I have search on google but I don't have found anything about the meas of this two plugins: Inactivity watch and Activity watch.
Anyone can explain me how it works? I have tried to activate/deactivate it but I can't see anything.
This new plugin was developed as described in this bug-report.
Looking at the plugins source-code (
When monitoring a log file, it is sometimes useful to be prompted when it has been updated.
A notification is sent whenever the file has been updated.
N.B. once a notification is displayed, another notification is not sent for another hard-coded 10 seconds, thus you dont have a continual stream of notifications being displayed for a continually updated file.
How to enable
Perhaps slightly confusing, the inactivitywatch and activitywatch plugins are displayed not by their plugin names.
Right-click a terminator pane - you can individually set to either watch for silence or watch for activity or both.
I haven't seen the InactivityWatch plugin, but I can tell you what the ActivityWatch plugin does:
Right click a terminal window you're in and click "Watch for activity". Now, any time there is activity in that terminal, a notification through pynotify will be sent (which calls libnotify) and should show a notification on your desktop.
I am going to assume that the InactivityWatch plugin does the opposite of the ActivityWatch plugin and alerts you of a (long) inactivity in that terminal window.
