kupfer, a convenient command and access tool
Kupfer is an interface for quick and convenient access to applications and their documents.
The most typical use is to find a specific application and launch it. We have tried to make Kupfer easy to extend with plugins so that this quick-access paradigm can be extended to many more objects than just applications.
We hope that using Kupfer feels both very fun and different.
Flattr is a simple way to show appreciation for Kupfer or other instances of free and open source software and free culture. If you have a larger contribution in mind, please redirect it to Free Software Foundation or Wikimedia.
