@andrizmitnick
@ueffel ah i see. btw maybe do you know if it's possible to customize the launch/context menu option, like adding "open with", "open with argument", etc?
somehow can't find it on docs
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@andrizmitnick http://keypirinha.com/first.html#specify-arguments for arguments and http://keypirinha.com/first.html#actions although the screenshot there is a bit outdated, there are more actions in the newest version. You can't customize the actions further (yet, follow #95) If you really need more actions your only option is to do it in a seperate plugin.

Hello! I had a question about the Apps plugin. I've defined custom commands named [cmd/bt-git-api], but Keypirinha doesn't seem to find them. Did I do that wrong?
Robert Herrick
@rdherric
I should clarify. If I type in bt-git-api, I expected to see the Custom Command show up in the Catalog. I've since discovered that if I type some of the item_label text, the Custom Commands come up. Is that expected and I just misunderstood?

Hi Everyone, is there a way to change Everything module name or alias it to something like ev: rather than Everything:
I can't seem to find docs for that maybe someone can point me in the right direction
I don't mind reading it's just that I can find the stuff I need, googling didn't help either.
and is there a way to prioritize or rank higher apps over the file and folder results when searching in the default window
without opening them to improve ranking in results
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@rdherric Keypirinha only searches in the item_label. Your, let's call it technical name, bt-git-api is only used as item label, if you leave item_label unconfigured.
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@asolopovas there is currently no way to configure the item label Everything: to anything else, sorry. There is also no customization of the matching algorithm possible at the moment.
Robert Herrick
@rdherric
@ueffel Thanks for the clarification. I am actually trying to update the Apps package to support showing the item_label bit, but also search on target. Not sure how successful I will be. I'll update later.

Hi, in the normal windows start menu I'm used to using 'Ctrl+Shift+Enter' to Run as administrator.
I know I can use 'Ctrl+Enter' to get to the additional options and select Run as admin from there.
I'm wondering if there is a way to bind 'Ctrl+Shift+Enter' to the Run as admin additional option?
Andrius Solopovas
@asolopovas
@ueffel Thanks for the answer.

What's the easiest way to transfer settings across computers? I got everything set up on my desktop, and would like to have the same plugins/configurations on my laptop.
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@spartanhooah copy the %APPDATA%/Keypirinha (installed mode) or the <Keypirinha_HOME>/portable (portable mode) directory over to your laptop

@spartanhooah
@ueffel Thanks!

Hey there! I got a question that is not covred antwhere in the docs
How to add simple items? Like, launching a portable app not installed on the system?
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@anonymous1184 You can configure custom directories to be scanned via the FilesCatalog Package. Something along the lines of Example 2 should be what you need.
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
Hi all, i made two new packages: An Updater Package for all of us that don't use chocolatey and have to update manually. (It's shelling out unpacking so WinRAR or 7zip are required). And I made a Binary Flags Package more targetted for developers that may need to disassemble value into the indiviual binary flags.
anonymous1184
@anonymous1184
@ueffel Hey, thanks for the answer... currently I have 81 instances of the same name executable (an app launcher), how can I differenciate between all of them (I really don't want to type the path or see the same icon or even worst, change the name and icon for each launcheer). Is it doable? I currently use Executor, I was thinking that maybe Keypiriña would replace it.
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@anonymous1184 have a look at Example 3 There you can specify the label of the cataloged items (The label is the first line of the list entries, it's also the part that is searched). I suggest you configure something with {dir1}, {dir2} or {dir3}. I for example have this configured:
[profile/Apps]
paths =
    C:\Apps\**
inherit = ExeOnly
file_item_label = {3dirs}\{clean_name}
max_depth = 4
activate = yes

I'm going to use Keypirinha for search portable apps where store on multiple folders across different drive. I have installed the portable version. And I have added custom folders in file catalog config file. Now I could search my portable apps. However I dont want the default search for application installed thru windows installer or web browser url search and so for. How to disable those default searching stuffs ?

@nikess
Hi there. Just discovered keypirinha. Super cool . Is there any package that allows ability to switch directly to a tab within chrome? Like task switcher, but for already open browser tabs.... thanks
Marcus
@marcus-at-localhost
@nikess not that I'm aware of (I guess you already tried something like this: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/quick-tabs/jnjfeinjfmenlddahdjdmgpbokiacbbb ?)
nikess
@nikess
ok sounds like I'd have to write a chrome plugin to expose that info, and then a KP package to connect to that plugin
on the file browser package - I typically don't use Explorer, but another app ( Total Commander/ Double Commander). is there a way to customize what the "open" command actually does in KP? i.e. here I'd like it to instead launch that alternative app (with the target as a parameter)

Hey all. I've just moved over to a Windows 10 computer. I moved over my config files and it's running great. For some reason though, it's not showing Windows Update. It'll show Control Panel, Services, Device Manager, etc. Just not Windows Update. What dumb error have I made? Thanks!

