In January, I told you all about a terminal hack to help me recover from the inevitable distraction that comes when I run commands that take a while to run (for me, mostly test suites).
I’ve been using the hack since then, and it has given me a great deal of pleasure. Others have watched it and said that they very much wanted it.
As such, you can now go to the undistract-me website to get instruction on how to download and install it. Or, if you’re using Ubuntu:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:undistract-me-packagers/daily$ sudo apt-get update$ sudo apt-get install undistract-me
Once you’ve done that, and have started a new login shell, then you’ll get a notification whenever a command that takes more than 10 seconds to run finally completes.
