kupfer reborn

kupfer, a smart, quick launcher


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 is fun!
