Story Behind Cato

One day, I forgot my laptop at home while visiting a cousin's house. Luckily, he had a backup chromebook laptop I could use temporarily. Of course using this pc wasn't the same as my own laptop which had Alfred App, my text editors and a few other command-driven apps.

I'd gotten accustomed to simply typing everything I needed on my computer, without almost ever using my mouse. I wanted a similar command-driven experience in one of the apps I use most as a software developer - my web browser. Thus, Cato was born.

Now, with Cato, I can get nearly the same command-driven experiences that apps like Alfred App/Atom/VSCode/Spotlight have, but in my web browser on nearly any operating system! #yay πŸŽ‰πŸ»πŸŽŠ
