Yesterday, I accepted a pull request and merged a commit into Rocket Menu that makes it possible to create menu items for running shell commands in a terminal. The commit adds a clever fake
cmd:// protocol for adding shell commands via the Connections Editor. An example of this would be:
I never intended for Rocket Menu to do this sort of thing, I just use it for opening SSH connections in Nautilus, but it’s interesting to see how others are using it.
A big thank you to Adam Wójs for developing the latest feature and taking the time to submit a the pull request. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
P.S. For anyone using Rocket Menu via its PPA, I’ve rebuilt the package and the new version is already available.
