Minimal Time Management App

Being a high-school student and having everything online, it gets quiet difficult to manage time and get tasks done.
So, I did some research and got to know about a technique called Pomodoro.

And I started looking for a good Pomodoro Timer app but did not find any good app. Either they were paid or lacked a few features.

So, I made myself my own Pomodoro Timer app. It is very minimal.
It is built using ElectronJS & JavaScript.

I would love to share the app with you guys and receive your feedback.

Check out the App on GitHub and download it and even give it a Star.

Thanks for the kind words.
The app is built for Windows Only. There are no plans for distributing it to other platforms.

Even on windows you need a package.json to run it. Also i didn't see any platform-specific code in your project, so i tried to run on MacOS. here is the result :
Just one issue: When app is running the SPACE key (who you set as shortcut or something) on my keyboard is not working at all, in any program! (even yours)
package.json file i wrote:

{
  "name": "YOUR_APP_NAME",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "main": "app.js",
  "scripts": {
    "start": "electron ."
  },
  "dependencies": {
    "electron": "^13.2.1"
  }
}

I have resolved the issue in the latest update (not yet released).
The reason was I set the Space key as a Global shortcut using Electron an this was causing the issue.
Talking about 'Platform-specific', No, there is no restriction regarding distributing the application to other platforms so there should be no problem running that.
Also, I have to added the package.json.

What if I ( or some one from community ) offer our help to get it packaged for Linux (or mac) ?

Why is the release package +300mb for such a simple app?

Is there any way I can reduce the size of the application?
