My little software GW logo

I made some nice software with Qt, nothing out of the ordinary, but still usefull. There GpaWa Editor, a small text editor that can handle raw text as much as rich one. And there is GpaWa Eye Rest Helper, a very small piece of software with two countdowns which intend to make you take breaks when you are in front of a screen.

GpaWa Editor: the text editor combining both the Notepad’s fast startup and execution, and advanced features like that of LibreOffice or Microsoft Word.

Its features are the following:

  • A toobar movable to any side, customisable, and even removeable;
  • Drag & drop files to easily open them;
  • Multiple tabs: useful for those who open 15 files at a time;
  • Rich text: choose the colour, size, font family, boldness, and so on;
  • Separate the different sections of your document with horizontal bars which always have same width as the window;
  • File lists: save your current tabs to open them all later;
  • Insert ballpoint and numberedlists;
  • "Search & replace";
  • Recent files list
  • Auto-save.

Or course this is far from a full-fledged document editor like LibreOffice, the is for instance no layout editing or spellchecker, and there is no syntax hughlighting like in SublimeText, but it still is much more advanced than the Notepad and just as fast.

GWERH logo

GpaWa Eye Rest Helper is a piece of software aiming to reduce damaging your eyes when you are on your computed for an extended period of time. The idea is to make you work for a reasonable amount of time, then make you take a short break.

GWERH (a rather comical acronym as it happens) offers a long countdown (of an hour by default) than you start when starting to work. Once it is over, a nice flute music will play, telling you it is time to take a break. You then start the second countdown (five minutes by defualt) which, once done, will make a continuous bell sound, signaling that you can resume uour work. To stop the bells, click on the "Stop" button, or start a countdown.

Alternate like this between screen time and breaks. Your eyes will thank you!
