LaunchMenu is an open platform, learn about all the features that applets can take advantage of:
LaunchMenu is an Open Source, cross-platform application which brings utilities (applets) to your fingertips. Open it at a press of a button, with LaunchMenu's keyboard centric design!
Some applets come preinstalled but additional 3rd party applets will be available. LaunchMenu relies on applets to serve users, and doesn't limit developers in providing their own desired user experience.
LaunchMenu is actively developed. At present, some features are only partially supported. We will use this legend to indicate what features are supported and what features are planned. You can hover your mouse over the symbol for more information:
Use the arrow keys to navigate the menu.
All controls are customizable to fit your needs! Join the ijkl-master race.
Navigate menus even faster by making use of Mnemonics.
LaunchMenu will have toggle-able custom keyboard layouts, including a VIM inspired layout.
No matter where you are, simply start typing to start searching!
Searches look through the selected menu as well as all sub-menus.
Searches can use patterns to automatically filter results.
By default all searches use a fuzzy matching algorithm.
All searches will be tracked and prioritized intelligently, bringing frequently used items closer to the top of the list.
Items can have multiple actions, the primary action is executed on

Context menus can contain sub-menus, reducing clutter by hiding rarely used actions.

You can select multiple items by pressing or holding
Opening a context menu will list actions from all the selected items. Actions executed will operate on all compatible items.
Settings can be searched, and altered easily.
All keyboard shortcuts and controls can be fully customized to suit your needs.
Like native LaunchMenu features, all applets - including 3rd party applets, can be customizable.
Settings will be portable, allowing you to import and export them.
LaunchMenu has an applet manager, which will allow the installation and removal of both official and 3rd party applets.
The colour and style of LaunchMenu and its applets will be customizable through themes.
LaunchMenu is primarily being developed and tested on Windows, so this platform has smallest chance of containing bugs.
Most features have been tested and adjusted to work on Mac, but this testing has been less extensive than on Windows.
