#Poki Launcher

Work in progress

Poki Launcher is an application launcher for Linux. It tracks app usage then ranks apps based on frecency and fuzzy search. It's written in Rust and QML. I mostly made this for myself but if anyone else finds some use for it that'd be great.

#Configuration

To change any setting in the app copy the example config file installed at /usr/share/doc/packages/poki-launcher/poki-launcher.hjson if installed from the package other grab it from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zethra/poki-launcher/master/poki-launcher.hjson. Copy this file to ~/.config/poki-launcher/poki-launcher.hjson.

#Config Options

The list of config options and their defaults are in the example config file poki-launcher.hjson

#Trouble Shotting

Q An app isn't in the list

A If the app's desktop file is in a directory that's not in the app_paths list in the config file they won't show up. If the app was installed with flatpak or snap uncomment the lines for those in the example config file.

#Otherwise

If you have any issues with the app or a question send me and email detailing the issue at benaagoldberg@gmail.com with "POKI LAUNCHER ISSUE" in the subject line or create an issue on my github page.
