indicator-applet

Bookmarks indicator available on Ubuntu that enables Ubuntu users access files and folders from within their status bar. It is written in python and is, therefore, no baffling a fact that it is swift in its execution.

Downloading Bookmarks Indicator

Presently, there isn;t any installer available for this nifty app but hey, don’t throw your hands in the air just yet -it’s a simple app to set up and run.

Firstly, download Indicator Bookmarks source from GitHub.

Next up, extract the folder when the download is complete and double-click to navigate inside.

Open the  config file in any text editor of your choice and edit/add all the paths to all the folders/files you want so as to make them accessible through the indicator menu, putting one per line.

Add --- where/if you want a menu separator to appear in the menu, like so:

$HOME/Documents
$HOME/Downloads
---
$HOME/Photos/Cats/Cookie.jpg
$HOME/Documents/Todo.txt

Hit save.

Lastly, open a new Terminal window and cd into the extracted folder to run the indicator like so:

cd ~/Downloads/bookmarks-indicator-master
python bookmarks-indicator.py

You are at liberty to customize the applet further via the following command-line flags:

 -i COLOR    icon color (default: '#010101')
 -c CONFIG   config file path (default: '<script-path>/config')
 -l LABEL    indicator label (default: '')
