What is "tll"

tll is a very minimal application launcher for Linux based systems.

If you are on Mac try QuickSilver, on Windows try Launchy or SlickRun.


Just place tll somewhere in your path and edit ~/.tllrc.


Assign a keystroke to invoke it [1] and you're done.

tll has a simple history, hit <UP-ARROW> or <DOWN-ARROW> to scroll the history.

Configuration File

$HOME/.tllrc has the following syntax:

# tll Aliases

www = firefox
mail = thunderbird
term = Terminal
oo = soffice
im = pidgin
