Allow running shell commands OR passing arguments and switches


#1

Like the behavior of run window and start menu, so that the following are possible:

ping google.com
winword /a (to start without addins)
cmd /k ipconfig
cmd /k ping google.com
pip install numpy

It’s frustrating to have to create a custom command to do this for every possibility, instead of just being able to do it on-the-fly

here is Wox’s implementation: https://github.com/Wox-launcher/Wox/wiki/Default-Plugins.-Command-line


#2

Doesn’t the {query} placeholder work for you?


#3

That’s for web searches. You can create a custom command with arguments, but it is not possible to execute a command on-the-fly. See the link for an example of what I’d like to accomplish with Listary.

This is very easy with a custom command:
