We noticed that although we have an abundance of free time during this pandemic, it is very difficult to use it productively so we thought about making an extension that mimics the Pomodoro technique for studying.
What it does
This extension allows a user to select a combination of study to break times and the extension runs a timer in the background that illustrates when one should be studying and when they should take a break.
How we built it
We built this using JS, HTML, and CSS.
Challenges we ran into
Learn how chrome's storage works to allow us to communicate between different files.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This project required a lot of research into the syntax and specificities of a chrome extension.
What we learned
We learned about listening to events in JS, and storing data in chrome.
What's next for CoronaTime
Further developing of UI and debugging, and integrating user input to allow them to choose their own combinations.
