Ulauncher – lightweight application launcher

Ulauncher - lightweight application launcherFind launcher application for Linux is not so difficult. These applications managed with the keyboard, quite a lot, like music players and weather applets. Ulauncher is one of them. This is a small launcher application written in Python. It loads quickly, uses little resources and can run virtually any desktop environment (for example, it works fine in Openbox session with tint2).
Ulauncher makes the work almost the same way as other similar applications, for example, Albert, Synapse, Kupfer, Alawalk, Zazu…
App allows you to:

  • find and launch installed applications
  • browse folders and open files
  • activate the search in Google and Wikipedia
  • By default, you can open the application using Ctrl + Space.

Ulauncher is very fast and responsive, instantly displaying the search results. Does not lose speed by moving through the folders tree under search folders. You can assume a typo in app name or folder, and the app will still find what you need.
You can also set the app to remember previously selected applications and folders to choose the most relevant option in the search results.
Ulauncher - lightweight application launcherUlauncher comes with two built-in plugins for search in Google and Wikipedia. Simple enough to use: type ‘g’ before your search terms to search in Google, and use ‘w’ to search in Wikipedia.
