I'm developing in rails on my computer. I'm just going along with what tutorials say, and I simply cannot find anything about how to use launchy during development on the Internet .. period. There are two problems:

  • I'd like launchy to open Chromium (it opens Firefox). Chromium is set as my default browser.
  • I save files constantly, and launchy will run each time, which is terrible. Is there any way to only get it to run when you actually want? This also applies to guard, but it's not nearly as annoying with guard.

This should be moved to StackOverflow, you'll have better luck there. – William Apr 13 '12 at 1:52
@william potentially, yes. It is on-topic for here though. – James Apr 13 '12 at 10:55
