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.
