Simply move Kitty Launcher to your applications folder.
Important: Before replacing the installed Kitty Launcher app with the newer version, backup your projects.
Once your projects have been backed up, install the new version of Kitty in your applications folder and follow the same steps to replace the projects list with your backed up copy.
Note: If you don’t back up your projects, you will have to re add them individually.
Can Kitty run on startup?
Yes, unfortunately, it is not a current feature in v 1.0. To configure Kitty Launcher to launch on startup, go to the Apple Icon -> System Preferences -> Users & Groups, then on the current user, go to “Login Items”, click the “+” icon and select Kitty Launch application. Kitty must be located within your applications folder.
After running the app, simply click on the Kitty icon in the menubar or use the shortcut (Command + Option + Control + K) to open Kitty Launcher and start adding your projects.
How do I add a project?
Can I bulk add projects?
Not directly through the application. However, all your projects are stored in a plist file. To edit the projects.plist,
I recommend adding at least one project through Kitty so you can see the structure. Each project will be a dictionary entry on the root.
<key>Your Awesome Project</key> <dict> <key>doPull</key> <string>1</string> <key>filePath</key> <string>/Users/myuser/Projects/Your Awesome Project</string> <key>openFinder</key> <string>0</string> </dict>
How do I launch my project?
After you have added your project(s), simply click on Kitty from the taskbar and start typing your project name. Then, click on your project or use the keyboard arrows to navigate down to select a project and hit return to launch.
How to I delete a project?
Open Kitty and click on the settings icon and go to “Preferences.” Click on the “Projects” tab, select a project and click “Remove”.
Note: You cannot undo this step. The good news is adding a project is so quick!
How do I switch the editor used?
Just go to the preferences > editor tab and switch the editor name. I advise you test the open command in terminal first.
View all known launch commands.
How do I switch the terminal app?
Just go to preferences > terminal tab and put the application name. I have tested this using iTerm but any terminal app should work. To use the default Mac OSX terminal, leave this blank.
