Option to display task and timer in touchbar#83

…for machines with that (mostly useless) touchbar. Would certainly make it more useful instead of being blank 90% of the time.

We tested it early on and it indeed does finally give some meaning to the bar. This is definitely on the roadmap :)

For now, you can add a custom solution using BetterTouchTool app. It will not show a timer but can trigger shortcuts and open the app

From what I can tell, this will not work because you can’t show a Touch Bar widget from one app while you’re focused on a different app.

Can anyone confirm/deny this? (I have a Macbook Pro without the Touch Bar)

Jordan, I just got a Macbook Pro with a touchbar and so far that seems to be my impression as well. I agree though that it would be pretty cool to have some kind of Slash - Touch Bar integration.

@Evan Aguilar see my last comment. I don’t think it’s possible to do this and make it appear while you’re in other apps.

Notably, BetterTouchTool seems to have a way to insert a button directly into the control strip (which is always visible globally across apps), but that may use private APIs or not allow for dynamic content (it’s just a static icon to launch BTT), so possibly not suitable for the purpose here. But just thought I’d point it out.
