+Introduction
+============
+
+Tomate is a simple productivity notification icon freely inspired from the
+Pomodoro technique.
+
+The idea is as follows: when you click the icon, it becomes red. Clicking means
+you commit to working without interruption for at least ten minutes. After these
+ten minutes, the icon turns green, meaning that you are free to continue working
+or to take a break whenever you like. When you’re done working, click the icon
+again: it will turn back to grey, and inform you of the time you spent working.
+
+The rationale is that the hardest part of working is getting at it. Past the
+first ten minutes, continuing to work is far easier. So you only have to commit
+to the first ten minutes, your motivation should do the rest.
+
+Running and installing
+======================
+
+To run the applet, simply launch tomate.py: ./tomate.py.
+If you like it, I suggest adding it to the startup applications of your desktop
+environment.
