An alt+space launcher for Windows, built with Electron.

I always dreamed of an alternative to Alfred on Windows, that is made with JavaScript. so, I made it.

Vision

It's a launcher with strict syntax (like terminal programs), it's not targeting to interpret natural language.
I believe the strict syntax can provide more powerful and fast response than to interpret natural language.
