Kupfer

Kupfer

Kupfer is software designed to change, speed up and make everything about files and programs more fun on your computer. Kupfer is heavily inspired by Quicksilver, utility software which is essentially a graphical shell for the OS X operating system aimed at improving user efficiency.

This software can search and browse your files, launch desired applications and object you need in a quicker way. Kupfer is written in Python and has a flexible architecture based on plugins to extend its features.

Kupfer's architecture is built around objects that can be acted on by actions.
