Pomodore (Tomato Clock Port)

0.33MB. Updated 2019-08-24. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.


Does not work for everyone Disclaimer: This is alpha software, I can't guarantee the functionality. Always keep backups! This addon augments your spaced repetition learning with the Pomodore technique. In brief: Work for 20 minutes and take a break of 5 minutes. You can learn more it on wikipedia Forked from Tomato Clock 2.0 Features not supported: - graphs - speed mode (use https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1046608507 instead)(tomato/normal mode is the same) I am not the author of the original addon and simply worked myself through the errors. I expect there to be bugs. The source code lives at https://github.com/Aliuakbar/Pomodore You can open issues there. I can't answer your questions here.


As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.

To download this add-on, please copy and paste the following code into Anki 2.1:


If you were linked to this page from the internet, please open Anki on your computer, go to the Tools menu and then Add-ons>Browse & Install to paste in the code.

did not work for me
on 1606587233
UPDATE: Use https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/2018952444 instead. (The author says that this plugin is no longer maintained, so I am trying to maintain an updated version of this addon there. I have also fixed the issue with break time mentioned below)
Works with a few code changes. (I also did fix below in kklib.py, but idk if it helped)
Go to "TomatoClock/lib/config.py" in a text editor and do this:

# from anki.sync import os
from .kkLib import MetaConfigObj
# path_join = os.path.join

You can manually install with all the changes for now here: https://github.com/millett/Pomodore

Good app helps me stay focuses

It works with the fixes below and it is almost what I was looking for... However, I really dislike, that it doesn't let me finish the flash card I am currently reviewing. If it's one that takes a little more time, this is especially frustrating.

Also, if i review without pomodoro, i sometimes get an error message (which doesn't do anything though):

Millet's version of this addon is working on Anki 2.1.26 on a Mac. https://github.com/millett/Pomodore I downloaded their code and replaced the file on the already installed pomodoro addon I had. The only thing is that the break time always equals the study time, e.g. if I select to study for 45 minutes, the ensuing break is for 45 minutes. It autoresets to the study time when you try to change it on the gear options. Any update on this will be appreciated it!

Didn't work for me (not good), thanks to the user who commented here I got it to work (https://github.com/millett/Pomodore - good! - note: when you put the folder in your ankiaddons21 map be sure to change the - to _), but only seem to work on my windows 10 desktop and not on ankidroid (no button to start the pomodoro timer - not good).

Some extra screenshots or a bit more information about this addon would have been nice, as I got a limited idea about I was downloading. Now I got it to work (desktop) I would still have liked a bit more info (f.e. what is the difference between the button for 'pomodoro timer' and 'normal' when it seems that normal is a timer too; how to change the settings: I seem to be only able to change one while one needs to be able to change both the timer and break settings)! Probably would be easy to figure it all out on your own, however I won't be using it as it is useless to me because it doesn't work on ankidroid...

Didnt work at first but after doing the fix down below, WORKS!!
on 1597777769
Method below does not work for Mac as of 8-18-20.
on 1596467444
Use the fix that is given below and it works on the most updated version of Anki
on 1596248973
Used to work great, but I updated my Anki and it doesn't work anymore. I used to love growing more tomatoes with this add on.
on 1595756292
Here's a temporary fix if it's not working for you...

Go to Addons > Pomodore > View files > TomatoClock > lib
Open the kkLib file and make these changes:
from aqt import *
#from aqt.downloader import download
from aqt.utils import showInfo, openLink

Doesnt seem to work with 2.1

very useful addon
I used to get errors upon starting anki or finishing a deck but unchecking "show statistics" in the settings seemed to fix it for me. It might have been due to conflicting addons on my setup.

I have noticed a significant increase in productivity since using Pomodore. Thank you for a great add on!
on 1587635442
was wroking with ANKI 2.0 but as I updated the ANKI it`s not working
on 1587234708
para quem usa o método "pomodoro" é excelente

good idea but not working please fix
on 1585671960
awesome add on but doesn't work with 2.1.23 :(
on 1585594515
Loved it but then it stopped working once I updated to 2.1.23. Please fix.
on 1585142122
good one

super cool and useful add-on!

Not working on 2.1.20
on 1583495695
Really useful! Thank you!
on 1582851875
Although UI always displays 5min rest time,you can change this on the settings (the UI will still show 5 mins rest)
on 1582087099
on 1582052302
not working with latest anki 2.1.20. please update it
on 1580867709
love it
on 1580332432
Excellent. I agree with the comments below. The UI always displays a 5 minute break. My only issue is that it interferes with the More Overview Stats 2.1 add on. I don't necessarily mind toggling between them, but it'd be cool to be able to use them simultaneously.

Works a few times and then ANKI tells me it's bugging out. GITHUB doesn't have a way to notify code issues
on 1579507369
very good addon!
but even the tomato mode is 10/2 15/3 20/4 25/25 ...
the UI always display 10/5 15/5 20/5 25/5 ...
on 1578173234
Thanks for updating this!
on 1578114460
Works fine
on 1577372566
spot on!
on 1576717006
Thank you
on 1573454439
Great add-on. Very handy. Excited to see what the future updates.
on 1573442945
I see in the settings you can change the break time but on the main screen it always says the break is 5 mins... Will the break be what is says in the settings or on the main screen being always 5 mins?
on 1573159386
on 1572777202
need graphs!
thx very much
on 1571393721
Great to have a built in pomodoro timer - means I don't forget to stop/start it like I do with a separate timer.
on 1565896054
Wonderful addon. Thank you so much for porting this.
EDIT: Can't open any issues on Github. Could you look into that?
on 1565879321
LOVE IT! Whats the difference between tomato and normal mode?
on 1565826347
I was so excited but doesn't work. Thanks for giving it a go.
Edit: works, great job sir.
