This is a small xfce4 panel plug-in I wrote for tracking my projects both at work and home office. Apparently it is on its way into the fedora rawhide repositories and has attracted a small but friendly user base.
My primary use case is that when I write my freelancer invoices to the contractor, the daily activity field is too small to contain enough detail for the customers internal bookkeeping. With the help of hamster, I can easily produce monthly project hour summaries and keep the customer happy without giving too much detail to the contractor.
Consonance was supported ever since 2006 or so and is about to be replaced by pragha, available in the 4.6 branch.
Ever since xfce 4.8 was released, I was fighting with mysterious crashes when removing the plugin; rewrote it to become a .so to no avail. Now it runs, somewhat, but not yet stable. Available in the trunk.
Hopefully, the MPRIS2 patch I wrote for pragha will prove itself useful.
The settings dialog has been upgraded; dynamic attachment to running clients, real configurable media buttons…
Unfortunately, in the last year the Player’s D-Bus APIs changed somewhat so currently only Mpd appears stable.
Consonance seems to be dead. Muine too.
