QuickLauncher

A minimal Qt based menu to quickly find and execute Maya commands and user scripts.

quicklauncher

quicklauncher relies on PySide/PySide2 and should work out of the box on Autodesk Maya 2014 or greater.

Installation

There are many ways to go about this, but for casual users I would recommend to get the latest release and simply copy quicklauncher.py to your maya script directory.

If you are a developer or want to integrate quicklauncher in your pipeline, I highly recommend the standard setup.py script as it brings more flexibility.

python setup.py install

Usage

import quicklauncher
quicklauncher.show()

You can also select the folder in which quicklauncher will look for user scripts (repo).

import quicklauncher
quicklauncher.select_repo()

For more info, check the Wiki (there are a few interesting things you can do).
