Another Pomodoro Timer, and a calculator to spice things up
0.0 0


I spent much longer than I thought I was going to on this timer, and learned a few new tricks. I’m somewhat happy with how it turned out, although the code is a little sloppy and the styling could use some polish.

I noticed a bug at one point I haven’t been able to recreate and am not sure how it happened but my ‘Restart Pomodoro’ button turned into a ‘Start New Set button’

I had the durations set to: pomodoro 25-50 minutes, short-break 2-5 minutes, long break 15-30 minutes but lowered the minimum to 1 minute for testing purposes.

Please let me know what you think of the timer and any pointers you could give me are greatly appreciated.

And here is the promised calculator if you’re interested in that as well, I didn’t spend as much time on this and it shows. I have some bugs I know of that I should probable tackle and I’m sure you guys will let me know of more.

P.S. Is it convention to link to the full page view so you can experience it first or the editor view so you can see the code?


Calculator Issue #1 - If I enter 1 / 7 = and then enter * 7 =, I expect to see 1 and not 0.9999999999999


Yeah, I tried adding a buffer to help with cases like that but now I’m getting a strange behavior in my evaluate function. If I enter 1 / 7 = * 7 = +15 = /.2 = I get a syntax error. Same thing for 9 * 5 / 4 *3. Pretty much any time I’m using divide or multiply more than twice it gets mad.

I think I tried to take the easy way out using eval() and I’m going to start the logic from scratch.

Any thoughts on the pomodoro timer?


Alright I reworked the calculator and I think I have it functioning how I want it to now!

Anything else anyone can find? Or any comments on the timer?
