Minuteur applescript Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Here's a code-snippet for someone who asked about snagging durations from a task and throwing it into Minuteur. It's crude, but works ok for me. If you don't have growl, comment out that line...

tell application "OmniFocus"
	tell front document
		tell document window 1
			set theSelectedItems to selected trees of content
		end tell
		if ((count of theSelectedItems) = 1) then
			set selectedItem to value of item 1 of theSelectedItems
			set selectedDuration to estimated minutes of selectedItem
		end if
	end tell
end tell

tell application "Minuteur"
	StartCountdown "00" & selectedDuration & "00"
end tell

do shell script "/usr/local/bin/growlnotify OmniFocus Task focus -m 'Working on selected task for " & selectedDuration & " minutes' -p 1"
Hope this helps with some ideas...
The growl is a nice touch.

For code that allows for slightly longer durations, (and for summing up the durations of a set of selected tasks) you could also look at the earlier thread on scripting Minuteur.

Hey Rob,

Thanks for the reply! I'm new to the forum, so it appears I've missed a ton of great info! :)

Thanks for the pointer!!

ps- growl is fantastic for most simple dialogs- love to use it where possible. :)
