A few years ago (before I joined the modern age and got a smart phone) I had issues shutting my alarm clock off in my sleep. I decided I needed to do something drastic before I would get fired for showing up late to work. My solution: using my computer’s 5.1 surround sound to force me out of bed and to the other side of the room to shut off the noise. After about a week of development, QTalarm was born. The current version (v2.0.0) boasts
- Unlimited alarms
- Can wake up using the default sound, or any of audio / video file of your choosing.
- Custom Date alarms
- Completely Cross platform
By default, the application runs in your systemtray (typically located in the bottom right corner of your screen. All the code is available on github.
You can download QTalarm from here as well.
(note, at the moment there is no installer for QTalarm, just an executable)
It has come to my attention that the windows binaries will probably not run unless you have the QT creator suite installed. There is a fix, but it involves statically compiling the project. This takes time and seeing that 1) I hardly touch windows, 2) I am lazy I probably wont be fixing this anytime soon. If you really, really, really a hassle free windows version, shoot me an email and I’ll try to get to it.
- Source PGP Signature
- Arch users can find the application in the AUR
- To Build:
- Have QT5 installed
- run qmake
- run make
I don’t own a mac, so I cant make an executable for it. For the time being mac users will have to compile the application from source.
