The missing egg timer command for Slack

Add to Slack
Show gif

/egg [30s 1 3 5 10 15 20 25 25-5 30]

E.g. /egg 30s


There are currently ten timers available, the 25-5 option is the focused work timer which runs for 25 minutes and then another 5 minutes with a different background colour to distinguish the break period. All timers are only visible to the person who issued the command.


How does it work?

GIFs, its all about the GIFs.

What happens when the timer reaches the end?

It's just a GIF so it will restart.

Can I choose an arbitrary time?

Not currently. But I may add that in the future.

I don't get it, are you serious?

My brain was when it came up with the idea at 2am. Just a fun little hack really.

Have you actually been asked any of these questions?

Not yet. Happy to answer any real questions on twitter though @harveytoro.
