A plugin for Launchy to put Tomboy note titles in the catalog
Launchy Tomboy Plugin
I have tested this setup with:
Make sure the above requirements are met
install this package using pip, easy_install, or the .exe installer
create a file like the one below:
# this file should reside at # <Launchy program dir>\plugins\python\pytomboy.py from os import environ as ose import launchy # uncomment this line if you want debug messages from LaunchyTomboyPlugin # to go to <Launch program dir>\plugins\python\stdout.txt #ose['LAUNCHY_TOMBOY_DEBUG'] = '1' from launchytomboyplugin import Tomboy launchy.registerPlugin(Tomboy) print 'Tomboy plugin registered'
start or restart Launchy
- LAUNCHY_TOMBOY_DEBUG: set to enable debug info in the stdout.txt (see below)
- TOMBOY_PROGRAM_PATH: set to the full path to Tomboy.exe if your Tomboy install is in a non-standard location.
Keep theses files in mind when trying to troubleshoot problems:
- <Launchy program dir>\plugins\python\stdout.txt
- <Launchy program dir>\plugins\python\stderr.txt
Using the Plugin
This plugin inserts two static items into the Launchy catalog:
- Tomboy New Note
- Tomboy Search Notes
It will also index the title of every Tomboy note and make it available as an item in the Launchy catalog. So if you have a note with a title of “ToDo List” typing “ToDo List” in Launchy should bring up that item. Hitting enter will open the corresponding Tomboy note.
Note: the plugin rebuilds the list of note titles whenever Launchy rebuilds its catalog. The auto-refresh time period can be set in Launchy options. A manual refresh of the catalog can also be triggered, see Launchy docs for more info.
If Tomboy is not running and two Tomboy related commands are issued quickly in succession, its possible the second Tomboy instance will crash. Once Tomboy is up and running, this is no longer an issue.
Workaround: be patient the first time you use a Tomboy related item with Launchy to give the Tomboy process that is started time to fully initialize.
