Skuld is a [pomodoro timer] that runs inside Vim. It can help you track
your tasks in an simple (or stupid) way.

Skuld depends on `+python` or `+python3`, as well as `+clientserver`.
Nothing else is needed.
[Vundle] is recommended.
After a successful installation, these commands are available:
- `SkuldStartTimer <task_id>` : Start the pomodoro timer
- `SkuldStopTimer` : Stop the pomodoro timer
- `SkuldStartTask <task_id>` : Switch current task. The timer will be started if it's stopped
- `SkuldSwitchTask <task_id>` : Switch current task
- `SkuldGetState` : Display current timer state
- `SkuldBufOpen` : Open the buffer containing the task list (`[Skuld Tasks]`)
- `SkuldTaskUpdate` : Update the internal task list according to `[Skuld Tasks]` buffer
`SkuldBufOpen` is mapped to `<leader>sb` by default. You can open a scratch
buffer called `[Skuld Tasks]` using this command, and then write down your
tasks in that buffer, **one task per line**. Whenever you leave insert mode,
or leave the `[Skuld Tasks]` buffer, your tasks will be set automatically.
Each task will be assigned an ID. The IDs start from **zero**.
Once the tasks are set, you can press `<cr>` on a task to start the timer.
You don't need to keep the `[Skuld Tasks]` buffer open while the timer is
When the pomodoro timer times out, there will be a Vim message signifying
the change of timer state. You can start working or have a break
accordingly. Skuld will append a pomodoro completion symbol, which defaults
to `*`, after the current task, when a working period ends.
If you invoked `SkuldStopTimer` during a working period, a squash symbol,
which defaults to `x`, will be appended instead.
You can edit `[Skuld Tasks]` buffer while the timer is running. Edited
tasks will be synchronized automatically once you leave insert mode or
leave the buffer.
nnoremap <leader>sb :SkuldBufOpen<cr>
nnoremap <leader>ss :SkuldGetState<cr>
These variables can be set in you `.vimrc` to override the defaults:
" Pomodoro completion symbol
let g:skuld_progress_symbol = '*'
" Pomodoro squashed symbol
let g:skuld_squash_symbol = 'x'
" Pomodoro working period (in minutes)
let g:skuld_work_period = 25
" Pomodoro resting period (in minutes)
let g:skuld_rest_period = 5
" Pomodoro long resting period (in minutes)
let g:skuld_long_rest_period = 15
" Max working streak before long resting
let g:skuld_max_work_streak = 4
" Notification command
let g:skuld_notify_cmd = 'notify-send'
" Mapping for opening the task buffer
let g:skuld_buffer_map = '<leader>sb'
" Mapping for displaying the current state
let g:skuld_state_map = '<leader>ss'
" Default line width for the task buffer
let g:skuld_line_width = 29
