GNOME Extensions

33 Excellent GNOME Desktop Extensions (Updated 2020)

22. Time ++

Time ++

Time ++ is a bit of a jack in the box. It crams a lot of functionality into a single extension. There’s a todo.txt manager, time tracker, timer, stopwatch, pomodoro, and alarm clock.

This extension has a fullscreen interface, which can be used to control a corresponding section as well as replace regular notifications.

Features of the todo.txt manager include:

  • Kanban boards.
  • Fuzzy task searching.
  • Filtering by context, project, priority, custom fuzzy filters…
  • Toggling a filter on/off.
  • Support for multiple todo files and corresponding done files and csv directories.
  • Compound sorting by priority, due date, completion date, creation date, etc…
  • Fuzzy autocompletion for contexts and projects when inline editing a task.
  • Auto-updating when the todo.txt file changes.
  • Deleting all completed tasks and optionally storing them into a done.txt file.
  • Switching between different views via keyboard shortcuts.


23. Coverflow Alt-Tab


This extension replaces the output of Alt-Tab. You traverse through windows in a cover-flow way.

This extension just adds a garnish of aesthetic beauty to your desktop.


24. Extensions


OK, this extension lacks something in the imagination stakes when it comes to its name, but it’s a handy addition.

The extension lets you easily enable and disable extensions from a popup menu in the top panel.

If you’ve got lots of extensions or want to experiment with them, you might find this extension useful.
