After getting frustrated with GNOME-Do's memory hogging, I switched to Kupfer. Kupfer is a lightweight, extensible application launcher like Do (as it is now called) but much more powerful and easier to extend (it is written in python).

My Plugins

So far, I've written the following plugins:

  1. This plugin allows you to send messages from Kupfer through Gwibber (with no configuration).

  2. This plugin allows you to pause, play, skip, and go backwards in Exaile. It is based on the Rhytmbox plugin.

+1: I did not write this plugin (although I did do a fair bit of editing). The Evolution plugin adds an evolution contact source (and works with the built in email plugin).
