A Mindfulness Meditation Tool for Tech People

mdt8 is a tool to help those who spend lots of time in the terminal remember to stay in touch with their bodies via mindfulness meditation.

mdt8 is licensed ISC.


If you develop Rust, you can install mdt8 with Cargo. Clone the repository, enter its directory, and run cargo install.

If you do not have Cargo installed, visit our releases page to download a binary for your system.


Running mdt8 status will tell you what your progress is today, and what your goals are. For instance:

$ mdt8
You plan to spend 60 minutes per day on mindfulness.
So far, you've spent 38 minutes.

You can tell mdt8 that you're starting a meditation with mdt8 start. When you're done, simply type mdt8 stop.

$ mdt8 start
Starting timer.
Remember to breathe deeply, and relax.

<time passes>
$ mdt8 stop
Stopping timer.

You can also mdt8 cancel if you left the timer running by accident, and mdt8 mod MINUTES to add a session manually.
