Description:

Yet another application launcher.
Start applications, search for things, do calculations or whatever you want through external plugins.

Internal plugins:
* Evaluate expressions (calculator)
* Find recently opened documents
* Find desktop applications
* Find executables
* Find local bookmarks
* Lists the content of folders
* Find files by indexing user-specified folders

External plugins:
higgins also supports plugins located in ~/.config/gambas3/higgins/extbin/, and since it parses the external plugin output, the plugins can be written in any language, even in bash.

Arch linux package "higgins-git" available in the AUR:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/higgins-git/
