I am looking for the source code of Quickly so that I can better understand it and use that knowledge to build my application that interacts with the terminal.

Perhaps, you can try taking a look at the source code of quickly. To do that, run the following command in a terminal:

apt-get source quickly

For the command to work, you need to have enabled Source code in the software-properties-gtk.

Search for projects on Launchpad with the key word "quickly", there are few of them, copy the link to the ppa of that project and simpy do:

bzr branch ppa:/link/to/ppa
