LiftOff - an idea for a new launcher
Closed, WontfixPublic


LiftOff is an attempt to create a simple fullscreen application launcher, slightly based off of Mac OS "Launchpad" - the base usage is to easily find and launch your applications in a setting which is easy to use both for keyboards and touchscreens. One addendum was the "quicksettings" from Android where you have quick touch access to settings like "volume" and "screen brightness". The focus is put clearly on simplicity and we will rather wittle down the complex parts than add to them.

Looks like we're going to tackle this from a convergence angle in T8753. The goal is to create a launcher that can "change its spots" so to speak and function well in a traditional desktop environment but also morph into a full screen launcher akin to macOS LaunchPad and GNOME's Activities Overview if desired.
