This is a quick presentation of features which comes with first public release.

Launcher

With Launcher you can easily navigate to various locations. Launcher is available always in Sitecore context.

You can feel the great power of Launcher when you are using it in Content Editor. Forget about jumping from one tab to another. Use intelligent fuzzy search engine and execute any command from the Ribbon.

Information: Each command defines whether it can be executed or not. So on particular page you will see only those commands that can be successfully invoked.

Current database name will be displayed in the Sitecore header.

‘Database Color’

Depending on your current database Sitecore header will change its color to warn you.

Got a nice idea for module/command? Create new ticked on project github page.
