Features

Homerun is a fullscreen launcher with content organized in tabs. A tab is composed of several "sources". A source can provide one or more sections to a tab. Homerun comes with a few built-in sources, but custom sources can be written using libhomerun.

Application launcher

Homerun can browse your installed applications and start them or add them to the favorite list to be able to quickly start them from the homepage.

Document hierarchy browser

Homerun lists your favorite places and let you browse them: clicking an item from the "Favorite Places" section will list the content of this folder, making it possible for you to navigate your folders to open a document without having to use a file manager.
