are saved in JSON file. To learn more about how to find it, read this or use Ctrl/Cmd + d shortcut in About window. Related code looks like this:

const dir = app.getPath('userData')
const settingsFile = `${dir}/config.json`

Editing break/microbreak ideas
In config file, change useIdeasFromSettings: false to useIdeasFromSettings: true, and edit breakIdeas and microbreakIdeas.
Editing break/microbreak notification interval
In config file, change breakNotificationInterval: 30000, to whatever value you want. 30000 is 30 seconds. Sane goes for microbreak.
