Questions from Butch’s 10 minute talk

  1. Guna @alt_lv
    Thank you for your talk :slight_smile: how many times it takes to decide “this calls for handy script”?

Howdy folks here are the links from the 10min video. I hope this inspires some new ideas or speeds up someones workflow!

Great tips, though “I find your lack of [Linux options] disturbing” :wink:

To that end, here are a couple of Linux offerings:

Text Expanders
Espanso: A minimal text expansion app that doesn’t have a GUI, but uses the command line to set all configurations.
Autokey: It’s really a macro tool but it has a GUI specifically for text expanding.

Productivity Launchers
Albert: A flexible and powerful productivity app inspired by Alfred.
Ulauncher: A great application launcher that has a boat load of plugins that expand it’s functionality. It lacks Alfred’s workflows, but one can create one’s own launch scripts.


Thanks for filling in some blanks @haronniin ! If I had a linux box would have identified and added to the list, just didn’t want to add something I’d never used :slight_smile:
