Fliger (The Linux Spotlight)

What is Fliger?

Fliger is an Open Source Electron Based App mainly focused as a productivity booster for Linux Based Operating Systems. The Spotlight Feature on macOS made me yearn and look for open-source alternatives on Linux. But, I found only two of them - Albert Launcher and CerebroApp. This made me create Fliger.

Fliger means Flying, It's so fast, even faster than Spotlight, resolves queries in real-time as soon as you type letters in the box. Fliger is where -

All in a jiffy, within the blink of an eye, at the press of a letter.

Marquer is an Open Source Application written for the Elementary OS 6 Series. It features Hassle-Free Bootable Image Flashing, Designed for elementary OS. Marquer features one of the best User Experience while creating Bootable Images. At the time of writing, Marquer was the only application which used native elementary OS Design Libraries (Granite) and elementary OS Design Principles. The app is written completely using Vala.

Vala is a programming language that combines the high-level build-time performance of scripting languages with the run-time performance of low-level programming languages. It aims to bring modern programming language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional runtime requirements and without using a different ABI, compared to applications and libraries written in C. The syntax of Vala is similar to C#, modified to better fit the GObject type system.[4]
