I use this app all the time, it is simple, yet useful. But it seems abandoned (last update was in 2014), so I give it only 4 stars...
Any plans to port this app on Qt framework?
You can check my Workrave alternative - Resto (see http://just-code.org/applications/resto/ ). It's not as complex as Workave itself, but it's written entirely in Qt.
I have been using EyeLeo, but it's almost stopped working. Went out to find a replacement. And Workrave is working just fine. Someone below said it was memory hungry. I didn't notice. Only eats 20MB of RAM. It's nothing these days. Don't make me laugh. The design is fine and I like it for now. Will be checking out others to see if there is still something better. Save your eyes. Be no fool.

Workrave is too memory hungry for such a simple app.
Its also way too complicated. All you need is something which pops up every 20 mins to remind you to take a break.
Dont waste your time with this - try Eyedefender which is 20 times smaller and is simple to use.
