Pomodoro Timer with Music in Python
# Pomodoro Timer with Music in Python
# By: Tom Ordonez
# The countdown function was inspired by an answer I saw on stackoverflow.
# Before running this program you need to: pip install python-vlc
# To run the program: python3 pomodoroTimer.py
# To modify the length of the Pomodoro just change the range of the countdown function
# Change the name of the mp3 files to your own files. They need to be placed
# in the same directory where tyou place this python file.
# If you have questions send me a message on LI: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tomordonez/
