FS#2610 - Effort pop-up timer

It would be terrific to have a small pop-up window that appears when you click to start tracking of an item. In the window could be:

  • the task name
  • a timer
  • a button to close the timer pop-up and jump to the effort tracking screen, or even to stop the effort timer in FlySpray if possible.

This would help tremendously to remind a developer that he has one or more timers going in FlySpray.

If multiple timers are started, there could be multiple timer windows, each identified by the task name showing as part of the window (title bar or some text near the timer).

I added one very rough implementation today to github branch myefforttimers.

It uses the meta refresh feature from the 90s, so works even if javascript is disabled for this example and reloads the window every 60 seconds.

This probably works best on linux/unix desktops where setting window depth is standard feature, so a window can always be on top or a different virtual screen.

But probably the better way is to add running timer info as indicators to the to right edge of Flyspray where the logout button, profile button is.

And also show the list of running effort timers on the myprofile page.
