Keypirinha Plugin: Currency

This is Currency, a currency converter plugin for the Keypirinha launcher.




Once the Currency.keypirinha-package file is installed, move it to the InstalledPackage folder located at:

  • Keypirinha\portable\Profile\InstalledPackages in Portable mode
  • Or %APPDATA%\Keypirinha\InstalledPackages in Installed mode (the final path would look like C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Keypirinha\InstalledPackages)


A Convert Currency item is inserted into the catalog with conversion from USD to BRL. Select this item to enter conversion mode.

Enter the amount to convert, the source currency code and the destination currency code. If either the source and destination currency is omitted, the defaults are used. If the amount is omitted, the current exchange rate is shown.

Currency allows the source and destination currencies to be separated by any of the following:

  • in
  • to
  • :

To convert between multiple currencies at the same time, separate each one by a comma. This can be done in either the source or destination field, and all combinations will be displayed in the results.

This means that all of the following are allowed:

  • 5 usd in inr,JPY
  • EUR to JPY
  • 10 brl,usd:EUR,gbp
