It's been a year since I am using Superhuman mail, and the command+k feature has been a time saver no doubt. Adding to this list is Vimcal, they have similar command+k shortcuts and feature and honestly, creating events are blazing fast and easy.
This gave me a thought and discussion topic that why doesn't other apps like salesforce, hubspot and many other SaaS tools provide the same feature to users? It would be make us users love the product even more.
Points to add on this ?
Strongly agree: You could easily convince me that every productivity app should have a command palette. When I'd researched the history of command palettes, it struck me how they common they've become. The Mac's menu Help search that lets you search for functions is similar to a command palette, as is the similar feature in Google Docs and Sheets. Alfred search and Spotlight does that for macOS; Windows search and Catana do that for Windows. Even Photoshop now has a tool to search for commands, even if it's a bit hidden.
Vimcal is intersting, both for its design and name, as the latter points to one of the earlier keyboard-driven interfaces. In Vim's case, though, you needed to remember every command; command palettes offload that with fuzzy search that let you search for the command you need. That's the huge innovation that's made command palettes—and text-driven interfaces—accessible. And it's a big part of what made Sublime Text appeal to a broader range of users than Vim.
There are a few Chrome add-ons that add command palettes to web apps; Streak recently added a command palette to Gmail. Apps like Paletro are trying to bring command palettes to every Mac app. I think we'll see more of those for sure. It'll be interesting though to see if/when other web apps and productivity software in general adopt the command palette.
Command palettes are absolutely something I think will show up as a new default feature in tomorrow's software.
Yes, totally agree. If you are a software developer there is a lot of benefits from a business perspective as well. We added both command palette, hotkeys for anything you do often, and '/'-command in Kitemaker.
Basically, teams that spend time and invest in learning in Kitemaker become very efficient, and since they don't want to re-invest or lose productivity we have next to nothing churn on these teams.
Markdown is the most popular way to format plain text. Add common characters like asterisks and dashes to text, much like how you might format a quick store list in your notes app or add emphasis ...
