Katapult is an application for KDE, written in C++, designed to allow faster access to applications, bookmarks, and other items. It is plugin-based, so it can launch anything that is has a plugin for. Its display is driven by plugins as well, so its appearance is completely customizable. It was inspired by Quicksilver for OS X.

Use alt+space and start typing - you'll be presented with an option to launch something depending on what you've typed.

For example, hit alt+space then type "a" "m" (hit the two keys - no spaces or quotes) and this should offer to launch amarok - hit enter to launch

If you have no notification-area icon - then hit alt+space then ctrl+c to bring up the case-sensitive menu to allow you to configure katapult

We now have a wiki - http://katapult.kde.org/wiki/

 Adding programs?

How do I add progrqams to the programs catalogue? When I do alt-space and type K M A I Kmail doesn't come up... Do I need ot somehow update the programs in a databese? Do Katapult only look in specific locations for programs?

 Amazing app!

Thanks for this amazing app! I wonder if it will learn which apps do i access the most. For example, i use more kmail than kmag, so [k][m][a] could lead to kmail automagically. Thanks a lot!!

great work and idea guys. I hate mouse and im i big fun of doing things with the keyboard using shortcuts.

I have one silly comment to make. Launch firefox takes a lot of typing because first tries to launch the "firefox central" so one has to type firefox W... until it resolves that it should be executed firefox web browser.

Once again, good work

had the same problem, you can bypass typing f [space] w. Katapult search for a program name beginning con f and as second name w: firefox web browser. Worked for me also with open office: op [space] s --> openoffice spreadsheet

 web shortcuts

Hey guys! Thanks for developing katapult, I think it's really great! I was wondering if there was some way to do things like google and wikipedia searches directly from katapult. The kde minicli (alt-f2) for example allows you to do things like

gg: smokey the bear

for a google search, and i find myself using that all the time. In addition, they have shortcuts such as "wp:" for wikipedia, "en2fr:" for translations and such. The wiki seems to be down and i found information from google on katapult a bit sparse ^_^

Katapult is a great app for somebody like me who is addicted to Quicksilver on the Mac and wanted something similar on Linux.

I just noticed that the web page:


is returning 404's though?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
