Chromodoro Beep

I love the Pomodoro Technique and the Chromodoro Chrome extension that supports it. But I don’t like the beep sound that Chromodoro uses to notify me. Fortunately there is a simple solution, that I’d like to share. How to change the Chromodoro beep sound:

  1. Find chromodoro.js (it should be located in a subdirectory of the User Data for Chrome), and open it in a text editor like notepad.
  2. Find the following piece: beep.swf
    and replace it by: beep.wav
  3. Now put your own sound in the same directory as chromodoro.js, and name it beep.wav.

Note: if your sound is not a wav file, then replace .wav above with the correct file type.

A bit off topic for braingaming, but on topic for people who have to manage their own time, like PhD students :)
