Niceee! Github has brought in the command pallet. This is awesome. I think majority of GUI software need to implement command pallet hopefully with the same uniform keyboard shortcut.
Software categories who should consider this imho: are
- browsers (similar to what Vivaldi has done)
- text editors and IDEs (e.g Kate)
- photo editors (e.g Krita)
- video editors
- file browsers
- chat applications (e.g Element, @dino)
- music players (e.g @nuclear, Amarok, Cantata)
- PDF editors (e.g Okular)
I think @gitea and ultimately @codeberg can also plan bringing the command pallet feature which is very useful and handy. Perhaps it would also help with the server load as users don't load multiple pages to navigate but rather use the command pallet to jump to repos and issues with a very minimal Ajax requests to the server.
Wish I knew how I could help though.
But there is a drastic huge difference between keyboard shortcuts and command pallet. Basically shortcuts is a limited set of functions and actions maps to a key binding that the user should remember be heart, where as command pallet is a fuzzy search box that can call actions, but it can also accept complex multi-step commands with some arguments and also can help in navigation. A command pallet is potentially an ad-hoc CLI interface inside a GUI.
