  • sol

    MacOS launcher & command palette

    Sol is nice and then again it seems young and a bit lacking.

    File search https://github.com/ospfranco/sol/issues/45 or opening files / apps in finder is not yet possible.

    Did not understand how to alter search engine.

    Window manager does not allow to use screen quarters.

    Clearly this has huge potential. Maybe more developers will join the effort.

  • Quicksilver

    Quicksilver Project Source

    Good to see something like this, don't forget there is already an open source alternative (pre-existing) for Alfred and Raycast. It's called Quicksilver - https://qsapp.com

  • YosemiteDarkInterface-qsplugin

    Yosemite style Quicksilver plugin (Dark version)

  • hammerspoon

    Staggeringly powerful macOS desktop automation with Lua

    I use Hammerspoon

    https://www.hammerspoon.org/

    What makes it particularly useful is the breadth of coverage of functionality of the API and integration with OS features.

  • pinpoint

    Keystroke launcher and personal command central. Alternative to Spotlight and Alfred for Windows. Alternative to Wox, PowerToys. (by dkgv)

    I shared the exact same sentiment when I transitioned to Windows after a long period of only using macOS. I eventually began building a launcher myself using C# and over time it has become my daily driver. Feel free to check it out at https://github.com/dkgv/pinpoint, PRs welcome :-)

    A few other nice candidates I found include:

    - Keypirinha: https://keypirinha.com/

    - Wox: https://github.com/Wox-launcher/Wox

    - ueli: https://github.com/oliverschwendener/ueli
