      Don’t care about security, right?

        What’s insecure about those options?

        Quicksilver is another open source launcher for macOS. What does this project aim to do differently?

        1. 2

          Man, I had no idea Quicksilver was still alive and kicking. I seem to remember it being dead awhile back, which is when I switched to Alfred.

            Hmm, I hadn’t heard about this project before. Thanks for the link.

            It turns out that there is only one difference between it and spotter - spotter is a cross-platform application which will be released also on windows.

              Quicksilver was the app that inspired Alfred, LaunchBar, Gnome-Do, and I think much of the “launcher” market.

              It was a fantastic app in its heyday, but unfortunately lost some of it’s quality as macOS progressed and it didn’t quite keep up. It also depended on compiled, typically Objective-C, plugins, which is not how most newer plugin systems are working now, with Node, Python, Lua, etc, being more typical.

                I remember using LaunchBar in the Mac OS 7 days (mid-1990s). It well pre-dates Quicksilver.

                  Apologies, I didn’t know that! Thanks!

                Another open source thing like Alfred is Albert, might be worth checking out for further inspiration.

                  Great app, but looks ugly tbh

              3. 2

                I’ve been using Quicksilver for the past 15 years, and I just can’t switch to anything else. I might not be using it’s full potential, but for quickly starting an app or getting me contacts/calculations/files, it’s invaluable.

                Only for Mac OS?

                1. 1

                  Yes, at the moment

                1. 6

                  This is practically the exact same procedure as the one described by an Atlassian post on the same subject.

                  1. 5

                    Seems like the original source of both posts is a HN comment.

                    1. 1

                      I think any article that talks about dotfiles is very similar.
