Kando will be a pie menu for the desktop. It will be highly customizable and will allow you to create your own menus and actions. For instance, you can use it to control your music player, to open your favorite websites or to simulate shortcuts.

It will be available for Windows, Linux and maybe macOS.

    npm? So this uses electron? I essentially run a stripped down browser to render a fucking OSD? I can’t do that with good conscience.

      npm means it’s a JS app running on a JS runtime, which is roughly similar to what python does. Electron runs on top of the runtime and indeed provides some kind of stripped down browser.

      But yeah, in this case the app does use electron :)

    I wonder what’s the difference between this and Fly Pie, like, why did he stop developing the first and started the latter.

      I have been working on Fly-Pie for more than 3 years now and I am very happy with the result. However, I have always wanted to create a similar application for the desktop in general. This is why I started this project.

    Has anyone here tried Kando yet? Looks like a very nice tool. How does it compare to typical keyboard shortcuts?

      This project is currently in a very early stage of development. Kando is not yet a functional menu but rather a prototype which demonstrates the feasibility of the concept.

      Since Kando is still in early development, it might be a good idea to look at the Gnome Extension Fly-Pie. It’s from the same developer and it looks like Kando will be similar.