Hi everyone. I've just followed the first steps from the docs and cannot observe the steps 4.4 and 4.5. No matter how often I type and open vivaldi via the launchbox, it does not seem to associate v with vivaldi. Do I need to activate that feature?
Adrian Bielefeldt
@Adrian-Bielefeldt
Figured out what I did wrong: I have to type v, then select vivaldi in the dropdown and that associates it. That way it is very difficult to associate files with a specific keyword, because I have to find it searching for one or two letters only.
Is there a way to search for a full file name (e.g. Document.odt) and have this associated with the starting letter(s) (e.g. d, do?).
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@Maddest-Max Windows Update isn't a classic ControlPanel element anymore. You can https://github.com/ueffel/Keypirinha-WindowsApps to have a lot of the new windows settings, including Windows Update
@Adrian-Bielefeldt you can assciate Document.odt with just d if it in the result list. In my experience you need 3 letters to find things.

@nikess the file_explorer setting seems to be what you are after

Hi everyone, I just tried adding the simple profile example to the files catalog package and I'm not seeing contents in the catalog, not seeing anything in the console from files catalog other than "Plugin loaded: FilesCatalog.FilesCatalog (instance #1)", whether restarting the application altogether, reloading configuration, refreshing catalog, even with debug = yes.

Just added this simple profile right below debug = yes

[profile/Docs]
activate = yes
paths = G:\Evan

Jeff Axelrod
@glenviewjeff
Ugh, RTFM. I was editing the read-only ini file, which apparently is ignored if modified inline.
Maddest-Max
@Maddest-Max
@ueffel Ahhhhh. Makes sense! I’ll give it a shot. Thank you!
nikess
@nikess
@polyvertex thanks - that's perfect

Hi all - anyone know why Windows Terminal is not showing up in Keypirinha? It's in the start menu and according to the apps.ini the start menu is scanned by default. thanks!
Alexander Eberts
@aeberts
I just figured it out. For others looking for an answer to this problem - Windows Terminal Preview is a Universal Windows App (UWA). ueffel has a package that handles UWAs here. To install the UWA package use ueffel's PackageControl. Windows Terminal appears in the list moments after installation. yay!
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
wt.exe which also starts the windows terminal should be accessable without my package :)

Can anyone tell me why I can't search for my xlsx (excel) file. Every other file seems to work well
badmeowers
@badmeowers
opening up keypirinha and pressing "e" causes it to crash - no clue why
Jeff Axelrod
@glenviewjeff
Wondering if there's any feasible way to force the short-name match for commands. E.g. when you type w, it matches Microsoft word. Problem with doing it automatically in this example is that the letter w gets too many matches, and Word never shows up. Someone else asked this recently as well, but I can't remember where to look to see if it was answered.
Jeff Axelrod
@glenviewjeff
So it was @Adrian-Bielefeldt who had the same question in this chat room, which hasn't received an answer. I'll submit a github issue to deal w/this scenario.

@AbhishekTripathi
Is it possible to alias an extension? I am using https://github.com/DrorHarari/keypirinha-ppl and I don't like ppl:mail or ppl:call keywords. I would like to alias them to mail and im without modifying the source of extension.
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@AbhishekTripathi you have to contact the developer of the package to make this configurable

@malys
Hi, I want to make an HTTP POST from my plugin. For GET method, i use opener = kpnet.build_urllib_opener(). Could you provide an example? Thx.
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@malys See here
Basically you make a urllib request with your data to post and then use the opener to do the request
import urllib
import keypirinha_net as kpn

data = urllib.parse.urlencode({ "key": "value" }).encode()
req = urllib.request.Request(<url>, data=data)
opener = kpnet.build_urllib_opener()
with opener.open(req) as response:
    ...
Malys
@malys
@ueffel Perfect!! Thx
Malys
@malys
I have released a new version of keypirinha-rocketchat . It's currently possible to send message from KP.
Steffen Brüheim
@ueffel
@malys if you want PackageControl to pick up on it, you'll have to add a new github release with the package file. Also the build directory in the repository is not needed.
Malys
@malys
@ueffel Done Thx.
