Can launch your 90kg applications for 300m (It's a launcher, like katapult, but better).
This is a launcher for people that are nostalgic about katapult.
It is licensed under GPLv3.
It uses Qt5.5 and QML.
Right now it can search:
- Installed applications
- Web shortcuts (Those KDE things to search on google by typing gg:string)
Requires Qt5.5 and libx11.
mkdir build cd build qmake .. make ./trabucco
I got a bit nostalgic of katapult, because it was much better than krunner.
Trabucco means trebuchet in Italian, which is a siege weapon, like a catapult.
When KDE4 was released, katapult was replaced by krunner, which has several drawbacks.
- It sometimes crashes.
- Uses a timeout to show suggestions. This means that if the system is under heavy load, no suggestion is shown.
- Fuzzy. A certain sequence of letters doesn't always result in the same suggestions.
- Most plugins don't work, or trigger heavy CPU load.
Trabucco aims to solve these problems by showing only one suggestion per search string, and being deterministic about it.
I will add plugins for things that I need.
To compile with debug symbols,
qmake CONFIG+=debug .. make
